Top Style Trends

A new season is underway, and it brings fresh fashion trends with it. Some will flash in the pan, while others stay stylish for years to come.

Puffer sleeves cracked the fashion veneer with balloon-shaped sweaters at Fendi, perfectly puffed shirtdresses at Rodarte and double-breasted winter coats at JW Anderson. Yellow tints gave denim mini skirts, duster coats and body-hugging jeans a patina effect.

1. Wide-Leg Jeans

A classic that will never go out of style, wide-leg jeans can be paired with just about any shirt. A clean white tee is the perfect look for a casual weekend ensemble, or try wearing them with a simple sweater in a similar shade for a monochromatic vibe. To accentuate your waistline, consider tucking your top in or opting for a half-tuck.

Baggy wide-leg jeans can also add a modern feel to evening looks. To keep the look sophisticated, pair them with a blouse or sweater in a Bardot neckline, or throw on a boxy blazer to balance out the extra fabric. If you’re feeling adventurous, rock ripped denim for a grunge-inspired look.

2. Denim on Denim

Denim pieces like jeans and jackets are staple wardrobe items for most people. However, pairing two different denim items together (also known as the Canadian tuxedo) is a style trend that can make for a polarizing look.

One way to nail double denim is with a pair of jeans and a jacket in the same shade. This looks easy and chic, especially when the jeans are wide-leg and tailored so that they don’t look too bulky. Add a pair of sneakers to elevate the look even more.

You can also take a denim on denim look to a more daring level with a pair of overalls. This ’90s staple is making a comeback with Blake Lively and others wearing them to concerts and beyond.

3. Leather Accessories

Leather accessories are the most versatile fashion pieces. They come in different shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: they are durable and will stand the test of time. They also have a unique look that can elevate any outfit.

Fashion blogger and stylist Jackie Condura says faux leather midi skirts are the new staple this season. She recommends pairing them with a blazer and chunky sweaters for an on-trend fall and winter look.

Another trend you should try this season is cottagecore, a new style aesthetic that combines feminine elements like wide tulle dresses and pink bows with street-style grunge such as heavy piercings and lug sole shoes.

4. Black Leather

Not a fashion season passes without leather making an appearance on runways and the high street, and 2023 is no different. Biker aesthetics are one route to go, as shown by Louis Vuitton, JW Anderson and MSGM, but there’s a softer approach with black-on-black dresses, coats and pants from designers including Lamarque and SRVC.

Another softer take on the trend comes via utilitarian clothing like boiler suites, worn by the likes of Irina Shayk and Rosie Huntington-Whitely. And if you really want to amp up the edgy look, add fringe. It’s a fashion-week favorite of stylists including Harmony Pilobello and Shilpa Iyengar, according to Insider.

5. Cropped Cardigans

Nothing says modern-day cute like a cropped cardigan. You can mix it with lounge-ish sweatpants or a midi skirt to keep your outfit looking cool and on point. This trend also comes in a variety of fabrics and styles, from basic button-ups to embroidered or embellished ones.

Dad runners, chunky street kicks — whatever you call them, these chunky shoes have been taking over runways and streets alike. And this year, we’re seeing even more styles with 3D effects, like blown-out petals or Spongebob characters.

Flats are still going strong, especially in a more structured form than the clunky ballet styles of the early 2000s. Look for lug-sole loafers in shades of green and pink this year for a preppy,’schoolcore’ vibe.

6. Skinny Knits

Nothing screams chic and girly more than a skinny knit. From the runway to your favourite high-street stores, this one-and-done hero piece makes it easy to look stylish and put together a chic outfit without having to think too much about what pants and shirt to wear.

From floral prints to plaids and stripes, there are so many ways to style this trend. Add a bold pop of color to monochromatic looks, or wear it in full effect with a ripped denim jumpsuit for an effortlessly cool vibe.
