In the spirited realm of fashion, Summer 2023 is a season that celebrates the joy of dressing up. The sunny months are made brighter with daring mix and match ensembles, the hypnotizing allure of various shades of purple, the chic touch of bow details, and the functional style of multiple pockets. With the world acting as our catwalk, let’s plunge into this season’s top trends.
Summer Black & Glam Details
Black is no longer the cold season’s exclusive color; it’s taking the summer by storm with a glamorous twist such as in the Ulla Johnson Aurore Tiered Ruffle Crisscross Dress. Embrace the classic sophistication of noir combined with sequins, rhinestones, and metallic accents for an unexpected summer look like in the Zadig & Voltaire Jamelia Sequins Leo Midi Skirt. A black silk slip dress such as the Alexanderwang.t Lace-Trim Draped Slip Dress adorned with silver jewelry, for example, delivers a stunning contrast, perfect for those balmy nights under the city lights.
The intimate appeal of lingerie-inspired fashion comes to life in the heat of summer. This trend showcases silken fabrics, lace accents, and corset-style tops like in the Sandro Roxette Bustier Midi Dress that exude a sensual yet sophisticated appeal. Think delicate camisoles paired with high-waisted shorts, or a lace-adorned bodysuit paired with a satin midi skirt such as the Theory Silk Satin Pull-On Skirt. It’s all about blurring the lines between innerwear and outerwear, creating a sultry yet chic summertime vibe as best expressed in the Cinq à Sept Petra Sleeveless Lace-Trim Faux-Wrap Silk Dress.
Modern Shirting & Asymmetries
The realm of shirting gets an avant-garde makeover this season. Classic button-downs are being reinvented with bold asymmetries, such as one-shoulder designs or uneven hemlines like in the Theory Tamalee Off-the-Shoulder Shirt. Opt for a deconstructed shirt such as the T By Alexander Wang Halter-Detail Striped Cotton Poplin Shirt paired with tailored trousers for a workwear outfit that defies norms, or a shirt dress with a skewed hemline for a fresh take on summer casual. This trend is a testament to the transformative power of an innovative cut that can also happen in a skirt’s hem. Best example is the Diane von Furstenberg Striped High-Waist Asymmetric Ruffle Silk Skirt.
Sheer Layers & Elements
Summer 2023 invites you to flirt with transparency through sheer layers and elements like in the Maje Janvier Embroidered Tulle Floral Maxi Skirt. Sheer organza blouses, chiffon maxis, and tulle overlays offer a delicate and breezy choice for the warm weather. We love the allure of the Aritzia 1-01 Babaton Franck Lace Camisole Top! Not only does this trend allow for creative layering, but it also adds a whimsical, ethereal touch to any outfit. Balance the transparency by pairing a sheer blouse with a structured blazer, or a semi-sheer maxi dress with a solid slip underneath. The Sandro Mirtylles Lace Detail Sheer Top best represents this trend.
Mini-Length Flared Silhouettes
As we usher in the high temperatures, hemlines are rising. The mini-length flared silhouette trend offers a playful, youthful spirit, which is definitely the case with the Alexis Malin Long-Sleeve Lace Mini Dress. Flared mini skirts in bold prints, high-waist flared shorts, or mini dresses with voluminous skirts can create a dynamic, charming ensemble. The flared cut not only adds movement to these mini pieces but also delivers a flattering silhouette that suits a variety of body types. Our favorites include the Maje Jeko Guipure Lace Mini Flared Skirt and the Self-Portrait Embroidered Chiffon Tiered Mini Dress.
