Unexpected Items That We Believe Will Become Mainstream in 2023
Fashion is constantly evolving and what may have been considered unexpected or unconventional in the past can quickly become fashionable. Here are a few items that we believe will go viral this year.
1 || Denim tops
Yes, denim on the bottom will forever be in, but in 2023, the attention is shifting towards well-tailored blouses & jackets in denim. If you are not sure about denim tops yet, you can always go with the classic jacket or vest way. Or maybe try a western-inspired look and go for a relaxed or oversized fit or asymmetrical denim shirt. If you love denim, opt for full denim looks as they are taking over like never have before. Denim blouses can be worn in a variety of ways, depending on the style of the blouse. Wear it tucked into a pair of jeans or a skirt for a casual look. Or paired with pants for a more formal look.
2 || Boxer shorts
All over social media, street style, and the runway, boxer shorts have become more popular in recent years coinciding with the relaxation of dress codes during the pandemic. Although boxer shorts are often thought of as casual or loungewear, The Row’s recent runway presentation has demonstrated that boxer shorts can be worn in a refined and sophisticated manner as well. Take inspiration from The Row’s runway and style your crisp boxer shorts with a button-down, a tailored coat, and sneakers. Stick to monochromatic looks as they are the chicest.
3 || Skinny pants
If there is one piece you need to add to your wardrobe this year it is skinny pants. They have become the go-to choice instead of denim. Opt for suede, wool, and legging versions as we expect to see them more than other styles.
4 || Elevated flip-flops
Flip-flops have been gaining momentum in recent years, but in 2023 they are expected to reach new heights. So now is the best time to invest in these shoes, particularly in the more sophisticated leather versions. Skip the platform flip-flops this year and instead go for more sleek designs.
5 || Satin outwear
Although we are not sure about this one, it won’t change the fact that satin outwear is going to be a big hit in 2023. This great layering piece has made a huge impact on 2023 runways. That said, expect to see these cool, shiny pieces a lot soon.
6 || Exposed socks
How to make a piece that is as simple as socks look ten times cooler? Wear it in unexpected ways; with heels, ballets or loafers. Experiment with different shades and shoe combinations.
7 || Cowboy boots
These are on their way to becoming wardrobe staples. They have been sticking around for a while and don’t seem to leave the fashion scene anytime soon. This year, western boots are taking on new forms, reinvented into modern sleek shapes. They are versatile enough to pair with everything from mini dresses and cut-offs in summer to midi skirts, jeans, and slouchy jumpers in the colder months.
