Earlier this year, on the heels of the fall/winter 2023 runway collections, we made some predictions about where fashion was headed for the second half of 2023. Some things were clear. The buzzword on the front row at fashion month was wearability, a word that emerged as one of the key themes of the season. Wearability was referenced countless times as showgoers witnessed the rise of luxurious, elevated, and incredibly wearable pieces on the runways. Early on, fiery red established itself as the color of the season, and it only became more apparent throughout the collections just how dominant the color would be come fall. Another key trend emerged late in the season—corporate dress codes—as boxy suiting, pinstripes, sharply pointed pumps, and attaché bags permeated designer collections.
As the fall/winter collections arrive in stores, we’re seeing a clearer direction for how fashion trends from the runway will impact our shopping habits this season, from the silhouette that is taking over to the key shoes to own to the new approach to accessories we will see on the fashion set and more. Ahead, read our fall/winter 2023 trend shopping guide and shop our edit of the must-have pieces.
