No need to run to your wardrobe and hide under your favorite dress if the NFW spring 2023 fashion roundups displaying bizarre trends like belly windows and bubble hems make you feel that way. We combed through all the season’s hottest trends to identify styling tips and outfit upgrades that can give your wardrobe new life. Picking what works for you and appeals to your unique style is the secret to making runway trends work in real life. Instead of letting trends wear you, you want to wear them.
1. Neon Brights and Saturated Pastels Trends
Bold fuchsia, tangerine orange, brilliant yellow, lime green, lilac, tangerine, and minty blue makeup the appearance. The runways were covered in hues that appeared to have been drawn from a container of highlighter markers. Seen at Theory, Ulla Johnson, Prabul Gurung, Jonathan Simkhai, Fendi, and Tory Burch
How To Wear it:
It’s better to leave combining three of these wacky hues into one ensemble to the fashion experts. Going monochromatic or adding a splash of color to an otherwise neutral outfit, as they did at Fendi, is a simpler strategy. When worn with a pristine white button-down shirt or tank, one boldly colored statement piece, such as a bright skirt, blouse, or jacket, instantly transforms an outfit.
Consider these other attractive color combinations. If you want to branch out from white: orange and beige, minty blue and navy, lilac and grey. You can also wear the lighter shade on the area of your body you want to emphasize.
2. Evening fringe Trends
Midi cocktail dresses and floor-length gowns have elegantly updated fringe. This once-casual, hippie-era ornamentation was given a glam upgrade with crystal and beaded variations. Seen at: Ulla Johnson, Jonathan Simkhai, Khaite, Proenza Schouler, Michael Kors
How to style the fashion:
Consider purchasing a black fringed or feathered midi skirt, blazer, or camisole. If wearing a skin-tight black fringe dress is a touch out of your comfort zone. A boot or clutch with fringe detail nods to the style without trying too hard if that’s still too much for you.
3. High shine
Disco-ready dresses, glittery blazers with menswear influences, low-slung sequin slacks. And sky-high metallic platforms and sequined bodysuits made a comeback on the catwalk. Michael Kors, Prabal Gurung, and Tom Ford have all been seen.
How to style:
Wear a wide-leg pair of matte, complementing pants with a gold or silver sequined shirt in gray or beige. Another wonderful choice for a party outfit that looks beautiful and elegant without being too revealing is an oversize ’80s-style sequin jacket worn over a silky camisole or slinky dress with opaque tights.
