Thanks to the forward-looking nature of the fashion industry, each season gives us a glimpse of what’s to come in the style stakes. And while we don’t subscribe to the idea that you have to ditch old pieces to make way for new “on-trend” styles, we always love to see how designers, both established and up-and-coming, look. Sometimes it’s a very subtle change: a stripped-down girth or a padded image, other times it’s a resurgence of an archive or, occasionally, a new approach that’s never been seen before.
So allow us to present to you eight pieces that are ready for cult status in 2023. From ’00s motocross jackets and ’90s maxi dresses, to oversized denim and cargo separates, we’ve sourced the key pieces you’ve come to expect. Look everywhere. And remember, when checking out new styles, consider “shopping” your own wardrobe and iterations of your already loved ones (we’ve included some options below). Bring on 2023.
