The Fashion Trends of The Year

The Fashion Trends of The Year

Written by The Strategy

We have our thoughts on what the fashion trends of the year will be.

Each season brings with it a new set of trends. As we move out of the holidays, filled with sparkles and statement pieces, and into the tail end of the F/W season, we’ve been looking at trends bound to take over the entire year, not just a short season. These trends are ones we’ve been noticing on the runways and on fashions elite for the last few months, that are bound to take over in full force this year.

So, what are the fashion trends of the year, as predicted by Team TS?

#1 Blazers Over Everything

We argue that the blazer is one of the most versatile pieces of any wardrobe. It can elevate anything from jeans and t-shirt to a hooded sweatshirt, and can add a finishing touch to a gown or slip dress. If you were to ask any fashion folk for the top 10 items a closet must have, a blazer would most certainly make every one of their lists.

As we enter into 2023, we think everyone is getting the memo and blazers are going to be everywhere. At the moment, our favourite pairings are a mini skirt, sheer tights, killer heels or flat boosts and a blazer over top or a blazer, baseball hat and cashmere joggers.

#2 The Return of The Model Off-Duty/It-Girl Era

Please, please, please move over Y2K fashion. We never could fully get on board with the new iteration of early 2000 style and are here hoping instead for the return of 2010s fashion. In the 2010s, models off-duty were the catnip of every street style photographer and trends were set by what Erin Wasson and crew were wearing between shows, rather than on the runway. After Celine’s Winter 2023 presentation, Celine At The Wiltern, gave us major flashbacks to the early 10s, we just knew they were about to make their return. Courréges SS22 featuring messy half-done hair and intentionally ripped tees, and Coperni’s collection of vests and cargo pants solidified our theory.

In case you weren’t there for the heyday of the model off-duty, we can tell you that it was all about easy, non-chalant cool. White tanks paired with just about anything, denim jackets (often with studded details), slouchy bags, and a ‘could care less’ attitude.

#3 Understated Luxury

After the craze of buying into Demna’s Balenciaga of splashy logos and distressed clothing sold at excessive price points, we believe that this year, fashion is going to make the move to understated elegance. As we mentioned in our own resolutions for the year, we feel many others are going to be investing in quality, long lasting pieces over the trend-driven pieces that have been dominating our IG feeds. During last years NYFW shows, we spied many editors rocking beautiful pieces with no obvious branding, but great craftsmanship and tailoring.

The Kings (or Queens, actually) of this category are The Row, Khaite and Totême, with well made pieces meant to help build a ‘forever closet’ that will not only never go out of style, but will also stand the test of time, quality wise.
