Fall 2023 Clothing Trends
While we try to focus on classic styles that can carry you through many years without looking dated, an easy way to avoid “frumpy” is by incorporating seasonal trends into your wardrobe.

It helps refresh and freshen up your look – eliminating the risk of being “out of date” or looking “current”. Nobody wants that!
Figuring out what casual and chic trends are in style each season (that are also kid-friendly) can be time-consuming.
Instead, by using our list of friendly moves for each season, you can feel 100% informed and find out exactly what you need (or decide to avoid) on a grab-and-go trip at Target.
The Best Spring 2023 Fashion Trends
We’re here to make it easy for you to feel confident in what you wear, what you buy, and what you don’t buy.
These 23 current trends made the cut, and there are others we chose NOT to include either because they were 1) expensive, 2) not trendy/classy, 3) not supportive of mom life!
Try only the ones you like. Don’t buy something just because every other mom is wearing it.
Fashion Trends That Will Be Everywhere Come Spring 2023
For example, embroidered jeans have recently been the hot new trend. This would be a more expensive trend to add because jeans aren’t cheap! Also, the trend died out very quickly leaving many people with jeans that no longer feel very important.
Instead, it might be a better use of your money to wear an embroidered scarf or skip the trend altogether.

Make sure you follow the basic rules so you don’t look frumpy when you try a new move. These rules apply to any new style that comes along!
If you feel like you don’t have basic clothes to begin with, shopping trends will only hold you back. Make sure you have these basics first, which form the basis of every good outfit.
When you have a good foundation, it’s fun to add some moves to your style and add value to your wardrobe!

As Corina teaches in the Frumpy to Fabulous course on creating your existing wardrobe, your wardrobe should be mostly (70-80%) classic essentials.
While some of your essentials may have a trendy feel, they are still basics that will look good for years.
Trends can be added to your wardrobe like sprinkles to a frosted cupcake to add that extra fun look!

There are a lot of pink shades out there, but I see a lot of warmer tones like mauve and burgundy (waiting for this spring!).

There tends to be a bit of a love/hate relationship with this print, but we’ve been seeing it trend for several years now! It seems to be a little smaller this year than previous seasons, but still going strong!
Small, animal print can be a great way to add some interest to basic classic styles.
Exciting Style Trends Spotted At Fashion Week Spring 2023
Our 4th edition of Women’s Essential Style Guides uses a dark print scarf as one of the accessories and leopard print is a great choice! Same with print flats!
I don’t think flower has ever left our trend updates! It always comes back in one form or another.
In the last few seasons flowers tend to be on a smaller scale (few flowers!). You can find them in almost any type of pie!

You’ll see a wide variety of earth colors in many of our “special style” trends (see trends #7-#17 below).
Rib knit is just that. A soft woven fabric that has “ribs” or raised vertical stripes within the fabric texture.
Many tops, tees and basic dresses can be found in this outfit. They make a great base piece while the ribs add some texture!
Resort 2023 Trends To Know
For the second fall/winter season in a row, I can pretty much say that this is THE trendiest color.
We’ve noticed that the rust can vary depending on how orange or red it is, so if you know your color season and want to incorporate this trend, pay attention to the shade you’re looking for.
The current trending variation on this style is an oversized, button-down with release. Add a button down to your jeans and you’ll instantly add a touch of classic chic to your outfit!
Print & Pattern Trends Inspiration
This is what I mean by base layers: comfortable fitting layers like suits and t-shirts that are often layered with loose pieces like button downs or turtlenecks.
If you’re like me, you’re probably a little on the fence about this trend. But if you check out your favorite store, chances are you won’t be able to get away from the turtleneck or mock neck styles.
Good thing is if you live in a cold climate, you can’t go wrong with the extra layer!
Cruise Control: Resort 2023 Trends
Whether you’re sporty by nature or just love comfort and ease, you’ll love the sporty options you see in stores right now.
There are so many amazing styles and outfits of pullovers, sweatshirts and leggings that you’re sure to find something that matches your style.
A popular version of this trend is matching sets. Like tops and bottoms that are the same fabric, and when worn together, almost look like a romper or jumpsuit.

Think pieces like cargo-style pants, utility jackets (or jackets!), etc.
With the amount of coverage in your waist, high pants and jeans are definitely a trend.
Paper bag style waists are popular with their wide ties for pants or crops, slim elastic skirts, button front jeans etc. The options are almost endless!
Fall Fashion Trends That Will Still Be Stylish In 2023
I love this length especially on taller women, but even if you’re not tall or just want a shorter length this fall and winter, you won’t have to look too far.
Midi dresses and skirts (especially with layers or ruffles – see trend #16 below!) can be found in many stores this season!
TIP: It can be difficult to pair shoes with midi skirts without feeling cheesy. Here’s our guide on how to wear skirts and what shoes to wear with different lengths.
Fashion Trends That Are Out In 2022
Don’t worry, there are NO cracks coming out. But many other silhouettes are popular now, especially straight legs!
Don’t let me lose you here, because here’s a fact you have to face: puff sleeves are IN. SO THERE. You can’t get away from them.
These tops/dresses are a bit more complicated to wear in fall and winter because cardigans often look bulky over puffed sleeves. However, a thicker cardigan or jacket such as a denim jacket or moto jacket are still great options for layering in the colder months so you can style these pieces all year round.
Bridalwear Trends From Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2023
We’ve talked about this one in previous years, and it’s still going strong! Many dresses, tops and skirts have layers or wide ruffles.
TIP: Make sure you follow the rule of looser clothing with slimmer clothing. i.e. your roll top paired with a pair of skinny jeans or your layered dress paired with fitted denim or a moto jacket.
While we also see a lot of button-down style tops, this shirt jacket is definitely the most popular.
Fall 2022 & Winter 2023 Fashion Trends
It is literally exactly what it sounds like. A button-down shirt, which is often slightly thicker and looser so that it functions as a jacket.
This is a great fall layering piece and would also be a great complete piece for those warmer climates where you don’t need an actual jacket during the colder months of the year!
Stay with me here. I still cringe a little at the word bantopak. Phew. Yeah, I don’t know if I can do it.

BUT. While I’m not sure about the word itself, it’s hard to argue with the utility of a hands-free bag.
Whether you go with a true fannypack style attached to the waist or cross body, there are many options for different tastes! And it will keep all your things close to you without tying your hands.
My hair is long and I get tired of ponytails quickly, so hats allow me to keep my hair down and not emphasize how perfect the top of my hair looks on hair day 2 or 3 (or 4😆).

Since this is it, I’m tempted to get a felt hat in a good neutral
