A softer, pastel version of pink replaces 2022’s fixation with all things fuchsia, while black and cobalt blue are predicted to be the season’s unexpected standout colors.
For those seeking a little sensuality, low-rise waistlines and sheer materials will be abundant, while the “groundbreaking” florals of spring are given a punchy, three-dimensional boost.

You’ll be happy to know that there were some popular trends that complement a winter wardrobe as well—more especially, your party season wardrobe—for those of you who can’t wait three months to indulge.
You’d be wise to invest in those spring trends a few months in advance to really get your money’s worth, from riqsué boudoir-inspired eveningwear to high-octane sequins and some pretty major party bags (of the glitzy kind, not the plastic 90s kind filled with Haribo, blow bubbles, and a napkin-wrapped slice of cake).

Here are the top 5 fashion trends that will fill your wardrobes by spring.

Since several seasons ago, sheer textiles have been having a major moment, but never more so as for spring/summer 2023.
If you want to eschew the more conventional pathways of tiny hemlines and plunging necklines, there are plenty of sensual ways to layer and lend a feeling of sultry intrigue to a look, from dress overlays adding drama above a basic evening slip to more risqué lingerie-baring pieces.

Low-Rise Waists

It’s official: the popular low-slung waist from the 1990s is back in style.
Our favorite high-rise appears to be taking a long break for summer 2023 after everything from trousers to suits, shorts to evening skirts received the low-rise treatment.
For the full impact of your new style, wear a crop top.

Sequin season may typically occur around December to coincide with the apparently never-ending stream of holiday parties, but in 2023, it will be declared that spring and summer are the best times for a little glitz and glamour.
Importantly, the trend for SS23 features a softer, lighter color palette, with pastels, pale pinks, and neutrals expected to be the most common.

Undoubtedly, fuchsia was the color of 2022 (thanks, of course, to Mr. Pierpaolo Piccioli, who started the trend in March during Valentino’s AW22 showcase), but for SS23, the shade takes a backseat to a striking blue hue.
Cobalt blue hasn’t been at the forefront of fashion trends in a while, so its comeback is heartening.
You’d be wise to get on board with this trend before we eventually overindulge and go back to our neutral wardrobes once more. This style is splashed across everything from dresses to jackets, skirts, and even boots.

Boudoir Detailing

SS23 appears to be one really seductive season with boudoir detailing at the forefront of eveningwear—perhaps not one to trial in the office.
Whether you want to dangle a beautiful slip with some lace accents or plunge right in with a full-on ensemble that includes hold-up stockings and lace gloves.
