This time of year is always an exciting time. The transition from skimpy summer clothes to cozy sweaters and boots is about to begin. I don’t know about you, but I’m always ready for that change. Fall Winter 2023 trends are flooding our stores by now, so the styles I chose for this post are styles that stand out above the rest, have a fresh and modern feel, are popular styles I can’t wait to try, and most importantly, the following fall winter 2023 fashion trends are extremely wearable.

There has been a major shift in denim, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little nervous about it. I’ve been over skinny jeans for a while now, but that doesn’t mean I’ve found a new style to replace them. Denim looks significantly different than it has in the past, and finding a replacement may be more challenging than it seems. In fact, covering the new styles of denim is a post all on its own, so I’ll keep it brief for now. In the upcoming months, take note of the significant changes in denim and, above all, try a new style. Fall winter 2023 fashion trends include these styles of denim: wide leg, high rise (thank god, a sigh of relief), low rise (eeeek), straight leg, boyfriend, utilitarian, and baggy.
One of the biggest fall winter 2023 fashion trends is leather. It is nothing new for leather pieces to emerge in the Fall because of the cooler weather. In fact, we typically see leather jackets, a few skirts, and some pants, but this year, leather is taking a new form, called anything and everything. It’s leather from head to toe. Leather, leather, and more vegan leather. Hats, skirts, shackets, corset tops, and dresses. Every line has a leather or vleather pieces. Imagine this, you’re at The Gap, shopping for jeans, and the next thing you know, you’re in the dressing room with a pair of straight-leg vegan leather pants and a leather shacket. Yes, this happens, but I said The Gap is not a high-fashion boutique. My point is leather is so popular it’s infiltrating the stores that supply us with our everyday staples.
With all the leather floating about, I think it’s crucial to talk about vegan leather. I haven’t advocated for vegan leather in the past because I assumed that if leather goods were so prevalent in the market, as a consumer, I wasn’t doing anything wrong by possessing these goods. With the growing popularity of v leather, I did a little research and have had a change in attitude. Now, I see vegan leather as an innovative attempt to lessen animal cruelty and unnecessary slaughter for leather goods. Regardless of my stance on the issue, I couldn’t fathom disagreeing with the previous statement and wouldn’t be caught dead protesting for the opposition. Here are a few facts about vegan leather that are fascinating to me.
According to PETA, vegan leather is
Vegan leather is often made from polyurethane, a polymer that can be made to order for any designer’s whim. It can also be made from innovative and sustainable materials such as pineapple leaves, cork, apple peels, other fruit waste, and recycled plastic and used to create products that put animal skins to shame.
For example, PETA Business Friend Desserto’s vegan leather is stylish, sustainable, and made of cactus. Yes, you read that correctly! Desserto makes beautiful vegan leather out of cactus. It’s good for the planet, good for animals, and good for your soul.PETA
They continue by saying, “Not only does vegan leather make you look good, it also makes you feel good because it’s cruelty-free. More than a billion cows, pigs, goats, sheep, alligators, ostriches, kangaroos, and even dogs and cats are cruelly slaughtered for their skinsevery year. The tails and horns of many of these animals are cut off without painkillers, and some are even skinned and cut apart while still conscious. By contrast, vegan leather offers a killer look without any killing.”
That was enough for me. No one had to twist my arm to get me on board; I’m pretty much sold. So, here’s to leather minus the cruelty. Cheers
Despite their reputation for being quite casual, the white tank got a status boost when one little designer sent their 7-foot beauties down the runway in not-so-basic basics. The models filed on the stage wearing white tanks with a familiar triangle logo, instantly transforming a basic into an “it” piece. These once called “basics” are now must-have fall winter 2023 fashion trends. Inspired by Prada, The Row, Bottega Veneta, and more, your average staples play a significant role in much more elegant looks.
What is a bomber jacket? According to dapperconfidential.com, a bomber jacket
By design, a shorter, waist-hitting silhouette defines a bomber jacket, ending with a knit or other gathered waistband. This key attribute is joined by a zip front, two to four pockets, knit cuffs, and a fold-down or knit collar sitting flush with the shoulders.dapperconfidential.com
Bomber Jackets go back to World War I, a period when airplanes were used for fighting but didn’t feature enclosed cockpits. Therefore the pilots needed an extra layer for warmth.
