As we anticipate the arrival of Spring 2023, Style My Soul asked nine professionals from various industries to share their favorite fashion trends for the season.
As someone who has always loved experimenting with fashion, I have to say that I am absolutely smitten with the Spring 2023 trend of oversized blazers paired with shorts or skirts. There is just something about the effortless coolness of this look that draws me in every time. Plus, oversized blazers are so versatile — you can dress them up for a professional look or down for a more casual vibe. And when paired with shorts or a skirt, they just scream “springtime fun!” I love being able to experiment with different colors and patterns to create a look that is uniquely mine. It’s a trend that makes me feel confident and stylish, and I can’t wait to see how other fashion enthusiasts will interpret it this season.

Groovy Prints and Playful Patterns
I think Spring 2023 is all about embracing your inner free spirit with a splash of bold colors and patterns to really drive the point home. You could go with muted pastels or vivid contrasting colors as long as you’re enjoying expressing your inner flower child. Think groovy printed blouses, psychedelic patterned dresses, or even a pair of floral trousers into your wardrobe — it’s all about expressing your individuality.

As someone who loves fashion, I am excited to see that retro-inspired styles are making a comeback as a Spring 2023 fashion trend. The 70s and 80s-inspired looks are my absolute favorite, with bold colors, funky patterns, and a sense of playfulness. I love how these styles are versatile, allowing me to mix and match different pieces to create unique and personalized outfits. The throwback pieces remind me of my mom’s fashion sense back in the day, and it makes me feel connected to the past while still being fashionable in the present.

One of my favorite Spring 2023 fashion trends is tie-dye. Tie-dye is a fun and expressive way to show off your personality. The bright colors and patterns of tie-dye can create unique and stylish outfits, perfect for the upcoming Spring season. I love tie-dye because it allows me to stand out and be creative with my wardrobe.

High-waisted shorts create a flattering and timeless look, perfect for any day or night out. The cut and shape of the shorts emphasize curves in all the right places while also providing comfort and flexibility. They look great paired with various tops, from casual tank tops to luxurious blazers for an office-ready ensemble. High-waisted shorts can easily transition from day to night with minimal effort — just swap out your shoes, and you’re ready to go. They’re also extremely versatile — we can dress them up with heels or down with sandals, depending on the look you are going for. Whether at a beach party, strolling around town, or meeting friends for lunch, high-waisted shorts will keep your style game strong!

Shag Haircut Revival
One of my favorite Spring 2023 hair trends is the return of the “shag” haircut. This modern take on the classic 70s style features layers, texture, and often incorporates curtain bangs. The shag haircut is versatile and works well with various hair types, from straight to wavy and curly. I appreciate this trend because it offers a carefree, lived-in look that exudes effortless cool. Additionally, the shag haircut can be easily adapted to suit individual preferences, making it a popular and stylish choice for the season. In my salon, most of my clients are asking for it.

Bold, Vibrant Colors
My favorite Spring 2023 fashion trend is the use of bold, bright, and vibrant colors. Designers are embracing bold colors, such as neon shades of green, pink, and orange, as well as bright hues of blue, red, and yellow. These colors are being incorporated into various fashion pieces, including dresses, suits, and accessories. One reason why this trend is gaining popularity is that it is a departure from the muted and understated colors that have dominated fashion in recent years. Bold and bright colors are associated with confidence, positivity, and energy, which is something that many people are looking for after a year of lockdowns and social distancing. In addition, the use of bold colors is also a reflection of a broader trend toward individual expression and personal style. With the rise of social media and online shopping, people are more aware of the latest fashion trends and are more likely to experiment with their style.

Loose and Bootleg Jeans
Bye-bye, skinny jeans! I am beyond excited to see the return of loose and bootleg jeans as a popular fashion trend for women this spring. Although I still love a good legging, it’s nice to see some variation when it comes to putting on a great pair of jeans to dress up or down. Way more comfortable, in my opinion!
