STYLE 1 – BLAZER WITH DENIM
This is a trend I recently jumped on board for and I think you should too! Pairing a blazer with a pair of denim jeans or shorts creates the perfect mix of dressy and casual in the same look. The blazer elevates the look and makes it more business appropriate, but the jeans keep it toned down and casual. To make this look dressier, wear a pair of heels, or to make it more casual, wear with a pair of white sneakers.
TREND TIPS: I would recommend wearing a blazer with jeans in the spring time or fall when the temperatures aren’t too hot. When temperatures are warmer, I would opt for the denim shorts. I’ve found that high waisted styles that accentuate the waist tend to look best for this style.
STYLE 2 – SHEER DOTTED SLEEVES
Sheer sleeves are such a fun trend to try! These swiss dot sleeves add such a fun and pretty detail to any look. The lightweight sleeves allow for breathability and airflow which makes these pieces easy to wear in warmer weather without getting too hot. There are a variety of sheer sleeve styles – plain sheer, large dots, etc. – but I like the small dot design. You can find sheer sleeves on both tops and dresses based on your preference.
TREND TIPS: Sheer sleeves are great to wear almost year round! With such easy airflow, it’s almost as if they aren’t even there. For spring and summer I love wearing a pretty sheer sleeve dress and for fall I’d pair a sheer sleeve top with a skirt or jeans and booties.
STYLE 3 – OFF SHOULDER DRESSES
I’m sure you’ve seen the off shoulder trend before, but have you tried it yet?! Off shoulder dresses are a quick and easy outfit if you’re in a hurry. Some styles can even be worn with the sleeves up on your shoulders, depending on the design. Of course, off shoulder styles should be worn with a strapless bra or with sticky covers. Simply pair the dress with heels and a crossbody bag and you’ve got an instant outfit.
TREND TIPS: I recommend off shoulder dresses in the spring and summer. Off shoulder styles tend to be most popular for spring before it gets too hot outside. But they can also allow for airflow in warmer months instead of wearing something form fitting. Opt for a dress with a slit, like this second one, for warmer weather.
I hope these 2023 fashion trends and styles inspired you for the new year! I love trying new trends because you never know when you’ll fall in love with one. Let me know your favorite new trend in the comments.
