For a lot of us, the end of a year means taking time for reflection. We look back on old habits we want to break and new ones we plan to adopt. Nobody wants to start a new year with a lot of unnecessary baggage, and one of the best ways to start fresh in 2023 is to dig into your wardrobe, get rid of the pieces that are outdated, and make space for new fashions that will make you look and feel ready to charge into the new year in style.
Some of 2022’s trendiest styles, from skinny jeans to cut-outs, faux fur, and the head-to-toe hot pink of Barbiecore, are definitely on the way out. Fashion expert Megan Watkins, head stylist at SilkFred, suggests some of the styles to leave behind when you’re ready to hit the hottest clubs in downtown San Diego in 2023.
You can move those skinny jeans to the back of your closet. Fashion experts are predicting baggy, loose-fitting jeans will be making a huge comeback in 2023. This is part of a trend toward oversized clothes of all kinds, from extra-large shirts to oversized blazers. Expect flared bottoms and wide-leg styles to be all the rage. Watkins advises, “Choose either a mid-rise or low-rise waistline and a boyfriend or wide-leg fit to instantly bring your wardrobe into the current season.”
If you’re bored with basic V-necks, now’s the perfect time to modernize your look with cowl-neck styles. Watkins continues: “Necklines come and go every single season, but the one which you really need to leave behind is the V-neck, which doesn’t float anymore when it comes to stylish silhouettes. If you want to move with the times, opt for a cowl neck, which is a really flattering fit for cami tops and dresses.”
If you’re going for a bit of grunge with your look, biker boots may be your go-to item, but Watkins predicts next year, cowboy boots will replace them at the top of the style ladder. She says, “Whilst biker boots have been reigning supreme the past few winters, their rock chick aesthetic isn’t cutting it anymore and now looks outdated. Instead, go for knee-length cowboy boots in either leather or suede. These cool Western boots are making a comeback this season and should be your new go-to boot, which you can pair with miniskirts and oversized midi maxi dresses for an effortless look.”
Although strappy heels have been the ultimate trend for the past few years, Watkins expects mules to make a roaring comeback in 2023. “When it comes to heels, nowadays the lower the better, so it’s time to rethink your collection of strappy sandal high heels,” she says. “Mule heels have become the party season shoe of choice, and bonus points if you choose to rock a kitten heel or sculptured heel. A pair of mule heels will give you the understated glam for an evening look.”
Well-fitted blazers are staples in most wardrobes. They work for both a day at the office and a night on the town, but in 2023, it may be time to upgrade those tailored pieces. Watkins explains: “If there’s one thing we’ve learnt from SS23 catwalks, it’s that baggier is better. Ditch the structured look for something more trendy.”
This year, we’ll be swapping the tailored look for looser-fitting items, such as waistcoats and oversized blazers. “Oversized blazers look great with minimalist outfits and are fantastic for layering,” Watkins says. “If you’re still looking for a more fitted look, invest in a stylish waistcoat, which still gives you that structured, power dressing vibe.”
