If one thing is certain, it’s that fashion is evolving to a new level in 2023 — we’re wearing bold colors, matching prints, and playing around with aesthetics that haven’t seen the light of day in decades. But this year, there are three top fashion trends that are taking blogs, runways, and social media by storm. Although learning how to incorporate these trends and feeling confident with your style choices can be daunting, we’re here to help.
Because these three trends have hit the ground running, it’s best to start wearing them as soon as possible!
Faux Leather Leggings
What’s wonderful about this fashion trend is that it is the perfect fusion of comfort and style. Leather pants can often feel restrictive but faux leather leggings are a whole different ball game. They can be dressed down with sneakers and an oversized graphic t-shirt or chunky knit sweater for casual events but also effortlessly elevated. For a fancier look, wear your faux leather leggings with a chic mock neck long-sleeve top, colorful blouse, oversized button-up top slightly tucked behind the zipper, or even a body-hugging corset for nights out with your gal pals. Since faux leather leggings are tight at the ankle, they can be worn with any type of shoe: sneakers, heels, strappy sandals, knee-high boots, and ankle boots. But before stepping out of the house in your new faux leather leggings, make sure you aren’t wearing them with a leather jacket, as this is a little too biker chick. Instead, stay warm with a sherpa jacket, shacket, denim jacket, or long wool coat.
We love maxi skirts for several reasons: they keep your legs warm, can be worn during all four seasons, and are fashion-forward without compromising comfort. Like faux leather leggings, maxi skirts can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. While maxi skirts made from fabrics like linen and cotton are popular, denim maxi skirts are having a real moment in the spotlight. When thinking about styling the neutral-colored maxi skirt hanging in your closet, think about pairing it with white sneakers, a brightly colored fitted sweater, and a crossbody bag. For dinner parties or dates in warmer weather, wear your maxi skirt with a blouse that shows off your collar bones and a pair of heeled sandals. Both of these looks are particularly fashionable with a denim maxi skirt.
From cargo pants to oversized cargo jackets and cargo-style denim, the trend is taking over in 2023. What makes this trend particularly fun is that this year, cargo pants aren’t limited to khaki or olive green colors. Instead, we’re seeing pinks, lilacs, white, black, bright green, and more. But if you’re new to the trend, we recommend starting with neutral items like a pair of black cargo pants as it’s easier to match with pieces already in your closet. Plus, neutral cargo pants can be dressed up or down, with sneakers and an oversized hoodie for Starbucks runs. For fancier events, wear your pants with ankle boots or heels and a high-quality sweater.
