Ashley Full, cofounder and stylist at AMOUR781, said lug-sole loafers will remain popular, especially in the spring. The style refers to chunky, rubber soles.

“The lug-sole loafers that were a favorite of ‘It Girls’ this fall will also continue to be a trend in spring,” she told Insider. “Your chunky loafer will be the perfect complement to the preppy tennis miniskirts that everyone added to their wardrobe in 2022.”

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

Shades of green are on the rise.

Full told Insider she expects to see varying shades of green, including fern and moss, this year.

“We’ll see fern and moss green this spring into pre-fall,” she said. “This color might present a challenge for some, but you can embrace it through patterns or accessories.”

Transparent details, reminiscent of Y2K fashion, aren’t going anywhere.

Personal stylist Susan Padron expects Y2K trends, including transparent details, to stick around for shoes, bags, and clothes.

“Think clear plastic but elevated and expensive,” she told Insider. “Brands like Mach & Mach are even putting out clear pumps to be worn to an event or as a statement with jeans.”

Sparkles are perfect for dressing up outfits.

Grace Thomas, founder and lead stylist of Builtgracefully, said sparkles will continue to bring outfits to life in 2023.

“I think we’ve only seen the tip of the spear on this trend, with the holiday season always a time for sequins and sparkle,” she said, adding: “Sweaters with embellished buttons, heels with jewels, and jeans with diamonds- like details are just some of the trends we’ll see come to life.”

Cargo pockets are coming back in style.

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

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

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

Faux-leather leggings are sure to be a hit.

Jackie Condura, personal stylist and fashion blogger, told Insider that faux-leather leggings will continue to hit this year.

“Faux-leather leggings have gone viral, and this trend has stuck 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 them with chunky sweaters and classic sneakers.

Fashion and wardrobe stylist Jasie Style said reimagined menswear is shaking up the workwear segment of fashion.

“Get ready for body-positive, more conservative menswear-inspired fashion,” she said, adding: “Now is the perfect time to elevate our wardrobe with timeless pieces that will last you for future seasons. My favorites include leather wide-leg trousers and a sweater vest for workwear or the weekend.”
