Regarding fashion and specifically fashion week, the industry tries to uphold a delicate balance between longevity and trends. Designers work to craft collections that feel cohesive to their previous work while still breaking some form of a barrier, pushing their designs forward and inspiring a new season of style. As new designer collections debut around the world during fashion month, we begin to see clear fashion trends for 2023 emerge. With warm temps taking over the weather app, it’s time to start considering the summer trends for 2023. 

When it comes to trends, there is one question that reigns supreme—would you wear it? With mermaidcore, rosettes and shades of lavender dominating summer trends, you can see your favorite celebrities rock a trend before you decide if you want to yourself. 

As consumers, we subsequently work through the same tug-and-pull of trends that designers do but on the receiving end. Do we aim to be aspirational or affordable? Do we shop for the moment? Exhilarating, though potentially fleeting. Or, do we shop for the future? Curated for forever, at the risk of playing it a bit safe. Spoiler alert: there’s no correct answer. 

To be hyper-aware of trends and the evolving landscape of your own closet is to be a conscious consumer. The current state of the trend cycle moves at a dizzying pace—getting swept up in the current feels inevitable. The art of fashion and building your personal style forms when the wearer moves past consciously participating in trends and chooses to selectively participate. No designer includes every upcoming trend in their collections and frankly, neither should you. 

That being said, the fashion trends for 2023 are all over the board. From a continuation of rosette accessories and Y2K influence and an influx of too-sheer-for-work slip dresses to delicate dip-dye, the Spring/Summer ‘23 collections from New York Fashion Week create a “choose your own adventure” game plan. You can scroll through every trend, but only a special few will realistically make it into your closet. I’ve directed the top eight trends from the runway to try this summer.
