My favorite 2023 spring fashion trends

Sheer layers, jumpsuits, metallics and crop tops are still in style. While mini skirts and wide leg pants are still around, midis and maxi skirts were everywhere and skinny pants are back too.
For color trends for Spring Summer 2023 think pretty blues from baby blue to bright neon blue, neon greens, monochromatic beige looks and burnt shades of orange and red.

1. Cargo Everything for Spring 2023
Cargo pants are nothing new but the styles and colors trending for this Spring 2023 must have are. Cargo pants were everywhere for Fall and it looks like they’re here to stay for Spring 2023 fashion if the runway shows like Coperni, Fendi and Diesel are any indication of what the street style stars will pick up on.
It’s not just cargo pants that are in style. Think cargo skirts and jackets as well in colors besides neutrals and not just cotton, silky materials are in and even more comfortable. Plus they have pockets and the more the better.
You know I have a thing for pockets and am definitely embracing this trend as one of my Spring 2023 must haves.
Cargo Shorts & Matching Bandeau
These white leather cargo shorts check both the cargo and leather 2023 spring fashion trends plus they’re on sale.
Black Cargo Pants Outfit
One of the more affordable matching cargo pants outfits with on trend buckles and cut outs. This style is so easy to dress up or down for day or night.
2. Capes Are Back For Spring 2023 Fashion
I’ve always had different length and material capes in my closet I bring out every time there’s a resurgence. They’re one of those easy layering pieces that work over Spring outfits, tailored pants and heels when it’s cooler out or the AC’s too high inside. Plus they look far chicer than a cardigan and less office ready than a blazer.
3. Sleek Streamline Dresses
The slinkier and more streamlined the dress the better for Spring 2023. The Spring 2023 runway shows are making me crave the warmer weather again already. I’m not a cold weather girl.
Think less bandage dresses and more sophisticated styles like bouclé, soft jersey cut out styles and long slinky column and tube dresses as seen at Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2023.
For extra style points look for hooded or satin styles. One trend forecast by Who What Wear is the return of bubble hems so keep your eyes peeled as these were seen at Valentino, Ulla Johnson, Khaite and JW Anderson.
Now I’m having remorse at having got rid of mine! As besides being on trend, they’re perfect for windy Spring days.
Khaite showed stunning satin bubble dresses in its collection, which I’m already predicting will be a key buy for spring. The Row’s collection…included perfectly tailored tube dresses that were a standout of the season.Who What Wear
4. Spring 2023 Must Haves | Denim on Denim
Denim is always in style but for Spring 2023 it’s all about head to toe denim. This Spring it’s all denim everything and a looser fit to the Canadian Tux. To recreate these wearable and comfortable runway looks think:
- Denim jackets with loose denim jeans and denim boots.
- Denim bralettes with matching denim midi skirts.
- Denim corsets (yes corsets are still in for Spring 2023).
- Denim pants and a denim jackets.
- Denim maxi dresses.
- Denim mini dresses (on my 2023 must have shopping list).
All finished with denim bags and even boots. As seen at Marine Serre, YProject, Bluemarine and Miu Miu.
5. Spring 2023 Fashion Trends | Florals
Spring always seems like a romantic season to me which is why I love seeing romantic styles on the Spring Summer runways. The floral print and embellished 3D flower tops and dresses for Spring fashion 2023 are so easy to wear IRL and the cuts are so flattering.
The materials ranged from loose and flowing at Ralph Lauren to structured styles at Alexander McQueen. Floral dresses are another Spring trend for 2023 that may not be anything new but is an easy runway trend to wear and another 2023 must have.
Floral Mini Dress
Pretty in pink. This pink floral mini dress is perfect for Spring and Summer weddings or floating around the Riviera or just for brunch with the girls.
ROCOCO SAND | FWRD
Floral Midi Dress
This stunning white midi dress is proof of just how easy it is to make the embellished 3D flower dress trend for Spring fashion 2023 work in real life.
6. Metallics & Sparkle | Glam 2023 Must Have
Not just for the holidays! Silver, gold, lilacs, pinks, bronze, rhinestones and lots of sequins walked down the SS2023 runways. Don’t think just sparkly cocktail dresses, skirts and gowns.
We’re also talking metallic leather pants and dresses, structured tops and long line jackets for this Spring trend. As long as it’s high shine, it’s in from day wear to evening wear, shoes and bags.
As seen at Zimmermann, Bevza, Valentino, Isabel Marant, Ferrari, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Chloé.
7. Buckle details
The buckle trend is still going as a Spring fashion trend for 2023. Think flat knee high boots with buckle accents as seen at Celine or oversized buckle belts and accents on pockets as seen at Louis Vuitton who also made a case for oversized zippers. It’s an edgier trend that works well with the cargo and leather Spring trends.
As seen at Givenchy, Celine, Cult Gaia, Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton.
8. The Crop Top & Bralette Trend Continues For Spring 2023
Crop tops are still front and centre. What I thought would be a passing trend is here to stay for 2023. So if you don’t already have this 2023 must have, now’s a great time to still jump on this trend.
Miu Miu’s seemed smaller than ever and were styled on their own and also under sheer tops with knee grazing leather skirts and leather thong sandals. Which makes for an easy way to make this Spring 2023 trend work in real life. Especially after the Holidays when the last thing I want to do is have my stomach out.
Crop Top Styling Tip
Layer a shirt over your bralette and under your blazer for the office and then take your shirt off and leave your blazer open and bralette on display to take you from the office to after work drinks.
As seen on the Miu Miu, Chanel, Zimmermann and Givenchy SS2023 runway shows.
Knit Crop Top
Expect to see a lot of crotchet for Spring Summer 2023. This crop top’s also in one of the hottest colors for Spring 2023. Style them with a bubble hem skirt or cargo pants depending on your mood.
9. Leather Spring Trend 2023
For Spring fashion 2023 bring out your leather or vegan leather. I love leather and it’s such a practical material for damp or cooler Spring days. Whether you embrace this fashion trend with:
- A leather moto jacket as seen at Versace
- A leather dress as seen at Chloé, Bottega Veneta and Ferrari.
- Head to toe leather: black moto jacket, mini skirt, knee high boots and bag as seen at Versace.
10. Jumpsuits Spring Trend 2023
Jumpsuits are sticking around for Spring Summer 2023 from ultra fitted black and sheer styles to structured bodice jumpsuits as seen at Stella McCartney is the prettiest shade of pink and Alexander McQueen. I’ve always loved catsuits AKA jumpsuits or playsuits as they save the issue of coordinating tops and bottoms. Plus they’re super comfy, even if a little impractical when it comes to the bathroom.
The catsuits on trend for Spring 2023 are all about highlighting your favorite body parts whether that’s a simple black catsuit, summerly floral print or sparkly one that’s made for Vegas and partying like Valentino’s sequin iteration.
11. Spring 2023 Must Haves | Soft, Feminine Details & Styling
Spring dresses for 2023 are some of the prettiest for a while. Besides the floaty florals and white dresses and 3D flower rosette details there were lots of sheer layers, bows, lace and pretty pastels.
Chanel, Erdem, Prada, Loewe and Bottega Veneta had some of the prettiest iterations of this trend in their SS2023 runway shows.
12. Dress to the Max | Maxis & Midis
On the opposite end of the scale from mini skirts and shorts are midi and maxi skirts, trains and maxi dresses. The maxis for womens Spring fashion 2023 range from voluminous to sleeker more fitted silhouettes.
So grab a column skirt, tube dress or maxi dress for a minimalistic look on cooler Spring days. As seen at Zimmermann, Valentino, Erdem, Prada and Bottega Veneta to name a few.
13. Sexy 2023 Spring/Summer Fashion Trends | Sheer Layers
Sheer dresses and tops sound a bit daunting but are actually way more wearable than you’d think. A lot of the sheer tops like this one come with the bandeau top which solves the issue of what to wear underneath.
Sheer long sleeve bodysuits also look fabulous over sleeveless bodysuits and logo bralettes. Layer sheer dresses over bras and booty shorts and just go for it or opt for one of these fabulous dresses!

