The changing of the seasons from winter to spring is a most exciting time—especially sartorially. In with lighter layers, dresses, and a sense of freedom; out with heavy outerwear, knits, and boots. When it comes to the spring 2023 trends, there’s a lot to look forward to. As noted by Vogue Runway’s trend report, the collections reflected many moods: from soft and undone (read draped jersey, distressed fabrics, and other touchable textures) to utilitarian preparedness (think well-pocketed garments) and a streamlined minimalism (see smart tailoring and even smarter button-up shirting). Our editors have already begun to gravitate to a handful of these, eager to transition to the spring wardrobe.
Among these trends is a sense of practicality and an emphasis on a daily uniform. Two editors are bringing their maxiskirts and tailored vests into spring with a fresh perspective inspired by the shows, while others are looking for new ways to wear or repurpose those most cherished classics: denim or the white dress shirt, for example. Look to this shoppable spring 2023 trend guide for an inside look at what our editors are shopping now and most excited about.
I’m very excited for all of spring’s not-so-basic denim, like this maxiskirt from one of my favorite shows of the season, Altuzarra. —Willow Lindley, accessories and collaborations director
This spring I’m looking to lean into a pared-back approach to my wardrobe, taking inspiration from the neo-minimalism trend that dominated the 2023 runways at Khaite, The Row, and Peter Do, which emphasized chic tailoring and crisp white shirting. —Julie Tong, commerce director
Spring Is in the Air
This spring, I am excited to embrace the imperfect fashion seen on the runways of Jil Sander, Marni, Prada, and Dries van Noten. The frayed edges, crochet details, and romantic distressing exuded a nonchalance that feels like a breath of fresh air, especially after wearing structured trousers and outerwear all winter! —Mai Morsch, fashion editor
As I tend to mostly buy outerwear, pants, and shoes, I am always on the hunt for tops. What I’ve realized, however, is while I appreciate a lovely blouse or statement shirt, I am really a button-up shirt or plain T-shirt devotee. The transformed iterations of these classics and fresh ways to style simple shirting found in abundance in spring 2023 collections are all to my benefit. Luckily for me, I have Peter Do, Stella McCartney, and Bottega Veneta to look to for styling inspiration on how to reincorporate dress shirts with a sense of relevance for the spring season. And Tory Burch, Dries Van Noten, and Miu Miu have me wanting and wearing delicate layers of subdued color via long-sleeve or turtleneck tops with my trousers and jeans for the rest of winter. —Madeline Fass, market editor
I can’t wait to wear spring’s most seductively cool trend: slinky, draped dresses and skirts. If I could, I’d invest in Saint Laurent’s and Alaïa’s entire spring 2023 collections. But this Paris Georgia skirt and Norma Kamali dress are both just as dreamy as the runway pieces. —Alexis Bennett, commerce writer
I never in my life thought I would be a sheer-clothing kind of person (well, since graduating college). But the runways have convinced me to slowly get out of my comfort zone. I’d wear this polo shirt because it’s not the kind of top you’d expect to be sheer, which adds an interesting textural element to any of the preppy outfits already in my rotation. (Plus, it’s not that sheer.) —Sarah Spellings, fashion news editor
Floor Length for Days
Floor-grazing maxiskirts were at the spring 2023 shows at New York Fashion Week, with brands like Tibi and Altuzarra putting together some effortless looks paired with button-downs, knits, and slightly unbuttoned blazers. It’s the perfect spring uniform for someone like me who wants casual and simple outfits to easily throw together in the morning and wear with my sneakers. —Irene Kim, production and editorial coordinator, Vogue Runway
Late last year, I suddenly decided that my wardrobe was absolutely lacking a pair of red shoes, and I’ve been on the lookout ever since. Some great pieces have started to trickle in in the new year, but now I can’t decide what vibe to go for. Do I want something classic (Manolo Blahnik’s Carolyn kitten-heel slingback), something comfortable yet unhinged (Khaite’s Marcy shearling flat), or something less comfortable but absolutely, devastatingly glamorous (Alaïa’s Coeur mule)? The jury’s still out, but for sure, 2023 will be my year of the red shoe. —Laia Garcia-Furtado, senior fashion news editor
Gone are the days when I want to wear a micro bag that can only fit my lip gloss and driver’s license. I’m now all about enormous totes and the endless amount of things I can fit in them. —Naomi Elizée, market editor
The suit vest sparked a sartorial sensation over the summer, and the fad isn’t going anywhere in 2023 either. I specifically loved the pinstripe versions seen at the Coperni SS23 show. I plan on wearing this one from Favorite Daughter with a matching pant for the ultimate gray outfit. —Laura Jackson, commerce writer
One of my favorite trends from the spring 2023 season is the branded soccer tees that have been recurring in some of the men’s collections. There’s something slightly odd about a luxury-fashion soccer tee, and these even feel like a step forward from logomania to me—how else do you show your loyalty to a brand than by wearing their team tee? I’m not one to wear a logo across my chest, but these are funny enough that they feel ironic. I’m very down to play into the trend and show my team spirit, as long as the team is Martine Rose or Barragán. —José Criales-Unzueta, fashion news writer, Vogue Runway
New Reasons for Nightwear
Influenced by the sultry, bedroom-inspired silhouettes of Nensi Dojaka and Ludovic de Saint Sernin, I’m thinking of swapping out my crop tops and cutouts for lingerie-esque going-out looks this spring. Think a lot of sheer and lace! —Elise Taylor, senior living writer
