Ashley Full, co-founder and stylist at AMOUR781, said loafers with soles will remain popular, especially in the spring. Style refers to thick, rubber soles.

Loafers with soles that were a favorite of the ‘It Girls’ this fall will also be a trend in the spring,’ she told Insider. “Your chunky loafers will be the perfect complement to the stylish tennis shorts that everyone has added to their wardrobe in 2022.”

The stylist also recommended adding a college-inspired cardigan to complete the look.

Shades of green are on the rise.

Full told Insider that she expects different shades of green this year, including ferns and moss.

“We’re going to see ferns and moss green this spring into pre-fall,” she said. “This color might be challenging for some, but you can embrace it through patterns or accessories.”

Transparent details, reminiscent of Y2K fashion, are not going anywhere.

Transparent handbags are an easy way to follow the trend.


Personal stylist Susan Padron expects Y2K trends, including see-through details, to stick to shoes, bags and clothing.

“Think clear plastic, but elevated and expensive,” she told Insider. “Brands like Mach & Mach are even releasing see-through lounges that can be worn to an event or as a statement piece with jeans.”

Sparkles are perfect for dressing up clothes.

Grace Thomas, founder and chief stylist of Builtgracefully, said that glitter will continue to enliven outfits in 2023.

“I think we’ve only seen the tip of the spear on this trend, and the holiday season is always a time for glitter and glitz,” she said, adding: “Embellished button-up cardigans, bejeweled heels and diamond studded jeans…like details just are some of the trends we will see come to life.”

Cargo pockets are back in style.

Cargo pockets are functional and modern this year.


According to Lana Blanc, New York stylist and founder of The Blanc House, cargo pockets will make a comeback this year.

“We saw this trend gain momentum (with cargo pants) in 2022, but it’s coming in a big way in 2023,” she said. “Oversized pockets were seen on nearly every runway for Spring/Summer 2023, including but not limited to Miu Miu, Fendi, Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Marant, Versace and Brunello Cucinelli.”

The stylist said we can expect cargo pockets on everything from pants and shorts to skirts and coats.

Faux leather leggings are sure to be a hit.

“Faux leather leggings have gone viral, and this trend has stood out as one of the biggest of the season,” she said, adding, “It gives our beloved black leggings an upgrade, while adding a touch of edginess to our outfits. Plus, they go with everything.”

She suggested styling with thick sweaters and classic sneakers.
