We have three words for you when it comes to the 2023 spring season: Bigger. Brighter. Bolder. Gone are the days of staying in your lane when it comes to fashion. This is the season where unapologetic individuality reigns supreme. So toss the map in your backseat, and let audacious, vibrant, energetic colors take the wheel as we step into a new era of fashion.
Confidence is as crucial as color when it comes to pulling a one-of-a-kind outfit together making the sky the limit for high-octane attention seekers. There is no such thing as too many layers, and the less coordinated they are, the better.
There’s a newfound appreciation for fresh perspectives, and that includes reimagining timeless materials in energetic and unexpected hues. Natural materials wrapped in exotic colors merge with homespun layers and free-spirited styles. Vibrant pastels, trippy tie-dye, and mesmerizing brights are used unapologetically and in unexpected ways.
Notes of nostalgia make themselves known through youthful shapes and symbols, serving as a reminder to keep things playful. Exaggerated icons such as hearts, stars, and flowers dominate the canvas with a nod to the girly-girl at heart.
Ultimately, this season invites us to embrace color-me-happy vibes and live out loud. And above all else — do what makes your heart happy!
The return to offices and in-person meetings necessitates a synergy between business attire and individuality. That’s why we’re taking business casual to a whole new level this season with a trend we call Playful Professional.
“Fun,” and “vibrant,” are probably not words you’d associate with the workplace, but this trend makes it feel like every ballpoint pen in the office has been swapped out for crayons. Colors in all shades add a hint of playfulness to the previously basic and boring.
Oversized blazers in shocking new hues drape over vests and baggy trousers for head-turning comfort. Industrial chains and exaggerated accessories go to work decorating open necklines, while layered hoops stack up the ear.
Timeless palettes of refined pearls and subtle sparkle are reimagined in unexpected new shades and the addition of dangling charms gives off a multidimensional flair. Matte finishes become high sheen and comfort is now couture. Work if you must, but don’t be afraid to make it interesting!
"Young At Heart"
Daily life is filled with responsibilities and rarely leaves room for fun. Somewhere along the way, we swapped our happy colorful clothing for muted tones and our childlike wonder for logic and practicality. Thankfully, this season opens us back up to a world filled with youthful curiosity and fascination!
Within the Young at Heart trend, notes of nostalgia play into joyful prints with an excess of bold, vibrant colors. Iconic patterns, shapes, and symbols synonymous with pop culture of the 90s and 00s are back for the party, and this time they’re brighter than ever. Slip dresses, tracksuits, baby tees, and boyfriend jeans spark sentimentality and make the perfect backdrop for a little extra mirth.
Bright colors and spontaneity show up in every possible way, including accessories. Dipped in a shiny coat of colorful paint, icons like hearts, butterflies, stars, smiley faces and more take accessorizing to the max. Even sparkly gems join the party, and when they’re brushed in shimmery multicolored hues, every facet sparks pure delight. The jewelry joy continues with baby hoop earrings featuring dangling charms, and oversized frames layered with iconic patterns and motifs.
With a trend this contagiously cheerful the message is clear: I may be an adult, but I’ll never grow up.
The name Bohemian Bombshell is a contradiction in itself, which makes it even more fitting for this expansive trend. Starting with peace, love, and the free-spirited vibes associated with the 1970s, things take an innovative turn when natural materials and homespun fabrics emerge in radically vibrant shades and unflinching combinations.
Layers are nonnegotiable within the Bohemian Bombshell trend, and that extends to the jewelry, too. From a “neck mess” created with a hodgepodge of layered necklaces to stacks of bracelets and rings in a range of shapes and sizes, this trend pushes the envelope when it comes to synergistic layers.
The Bohemian Bombshell vibe is infused in everything from wide-leg pants to garden party sundresses, where psychedelic swirls and mesmerizing patterns make an energizing splash. Small homespun details like patchwork and appliqués bring the boho aesthetic to life and enhance the underlying handcrafted charm of this trend, encouraging us to literally piece together a look that’s all our own.
An undeniable optimism resides within the Bohemian Bombshell trend, pulling inspiration from the ground beneath our feet to the night sky above us. Go with the flow, don’t overthink it, and embrace your inner Bohemian Bombshell!
"More Is More"
Life is too short to be boring, darling, and if you’re one who wears your confidence like a coat of many colors, this trend is for you. The More is More trend offers a multitude of ways to express your individualism. There is more of everything: more color, more sparkle, more volume, more sheen. And the more of all of it, the better!
For many of us, playing dress up was where our imaginations ran wild, and this season we have the perfect excuse to lay on the glitz in a kaleidoscope of color. Exaggerated silhouettes create expanded canvases, ready to be filled with over-the-top layers and voluminous frills. The addition of shimmering sequins and blinding gems will ensure all eyes are on you — as they should be.
But why stop there?
In the More is More trend, feathers and fringe collide with colorful rhinestones. Stacks of bold cuffs and sparkly bangles fill each forearm — and don’t be surprised if all that arm candy is set against a backdrop of silky elbow-length gloves. Watch for chokers to re-emerge as a key accessory this season. And don’t be afraid to add dimension with chunky beads in dynamic colors and literal 3D appliqués.
This trend makes being extra look downright basic. It’s all about maxed-out, supercharged fashion and you’re the star of the show!
No matter which of the Spring 2023 super trends you resonate with most, you’ll find a common theme running through each one: Bigger. Brighter. Bolder. This spring, feel free to embrace anything that makes you happy, and don’t be afraid to let your individuality shine from the outside in.