Have you ever felt like your look was stale and needed a new style to make you feel like you are doing something different? Something fresh? Bomber jackets are a fresh style to me. Bomber jackets (let me say that one more time, bomber jackets) are a style I don’t wear that often. Where have I been, you ask? I have no clue. Considering a baseball tee was my version of dressing “vintage” for many years, Im surprised I dont have this style jacket. This is new turf for me.
As I get to know this fall winter 2023 fashion trend, Im liking these jackets more and more. They are the perfect example of how one style can be versatile—teetering between ultra casual and even dressy, depending on their fabric and hardware. When constructed of corduroy, or a more casual material, they are great with joggers, denim, and tees. On the other hand, light silks or fur can elevate a bomber to dressy status. In other words, these bombers are quite diverse. Especially since they are made out of every fabric ever made.
Equestrian-inspired fashion No one says you have to ride a horse to dress like one (a rider, not a horse). Equestrian style is one of the predominant fall winter 2023 fashion trends and this style is growing in popularity from multiple directions. Firstly, you have Dark Academia (preppy meets goth). Lastly, basics are hot this season. Basics that are affiliated with equestrian style like fitted leggings, stirrup pants, riding pants, trouser-style bottoms, and plaids, which usually come onto the scene during the cooler months. In short, many fads are bringing this preppy style to the surface this Fall. Keep your eye out for riding pants, elbow patches, riding boots with leggings, tweed jackets, a variety of plaids, and leather trimmings.
My best friend was the first to introduce me to the Ysl 2022 Fashion Show, and it has been burned in my brain ever since. I’ve watched it 100 times and get chills every time I see it. The music, The Eiffel Tower… I could go on and on about how many things this show did right, but I will keep it relevant and short. When I think of high fashion, YSL did it right. The silhouettes of flowing maxi dresses and tailored jackets are forever burned in my brain. I’ve been waiting for the time to come, and I believe Fall is that time, for us to shine in our elegant maxi dresses. I’ll let the runway speak for itself.
Here are a few standout maxi dresses for Fall and Winter
Sheers: All you need to do is take a quick look at the sheer pieces I chose for this section, and you’ll realize why this look is of my favorite fall winter 2023 fashion trends. Sheer apparel is elegant, feminine, and very sexy. Some pieces of clothing whisper, “I’m here,” whereas sheer garments ring a five-alarm siren, giving any passerby a small glimpse of everything they are missing. There is an appropriate time and place for sheer clunsureut when you wear them, everyone will notice. If you’re not sure how to incorporate sheer fabric or a more dramatic look, you into your wardrobe, start with a simple sheer top or dress. For a more dramatic look, you can also try layering sheer clothing, for instance a tank or cami dress.
Trench Coats: They are older than any of us reading this blog. They are classic pieces that hint at refinement and class to any outfit. This jacket is very tailored therefore tends to pull any outfit together, giving off a polished appearance. In conclusion, If you seek a new staple for your wardrobe, this is a great piece to invest in. Giving your look years of polished sophistication therefore giving you years of sophistication too.
Loafers are getting some time in the spotlight this year. Earlier this year, in 2022, loafers seemed to be the dominant new shoe trend, but it seems as though classic loafers are making quite the comeback for the cooler months. Loafers pair with denim, cuffed, for an extra preppy look. They look really cute with knee socks or ankle socks. Lastly, a favorite look of mine is loafers with very preppy pants. Can you guess the look yet? To be clear, I’m going to try a loafer with stirrup pants. The stirrup pants are very trendy right now. In addition to the stirrup, any outfit paired with a loafer seems to get a boost of refinement, making that a winning combination.
There are so many new styles emerging for the FALL and Winter months. This post just scratched the surface, but these are the most relevant wearable trends.
Let me know what you look forward to wearing this FALL and, more importantly, is there a look I missed. Let me know!
Thanks for reading!!!! XOXO
