It can be pretty tricky trying to keep up to date with every new trend — after all, things move pretty quickly in the world of fashion. If you're looking for the latest fashion trends, however, you've surely arrived at the right place! As 2023 approaches, brands ranging from bargain to haute couture are beginning to drop their 2023 collections, and we've already started to see some exciting new style trends promising to be everywhere.
We've compiled a list of the biggest new trends we expect to see over the course of the next year, and we're prepared to discuss everything from tassels to leather to fur to sequins and more. One thin appears to be for certain — in 2023, fashion promises to be bigger and bolder than ever, and with a distinct throwback to fashion days gone by. So, without further ado, let's delve into the trends you'll want to add to your wardrobe in 2023.
Expect to see a lot of leather
Leather is officially in for 2023. As StyleCaster noted, leather jackets were everywhere during this year's New York fashion week, along with both mini and maxi leather skirts. In 2023, leather won't just be reserved for the winter — it will also be making appearances in the summer and spring, too, with colorful mini leather skirts, leather shorts, and even leather crop tops appearing on the shelves. As Tiffany Hsu, vice president of womenswear and kidswear fashion buying at Mytheresa, told Vogue, "We're generally more used to seeing leather feature heavily in autumn/winter, but this time around, it was on almost every runway, showing us that the seasons aren't as set in stone as they once were."......

Ballet flats are back in style
Let's face it — ballet flats haven't always been in favor of the fashion world. The dainty, girly shoes were extremely popular in the 1950s when Brigitte Bardot popularized them. They then came back into fashion in the 2000s. Now, with a resurgence in the "French girl" look, the shoes seem to be coming back (via Refinery29). "The ballet flat was definitely an aughts staple," fashion writer and ballet flat enthusiast Tyler McCall told said. "I can think of so many tabloid moments, whether it was Amy Winehouse in literal ballet slippers or Alexa Chung in a pair of denim cutoffs and bright Chanel flats. We're all about mining that nostalgia at the moment."...... [More]
Fur coats are going to be in style in 2023
High drama and Golden Age Hollywood glamor are back. And that means fur coats are making a comeback, too — at least, fake fur coats are. According to Cosmopolitan, the ultra-cozy look has been popping up everywhere lately. Try to update the classic look by opting for a colorful fur coat or a coat with a subtle faux fur collar.......

Knee-high 1990s boots are back in
As fashion fans probably already know, trends tend to be cyclical, going in and out of style every few decades. Well, one old trend seems to come back into fashion in 2023 — 1990s boots. As Hello! noted, Hailey Bieber is leading the charge. In October 2022, she appeared at the WSJ Tech Live Conference wearing a stunning pair of knee-high heeled leather boots with a pointed toe that screamed 1990. .... [More]
We'll be seeing a lot of clogs
Wait — clogs are back in? Clogs were the epitome of a fashion faux pas for a long time. But as the BBC noted earlier this year, they have become the "style statement of the year." Why? Well, according to clog superfan and editor at US Vogue, Lauren Mechling, "There are multiple factors that have converged into a perfect storm of the clog's comeback, the first being that, in our post-#girlboss moment, feminism isn't just in fashion, but is ingrained in the culture like never before."......

Make it sheer
Yet another bold trend for 2023 is the all-things-sheer trend. That's right — next year, you can expect to see a lot of see-through tops and dresses. According to StyleCaster, this trend started with Fendi's Fall/Winter 2022 collection. Fendi featured numerous sheer maxi dresses on the runway, and suddenly, everyone seemed to be hooked on delicate, see-through fabrics. ...... [More]
Jeans are going to be baggier than ever
Remember a few years ago when it was announced that skinny jeans were out? Well, it seems that skinny jeans are still off-limits for anyone who's trying to follow the latest trends. In fact, this year, the general rule is the baggier, the better. There's never been a better time to pull out those grunge jeans and those mom jeans from the back of your closet....... [More]
Sequins and sparkle are in
With Taylor Swift's shimmery tenth album "Midnights" breaking streaming records, it seems that we're all in the mood for some glitz and glamor. Just like Swift's new disco-inspired "Midnights" era, 2023 promises to be full of sparkle. That's right — according to WWD, sequins are well and truly in. As Elle noted, designers like Tom Ford, Nensi Dojaka, Area, and Michael Kors have all jumped aboard the sequins train. This year, it's all about high-drama glitter, so go for a maximalist look. Think big colors, bold cuts, and, of course, sequins everywhere....... [More]
The color purple will be everywhere
Trying to decide on which new color to add to your wardrobe? The jury is in, and it's official — purple is the next new It-girl color. As InStyle noted, the color was absolutely everywhere during New York Fashion Week, with designers like PatBO, Coach, Caroline Herrara, Tory Burch, and Prabal Gurung all showing off bold, popping shades of purple on the runway. Actress Florence Pugh also embraced the trend during the Venice Film Festival when she appeared in a stunning all-purple set by Valentino, complete with purple shoes and a purple bag. Other celebs, including Sandro Oh and Lily-Rose Depp, followed suit.
In fact, it seems that purple has become so popular it's on its way to taking the place of pink in the fashion world (via Vogue). Purple is also making its way into the beauty industry (via Elle) — so next time you try making your own monochromatic purple look, you can even add a dash of purple eyeshadow to complete the effect.......
