7 Simple 2023 Trends That'll Make Your Outfits So Much Better

Fashion should be fun—not hard or confusing. It should be attainable, and it should bring you joy. For this story, we're focusing on easy trends for 2023 that will hopefully make you happy, make your outfits better, and don't require much effort at all. Perhaps your next question is, "So what types of trends do all of these things?" When choosing easy trends, look for colors, accessories, and silhouettes that are high impact but that you don't even need to think about how to style.

It happens to be the case that more than a few of the early 2023 trends fit these criteria, and they're already shippable. Some are holdovers from last year, but they'll certainly keep heating up this season and beyond. So without further ado, read on to familiarize yourself with the trends and shop the ones that suit your life (and wardrobe) the best.
