9 2023 Trends You Can Start Wearing Now



The thing about working in fashion is that you tend to have one foot in the present season and the other firmly planted in the upcoming season. We may still be in December, but we're already getting excited about (and documenting in full force!) the big trends we have to look forward to in 2023. Knowing what styles will be popular in the upcoming season unquestionably helps inform our current fashion purchases too. As we break down all the looks that sashayed down the spring/summer 2023 runways, we wanted to share nine major trends that you can actually buy into and start wearing now before they're everywhere. Below, we're highlighting the 2023 runway trends that are worthy of your wardrobe and totally wearable now, from romantic florals to cool cargos. Shop our picks below to stay ahead of the fashion curve.

Crazy for Cargo

Functional and cool, cargo pieces continue their dominance in 2023. The newest iterations come with plenty of pockets and in a fresh wave of styles—think cargo skirts, cargo jackets, cargo vests in neutral and bold hues. It's set to be a utilitarian season.

Denim for Days



There was certainly no lack of denim looks on the spring/summer 2023 runways. We saw layered head-to-toe outfits from designers such as Chloé and Khaite along with long-denim-skirt silhouettes from Givenchy and Blumarine. Not to mention a good dose of denim dresses and the growingly popular low-rise jeans. Oh, and even denim scarves! The moral of this story is the more denim the better in 2023.

Pretty Romantic

Florals, bows, pastels… oh my! The 2023 version of the "pretty" trend offers up a fresh array of dainty, romantic, and delicate details on everything from dresses to accessories. Lean into 3D rosettes, romantic lace, and sweet, soft pastel shades—touches you can easily add to your winter wardrobe now and continue to wear throughout the year.

Duster Coats

If you haven't invested in a long, tailored coat yet, now is the time. Floor-sweeping toppers were seen all over the spring/summer 2023 runways in relaxed menswear-inspired silhouettes. Wear over trousers and sweaters now and with miniskirts and blouses on warmer days to come.

Sleek, Simple, and Streamlined Tailoring

Suiting as a trend is not exactly new, but for 2023 designers such as Jil Sander, Peter Do, Ferragamo, and The Row, to name but a few, celebrated low-key luxury tailoring—clean lines, beautiful fabrics, and timeless silhouettes.

Shimmer and Shine

If you bought into shimmery sparkles and metallics for the festive season, then don't push them away to the back of the closet yet. Designers showed us that metallics are not just reserved for festive holiday soirées. A fresh range of shimmering gold and silver pieces has given the metallic trend a fresh new lease on life in 2023 with year-round longevity. So let your outfits shine and shimmer in the New Year.

Creative Layering


Miu Miu/Imaxtree

For the year ahead, designers are encouraging us to reimagine how we style our basics with plenty of luxe, cool, and elevated layering techniques. Layer your jersey tees over your dresses, or add a tube skirt over leggings. The more inventive, the better.

All-Black Everything


Dries Van Noten/Imaxtree

There were over 4000 black looks walking the runway, according to Net-a-Porter's spring/summer 2023 trend report—proving that black will be the dominant shade in the year ahead. From glorious gowns to chic tailored pieces, you simply can't go wrong with a head-to-toe black look no matter what season we're in.

Sheer Knits

The sheer trend is here to stay, and in 2023, we're particularly seeing this play out with gauzy knits. From Prada to Miu Miu, we saw tissue-thin see-through knitting on tops, skirts, and dresses. Work the trend into your wardrobe right now, and wear a sheer knit top over a bra or tank and add a blazer or leather bomber for a cool layered look.
