Every year is the year of fashion but 2023 was the year of comfort and high fashion. Here’s a look at some of the trends from the previous year that swept our feet:

Last year, we saw a resurgence of the Y2K denim maxi skirt. It took over the streets as everyone from models like Bella Hadid to TikTok/Instagram influencers showed us how to style them as aesthetic outfits. It’s safe to say the denim maxi skirt ruled 2023.

Baggy Pants

You’ll agree with me that cargo pants and parachute pants were all the rage last year. These pants were not shapeless or low-rise like the ones in the Y2K era. They were tailored silhouettes with interesting pocket placements, designed with elevated fabrics like silk and organza, and colors that go beyond khaki and olive.

The Color Red

Remember the quote that says, “Less is more?” It’s the perfect description of this major 2024 fashion trend. We have luxury designers like Schiaparelli, Max Mara, and Bottega Veneta to thank for raising the bar with quiet luxury. And with celebrities like Beyonce and Rihanna jumping on them, expect to see more people embracing more neutral tones and well-tailored pieces without branded names or logos on them. In other words, just looking classy without being loud about it.

Side Part on Hair

The best part is this look isn’t exclusive to ladies as more men will rock some neat side part lines with a perfect fade underneath this year. It’s all about going with the flow.
