Spring 2023 is just about here! The blossoms are blooming, the weather is hot, cold, warm, cool, wet, dry, and icy, and the sun will sometimes say hi. When you walk into a store, the colors are bright, and the spring cheer is everywhere. Love that!

There are a few trends from last year we are seeing continue into this year, while a few new trends are emerging for spring 2023. Here are the top trends for spring 2023 we all need in our wardrobe.

Interesting Shoulders: This means shoulders with a little somethin’ somethin’. Look for puff sleeves, one-shoulder looks, and cut-outs.

Small handbags: Despite the oversize bags on the runways, the streets still prefer smaller bags. Look for small and medium sized hobo bags, moon shaped bags, interesting and non-traditional shaped bags, small one handle satchels or lady bags, straw and natural fiber bags, the baguette, and plastic or jelly bags are hotter than hot. Look for handbags in classic neutrals, or happy colors.

Square Toes: The square toe is making a comeback, and as we move through the year you will see it more and more. Look for square toes and enjoy them! Square toes allow your toes room to wiggle. Love that!

Layered jewelry: For the spring 2023 season, look for layered necklaces, layered bracelets, and classic pieces; that can be layered! Layer-up your baubles!

No Skinny Jeans: There is one denim rule this spring 2023 season, no skinny jeans! Look for straight leg jeans, flare jeans, and wide leg styles. Your jeans can be traditional blue, or a color from the rainbow; as long as they are not skinny. The hemline can drape over your shoe, be jogger-style, ankle length, or cropped. Anything goes, as long as your jeans are not skinny.

Cut outs: This trend is going to last well into 2024, so get into it! Cut outs on your shoulder, at your waist, on your back, or anywhere; cut outs on your clothing is hotter than hot.

Vintage inspiration: Look for 1960s and 1970s hemlines, meaning mini and maxi. Designers took a lot of inspiration from the 1960s through the 1980s. Hemlines are from the 1960s and 1970s, while colors and sleeves are from the 1980s. You might still see some 1990s in there, but the ’60’s through to the ’80’s are where spring 2023 is at. Groovy.

Stay anonymous: Shove those loud logos to the back of your closet. Your handbags and belts should be anonymous. If people can tell the brand or designer of anything you are wearing from a mile away, it’s so last year. Look for, and wear, quiet luxury.

Well, there you go! The top spring 2023 trends which made it from the runways to the streets for the spring 2023 season. Love!
