The Spring and summer seasons will be bright and beautiful. See the fashion trends on spot here.
When it comes to trends, fashion editors, buyers, and style fanatics are the first to bring out the latest and greatest fashion trends that designers reveal in their Fashion Week collections.
The latest 2023 fashion trends are influenced by the shows presented in the four key fashion cities of New York, London, Milan, and Paris six months ago. And while trends tend to change drastically every said month, several of last season’s big trends continue through spring and summer, expanded, and updated for 2023 fashion trends, with silhouettes and colours that have been a smash hit that will still have a place in your closet for the foreseeable.
From a continuation of rosette accessories and Y2K influence and an influx of too-sheer-for-work lingerie dresses to delicate dyes, the Spring/Summer 23 collections play an important role in deciding our outfits with the changing seasons.
Big brands like Fendi, Michael Kors, Sergio Hudson, Tom Ford, Brandon Maxwell, and Tory Burch opted to incorporate the trends we’ve been seeing the most lately and that our favourite celebs are wearing as inspiration, such as prints with big sequins, resurgent low-rise and shades of pink and orange.
So, what’s in store for spring/summer 2023 fashion trends?
Fuchsia and magenta are old shades! There’s a new one to know. A softer, more pastel, cotton candy-like shade of pink will take over next season, welcoming a less intense and more accessible trend.

For some time now, the spring runways have shown off that the sheer trend is poised to become mainstream. Almost all designers experimented with very thin fabrics, such as the flowing dresses by Ferragamo or the long, sheer gowns over baggy pants by Collina Strada. For this spring and summer season, stay away from sheer black and go light, bright, and airy.

The Y2K revival is really hitting the ground running this season! Now, waists below the belly button are not to everyone’s taste. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, this detail will give a clear nod to an outfit by pairing a belly with a pair of eye-catching pants, as we saw on the runways of Jacquemus, Stella McCartney, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana, among others.

Super sequins are here to stay! Although sequins are typically associated with the holiday season, we can break the tradition and make this spring/summer 2023 the ideal time to add some sparkle and shine, wearing softer and lighter colour palettes pieces, such as pale pinks, nudes, and pastels.

The new take on florals for the upcoming season: the Flower Mood. This year’s floral trend is more dramatic than the typical springtime prints, with a three-dimensional effect that extends beyond just shirts and shoulders. These florals are so bold that they can even take over your entire torso!

RAYS OF SUNSHINE
The spring/summer runway was dominated by a romantic colour trend that featured a soft sunset ombré effect, which unexpectedly became a hit. This trend showcased reds blending into oranges, yellows, and whites, providing a warm and optimistic contrast to the chilly winds outside during the September shows.
