Trends come and go in fashion but knowing what’s in and what’s out can be hard to keep up with. Luckily, stylists always know and they’re sharing the clothes and accessories that are on their way out this year and what to wear in 2023 instead.
- Swap your oversized sunglasses for small, rectangular styles - Big, round sunnies are popular, but Katya Bychkova, style expert and founder of StyleSprinter.com, says they’re no longer in fashion. Instead, go for smaller, more rectangular frames, because she says, “The more your sunglasses look like you belong in “The Matrix,” the better.”
- Slim-fit blazers are being replaced by oversized cuts - Try an oversized blazer with defined shoulders instead of an unlined slim-fit one that doesn’t keep its shape.
- Peplum tops look better on the hanger - These might look good in the store, but fashion stylist Tara West says “they never translate as well when you get home.” Instead, she recommends a figure-flattering corset or bustier top paired with relaxed denim or trousers and an oversized blazer.
- Headbands are out, 90s-inspired clips are in - "Instead of romantic headbands of the past, go for edgy snap hair clips or bobby pins from the 1990s,"Katya suggests.
- Trade camo prints for olive-green pieces - West says camp print is on its way out and recommends replacing items with pieces in on-trend olive-green.
- Try a maxi slip dress instead of a smocked dress - Nap dresses with smocking are popular right now, but Katya says the style looks dated and advises opting for a trendy maxi slip dress instead.
- High-waisted pants are being ditched for mid- and low-rise - High-waisted jeans had a good run, but West says low- and mid-rise pants are back for winter 2022 and spring 2023.
- Neutral sweaters are in - Thin, boxy sweaters in statement prints had their moment, but according to Katya, oversized neutral knits are coming back.
- Skip the midi skirt and go mini - Skirts that hit below the knee and above the ankle have been a staple for a while, but West says micro miniskirts and dramatic maxi skirts are taking over.
- Denim-on-denim is on the way out - "We all love our denim, but the head-to-toe look is overpowering and can come across as a little cheap, even if it's the most premium designer," West explains. Instead pair patterns, like plaid, with jeans and denim jackets.
