The last model has walked off the New York Fashion Week runway for the spring/summer 2023 season, and we are left with inspiration for the new year.

New York designers favored two distinct color palettes for the spring 2023 season. We are seeing bright hues, and also mixed neutrals; which are reminiscent of 1970s fashion.

Speaking of 1970s inspiration, the decades of influence from New York for the spring season were heavy on the 1970s, and also mixed in with 1960s vibes, and some 1990s and early 2000s trends. Think the return of Jellies and swamp foot. Yikes!

The handbag trends from NYFW for spring 2023 include the return of the doctor bag, slouchy and large bags, jelly bags, and the continuation of the hobo bag, moon shaped bag, small bags with structure, and structured clutches.

For fashion, we are seeing asymmetric necklines and hemlines, maxi skirts and dresses, 1960s mini dresses and skirts, more puff sleeves, off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder necklines, pencil skirts, blazers, all-white looks, cut-outs, and wait for it-it’s very groundbreaking-florals!!!

The overall vibe for spring 2023 is a return to dressing up. Look for less loungewear, and more dressy styles. While street sneakers are still hot, they are paired with pants and a blazer instead of a track suit. The rule of this thumb this spring; comb your hair and tuck in your shirt, there is no room for being sloppy.

Well, that’s it! Not a lot of changes from fall 2022. What are you looking forward to for the spring 2023 season?

Thanks for stopping by!
