The Spring ’23 fashion shows have come to an end! Cinched silhouettes, wild textures and the low-rise comeback are all MASSIVE shake-ups to the comfort era landscape started in 2019.
Hotpants, extreme cutouts and sheer mesh pieces are amongst the harder-to-wear micro trends throughout the shows – Which is why we thought it important to focus our attention on finding the most easy to follow, directional trends to inspire our readership.
We’ve scoured through the runway’s most influential looks to bring you 7 wearable trends you can insert into your wardrobe today.

Redefined Bottoms! Low Rise Everything, Slouchy Pant Silhouettes and More
Low rise slouchy trousers and jeans give a fresh take on the modern trouser.
Stella McCartney introduced a directionally chic low rise slim leg trouser, lengthening the leg.
Slouchy denim skirts and pencil maxi skirts abandon the high-waisted silhouette we’ve become accustomed to.
Flared fishtail pants move the eye away from the waist towards the leg.
Everything is Rosy, Quintessential Spring Colors
Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2023 is a soft, earthy rose clay shade of pink called “Terra Rosa”. A familiar makeup tone turned emblem for “putting health and wellbeing first” (as described by Sara McLean, color expert and stylist for Dunn-Edwards), is a “blend of brown and burgundy, which serves as a grounding neutral and delicate accent”.
Green-Based Grays, Chocolate Brown, Camel, Cantaloupe, Dark Moss, Chartreuse and Pear Yellow are amongst the reoccurring color palette for spring 2023. Akin to the rosy toned Terra Rosa, these colors serve as unique earthy neutrals which give a refreshing take on Spring’s botanical identity.
Moving Away From the Coin Necklace, An Accessory Upheaval
Bows, Pearls and Color and Gems are finding their way into jewelry and accents, adding a creative bend to accessories!
Romantic Textural Clothing Defines the “Party Piece”
Texture becomes a fantasy-element with feather accents, weaving, scalloped details, crinkle-fabric, tweed, lace, pleating, sheerness and shine. Inserting textural reverie into your outfit is perfect inspiration for holiday party wear, and will undoubtedly find it’s way into elegant spring events.
Proportions and Details: Ruching, Gathering, Cinching and Bell-Shapes
If the low rise trend scares you (pear shapes beware!!!), take the emphasis back to your waist with the waist-gathering details of trending ruching, gathering, cinching and bell-shapes.
We love Givenchy’s focus on ruched pieces, which minimize the stomach and flatter throughout.
Loewe’s bell-shaped emphasis on skirts, cashmere mini dresses and outerwear create flattering shape.
Gathered dresses and cinched pieces like coats and trenches are a common theme throughout the Spring ’23 runway.
Show A Little Leg with Asymmetrics
Asymmetric Skirts add interest and artistic imbalance to otherwise basic outfits! We love this subtle statement silhouette for a flattering way to show a little leg.
Platforms Reign Supreme
Platform sandals, sneakers and boots are the reoccurring shoe of choice throughout the runway as an ode to taking comfort into elevated territories.
