Fashion trends come and go but it is always important to stay on top of them, especially this fashion season.
Whilst everyone has their unique style, some individuals choose to follow the latest fashion trends.
Fashion runways are already showcasing daring looks that will surely rise in popularity this Spring.

DESIblitz brings you 10 of the upcoming Spring fashion trends to look out for.
Flower power is set to blossom in a big way this season!
Floral prints have been ruling the fashion scene since the dawn of time and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon with floral patterns and flower motifs making fashion statements.
This fashion trend was seen prominently throughout the Carolina Herrera Spring Ready-to-Wear collection with various flower-printed patterns adorning dresses within the collection.
Floral-printed dresses aren’t the only form of flower power that will rise in popularity this season with flowers taking a more three-dimensional role in the fashion world.
Celebrities like Zendaya are already rocking the flower power vibes, since posting a photograph on Instagram wearing a white Loewe dress with a 3D flower embellishment on the dress.
This trend will bring theatricality back into fashion with flowers emerging from clothing as well as being imprinted upon them.
Denim Maxi Skirts
Though denim mini skirts have ruled our style consciousness thus far, this season is all about the denim maxi skirt.
Paired with knee-high boots and a slinky turtleneck or blouse, the denim maxi skirt is bringing back elements of 90s fashion.
The denim maxi skirt offers an elongated and nostalgic 90s silhouette with an endless amount of styling opportunities from vintage to streetwear style.
This skirt is not only an everyday staple item but can be a perfect piece for an evening look.
Take Gigi Hadid for example who wore a denim and silk vintage Roberto Cavalli maxi skirt at Paris Fashion Week, paired with a cropped polo neck and leather jacket.
Sheer clothing in a layered way is the new trend taking over runways as many sheer garment looks were at the forefront of recent runway shows in London, New York, Paris, and Milan.
Well-known Italian fashion brand Miu Miu’s 2023 Spring runway featured several sheer transparent top and bottom sets and sheer overlay outfits that alluded to sexy yet simplistic looks.
The sheer layering trend can be soft and delicate but also bold and sexy when styled in different ways.
Bridgerton star Simone Ashley was seen rocking the sheer layering trend with an all-Fendi look on the cover of British Vogue.
The transparency of the sheer materials allows individuals to easily layer different fabrics underneath the clothing to create looks that are multifaceted and incorporate multiple pieces into one.
If you loved the cargo trouser comeback in 2022, then you will love the utilitarian-wear trend for Spring/Summer 2023.
Utilitarian fashion tends to be practical and functional since it draws inspiration from military uniforms and post-apocalyptic style.
Think of pockets everywhere, chunky belts, buckles, Carhartt jackets and cargo-wear and utilitarian wear will spring to mind.
This trend has been a fashion essential in the spring collections on the NYFW runway for brands like Valentino, Bottega, Chanel, Rejina Pyo, and Nensi Dojaka.
Model and Instagram influencer Chantel Jeffries was seen appreciating the utilitarian trend in the desert wearing Fashion Nova cargo trousers that had enough pockets to fit the entire contents of your bag.
Be sure to hop on this trend if practicality fits your style.
Fringe is making a comeback and not in a cowboy or boho chic sense.
Fashionistas will see fringe trending in full-on glam outfits, adorning sleeves, dress hems and even
Whilst fringe is mostly associated with boho-chic fashion, the revival of the trend will bring back those 1920s flapper girl vibes and be a party season staple.
TV personality and popular Indian actress, Malaika Arora posted a recent Instagram photo wearing a vibrant and layered fringe dress from fashion designer Naeem Khan.
The dramatic comeback of fringe was seen most predominantly in the Spring 2023 Bottega Veneta Ready-to-Wear collection which included a trio of vibrant, fringe, showstopper looks in the finale of the show.
Underwear as Outerwear
This season, less is more since outerwear has become optional with the trend of underwear becoming outerwear prevailing on runways.
