While plenty of trends emerged from the September runways for the upcoming year, there is a selection of micro-trends that are less overarching than the major trends. But don’t sleep on them. These slightly less obvious trends are almost like an insider secret. You’ll still see them carried through to retailers, celebrity looks, and influencers, but to anticipate them takes a little more research. You can leave that part to me!
I’ve nailed down seven key micro-trends from the S/S 23 season that are guaranteed to be prevalent this year. Some of these include statement textures like ruching, fringe, and paillettes, while others are accessory-focused like utilitarian bags and kitten-heel slingbacks. Although these trends began on the runways, they are also available at some of your favorite retailers such as Mango and H&M.
Below, I’ve forecasted the best upcoming micro-trends and the easy pieces you can pick up now to start wearing them.
