With the likes of Paris Hilton and FKA twigs on the runway, this season’s fast-paced fashion weeks offered plenty of inspiration. Here are the most memorable outfits and moments from the New York, London and European shows.
Spring 2023 Fashion
EVERYTHING Among the many trends on the Spring 2023 runways, glittery mesh styles like these have also appeared.
The Best Street Style From Copenhagen Fashion Week 2023
“These mad SCIENTISTS are MISSING,” announced a veteran New York fashion editor as he boarded the plane home from Paris, referring to a line of stylish industry figures. Although many thought that the pandemic would slow down the fast pace of fashion in the long run, it did not. The Spring 2023 New York, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks were once again in full swing with shows, parties and clothes like never before. Exception: London, where many events were canceled due to World War II being mourned in the city. Death of Queen Elizabeth.
New York began with the extremely successful collaboration between Fendi and Marc Jacobs. Evoking the 1990s and 2000s, the brand’s acid-hued Winter Capsule show celebrated the 25th anniversary of Fendi’s Baguette bag (the original “Sex and the City”). Linda Evangelista made a rare appearance and joined the other mega-models who appeared to be behind glass. It was a tough act to follow. After the boring shows during the epidemic, the 2023 spring fashion season held many surprises and excitement. A parade of bubble bottoms and sparkly suits made sure that the worries of dressing at home disappeared from our eyes. Say hello to the bright spring 2023 fashion trends that are coming to the fore and we’ll be wearing them all in no time.
What’s more, knee-length skirts paired with hip-length tops created a wave of ’90s nostalgia. Her world was still dominated by transparent layers: mesh overlays at Erdem and wetsuits at Loewe. Of course, there were still standout spring textures in the mix, like Carolina Herrera and Ulla Johnson head lace. Discover – and buy! – the entire upcoming offer.
Women’s Spring/summer 2023 Fashion Show
There’s something sweet and sassy about a knee-length skirt. As you hang loosely crushed at the mid-legs and expose your knees, the modest skirt is polished enough for work, yet cool enough to wear. There is a lot of restraint in taste, which is especially refreshing after the reign of the micro minions.
Minimalists, good news: Your favorite neutral shades are updated. Coats, jackets, slip dresses and pants came down the runway in many bright hues. Heavy hitters like Fendi, Khaite and Altuzarra are betting on the trend, promising to grace magazine covers and red carpets in the coming months.
It has come full circle with the relaunch of Sex-sells through the seasons. This time in the right places, less about revealing dangerous body parts, but more about increasing the dimension of the appearance. We’ve seen knee-length paneled skirts (following Prada’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection) and mesh appliqués on Erdem and Armani dresses for added dimension.
A Running List Of 2010s Trends That Have Resurfaced So Far At New York Fashion Week
Next up, the spring 2023 fashion trend our editors can’t stop raving about: bubble hems. From balloon sleeves to bubble skirts and hemlines, round hem silhouettes shined at Ulla, Prada and Proenza to name a few. Worth noting: There are varying degrees of bubble bottoms, from skimpy (Stella McCartney’s purple number) to billowy (McQueen’s parachute skirt). No matter which side you’re on, you’re sure to steal the show at your next party.
Last but not least: lace. From Paco Rabanne’s silk charmeuse ensembles to head-to-toe Chanel, the trend is taking a simple trend and bringing it something more traditional and decorative. When it comes to tone, anything goes: stick to neutrals or go for color. Cerulean takes over the trend at Proenza, purple Jason Wu.
It took a while for us to warm up to Gen Z’s lace trend, but fashion’s powerhouses are releasing stylish iterations that we’re rooting for. Our favorite? Dion Lee’s version that gives a utilitarian twist to the corset and pairs it with cargo pants. The brand is largely known for its high-end crossover silhouette.

Wear it: Wear it with a minimalist midi skirt for non-corsets (see the Senior Fashion Editor’s version here), or for Y2K fans straight up with low-cut pants.
Speaking of cargo, pants, vests, and tops sprinkled with pockets have been popping up this season at Miu Miu, Sacai (right) and Tibi. However, the Fendi FF pocket cargo pants are reminiscent of the entire fashion collection, referring to the brand’s iconic baguette bag. We buy a pair of each color.
Wear it with: a pair of jeans if you wear a cargo jacket, or a cozy tie if you choose cargo pants.
