TAP SPRING 2023’S FASHION TRENDS WITH OUR DESIGNERS
The harsh New York winter is coming to a close and we couldn’t be readier for sunshine, warm weather and longer days ahead. We’ll swap out our puffer coats for jackets and put away our sweaters to make space for T-shirts and blouses. Hello spring closet, we haven’t seen you in a while and it’s good to have you back. If you’re wondering what to wear, we’ve summarized this season’s key trends alongside a curation from our fashion PR showroom of DOORS NYC’s most cutting-edge emerging and independent designers from around the world. So get acquainted with our roundup of spring outfit ideas straight from the runway to your screen.
SHINE AND SEQUINS
Bring out the inner magpie in you with light-catching sequins and metallics, which amplified spring/summer 2023 runways from London to New York. The holiday season doesn’t have to come to an end because you can sparkle all year round.
Stylish and water-repellent in equal measure, this silver faux-leather trench coat by JULIA ALLERT is a glamorous choice for unpredictable weather conditions. We have also picked out a black sequinned dress by the Ukrainian brand, which can be dressed up or down depending on how you want to wear it.
OMELIA’s crystal shirt is encased in crystal netting for an opulent twist on a sartorial staple and this silver shoulder bag by New York streetwear label PRIVATE POLICY will instantly lift an all-black ensemble.
Cementing its status as a closet icon, the classic blazer continues to reign supreme. Tailored jackets are XXL and oversized with sharp, clean lines and generous proportions which complement the frame.
At the top of our wishlist is this oversized leather blazer by Ukrainian designer KULAKOVSKY, which features a removable belt to cinch the waist. With endless styling possibilities, you’ll be reaching for it time and time again, so make it your year-round investment piece.
You’ll be sure to cut a sharp profile in this navy wool-blend blazer by SUBSET, complete with padded shoulders and flattering double-breasted buttons. Alternatively, try a softer option for spring fashion in 2023, such as these neutral mauve-gray and taupe-beige blazers by Ukrainian brands LA MARINA and KRIS MARAN.
A new kind of uniform swept the runways for spring/summer 2023 and there’s no doubt that utility chic is a trend we can all get on board with. We saw flap pockets aplenty on jackets, skirts and cargo pants — utilitarian, but make it high fashion.
Crisp and clean-lined, KRIS MARAN’s bomber jacket is refined in all the right places, detailed with a point collar, slanted pockets and a cropped drawstring hem. To simultaneously tap the sporty Y2K trend, layer EXEMPLAR’s buckled puffer gilet over a tank top with baggy parachute pants.
Flap pockets and harness straps are key features for New York streetwear expert PRIVATE POLICY, so you can expect to be impressed by the brand’s cargo-style separates. We love the androgynous tone of the gray hoodie and black shorts featured below.
Speak volumes with spring 2023 fashion’s bubble-hem trend, which recalls the marshmallow-like skirts and dresses last seen in the early noughties. We can vouch that the puffed skirt is back, better and more sophisticated than ever. Talk about a comeback.
Cut from lightweight nylon shell, JUUN.J’s black bubble-hem skirt adds a directional twist for those who want to make a bold style statement. A subtle way to tap the trend, this brown Isabelle crop top by Californian label NUAJE NUAJE adds gentle shape to your looks without stealing the show.
For the boho romantic, PANN’s white mini dress and pink strapless top tick all the boxes. We can picture these being worn outside on a sunny spring day.
Tapping into the denim-centric Y2K trend, runways threw it back to the noughties, reworking jeans into bras, skirts, dresses and beyond. Take your style credentials to the next level by rocking a full denim-on-denim look.
For an easy day-to-day outfit, JULIA ALLERT’s denim maxi skirt comes with a wide sash to define the waist, while L.O.N.E.L.Y’s cropped tailored jacket fuses jeans with a sartorial staple.
ALICE K gets playful with this tie-dye denim mini skirt, featuring flattering ruching and a raw edge around the ruffled hem. Channel Y2K glamour in GURANDA’s blue skirt, which is shaped with a corset waist panel and decorated with gold studs
Lots of leather
It’s time to bring out the biker in you, because this spring we’re swapping out pretty pink dresses for leather jackets. Spring/summer 2023 runways were toughened up with studs, black leather and chunky boots, so this season’s hottest trend is best served with plenty of attitude.
On our radar is Ukrainian label KULAKOVSKY, who makes modern leather garments in various styles and colors from its family run atelier. You can expect classic pieces, such as this black leather trench coat below, and a vintage-style cargo bomber with distressing.
Try styling NOCTURNE’s brown faux-leather crop top with PODYH’s black pants for Y2K glamour with an edge.
