Runway to Real Life: Catwalk Confidence Inspiring Everyday Fashion

With A-list designers unveiling their 2023 Fall/Winter collections, it is time to put together your dream wardrobe for the upcoming seasons. No matter if you prefer bold style choices or cozy seasonal garb, you can find something that ticks all the boxes on your personal fashion requirements. 

To help you make your selection from some of the best looks by the biggest names in fashion, here is an overview of the latest runway trends for 2023. 

Peplum is Making a Return

The peplum often has a love-hate relationship with fashion experts. But whether you adore it or not, there’s no denying that this 1930s–40s staple is making a big return in 2023. Similar to the top style trends of 2022, this nostalgic offering improves upon its original design, which narrows the waist and broadens the hips for a dramatic silhouette. Apart from Christopher Kane’s latest runway, the peplum was also featured in Rodarte’s marketing campaign for Spring/Summer 2024.

Feeling Fuzzy? Try Fluffy Materials 

Thanks to the summer blockbuster that was Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, pink and cute things were all the rage over the season. The likes of Gucci have taken this fuzzy feeling to another level with their latest runways. This includes fluffy jackets, dresses, and hoodies that feature materials such as faux fur. Whether you pair this look with women’s loafers or boots, there are high chances that you may have a fall or winter winner at hand. 

Vibrant Reds and Yellows Are Here

If you miss the brightness of the magnificent Valentino Pink that debuted in Fall/Winter 2022, you may have no complaints with the abundance of reds and yellows that were featured on various high-profile runways. These colors were used across different types of outfits that ranged from flowy dresses to fitted tops. This means that if you feel excited about putting on your red press-ons or yellow scarf for the holiday season, you can do so with the utmost confidence. 

Sculpted Bust Cups Add Some Drama

The Fall/Winter 2023 showcase did not hold back from bolder shows and featured sculpted bust cups on multiple runways. These bust cups were more revealing than the iconic Tom Ford metallic top that Zendaya wore in 2020, while also proving to be a breathtaking choice. If you have been following sustainable fashion tips since spring, you can also pair these striking pieces with upcycled coats. This creates a fall look that turns heads for all the right reasons. 

Sweater Dresses Make For the Perfect Fall Outfit

Sweater dresses add another contender for the perfect fall outfit choices from the Fall/Winter 2023 runways. These dresses were shown off by designers such as Max Mara and elevated the usually slouchy look that is usually associated with these dresses. If you have a knack for crafts, you can also look into a sweater dress knitting kit to make one from scratch. This can also give you bragging rights for creating your own runway outfit. 

Oversized Blazers Are Back Again

When you think of oversized blazers, you may instantly envision Lady Gaga’s oversized Marc Jacobs suit that the multihyphenate wore in 2018. Half a decade later, the oversized blazers have made a splashing return on the Fall/Winter 2023 runways. From pinstriped fabrics to vivid colors, you have a lot of options to choose from with these pieces. If you have been following tips for leveling up your style, you might want to get in on this trend before it fades away again. 

Turtlenecks: Add to Your Winter Collection

From Chris Evans’ cozy Knives Out style to the Succession cast’s multiple fashion statements, the turtleneck has been relevant in pop culture over the past few years. In turn, it was no surprise when the Fall/Winter 2023 runways revived this seasonal staple and added more flair to it with metallic embellishments. In case turtlenecks appeal to you, you can also pair yours up with options such as a personalized name brooch or an antique diamond pendant. 

After learning about these trends, you can take your time to incorporate them into your wardrobe. This can help you show off your trendy style everywhere you go.
