Now that we have survived January, which feels like the longest Monday ever…We often find ourselves fully ready to tackle the new year’s challenges, for most of us it can be easy to begin with our wardrobes. Style trends come and go and each year also ushers in a new set of fun new rules for your closet. With New York Fashion Week (NYFW) beginning, the 2023 Fall/Winter shows are sure to bring some bomb sartorial moments. Before that hits, I’ve enlisted the help of Birmingham Style Enthusiast + friend: Tonia Trotter Price – together we have compiled a list of our top 4 things to look out for this Spring/Summer.
Now a lot of us have returned to the office. After a year or two of wearing sweats at home, the boardroom looks a little different. Corporate attire leans a little more creative now. Individuality tells your client who you are and cue you up for an after work night out
Leather and vegan leather feel so rich. And it can still be appropriate for spring in lighter colors.
Spring style is synonymous with color. Keep it chic with sleek shapes and tone on tone layers.
SWEET (BUT SPICY):
Take sweet styles like gingham and Mary Janes and make it spicy with a platform heel or a little crop. Think flirty, not skanky.
LEATHER & BAGGY
LOOSE FIT IS IN and it isn’t going anywhere. Yes, Leather in the spring is a thing. Weather permitting, find creative ways to slip leather into YOUR wardrobe.
Y2K icons are super happy about this trend cutting into 2023. Cropped Shirts are very popular in menswear right now with artists like Justin Bieber and Timothee Chalamet.
THE TIE IS BACK
While we may ditch the more formalwear during Covid and years after, school boy prep is making its way into streetwear. Don’t follow your traditional dress code.
MAGENTA (Purple Reign)
Cue Purple Rain by Prince because Magenta (Pantone 2023 color), lavender, Mauve, Lilac and other hues of purple integrated into spring/summer looks too.
