New Seasonal Trends in 2023

As we look forward to the new season, it's time for 2023's summer fashion trends. While we’ve seen some classic looks come back around, there are also some new trends that have been popping up this season. To start, high-waisted, wide-leg pants have been gaining traction throughout the year, and now they’re emerging as a must-have piece this summer. Additionally, summer scarves with plenty of prints, from florals and tie dyes to more geometric patterns, are great statement pieces, while leather is still making an appearance in skirts and jackets -- sometimes even paired together.

To summarize, while we may be seeing recycled trends this season as well as timeless classics, it’s important to keep an eye out for those small changes in style that can work wonders when it comes to creating an entirely new look. Now, our next topic will be just that: looking at how to reimagine these classic styles through trendy accessories and staple pieces.

  • According to a survey conducted by the National Retail Federation, in 2020 the majority of shoppers aged 18-24 planned to spend up to $500 on their summer wardrobe.
  • A study by Apparel Magazine found that more than 60% of shoppers consider durability and comfort as important factors when purchasing fashion items.
  • In 2020, bright colors were predicted to be one of the biggest trends for summer Fashion, with pastel and muted tones also popular, according to a survey by Refinery29.

Reimagining the Classics

In 2023, we will see a reimagining of classic items on the fashion scene. These items still hold their shape and design elements, but with a modern twist for an update on style. From the little black dress to the white oxford shirt, there is something for everyone when it comes to reimagining classics. For example, shirts are now being made from quick-dry materials that provide breathability and style. Additionally, important features such as collars, buttons, cuffs, and pockets have also been given a renewed look.

Many shoppers at the Phoenix store are embracing these styles as they rework their looks for the upcoming season. From slits added to dresses to pleats in skirts to give them more volume, this modern take on traditional silhouettes is turning heads. Colors are also changing up what would otherwise be the same styles: pastels transitioning to denim and then to bold hues reflective of one's individual personality and mood.

For styling these new looks, accessories play an important role in accentuating the outfit while giving it a unique touch. Over time, staples such as jewelry, headbands, and hair pieces can become updated with different shapes and materials, making them an ideal piece for any closet or collection. Statement bags as well as hats are also becoming popular for those looking for even more variety when styling these trends.

As we transition further into the season, it is clear that the possibilities for reworking old classics for the new year have become endless. With creative experimentation and the willingness to explore new trends with confidence, you can now stand out from the crowd with styles that are true reflections of yourself during the upcoming season. So get ready! By reworking items from your own collections, you can put together exciting new looks that embody who you are and start setting trends!

Reworked Items for a New Seasonal Look

As we continue to reimagine the classics for the 2023 fashion season, there is something to be said about breathing new life into wardrobe staples. Items from a previous season can be reworked with minimal effort and expense while still offering a stylish and up-to-date look. With a focus on using items that may have been overlooked in your current wardrobe, basics such as trousers, skirts, jeans, and t-shirts can be updated with statement pieces, prints, and textures that can infuse an entirely new vibe.

As we’ve seen today, reworking wardrobe items is both imaginative and cost-effective, while granting us the freedom to make bold choices with minimal environmental impact.

So if you’re looking for some creative ways to refresh your wardrobe this summer without having to break the bank or add to your collection of clothes, keep reading as we move on to explore the ways classic pieces can add some subtle sophistication and high fashion glamour to all manner of looks this city is sure to showcase.

Additions to Your Wardrobe with Classic Pieces

As we look to put a fresh spin on our wardrobe this season, adding classic pieces is one avenue. Frank & Eileen's classic pieces offer the perfect option for dressing up any outfit while making the most of minimal transitions from season to season. The beauty of a classic style is that it’s timeless and not dependent on any particular season. 

The beauty of adding classics to your wardrobe lies in their versatility and ability to make any item look stylish without ever going out of fashion. From sleek crossbody bags to statement blazers, modernizing your look with just a few carefully selected classic pieces is an easy way to keep your style up-to-date while staying true to yourself. As you explore these options, don’t forget that you can also build on these foundation looks by modernizing your temporary trend game with some modern pieces as well!

Modernizing Your Temporary Trend

The summer fashion trends of 2023 have seen us modernize our everyday wardrobe, taking classic pieces and giving them an edgier spin. This type of fashion may suit some shoppers who are more daring and open to experimenting with new silhouettes; however, others may feel uncomfortable making such drastic changes to their wardrobe. It is important to remember that there is no right or wrong way to approach fashion; rather, it is all based on what makes you feel most confident.

Sometimes the smartest fashion choice you can make is to resist the urge to buy something “new” just because it’s trending. Consider striking a balance between current trends and the pieces you know and love. Adapting existing garments or updating patterns or textures can modernize any look while still keeping it comfortable and familiar to you. Try our Mirth collection to make a modern statement. 

No matter what route you choose, creating a style that works best for you should be based first on comfort and second on confidence. As we move away from classic pieces into a new wave of fashion trends, consider blending past styles with present looks for an updated look worthy of the 2023 season! With accessories such as eye-catching bags, boldly patterned scarves, unique belts, and statement jewelry ahead of us this summer season, we can't help but feel inspired by all the stylish possibilities that await us at The Phoenix!

Accessories and Other Fashion Items

Accessorizing any look is key to achieving that high-end, on-trend vibe. Summer 2023 fashion will give you plenty of opportunities to play with the latest accessories. Think earthy stones, woven baskets, rattan bags, and headbands made from an array of fabrics. Subtle statement pieces, such as pearls strung along necklaces or wrap-around bracelets, can add a touch of shimmer without being too flashy. A single floral pin can take a basic dress and turn it into something striking and unique.

When modernizing your temporary trend outfits, consider practical items like canvas totes and colorful crossbody bags. Our trending Studio B+ars or Uashmama bags can be the perfect accessory to instantly upgrade even the simplest outfit. Structured backpacks are great options if you’re looking for something more functional and stylish at the same time. Even adding something as simple as sneakers or sandals can instantly transform any look.

Let's explore how to put these trendy components together and make them your own.

Putting It All Together

When it comes to putting together the perfect look for summer 2023, it is important to combine all fashion elements in an inspired way. Accessories, shoes, and other items should be used to express one's own style while still playing into current trends. When it comes to the debate of whether or not to be a trend follower or setter, the answer lies somewhere in between; combining classic pieces with modern silhouettes can yield timeless and fashionable looks that stand out from the crowd.

When it comes down to constructing any outfit, no matter when or where, confidence must be the top priority.
