6 Summer 2023 Fashion Trends You'll Want To Beat The Heat In

With summer 2023 upon us, we are looking to fill our wardrobes with the latest and greatest fashion trends. This summer is shaping up to be one for the books in terms of fashion, with hot new trends trickling down from the runways. The trends for the upcoming season reflect two paths one could choose to take. "The spring/summer 2023 season was clearly a tale of two halves, proving pared-back elegance and sleek black styles can be just as high impact as the lustrous liquid shine pieces and standout floral moments," Net-a-Porter Market Director Libby Jane Page tells ELLE.

Some summer fashion trends reflect a more classic, designer look, while others evoke a colorful, fashion-forward style. No aesthetic goes untouched this summer. If you are looking to fill your closet this summer, look no further! We have curated six of the summer's hottest trends that are sure to turn heads.

Shining sheer details

Sheer, revealing fashion is essential for summer 2023. This trend is a direct result of the spring/summer 2023 runways, where we saw brands such as Chanel feature sheer pieces. Off the runway, celebrities and fashion lovers are taking on their own versions of the trend. Influencer, singer, and actor Addison Rae took to Instagram to show off her take on the sheer, beaded mini skirt.

Floral frenzy

Florals aren't finished trending once spring is over. This year, we expect florals to continue to trend through the summer months. Not only are we seeing floral patterns but also flower motifs. Rosette chokers, flower-shaped claw clips, and jewelry with flower charms are just as popular as the traditional floral pattern.

The quiet luxury look

Quiet luxury is defined as "clothing of the highest quality, but also clothing that has timelessness, is sophisticated and understated," director of the fashion and luxury MBA program at NYU's Stern School of Business Thomaï Serdari tells Insider. No logos or designer branding is needed to hop on the trend. Instead, the quality and silhouette of the garments should speak for themselves.

Cargo fashion

Y2K fashion proves it is going nowhere with the rise of cargo style for summer 2023. Whether it's cargo pants or even a pocketed cargo jacket, it is in style. The early 2000s look is all over our Instagram feeds, most often styles with cropped t-shirts and other Y2K accessories.

Low-rise pants

Love it or hate it, another controversial Y2K trend is back: low-rise pants. Low-rise pants are the preferred style for some, while others refuse to give up their high-waisted looks. Whether it's chinos, denim, or trousers, the low-rise style is back in action. The low-rise look often features boot-cut or baggier hems rather than skinny legs, which are a favorite with Gen-Z.

Shades of pink

Considering that Viva Magenta is the 2023 Pantone color of the year, it's no surprise that shades of pink are currently trending in the fashion world. We are seeing pink trending in a variety of outfit types, from sparkly Era's tour extravagance to casual, leisure looks. Instagram influencer @ginaamarie captions a post "in my polly pocket era" as she showcases a leisure look that includes pink Converse, a pink tank, and a pink floral claw clip.
