Summer Styles People Are Already Loving | 2023 Trend Report
Summer fashion trends 2023 are very similar to the Spring fashion trends so no need to do a complete wardrobe overhaul and your platforms can stay in rotation. Summer trends still have a 90s and Y2K influence along with lots of feminine details, platforms, sheer layers, metallics and denim dresses. Think summer styles with lots of color including brights like Viva Magenta and pastels. Along with glam and retro styles inspired by the Spring Summer 2023 runway shows by Chanel, Versace, Balmain, Fendi, etc.
The ultra femme and cut out matching sets that were big last year e.g. bralettes and shorts and blazer sets are still a big Summer 2023 fashion trend. Except we’re leaning more towards skinny pant suits or a mini skirt coord set. These Summer styles for 2023 are gorgeous, playful and made to be super wearable.

From designer to luxe for less, these styles check off all of the 8 major summer fashion trends this season.
1. Bralettes & Crop Tops
A trend that was big last year and is still going strong for summer fashion 2023. If bralettes aren’t motivation to tone up I don’t know what is. With midriffs more on show it’s either be brave or put in some extra gym time and get juicing. There are so many pretty styles from Versace prints to soft black lace to sports bras you can find a style that’s yours.
My Versace crop top is actually part of a vintage Versace skirt set.
How to style a bralette in 2023
The beauty of bralettes is that they’re so versatile. Some bralette styling ideas include:
- Under a blazer.
- With a mini skirt suit.
- With wide leg pants.
- Styled with shorts.
- Layered under a sheer top or dress.
2. Cargo everything
Cargo pants are one of the pant styles I always love seeing come back as they’re so comfortable and versatile. If pants are too warm for summer, swap them out for cargo skirts or shorts. Dress them up or down to fit into your lifestyle, combine with the bralette trend or style with a crisp white t-shirt and blazer.
I’ve linked some gorgeous designer styles as well as some more affordable options from ASOS, etc. Shop the cargo trend.
Corsets and corset dresses first came back in style around the same time as Bridgerton, the Netflix series, but the corset and bustier trend and regency era fashion are here to stay. Feminine corset dresses are very much still in fashion for Summer 2023. Whether it’s a dress or top, this is a super flattering trend to have fun with.
Get the corset trend.
4. Metallics and sparkle rule for Summer 2023
Prepare for party and statement dressing to continue in 2023 with the most sparkly and high shine styles. For the most on trend looks, seek style inspiration from a lot of the 2023 runway shows. I’m absolutely loving the metallic dress trend and am fully embracing this 2023 summer fashion which looks absolutely stunning in the sun.
5. Summer Fashion Trends 2023 | Cut Outs
Cut outs continue to be a major fashion trend for Summer 2023. This trend was seen all over the Spring Summer 2023 runways and is easier to pull off than you think. If having your entire midriff out doesn’t appeal, look for side and back cut outs inside. Equally sexy but a lot easier to wear to dinner.
The great thing about this Summer 2032 fashion trend is that it’s easy to dress up or down with different shoes and accessories. From beachy casual to evening glam.
6. Summer Fashion Trends 2023 | Denim on denim
Denim on denim is one of those super comfortable summer fashion trends for everyday. This trend was seen all over the Spring Summer 2023 runways and is one of the easier styles to pull off.
It’s just as good for the day as it is to dress up at night with a denim dress and sexy denim knee high boots.
7. Sheer layers
Sheer tops, dresses and layers sound a bit daunting at first but they’re actually pretty easy to style and you can make them as sexy or demure as you want. Whether it’s a sheer coverup dress for the beach, sexy going out dress or sheer shirt, step outside your comfort zone and give this summer trend a go.
8. Platforms and flatforms
I find platform heels one of the comfiest heels to wear so I’m so glad to see them staying around again this season as they’re so good for cheating longer legs. Plus they tend to be so much more comfortable than stiletto heels.
