Fashion Trends That Will Be Everywhere This Spring 2023


While it may seem odd to be considering spring fashion trends in February, last year has taught us that time flies and it’s best to plan ahead. Plus, thinking about our upcoming wardrobe is a great way to escape the constant chatter about “new year, new me”. Thankfully, the fashion industry is always ahead of the game, with its spring/summer 2023 runways already taking place in September and forecasting our fashion choices for the new season. By staying on top of these trends, we can be prepared for the upcoming fashion season without being caught off guard.

While you may not typically wear an anthurium flower as a brooch or carry a massive clutch bag on a quiet Tuesday morning in the office (unless you’re a die-hard Loewe or Louis Vuitton fan), the seasonal runways are an incredible source of inspiration. These catwalk shows may feature extravagant accessories that aren’t practical for everyday wear, but their influence on fashion trends should not be underestimated. Regardless of where you typically shop, it’s highly likely that these trends will impact the fashion industry. So, what can we expect for the upcoming spring/summer 2023 season?

The pink trend of 2022 will give way to a softer, pastel variation, while black and cobalt blue are poised to be the surprise standout colors of the upcoming fashion season. Low-rise waistlines and sheer fabrics will be popular for those seeking a more sensual look, while florals will receive a three-dimensional update for a bolder statement.
For those who can’t wait for spring, the winter party season offers plenty of opportunities to try out daring styles, from sultry boudoir-inspired eveningwear to dazzling sequins and glamorous party bags. Investing in upcoming spring trends ahead of time can be a smart move to make the most of your fashion purchases. Want to stay ahead of the curve? Take a look at the 13 fashion trends that are set to take over our wardrobes come spring.

Sheer Joy

sheer joy

Sheer fabrics have been a popular trend for several fashion seasons, but they’re set to take center stage for spring/summer 2023. From overlays on top of simple evening slips to more daring lingerie-inspired pieces, sheer fabrics provide a seductive way to layer and add an alluring element to any outfit. This trend is a departure from the typical use of revealing hemlines and plunging necklines to create a sexy look.
The trend has been spotted at a variety of designer shows, including Erdem, Prada, Victoria Beckham, Molly Goddard, Miu Miu, Valentino, Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Rejina Pyo, Nensi Dojaka, Cecilie Bahnsen, Susan Fang, Sinead O’Dwyer, KNWLS, Tom Ford, Sandy Liang, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Huishan Zhang, Fendi, and Acne Studios.


low rise waists

The low-slung waistline trend that was popular in the 90s is officially back in style. From jeans to suits, shorts to evening skirts, the low-rise look has made a comeback, which means high-rise clothing may be taking a break for summer 2023. To complete the look, consider pairing your low-rise bottoms with a crop top to show off your midriff.

This trend has been spotted at various fashion shows, including Givenchy, Stella McCartney, Zimmermann, Proenza Schouler, Nensi Dojaka, and Sandy Liang.


high octane sequins

Traditionally, the holiday season in December has been associated with the use of sequins to add glitz and glamour to festive parties. However, SS23 (spring/summer 2023) is breaking tradition and declaring itself the perfect time to wear sequins. This time around, the trend is taking on a softer, lighter color palette, with pale pinks, nudes, and pastels dominating the scene.

Several fashion shows have featured this trend, including Nensi Dojaka, 16Arlington, Huishan Zhang, Chet Lo, Valentino, Area, Michael Kors, Tom Ford, Brandon Maxwell, Halpern, Richard Quinn, and Chloé.


cobalt blue

After dominating the fashion scene in 2022, fuchsia is taking a backseat to a vibrant cobalt blue for the upcoming SS23 season. The bold shade is making a comeback in a big way, gracing the runways in various forms, from jackets to dresses and boots. With its eye-catching appeal, this trend is one to embrace before it fades away and we revert to our trusty neutrals.

This trend was spotted at fashion shows such as David Koma, Cecilie Bahnsen, Alexander McQueen, and Richard Quinn.


boudoir detailing

This season, get ready to embrace your sultry side as boudoir-inspired elements take center stage in eveningwear. While it may not be suitable for all occasions, the trend offers a variety of options to experiment with. From subtly sexy slips featuring delicate lace detailing to bold looks complete with hold-up stockings and lace gloves, there’s something for everyone.

party bags

Gone are the days of the humble party bag filled with sweets and cheap toys. SS23 welcomes a new era of extravagant evening bags, dripping in embellishments and designed to be the focal point of your outfit. These bags are all about making a statement, and they do so with the bold use of materials and textures that demand attention.

Seen at: (L-R) Paco Rabanne, Fendi & Jil Sander – as well as Valentino, Hermes, Khaite, JW Anderson & Victoria Beckham.
