We’ve lost count of the number of times his return has been announced since the pandemic began, but it’s clear the suit will be a wardrobe staple in 2023. Many designers have brought suits back into the limelight in the last year’s round runway shows, albeit in more casual variations.
Fit in the limelight again
A far cry from the fitted suits we’re used to, oversized cuts like those seen at Acne Studios, Stella McCartney or Dries Van Noten will be on the rise next year. But the most compelling trend remains the loose-fitting blazer worn with mismatched trousers, or better yet, a pair of simple tights.
While some perform in suits, others turn to functional utility wear that encompasses elegance and comfort and is often characterized by an abundance of pockets.
This trend between gorpcore and normcore is unmistakable and shows that we are not yet giving up the casual styles of the pandemic.
Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton are among the great houses that have explored this inspiration for the Spring-Summer 2023 season, in a sophisticated style for the former and a more excessive style for the latter.
Already very present in 2022, denim is not going anywhere and will be on the fashion agenda for next year as well. However, while last year denim channeled the famous Y2K aesthetic – notably heralding the return of the low waist – this time it’s going to be all about the ’90s, with cool, loose and casual looks from head to toe. the back.
Denim is influenced by the utility trend

whoops We know it’s not a comeback that many are waiting for, but leggings will be one of the must-have pieces of 2023. The good news, however, is that they will end up in bolder versions.
Say goodbye to the leggings that used to serve as an alternative to jogging pants, because in 2023 leggings will become a sophisticated fashion item, embellished with transparencies, sequins and eccentric prints.

They are even seen taking on a flared cut which could prove very popular. This trend has graced the runways of Gucci and Knwls and has been embraced by many celebrities such as Kendall Jenner.
After the sneakers and chunky combat-style boots of 2022—which aren’t going away entirely—it’s time for a more minimalist and sophisticated shoe to take the spotlight. Analogous to the ballet core trend that emerged last fall – and which already has 220 million followers (views) on TikTok – ballerina flats will be on the feet from the beginning of the year.
Popularized by fashion house Miu Miu, ballet flats are worn with or without socks and are already proving popular with a crowd of savvy influencers. Note that Mary Janes will be popular, as will heels, which are expected to be higher.
pastels and neutrals
As normcore is in high demand, colors in 2023 will be more subtle – with few exceptions – making for a more minimalistic wardrobe. Beige will be everywhere, as will grey, white and black, which will be the staples of our wardrobe.

The idea is to go back to basics, take a less fleeting and more sustainable approach to fashion. Sacai, Fendi, Tod’s and Coperni are among the houses that have made beige one of their favorite colors for the coming year. Note, however, that cobalt blue also brings a pop of color to the closets.
In response to this wave of neutral, almost dull colors, designers have foregrounded prints of all kinds with ultra-bright, playful and sometimes whimsical throwback patterns and eccentric motifs, as at Moschino.
Expect exotic fruits, flowers, leopard, zebra and snake prints, not to mention geometric or abstract patterns, XXL logos, cartoons and futuristic prints that span the real and the virtual.

This festive atmosphere, sometimes laced with a disco theme, can only be welcome after the general doom and gloom of 2022. Glitter was legion on the catwalks of Valentino, 16Arlington and Tom Ford.
The four fashion capitals of the world – New York, London, Milan and Paris – turned up the heat in the new year, making sheer, sheer items a must-have trend of 2023. After the focus on necklines and lacing, it is less suggestive but equally sensual style that the top fashion designers offer.
Dresses, jumpsuits, trousers and even tops are tinted with sheer fabrics – which stand out to varying degrees – as seen at Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Monse, Miu Miu and Chanel. Note that this see-through trend will also be seen in menswear with bold, daring pieces.
