Reimagined Denim 

Whilst denim is a forever fave in our wardrobe, this new era is making us realise just how vital denim is when it comes to outfit inspo.

Think oversized EVERYTHING, denim co-ords and of course denim on denim.

Can we also take a second for the denim printed mesh? Next level!

Corsets

You could probably guess but corsets are another trend that are continuing into 2023.

Pretty sure we have Bridgeton to thank for it but either way, we’ll continue to add corsets to our wish lists until we’re told otherwise.

It’s Giving Grunge 

Grunge girl aesthetic became a must-have look during 2022.

Even before Wednesday Addams hit our screens, the all black faux leather looks were proving why grunge will ALWAYS inspire our wardrobes.

So, whether you’re all about studs, layering and chunky platforms or prefer more of a muted grunge look – the trend is sticking with us for 2023.

Want to style the trend but struggling to figure out what do you wear with leather trousers? We got you!

Rework your silhouette by styling cropped or oversized pieces for easy OOTD vibes.

Why not team coloured faux leather with black accessories for a ultra feminine look?

90’s Minimalism

90’s minimalism is a firm fave when it comes to 2023 fashion trends.

For the blazer lovers amongst us this boxy, tailored look will serve all your scandi inspired ‘fits and confirm why it’s ok to add ANOTHER boxy blazer to bag.

Sure we have 10 in our wardrobe, but not in this shade of grey, right?

So, scrap the question are blazers in style for 2023? They’re bigger than ever!

Mini Dresses

Finally, mini dresses are once again proving why we love them so much!

Not only are they easy to style but with endless layering options you’ll be able to rewear them all year long.

Winter, we’re thinking sheer tights, chunky knee high boots and a oversized faux leather jacket.

Spring is ALL about oversized blazers layered over mini dresses.

Summer, sandals and a straw bag of course!

Autumn, team with a thin knit top, oversized shacket and chunky trainers for a clean girl inspired look.

Outfit goals confirmed!
