9 Summer 2023 Fashion Trends You Need to Know About

Warm weather has arrived, bringing with it longer days and packed calendars. With so many opportunities to get dressed—vacations, weddings, you name it—knowing the summer 2023 fashion trends is essential. Of course, your personal style still reigns supreme, but if you’ve been dreaming of a newer, fresher wardrobe, now’s the perfect time to give it a go.

This season’s most popular trends range from the practical (massive pockets, airy fabrics) to the decadent and fun (mermaid-inspired sequins, rosettes of all shapes and sizes). And compared with spring’s trends, which lean more into denim and monochromatic styling, we like to think they’re just a touch more playful—perfect for breathing new life into your current closet. Whether you’re off to more summer weddings than you can count or you’ve finally worked up the courage to try sheer clothing, these summer 2023 fashion trends are the ones to know about.

Kristen Stewart, Doja Cat, Jenna Ortega—and now you.

Layer transparent pieces with opaque (but not heavy) ones to give any outfit an ethereal look.
