 BUBBLE HEMS

The playful bubble hem makes an appearance every few years. While it’s unlikely that it will become a fashion favorite like the A-line midi skirt, a bubble skirt is still a fun addition.

The runway saw many different bubble hems. This full silhouette was all about creating drama, from floral maxi dresses to minis that skimmed the thighs, and everything in between. This larger-than-life style was available in a variety of colors.

This silhouette is more difficult to wear. As always, it all comes down to how you balance your proportions so that you are wearing this look and not the other. Wear a fitted, tucked in top with a bubble-hem skirt to show off your waist. A more tailored top will highlight your hips. You may choose a dress. You have two options: a dress that shows off your legs or one that shows off your arms.

Here are some things to watch out for:
  1. Bubble hem skirts are feminine and elegant. For occasionwear, choose textured or high-shine fabrics.
  2. Bubble hem dresses: To show off your pins, pair with thigh-hem versions of thigh hem. For a new look, wear them with chunky wedges and sleek plimsolls.

RUFFLES

We loved the most feminine trend, and ruffles large and small were seen on many runways. Volume played a major role in the interpretation of clothing for 2023, signaling a return back to glamour for day and evening dressing. The explosion of ruffles has been a trend for several seasons. From big skirts and big sleeves to large sleeves, it feels like a continuation of a desire be more visible and present.

Ruffles add a party-ready touch to skirts. They can be positioned vertically, horizontally or diagonally and give them a decadent look. Ruffled detailing is a way to feel elevated, whether you’re looking for bold evening wear at Halpern or Badgley Mischka, delicate chiffon-ruffles at Carolina Herrera or the dramatic daywear at Adam Lippes.

Antonia suggests that you gently enter the ruffle trend if you are uncomfortable with the statements it makes. Ruffles can be a great way to style yourself – if your confidence is low, you can opt for smaller ruffle details such as skirt hems or blouses.

Here are some things to watch out for:
  1. Ruffled skirts: An elongated, ruffled ruffle is a great choice when it comes to long skirt outfits. Vertical ruffles will draw attention to your silhouette.
  2. Ruffled shoulders: Tops and sweatshirts come with appliquéd ruffles that add luxury detail to casual styles.
  3. Ruffled blouses: A great way to inject this look into your workwear wardrobe. A ruffled blouse instantly softens androgynous items and tailoring.

FLORALS

“Florals for spring? Ground breaking.” This may be one of the most famous fashion quotes, but florals are back in fashion for spring/summer 2023. London Fashion Week featured large-scale flower prints on the runway. Joe and Rixo. Everyone put their own spins on it, but the focus was on bright, bold colors for maximum impact.

Florals are the most popular print for summer. They’re often used to make wedding guest dresses or to dress brides. Bolder palettes offer timeless femininity and a nod towards the dopamine-driven trend of dressing last year. They also give an indication to how color can be used to boost mood.

This trend will be covered heavily by direct-to-market brands. Florals are a safe investment as they will not go out of fashion.

Florals are a timeless trend that will continue to be a staple in spring and summer wardrobes. Antonia says that 2023 is the year to go bolder and bigger than ever.

Here are some things to watch out for:
  1. Bold and bright florals: Don’t forget the ditsy prints! The spring/summer trend in 2023 is all about bold, statement-making blooms. You can use large-scale repeat patterns for almost anything.
  2. Floral dresses are a safe choice. They can be worn for many occasions and can be re-used as a coverup.
  3. Print blouses: A printed blouse can instantly lift your everyday basic pieces, and bring classic blazers or tailored pants into the new season.

UNDERWEAR AS OUTERWEAR

Underwear as outerwear, another trend that has been around for a while, is a risky fashion trend that changes in popularity. This look is more suitable for spring/summer, as it doesn’t offer much warmth. For the fashion trends 2023 you can expect a vintage-inspired version of the look. The look featured Erdem’s striking corset detailing, and was paired with full, crinoline-styled skirts. It was more feminine than the previous versions. Although lingerie was once reserved for outerwear, 2023 will offer a delicate interpretation. It is reminiscent of an era when corsets were common, and will be refashioning them as dress bodices for next season. Christopher Kane, who incorporated vinyl braces and bra cups with lace cups to give the look a modern feel, was more in tune with Erdem’s fashion history.

Corset tops and bonded bodice gowns are a tricky trend to try. If you feel a bit more adventurous, you can wear a longline bralette underneath a blazer and high-waisted tailored trousers. Antonia says this allows you to reference the trend while not showing too much flesh.”

Here are some things to watch out for:
  1. Fit and flare dresses: Look out for fitted or corset-style tops paired with longer, more statement skirts. This style is romanticized underwear and shapewear that favors an A-line silhouette.
  2. Slip dresses: Popular for work and play, slip dresses have regained popularity with the ’90s fashion trend, but are now back in fashion with the lingerie trend. Look out for thigh-grazing styles and silky fabrics with lace details.

BOW DETAILS

The bigger the bows, the better. Statement styles, large-sized and bold designs were on display at London Fashion Week, with Susan Fang, Richard Quinn (TE), BMUET(TE) and Klamby leading the charge.

Bows, like florals, are a popular trend in warmer months due to their femininity, romantic feel and suitability for special occasions. For a bold and pretty look, you can use them in silks, cotton, and tulles.

Here are some things to watch out for:
  1. Shoulder details: Featured at Erdem, Susan Fang, the bow shoulder strap details will add a sculptural touch to dresses for 2023. They offer feminine dressing for the most beautiful bridesmaid and wedding guest dresses.
  2. Bow embellishments: We’ve seen many raised textures, from the slim ribbons at BMUET(TE) to the more embroidered and appliquéd styles.
  3. The best blouses and shirts for this year’s fashion trend are the ones with the puffybow necklines.
  4. For work or occasionwear, soften your tailoring with silky blouses made of chiffon or silky silk with statement necklines.
