'Dark Mermaid' Is The Trend To Know Going Into 2023
BY ZOE NOLZ
The 'dark mermaid' aesthetic is on track to become one of the biggest fashion trends of 2023. While it still follows the theme of water and tails, the dark mermaid look is more provocative, dauntless, and dangerous than mermaids like Ariel or Aquamarine.
To achieve the look with your wardrobe, break out the sexy mermaid dresses in dark hues and netted fabrics. Dua Lipa has been rocking the look on social media with ensembles that include a Bikini Bottom-inspired netted dress and matching gloves, an outfit featuring a bra top, sleeves, and mermaid tail-esque bottoms covered, and a long, flattering black asymmetrical gown.
You can find dark mermaid-inspired makeup videos on TikTok, like the siren eye trend. Flaunting mermaid-inspired locks is another way to rock the trend, you can use a hair waver, like the Bed Head Wave Affair Hair Waver, available at Ulta Beauty for about $55.
