Get Ahead of the Trends!
Stylists and designers are sharing their hottest tips to start the year off in style. We’ve rounded up all of the trends that are taking over the internet right now and put them in one article to save you time.
Now you can start planning how to bring these trends into your home and life.
Lug-Sole Loafers Are Back
Lug-sole loafers were a staple accessory in the 90s when just about every shoe style could be bought in a lug-sole option. If you’re lucky, you held on to some vintage pairs because they are coming back with a vengeance.
Chunky lug-sole shoes are headed down runways and sidewalks this year, and they’re not going away any time soon.
Green Tones Are The Number One Color Trend
The outdoors are in this year because green is the color to incorporate into your home and wardrobe. You can expect to see fern and moss-green colors everywhere this year.
If you don’t feel comfortable embracing green tones to your wardrobe, bringing earthy green tones into the home can make a calming and comfortable space.
Hot Pink Barbie-Core Is Gaining Momentum
Hot pink barbie-core is still having a moment in the spotlight, and some celebs are totally embracing it. Everything from pink food to pink accessories to pink hair is taking over the internet.
The boldest fashionistas will rock head-to-toe hot pink for a totally monochrome outfit that stands out even in the biggest crowd.
The Ballet Flat Steps Back Into Style
Remember the early 2010s when ballet flats were all the rage? Well, the flat is coming back! This trend has come in and out of style for the last two decades, but flats are having a resurgence in popularity right now.
People are transitioning from work-from-home or hybrid work models, and that means comfy but stylish shoes are key. Lots of people are opting for the ballet flat as the perfect business casual shoe.
Clear Purses And Accessories
Transparent accessories are sticking around! If you thought that we left this trend in the Y2K era, think again. See-through shoes, bags, jewelry, and glasses are making their return as Gen-Z teens discover the wonders of poly–plastic accessorizing.
If you don’t want people to see the contents of your purse or the color of your socks, this trend might not be for you.
Sparkling Never Goes Out Of Style
Sparkles and sequins can bring life to any outfit, and they’re definitely not tacky if you style them correctly.
Partly thanks to Taylor Swift ushering in her Bejeweled era and partly thanks to a resurgence of Y2K nostalgia, the sequin and sparkle accessory or clothing item will be seen everywhere this year!
White Sneakers Are Where Comfort Meets Fashion
White sneakers are basically never going out of style, and we should all just accept that. Clean white kicks are something that draws the eye down to allow people to take in your whole outfit.
These cult-favorite shoes could complete the perfect casual outfit, or they could help dress down a professional outfit.
Over-Sized Cargo Pockets Are Here To Stay
Cargo clothing of all kinds is making a comeback. We’re talking pants, shorts, jackets, and even joggers embracing the cargo pocket trend.
Women everywhere will finally have somewhere to keep their phones and belongings because women’s clothing is notorious for not including useable pockets. Thanks to the cargo trend that won’t always be a problem!
A Shaved Head Is Super Cool
Believe it or not, being bald is bold and trendy today, and people are rocking it. People are shaving their heads for various reasons, but the “bald” look is a trend that we see more and more in the world of entertainment and life in general.
Doja Cat famously shaved her head and eyebrows!
Metallic Materials Are Taking Over
This year you can expect to see a lot more metallics showing up in people’s wardrobes. The metallic trend has been around for a minute, but it’s usually featured on bags, shoes, and accessories.
But now the metallic look is expanding to pants, blazers, shorts, and of course, endless dresses!
The Faux-Leather Legging Look Continues To Shine
The faux-leather look has gone completely viral and has been given space on Pinterest boards everywhere. The beloved black legging is given a classier upgrade when it’s made of faux leather or pleather.
Plus, you can dress these up or down to fit your needs. These pants can be worn in the office, on a night out, with sneakers, or with high heels. The outfit is yours to build!
Real Leather And Fur Is Out, Faux Is In!
Genuine leather and furs are being traded in for faux and vegan options that are sustainable and environmentally friendly. The push for sustainable fashion comes during a massive wave of fast fashion retailers that are currently monopolizing the industry.
People are slowly starting to make the switch to non-leather and faux-fur clothing and accessory alternatives.
The Blazer Jacket Is As Powerful As Ever
The staple blazer is probably going to be around forever, so you might as well embrace it. That being said, the blazers you’re going to see in 2023 are not your grandpa’s jackets. Modern blazers are the ultimate layering piece and can elevate any outfit from casual to cool.
What used to be reserved for boardroom meetings is now a versatile clothing piece you need in your wardrobe.
Vintage Clothing Is A Total Craze Right Now
All things vintage are having a moment as people crawl the aisles of second-hand stores and antique shops looking for the perfect jacket or retro decor to add a unique style to their life.
Vintage pieces are especially cool because there is less of a chance that anyone will have the same thing. Plus, it’s a nice nod to the upcycling trend this year.
