Being a woman is hard enough from dealing with hormonal fluctuations, the expectation of smiling when we don’t want to, and putting our needs on the back burner for everyone else in our lives, add to the societal pressure of feeling like we need to look perfect all the time and it can get overwhelming. When it comes to dressing and styling yourself, it can get even more stressful as only some trends and styles work for some body types. While the most important thing about how you dress and style yourself is that you do it for yourself and recognize that you’re perfect just as you are, it can be helpful to have go-to styles in which you always feel confident.
Whether you’re looking to completely overhaul your wardrobe and reinvent yourself or just trying to add new key trendy pieces for warm weather in 2023, keep reading for the spring fashion trends that will look amazing whether you’re petite, plus, or straight-sized.
One of the most fun trends in the fashion world this year is investing in matching underwear and bra sets. Women have long just grabbed packs of cotton underwear and affordable bras, but the payoff of investing in high-quality intimates that match and the confidence they bring is something women are learning and willing to bet on. You may be the only one that sees your undergarments, but matching sets give you confidence, which is the essential thing you can put on each day.
While the Y2K trend is still something people are playing with, one fashion genre that’s been ruling the fashion world for years and isn’t going anywhere is the bohemian style, and it’s especially perfect when the weather is warm. Whether you opt for a peasant blouse, a tiered dress, or a floral maxi – petite, mid, and plus size boho clothing is something every woman needs in her wardrobe this year. The romantic but free spirit feel of this style of clothing is perfect for spring and summer road trips, exploring new cities and countries on vacation, and lounging poolside with your friends. Embrace the bohemian spirit while you wear the clothes, and you’ll get those wanderlust vibes synonymous with beautiful weather.
Decision fatigue is real, and some women experience it daily, but what to wear each day doesn’t need to be a source of it. Rompers are not only in trend for 2023, but their one-and-done nature makes them an easy outfit choice to throw on, not give a second thought and look polished every single time. Rompers don’t always have to be cheeky short either, so if you think this trend is only for the young, think again. Many fashion houses and brands offer a variety of rompers, so shop around and try on as many as it takes to find the one for you. Rompers are the summer’s version of the LBD (little black dress) and can work for everything from BBQs to garden parties and more elevated outdoor events.
Perhaps the cherry on top of any great is the jewelry you wear. Spring and summer weather is synonymous with wearing less clothing, so it’s a time when you can really play with your jewelry and other accessories to express your style and personality. 2023 is all about layering necklaces, not just simple gold necklaces, as we’ve seen in the last few years. Trdless and can be easily tailored to your preference, but layering necklaces work for everyone and certainly with the essentials mentioned above. Try mixing different textures like a daily gold necklace you never take off with a whimsical, freshwater pearl strand or a small multi-colored bead necklace. The options are endless.
Women should consider other trends this year as we head into warmer weather: white sneakers, cropped denim jackets, oversized tortoiseshell sunglasses, and replacing their poolside canvas totes with oversized leather handbags. The devil is in the details, so accessorize the above items with a bold lip color or a black cat eye to look and feel your best. Lastly, never, ever leave home without putting on SPF!
