4 Trending Dresses That Will Still Look as Good in 2023

It’s our job to pore over the trends so that you don’t have to, separating the sure-to-be-short-lived from the enduring, and that’s exactly what we’re presenting you with here. Cue four key styles of dresses (because who doesn’t love the ease of a dress?) that we tipped as winners in our autumn 2022 trend report and that are looking like they’ll go the distance.

As we know all too well, the good weather on our shores can be short-lived, and before we know it, those temperatures will be cooling right down, so we’re thinking about dresses that can take us into the transitional time while still ticking off the trend-conscious box. From fuchsia hues to maxi hemlines, discover what styles our money is on below.

1. Silky Slip

Slip dresses are the #1 eveningwear choice this season, but they've also been given the daytime treatment—just throw a chunky jumper and step into a pair of thick-soled boots.

2. Barbiecore Pink

You may have noticed hot pink and fuchsia tones are everywhere right now. We're certain this will continue as we move through autumn/winter, so start looking for your perfect LPD (little pink dress).

3. Animal Instinct

Zebra, tiger, cheetah, dalmation—it doesn't matter which animal print you have a penchant for; it'll fit right in with the season's trends. Wear with pared-back accessories to let the pattern pop.

4. Maximum Impact

Extreme hemlines seem to be a thing right now. On the one hand, '60s-style minis are causing a stir, but we also adore the parade of longline dresses populating 'new in' feeds.
