Fashion is an ever-evolving industry, and it can be hard to keep up with the latest trends. This spring, there are an estimated 13 new fashion trends to look out for. According to experts in the fashion industry, this season is about bold prints, bright colours and accessories that make a statement. The fashion industry is always one step ahead of us, staging its spring/summer 2023 runways in September and predicting our new season wardrobes six months ahead of us. From floral patterns and high-octane sequins to high-waisted jeans and boudoir-inspired eveningwear, you’ll truly get your money’s worth, you’d be smart to invest a few months in advance.

Whether you like to dress up or dress down, these 13 trends will help you find your perfect style.

Sheer Fabrics

This spring, fashion is getting ready to take a daring turn towards sheer fabrics. Sheer fabrics are like a ray of sunshine, radiating warmth and femininity.

The soft touch of chiffon and silk creates romantic silhouettes that move with every step we take. The beauty of these fabrics lies in the way they reflect the light, creating an enchanting iridescence that has never been seen before in fashion trends. Moreover, sheer fabrics can be layered in endless combinations to create unique looks for any occasion. They can easily be dressed up or down, depending on how you want to style them.

Sunset Ombré is using colours from the setting sun in your outfit colouring

Sunset Ombre

An unexpected trend was a soft sunset ombré, an incredibly romantic colour trend that dominated the spring/summer runways.

When styling the sunset ombre trend, it’s important to keep the look balanced. You can opt for a bright orange or pink top paired with some neutral bottoms such as white or beige trousers or jeans. Alternatively, you could try wearing an all-over sunset ombre outfit by blending different shades together in one piece of clothing. An item that has this sunset shading is one you won’t regret purchasing.

Low-rise Waists

It’s like rolling back the clock to the 90s and early 2000s when everyone wanted those signature low-riding jeans. This nostalgic style is sure to make a comeback with a modern twist.

Rather than having the waistline of your trousers or jeans hit at the hips, it will sit much lower on the body. This creates a completely different silhouette and look that can be both flattering and comfortable. To create a low-rise waist, look for clothing items with an elasticized band that sits below your natural waistline. The best thing about this trend is that it looks great on all body types and sizes. Whether you’re petite or plus-sized, you can rock this style with confidence.

Sequin Clothing

Like a shining beacon in the night, sequins are making a major splash on the fashion scene. Whether you opt for a full-on sequin dress or just some subtle touches here and there, these sparkly pieces will definitely have heads turning.

Spring and summer are the hottest times for some glitz and glamour, and while traditionally the sequin season falls in December during the festive parties, 2023 is ripping up the rulebook. SS23 will be dominated by pale pinks, nudes, and pastels, with a softer, lighter colour palette.

Summer Black

The shade of black has been an undeniable recurring theme of the latest runway shows, and it is certainly an unlikely shade to dominate a spring/summer landscape. There is, of course, a lighter touch to the colour than can be seen in many other garments in this range, and the use of skin-baring fabrics like crochet and lace allow for an unexpected softness in this look.

Black is in for spring


Cobalt Blue

The colour of 2022 was definitely fuchsia, but for SS23 it steps aside in favour of a bold blue hue. Fashion trends haven’t been dominated by cobalt blue for quite some time, and its return is more than welcome.

Cobalt blue is a bold and daring colour that can give any wardrobe an extra pop of colour. Whether you want to go all out or just add a small touch of blue, cobalt is the perfect choice for this season. From dresses to jackets, skirts and boots, this trend will be an excellent choice to jump on before we overindulge.

Boudoir Styling

The Boudoir style is a popular trend this spring and it’s all about femininity and sophistication. This trend is seductive, elegant and romantic, focusing on soft fabrics and delicate details. Think sheer blouses and flowing skirts with lace embroidery or intricate beading for a glamorous look. Delicate lingerie pieces such as bodysuits, slips, camisoles and wrap robes are also key pieces in this trend.

Colours like blush pink, ivory, dove grey and baby blue are the perfect shades to achieve the boudoir-style look. You can dress it up by pairing a lingerie-inspired top with statement jewellery or keep it casual with jeans and sneakers.

Party Bags

This spring, it’s all about party bags, a playful twist on the traditional handbag. They are often embellished with beads, sequins, or fabric flowers for an extra touch of whimsy. These heavily embellished evening bags loyally support the saying that ‘more is more’.

No matter what your style is, there’s sure to be a party bag that will fit right in with your wardrobe. If you’re looking for something unique and eye-catching, look for designs with intricate embroidery or fun slogans printed on them.

Heart Motifs

One of spring/summer 2023’s stand-out trends has a certain February 14th feel to it—even though the season kicks off at the end of March. The heart motif was spotted all over the runways in September, ready to be seen on every part of the body, from hips to legs, chests to hemlines. For those with an eye for detail, adorning dresses, in particular, is the perfect choice for a date night look that allows them to wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Floral Designs

Floral designs are expected to be a major trend in spring and summer fashion this year. Next season, you will see the classic spring floral trend taking on a much more three-dimensional role, bursting out of shirts, shoulders and even reaching all the way to your torso. In the context of a quiet dinner with friends, the latter might seem a bit out of place, but those who aren’t afraid of a stand-out fashion moment should be able to pull off this look.

Fringed Styling

An updated take on the 70s classic, this trend has been making waves in fashion circles and is sure to wow everyone this season. A bold and daring look, it’s the perfect way to add a touch of glamour and edge to any outfit. The fringe is a familiar design accent, but it is making a huge comeback next season as part of the modern design trend. Dresses and clutches with fringed cuffs or entire fringed sleeves are all popular this season.

Candy Floss pink summer dresses are in for 2023

Candyfloss Pink

This feminine colour has been spotted all over the runways and red carpets, from casual daywear to glamorous evening attire.

This season, you can embrace this trend in a multitude of ways. From soft blush tones to bright fuchsia hues, there are colours available to suit every style and skin tone. For a subtle look, try pairing candyfloss pink with neutral shades such as white or beige – perfect for those days when you want to make a statement without going overboard. If you’re feeling bolder, layer different shades of pink together or opt for an all-over monochromatic look.

Soft-shade Styling

Since the industry has shifted to softer, slouchier shapes throughout the warmer months, tailoring is becoming more popular. Soft pastel shades dominate the suiting landscape for SS23, making it even more fairweather-friendly. Next season, pastel blues, greens, and greys will replace the pinks we’ve become accustomed to. This trend is perfect for those who want to make an effortless statement without going over the top. It pairs well with other items such as neutral accessories or bolder pieces for a more daring look.