Spring Trends 2023 | Fashion Color Trends
The Spring color palette on the runway shows were extensive and Barbiecore magenta pink because is still in. Along with metallics, pastel blue to bright blues, lime green and neon colors, beige on beige and black. Spring 2023 fashion color trend predictions include:
Baby Blue – Neon Blue
One of the most popular colors for Spring 2023 is baby blue & vibrant blues which replace Periwinkle from last year. In the form of clothing, shoes and accessories. I love this soft shade and it’s easy to wear with white which is another color that’s always in style. As seen at Burberry, Prada, Emporio Armani and Tory Burch SS2023.
Neon, especially green and yellow made a splash and kept the runways bright for Spring 2023. Think midi and maxi dresses, satin midi skirts and neon bags. As seen at Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta and Fendi.
Burnt orange, red and ombré
This is such a pretty trend to wear, especially at sunset on vacation to compliment the scenery. The dip dying, ombré effect in reds, yellows, oranges, purples, and blues were seen on dresses from Courrèges, Etro and Ferragamo and is one color trend I haven’t tried before but am going to wear in Croatia with me this Summer.
Beige didn’t disappear for long as it’s back for Spring styles 2023. Especially monochromatic beige as seen at Ralph Lauren, Bottega Veneta, Max Mara and Dior. If you’re worried about beige washing you out, it’s not a great color on me either, keep beige to your bottom half or accessories.
