Hey gorgeous fashionistas! I'm so ready for warmer weather to finally make an appearance and bring on the summer fashion. Are you with me? This season is all about bringing some fun and excitement into your wardrobe with bold colours, playful prints, and textures that will make heads turn. So, get ready to upgrade your wardrobe for SS23 with these top ten trends that are guaranteed to keep you looking stylish all summer long.

1) The Bold and the Blue-tiful

David Koma SS23

Last summer, fuchsia pink was the reigning colour, but this year a new bold hue has emerged - cobalt blue. Fashion giants like Balenciaga, Versace, and Valentino have made this captivating shade a centrepiece in their collections, infusing a strong and striking pop of colour to their designs. The rich tone of cobalt blue is perfect for those looking to add some drama to their wardrobe and make a bold statement this season. Don't miss out on this must-have colour! Tip - If you prefer a more subtle approach, opt for accessories like a cobalt blue bag or shoes to add a pop of colour to your outfit.

2) Heart-on Your Sleeve

Viktor & Rolf

Another trend that graced the runways was the use of heart prints and motifs, adding a playful touch to outfits. Brands such as Moschino and Alice + Olivia incorporated this whimsical pattern into their

collections, bringing a touch of fun and joy to the runway. Tip - If you want to keep it more low-key, incorporate the trend with heart print socks peeking out of sneakers or sandals.

3) Flower Power 2.0

Roksanda SS23

Florals have always been a favourite for SS seasons, but this time there's a new twist. Designers like Prada, Gucci, and Chanel have taken the classic trend to a new level by adding a 3D look to their floral designs. From appliqué to rosette tops, shoes, and even headbands, these designers have used layered fabrics and textures to create a stunningly realistic effect that adds dimension to any outfit. The result is a fresh take on an old favourite that's perfect for the sunny days of summer. Tip – If you prefer a more understated look, go for a 3D floral hair accessory or brooch to add some dimension to your outfit.

4) Sheer Elegance

Sheer fabrics have always had their place in various fashion trends, but they have never been more popular than they are this SS23 season. From dress overlays to lingerie layering, this trend has taken over the runway. Designers like Dior, Givenchy, and Alexander McQueen showcased sheer blouses, dresses, and skirts, adding an elegant and sophisticated touch to their collections. The transparency of the fabric adds a subtle sexiness to any outfit, making it a versatile trend that can be incorporated into any style. Tip – try wearing lingerie you already own to layer under a blazer or over a skirt with a belt.

5) Get Hooked on Crochet

Crochet is another trend that has made a comeback this SS23 season. Designers such as Fendi, Dior, and Oscar de la Renta showcased a variety of crochet pieces on the runway, from swimsuits to dresses and even handbags. This trend adds a touch of bohemian flair to any outfit and is perfect for warm weather. The intricate and delicate nature of crochet makes it a versatile trend that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Whether you opt for a crochet dress for a romantic date night or a crochet bikini for a day at the beach, this trend is a must-try for SS23. With its timeless appeal and unique texture, crochet is sure to become a staple in your summer wardrobe.

6) Let's Get This Party Bag Started

The party bag has made a major comeback this season, and it's not hard to see why. This cute and compact accessory is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit, and designers from all over the world have been showcasing their own unique takes on this trend.

JW Anderson SS23

From the beaded bags at Shrimps to the satin pouches at Versace, there's no shortage of options when it comes to this trend. Whether you're looking for something flashy or more subdued, there's a party bag out there for everyone. This trend has been building momentum since last year, and it seems like it's only going to get more popular as the season progresses.

7) Sparkle and Shine

Valentino RTW Spring 2023

Sequins are not just for the holidays, and this season's runways prove it. Designers such as Chanel, Gucci, and Marc Jacobs have brought sequins into the spotlight, making them a must-have for any fashion-forward wardrobe. I've always been a firm believer in the versatility of sequins, and it's great to see these designers agree. From glittering dresses to sparkling separates, this trend is all about making a statement and standing out from the crowd. So, get ready to shine bright like a diamond this SS23 with the hottest sequin pieces of the season. Tip – if you don’t want to be head to toe in sequins, try pairing a sequin skirt with a white shirt for an chic elegant vibe. Or wear a sequin blazer over a t-shirt and shorts paired with some killer heels.

8) Sole Searching: The Chunky Sole

Hermes SS23

Get ready to give your feet some love this season with the chunky sneaker and sandal trend! This trend has been taking over the runways, with designers like Balenciaga, Gucci, and Prada showcasing their own unique takes on the chunky footwear trend. Not only are they stylish, but these shoes provide extra comfort and support for our feet, making them the perfect choice for a day out on the town or even a casual workday. The platform or should I say flatform sole adds height to your look while still being comfortable enough for all-day wear. So, get ready to step up your footwear game this season and give your feet the love they deserve!

9) Fringe Frenzy

Salvatore Dragone

Fringing is back and better than ever this SS23 season! From clothing to accessories, designers have been incorporating this fun and playful trend into their collections. Fringing can add a touch of bohemian flair to any outfit, and it's a great way to add some movement and texture to your look. We saw fringing on the runways of major fashion houses like Dior, Celine, and Saint Laurent, who showcased the trend on everything from jackets to skirts to handbags. Whether you opt for a subtle fringe detailing or go all out with a full-fringed jacket, this trend is a fun and unique way to spice up your wardrobe this season.

10) Soft and Dreamy: Embrace the Sweetness of Pastels

And finally, for all of you who are pink lovers like me, don't worry! This season, pink may not be dominating the runway like last season, but it's still making an appearance. Instead of the bold and bright shades we saw last year, this season's pink trend is all about soft and subtle pastel hues. And it's not just pink that's getting the pastel treatment. Other soft pastel shades like lavender, mint green, and baby blue are also taking centre stage this season. These hues are perfect for creating a delicate and feminine look and are sure to add a touch of sweetness to any outfit. So, if you're a fan of pink, this season's trend is right up your alley! Brands like Fendi, Chanel, and Valentino showcased this trend, making it a perfect choice for anyone looking for a more subtle and understated look.

In conclusion, the fashion world has presented us with an abundance of trendy options for SS23, and these were just a few of the standouts. From bold and bright hues to soft and sweet pastels, there's a fashion-forward look for every style. Whether you're out and about or enjoying some beach time, don't be afraid to mix and match and have fun with your outfits. Also you don't have to break the bank to stay on-trend this season, as many of these styles are timeless and repeat from past seasons. Consider shopping pre-loved or giving your closet a creative refresh by experimenting with new pairings. Let's have fun expressing ourselves through fashion and embrace the joy of styling!
