A new year means a new set of fashion trends. Like most trends, many aren’t new but are enjoying fresh popularity this year.
Over the past few years, fashion aesthetics have become about more than dressing a certain way. Instead, people have started to embrace the lifestyle behind the trends, whether that’s 80s punk or cottagcore.
Doing so isn’t a necessary part of enjoying a specific aesthetic. The best part about all these “cores” is that they allow people to dress however they want. No matter if you like pretty dresses or only black.
But what fashion aesthetics will be trendy in 2023? What styles are on the rise, and how can you wear them?
In this post, we’ve rounded up the top five aesthetics you’ll see everywhere this year. We’ve also included the clothes, colors, and accessories popular with each trend.
With the upcoming release of Disney’s live-action Little Mermaid this summer, mermaidcore has grown in popularity. As the name suggests, it’s based on mermaids and the fashion associated with them. Sirencore, mermaidcore’s mature sister, is also rising in popularity.
Blue, purple, and green
People are turning toward the dystopian after the chaos of the last few years. Utilitarian clothes, with their part military, part safari look are a popular way to style that. Many people also love the comfort and ease of utilitarian clothes.
Beige, brown, and green
If you’re a girly girl, this aesthetic is for you. It’s ultra-feminine, embracing the grace and beauty associated with ballet. But you can enjoy the trend and channel your inner ballerina even if you aren’t a dancer.
Don’t like standing out in a crowd? Try normcore. The point is to blend in as much as possible by choosing neutral colors, basic items, and non-branded apparel.
Plain tee shirts
Another trend inspired by an upcoming movie- Barbie starring Margot Robbie. It’s another hyper-feminine aesthetic but less soft and more bold than balletcore. Or try a variation on it, like 80s barbiecore.
Trying a new aesthetic is a fun way to switch up the way you create outfits. Enjoy experimenting with one of these fashion trends this year, allowing yourself to shine.
