Statement Maxi Skirts
Sure, maxi skirts aren’t exactly a new trend, but this season, they’re getting a bold update. These statement-making skirts were seen on the runways of Valentino, Jil Sander, Brandon Maxwell and Acne Studios and are arguably one of the most popular trends this season. Whether you opt for a version with all the bells and whistles (think hems, ruffles, sparkles and more) à la Alexander McQueen, a more simplified silhouette in a bold, metallic hue, as seen at Acne Studios, or a bold printed option like the ones seen at GANNI, this trend is the perfect way to add some drama to your spring wardrobe.
This spring, it’s all about putting your best foot forward—literally. Colourful footwear was all over the runway – from GANNI’s teal cowboy boots to Fendi’s pastel platforms. They’re a great way to add a pop of colour to neutral ‘fit or to make a fun statement when paired with a monochromatic ensemble in the same hue. Looking to ease into the trend? Give your classic white sneakers a fun update by trying a pair with pops of colour, as seen at Golden Goose.
Looking to add some shine to your wardrobe? Try incorporating some metallic pieces into your outfits. From statement jewelry to metallic skirts and dresses, the options are endless. For a subtle take, start off with a metallic handbag, which you can find at MCM and Alexander McQueen, or a spring sandal with some metallic accents, as seen at Furla. If you want to really embrace “metallica”, go for more statement pieces, like the red metallic jeans seen at Ganni or the silver sprayed leather jacket seen at Acne Studios.
For those tired of microbags, this trend’s for you. Enter the re-emergence of the supersized tote: large enough to fit all your daily needs and bold enough to make a real fashion statement. A subtly patterned version in a classic hue, as seen at Furla, is great for the office, while a straw shopper, like the Fendi Sunshine is perfect for weekend outings. And for those with logomania, you can’t go wrong with a classic tote from MCM.
The oversized blazer trend is still going strong for spring 2023, and for good reason. It’ s a versatile piece that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. For a fresh take on the trend, opt for an oversized blazer with interesting accents, like jeweled embellishments as seen at Alexander McQueen or a deconstructed version à la Acne Studios. Or take a cue from GANNI and try a corduroy version in a bold hue with shorter sleeves.
Though this spring’s fashion trends are all about making a statement, there are plenty of ways to incorporate these trends in a way that stays true to your personal style while still adding some excitement to your wardrobe. So go ahead and experiment – fashion is meant to be fun, after all!
