Denim-on-denim, AKA the Canadian tuxedo, is a spring classic, with silhouettes that made appearances on runways during Paris and New York spring/summer 2023 fashion weeks. Your denim staples don’t necessarily have to be the same color: a darker pant and a lighter shirt or denim jacket works well, too.

Gracing the runways of Brandon Maxwell, Carolina Herrera and Peter Do, long maxi skirts are the flattering and versatile staple for this season. It’s definitely a nod to the ’90s, and we’re kind of obsessed. Pair it with a simple gray or white tee, or an oversized sweater for the cooler days. Plus, it can be dressed up or down with your favorite sneakers or heels.
