Fashion experts have predicted the top trends of 2023 in the hopes of helping prepare your capsule wardrobes, de-clutter, donate any out-of-fashion pieces and give insight into what’s trending in 2023.
The biker trend stems from pulling nostalgic leather and grunge-style pieces, incorporating them into everyday wear, and spicing up a party look. The trend is often seen when mixing feminine silhouettes with boxy oversized leather pieces. Celebrity fashion favorites such as Sydney Sweeney and Hailey Bieber are often seen stepping out in biker-style outfits, proving just how popular the biker look is and will be this year.
Searches for ‘leather pants’ are at an average of 129,000 times a month in the U.S., alongside searches for ‘biker jacket’ seeing a 101% increase over the past 90 days and searches for ‘biker boots’ increased by 165% over the past month.
At the end of last year, we saw the re-introduction of all things metallic, with silver taking over the internet and the runway. The style has already become an obsession on social media, especially on TikTok. The hashtag #silveroutfit has surpassed over three million views, and #metallicoutfits also reached an impressive 595,200 views.
Many might believe shiny metallic outfits are just for the sparkle season at Christmas, but that is not the case. It is also not just limited to gold and silver pieces as the industry is seeing more and more colors venturing into popularity. Violets, baby blues, and shimmery greens have all popped onto the radar recently, which means the high-shine style is set to be big in 2023.
In particular that caught fans’ eyes are Margot Robbie. Whilst filming for her upcoming movie Barbie, the actress paired a neon pink western-style two-piece with a white cowboy hat and matching bandana. Another celebrity that hugely influenced the cowboy core is Harry Styles after appearing at multiple of his concerts wearing cowboy hats. Fans swooned over him at his concerts while wearing cowboy hats and feather boas, which increased searches for ‘cowgirl hat’ in the US to increase 117%.
This girly aesthetic based on Mattel Barbie dolls is definitely one for those that love a preppy, bold, and bright outfit. This trend is mainly focused on bubblegum pink and fuchsia pieces inspired by all things girly, which was a huge trend in the early 2000s.
With Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie set to hit our screens later this year, we can expect to see hot-pink styles all over social media this year.
