Fashion trends change with the season, so you have to pay attention if you don’t want to miss the latest hot new thing. But if you’ve been out of the loop for a while, worry not; we’re here to give you the compressed version of what’s been going on in fashion.
Here are the most recent fashion trends, from what to wear to how to style yourself:
Celebrity Beauty Brands
Nowadays, wherever you look, you’ll find a beauty brand owned or promoted by a celebrity. While some do it for publicity (and the benefits it brings), some celebs want to create value in this niche. One of these celebrities is Selena Gomez and her Rare Beauty brand.
Selena’s Rare Beauty products made an impressive appearance at the Emmys, where the singer and businesswoman presented an award. Selena wore a simple look that highlighted her natural beauty, and, of course, her makeup artist only used products from the celebrity’s beauty line.
The best part about this is that we can recreate the look on ourselves for a dinner date, an event, or even a girls’ night out. All you need is to find the Rare Beauty products that fit your skin and style, and you’re set!
Classic and Elegant are Still in Fashion
It doesn’t matter how much things change on the catwalk, the classic and elegant style continues to be at the top. This fall, men can vamp up the classic formal look by combining bold pieces and adding a splash of color to their suits.
Of course, you can still be stylish without breaking the bank as long as you pay a bit of extra care to your look. Focus on classic clothing pieces that don’t go out of style, and pay a visit to the outlets in your city to find inspirational items that bring a breath of freshness into your style.
The Y2K Style is About to Go Away
The spring collections of 2022 were marked by the revival of the Y2K style, with a twist to fit the times. But, as with all fashion trends, the hype has dimmed away, and the spring of 2023 is awaiting something new.
Some suggest we should expect the revival of another twenty-something years old trend – the Indie Sleaze or the Hipster style. We’re already seeing Gen-Zs adopting the style on TikTok and Instagram – in their own interpretation, of course – so the path is already set.
As it turns out, the revival of the Indie Sleaze started during the lockdowns and the social distancing rules, when everyone gave up on fancy clothing and looking sharp. Now, we’ll have to wait and see if the trend will truly return and, if so, how long it will last.
Soft and Bubbly Materials for the Fall
As the end of the year approaches, it’s time to ditch t-shirts and leggings in favor of soft, fluffy materials that keep you warm and look good. Bubble dresses, cut-outs, and low-rise pants and skirts (influenced by the Y2K trends) must be paired with voluminous, purple sweaters accessorized with jewelry galore.
Be Bold and Steal the Show
The current trend is about finding confidence in your style and being happy with your attire (as long as it’s purple). So don’t hesitate to be yourself and find a style that defines your personality and fits the fashion trends. It may not be easy, especially on a budget, but it is doable.
Plus, nowadays, you can follow your favorite brands and celebrities and learn from their style. Overall, it’s a lot easier to accessorize and be fashionable now than it was twenty-something years ago, so don’t miss out and remember to have fun!
