    Trending Accessories

    No summer ensemble is complete without the perfect accessory, and this season’s hottest picks take inspiration from big moments in pop culture. “Mermaidcore,” inspired by the live-action The Little Mermaid, is making waves this season, with pearl accents, sequin handbags and shell-shaped jewelry dominating the runways. Seventies-style accessories, particularly sunglasses, are also having a moment thanks to Daisy Jones & the Six. And, of course, we can’t forget about Barbiecore pink, a nod to the much-anticipated Barbie movie coming out this summer.

    Denim Daze

    It’s no secret the fashion world has an unwavering obsession with denim. You can expect the fabric to be seen season after season, just in different shapes and silhouettes. Denim maxi skirts are still the fashion It-girl’s fave and are the perfect piece to dress up or down this summer. The runways also saw plenty of baggy, utilitarian cargo jeans reminiscent of the ones worn in the ‘90s. And if you’re looking for fresh ways to incorporate denim into your wardrobe, try adding denim accessories, like a jean handbag or denim slides.

    Can’t choose between the micro and maxi trends? Do both with asymmetrical hems! The summer 2023 runways saw plenty of angular hemlines, whether in the form of a dramatic leg slit or a subtly angled summer dress. And remember – asymmetrical hems aren’t just limited to skirts and dresses – for added interest, try an asymmetric fitted shirt.

    Footwear is one of the easiest ways to transition your wardrobe and make for a great starting point to build your summer outfit. The cowboy boot trend is still going strong, as are ballerina flats and sporty sneakers. We’re also seeing the resurgence of wedge sandals and classic Mary Janes. But perhaps the biggest trend is puff-ified versions of classic silhouettes: think padded loafers, puffy slides and blown-up Nappa leather mules.

    For beauty enthusiasts, summer is also a great time to test out new makeup looks. Trending this season is “cloud skin” aka makeup with a soft matte finish that looks breathable and humidity proof. The look can be achieved with a mattifying primer paired with your go-to dewy foundation or tinted moisturizer to create a shine-free complexion with natural radiance. Bold blush and lips are also a must for summer 2023, with extra pops of colour seen on the faces of models and celebrities alike. And of course, a sunkissed look will always be a summer fave and can be achieved with a great bronzer. Just don’t forget the SPF!
