Spring Trends 2023
Are you dreaming of putting away your winter knitwear in favour of something more Spring like? It’s still pretty cold here in Geneva at the moment so it’s not yet time to put all your knitwear into storage, but it’s the perfect time to start thinking of the upcoming season and getting prepared.
You’ll see so many interesting trends for this Spring & Summer season, although it can be quite overwhelming due to the sheer variety seen on the runway and now in the shops.
There are a number of trends that continue from recent seasons such as metallics, elevated basics, dramatic silhouettes, to name but a few. While on the other hand we are seeing the return of some past trends such as Y2K aesthetics like the low-rise hipster style denim, as well as 60’s style Babydoll dresses. There’s something for everyone, so don’t feel that you have to confirm to a particular trend if it’s not for you: you’ll surely find at least one trend that you like and can apply to your existing wardrobe and lifestyle.
Charlotte’s Favourite Trends for SS23
As a Personal Stylist in Geneva, I find my clients prefer more long term wardrobe investments focusing on quality over quantity. The top trends I have selected are focused towards longevity and will integrate really well in your already carefully curated wardrobe.
1. Dramatic hip details: think A-line tulle dresses and skirts.
Best for the following body shapes: inverted triangle, strawberry, rectangle/slender/athletic, hourglass.
This versatile garment can be worn with a graphic t-shirt, leather jacket and trainers for a modern twist on the romantic tulle fabric, or it can be worn with a blouse and flats for a more classic style or with heels and a statement bag for an evening event.
2. Feminine boudoir styles: you don’t need replicate the runway trend of transparent boudoir style delicate materials - which may not be appropriate for your lifestyle.
Instead, consider a delicate silk camisole with lace detailing showing underneath a cardigan or blazer for a subtler take on sexy-chic style.
3. Grunge revisited: as Kate Moss returned to the Bottega Veneta’s Spring 2023 fashion show runway in a pair of distressed-look jeans, white tank top and flannel shirt, you can officially consider revisiting your casual-wear too.
Cargo-style trousers and jackets are also making their return to the shops. Distressed denim is here to stay but if you’re not a fan yet you want to stay current, consider denim with a slightly distressed hemline to add a touch of this trend without impacting your overall style especially if you’re rather a classic chic personality.
4. Elevated basics: this trend is here to stay and you’ll be glad to know as these are your investment pieces which really do form the basis of your wardrobe.
5. Spring Colour Trends: bright saturated colours are here to stay, but this time you’ll also find them combined with delicate soft neutrals. This Spring, pastels are back in force which is great for those of you who have a Light dominant colouring type as you wear pastels particularly well. Bright saturated shades are perfect for those of you with a Deep or Clear colourings. The softer neutrals will work beautifully for you if you’ve a Soft colouring and Warms and Cools will also be able to have lots of fun.
