This year, trends are taking a turn for the utilitarian with cargo pants, denim, and wearable silhouettes all endorsed by the 2023 shows. That’s not to say that this year will be boring style-wise. Dramatic hem lengths and silver metallics are still part of the sartorial picture, albeit in more practical iterations than ever before, making it easier to stick to your capsule closet NYE resolution. In terms of colour, 2023 may finally wave trendy hot pink goodbye, making way for new, exciting hues, though don’t expect it to be all about Pantone’s colour of the year Viva Magenta.
Glossy red hues took over the Fall 2023 runways ranging from Sandy Liang and PatBo to Tory Burch and Wiederhoeft. Think Juicy reds with vibrant orange undertones that would look just as good in head-to-toe looks (see: a pantsuit) as accent accessory pieces (shoes, handbags, jewellery).