The trend was seen gracing the Victoria Beckham runway with her Spring 2023 Ready-to-Wear collection which featured a look comprised simply of lace undergarments paired with a cobalt blue blazer.
Most spring runways this season feature some format of lingerie as fashion whether it is solely underwear being on display or layered with other eccentric pieces to create statement looks.
Celebrities and influencers have been quick to jump on this trend, with Umbrella Academy actress Ritu Arya gracing a recent photoshoot wearing a white bralette and pink blazer.
The focus of this trend is clearly on accentuating the body, paying close attention to the natural silhouettes of different body types.
Asymmetric hems are nothing new in the fashion world, however, this Spring/Summer season will see a rise in this otherwise timeless trend.
An asymmetric hemmed piece will make a funky fashion statement in everyone’s wardrobes and will easily elevate an otherwise simple look.
Asymmetric pieces can come in a plethora of styles from angled hems giving clothing a bold shape to a softer less exaggerated asymmetric hem composed of a ruffle or softer sweep of the hem.
For instance, Khushi Kapoor, who will make her debut in The Archies, recently posted on Instagram in one variation of an asymmetric look wearing a deep purple mini dress that looked simply show-stopping.
This fashion trend perfectly expresses the freedom one can have with fashion with innovative geometry breaking away from the rigidness of symmetry.
Serving a heavy dose of black leather, thick eyeliner and spiked metal embellishments is the gothic grunge trend of Spring/Summer 2023.
Fashion lovers may already be familiar with the goth and grunge aesthetics of the 90s, but this trend is back with a sexy, modern twist.
At the Spring runways of Paco Rabanne, Dior and Dolce & Gabbana, the gothic grunge aesthetics dominated their collections, with the colour black taking form in transparent and voluminous outfits.
Celebrities like Liza Koshy have also been spotted taking gothic grunge to the red carpet as Liza was snapped wearing a black, vintage lace dress at the 2023 Golden Globes awards.
This gothic grunge revival is sure to turn heads this spring with the modern goth vibes drawing inspiration from cult classics and trending shows like the Wednesday series.
Another 90s comeback making its way into 2023, is tube dresses with flowy silhouettes that are fitted at the bust and loose around the waist.
Although body-con dresses have been ruling the scene, it’s now time for tube dresses with a looser fitting to make their way to centre stage.
Tube dresses are back in a range of fabrics to express different styles from the sleek minimalistic effect of a satin tube dress to the slinky, casual appearance of jersey tube dresses.
A sheer tube dress was recently worn by Hailey Bieber as she posted a picture on Instagram wearing a sleek, sexy, sheer tube dress.
The flowy silhouettes of tube dresses give way to a bubble-like effect making them an easy-wear, comfortable and graceful style, perfect for spring and summer travels.
One trend at the forefront of the Spring and Summer season is the biker trend with biker jackets being the standout fashion piece of this trend.
Featured most predominantly in Stella McCartney’s Spring 2023 Ready-to-Wear collection, the biker trend includes edgy jackets, streetwear trousers and graphic prints.
Celebrities like SZA have posted on Instagram rocking the biker trend as she wears an oversized NY Jets leather jacket which is giving us major streetwear biker vibes.
‘Bikecore’ fashion offers elements of streetwear and gender-neutral style by encapsulating the daring, thrilling and adrenaline-fueled energy of the biker scene.
This fashion trend will be a definitive staple this Spring season, especially if you’re looking for a trend to show off a bit of attitude.
With older trends making a comeback, this season will see an extremely nostalgic fashion revival.
The fashion world has already seen a massive transformation and evolution since the stagnation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and clearly, it’s not close to stopping any time soon.
These new-old trends will be accelerated into the fashion world of 2023, with creativity and imagination at their highest point.
These fashion trends will be the standout Spring/Summer looks that you need in your wardrobe, so be sure to hop on the trend now.
