5 NYFW Style Trends to Try in 2023
New York Fashion Week was a month ago, but that doesn’t mean that the feeling of excitement is over. Next spring, New York designers gave us lots of options to choose from, and, If you’re like me, then options are a good thing.
Spring/Summer 2023 is all about the small details that make a big difference. Brands like Priskavera and Alíette were inspired by nature, while Area and Naeem Khan emphasized the hips in thrilling and unsymmetrical ways.
Take a look below at NYFW’s top 5 trends that will be your year’s highlight.
1. Leaf Detail
Spring 2023 is about being connected to nature and being grounded in the idea of paying respect to the earth. Do this by adding a little green detailing to your closet in new and refreshing ways. Pay homage to your favorite plant by wearing floral and leafy prints- or become the plant by adding a little Dion Lee to your wardrobe.
2. Cosmic Abstract
The cosmic wind has blown in a burst of abstract color in various silhouettes and cuts. Brands like Prabal Gurung and Jonathan Simkha serve whips of bold prints that are bound to make you stand out in any room and in any space– outer maybe.
3. Hips & Body
With the state of society, it seems like everyone is interested in altering the shape of their body in one form or another. Designers decided to take the role of the surgeon and have given a safer approach by playing with the silhouette. Next year, the category can always be body if you want it to be.
This season is about the net, and I’m not talking about the rim. Houses like Area and Gabriel Hearst went for the more extremist level by paying attention to intricate detailing and theatrical drama. In contrast, Proenza Schouler and Jonathan Simkha went for a more wearable cut. Either way, thin cutouts are the main attraction.
5. Growl Power
I’ve always been a Cheetah Girl- or boy- at heart, and this season helped me live my childhood dream of wanting to be a part of Disney Channel’s “Cheetah Girls.” Sergio Hudson and Nili Notan went for a more subtle look by placing the ferocious print on more wearable pieces, while Christian Cowan stood center stage and took the lead this season as the head of the pack on this trend.