Menswear For Everyone
Menswear isn’t just for men anymore! Women’s fashion is taking cues (and clothes) from the average man’s closet and transforming those pieces to work in an outfit.
Things like loose-fit denim, sweater vests, slacks, and suits were traditionally exclusively men’s clothing. But this year, customers can expect to continue to see menswear cross into the world of women’s fashion.
Flare-Legged Yoga Pants Are Back From 2009
Flare-legged yoga pants are back and appear to be here to stay. Some millennials might still own their original pair of 2009 Lululemon Groove Pants, and they’d be considered fashionable today.
Gez-Z has discovered the bell-bottom pant, and they are obsessed, which means it will be everywhere this year, whether we like it or not.
The Boyfriend Fit Is Comfy And Trendy
The “boyfriend fit” is taking over in women’s clothing. The loosely fitted baggy clothing is comfortable and laid back, which is why people are opting to mix comfort and style.
Most baggy-fit clothes can be given a feminine twist by styling them with something fitted or some sparkly accessories. And don’t forget the white sneakers!
Roomy Knee-High Boots Are Everywhere This Year
A roomy-knee high boot will be all the rage this year, and they are suitable for much more than just the winter season.
The comfortable and spacious boots are a refreshing take on the baggy floor-length pant trend, clashing against the skinny legging look that’s been everywhere since the 2010s.
Cowboy Boots With A Modern Spin
The new trend of mixing traditional leather with a contemporary style is becoming a fast favorite. Think bedazzled cowboy boots or warped heel boots that look like an art piece but can be worn down the street.
The funky modern twist on traditional leather might not be for everyone, but it’s definitely a style to watch for.
Rocking Daring Makeup Looks
Playing with vibrant makeup colors is still something people are having fun with this year, including mascara, lipstick, eyeliner, and different blushes.
And if you are filling in your brows, that’s also a fun place to bring bright color into your makeup routine (although it is a bit more daring!).
Minimalist Sandals For A Laid Back Outfit
When the warm weather finally rolls around, you can expect people to wear sleek, minimalist sandals.
These sandals work to dress down an outfit or pull together a lounge look. The shoe style usually features straps or buckles of different sizes, and the monochromatic color scheme has been gaining popularity.
Buckles On Shoes, Boots, Bags, and Belts
Speaking of shoes with buckles, it’s time to embrace the buckle! The small buckle detail is becoming more exaggerated on shoes, belts, coats, and clutches to add a statement style to any piece.
Especially when talking about shoes, buckles add a bit of a goth-chic edge to an outfit thanks to the contrasting silver and black.
The Kitten Heel Clicking Back Into Style
The kitten heel has been reimagined by major brands and is starting to appear everywhere.
Millennials might be getting sick of this trend by now, but like most things they thought they had done away with, kitten heels are coming back. Now, the style is updated with a bit of a geometric flare or bold color choice.
Platform Heels Are Keeping Up With The Times
The thick, chunky platform heel is everywhere, and petite stars like Ariana Grande and Jenna Ortega can’t get enough of them.
Chunky platform heels are a major trend to watch for this year. If you can manage to walk in them comfortably, they add a wow factor to any outfit thanks to their cool block shape.
Wearing Monochromatic Earth And Weather Tones
According to fashion bloggers, earthy tones are in, and bright, clashing colors are out. The last couple of years has seen a shift to muted weather or earthy tones that are more monochromatic and blend together.
That’s why everything from fashion choices to home decor leans more into a natural, earthy color scheme.
Ditching Your Round Toe Shoes
Another trend you can say goodbye to this year is a round-toe shoe, according to some fashion bloggers.
Round-toed shoes were super popular in the early 2010s, but this year, it’s bolder to wear a sharp or squared toe. Shoes with a unique toe shape will help elevate dress pants, denim, or even a skirt!
Bringing In Earthy Pops Of Color To The Home
According to Vogue, those earthy tones that are taking over people’s wardrobes should also be brought into the home this year— especially pink and brown hues.
Mauve, peach, and coral pinks are a feminine but softer way to incorporate color into your home. Try buying throw pillows, area rugs, or artwork that bring in the color you’re after.
Embracing Paper Lighting And Lamps
There has been a resurgence in soft, paper, or fabric lighting in the home. No more blaring overhead lights; people are now opting for softer, diffused lighting that casts more of a comfortable glow versus a harsh light.
Plus, the trendy monochromatic style is perfect for a fabric or paper lamp.
Changing All Your Products To Vegan And Cruelty-Free
Another welcome trend to follow in the world of beauty is switching everything in your routine to vegan and cruelty-free products.
Hopefully, this is a trend that never goes out of style and will start to gain popularity over the years to come! Brands are recognizing the importance of treating the planet with kindness and giving consumers sustainable options.
