The Spring 2023 Trends on Vogue Editors’ Shopping Lists

The Spring 2023 Trends on Vogue Editors’ Shopping Lists

The changing of the seasons from winter to spring is a most exciting time—especially sartorially. In with lighter layers, dresses, and a sense of freedom; out with heavy outerwear, knits, and boots. When it comes to the spring 2023 trends, there’s a lot to look forward to. As noted by Vogue Runway’s trend report, the collections reflected many moods: from soft and undone (read draped jersey, distressed fabrics, and other touchable textures) to utilitarian preparedness (think well-pocketed garments) and a streamlined minimalism (see smart tailoring and even smarter button-up shirting). Our editors have already begun to gravitate to a handful of these, eager to transition to the spring wardrobe. 

Among these trends are a sense of practicality and an emphasis on a daily uniform. Two editors are bringing their maxi skirts and tailored vests into spring with a fresh perspective inspired by the shows, while others are looking for new ways to wear or repurpose those most cherished classics: denim or the white dress shirt, for example. Look to this shoppable spring 2023 trend guide for an inside look at what our editors are shopping now and most excited about.

Perfectly Imperfect 

Prada printed satin midi skirt

I recently wore Prada’s satin midi skirt during New York Fashion Week, which debuted on the designer’s spring 2023 runway in Milan last fall. The style evokes a sense of “unfinishedness,” featuring an irregularly dyed print and a slit that is made to look like the skirt is torn. – Lisa Aiken, executive fashion director,

Interior Asa dyed line midi-skirt

Miu Miu raw-Eedges long cotton coat

Max Mara washed cotton skirt

Blazers Become Cinched 

Veronica Beard nipped-waist crepe blazer

When ultimate cool-girl Chloe Sevigny stepped out in Proenza Schouler’s Fall 2023 runway show during NYFW earlier this month, it only reconfirmed the cinched waist trend. I can’t stop thinking about it and am looking to emulate this chic office-ready look now for spring. – Julie Tong, commerce director

Musier Paris Kelsey leather biker jacket

A luxe piece of leather is simultaneously elegant and edgy. Inspired by the biker jackets seen on the spring runways, I’m gravitating toward this cropped style from Musier Paris. To match, Mango’s sleek leather midi skirt is a must-have in my wardrobe this season. Accessory-wise, toughened-up biker boots from & Other Stories and Prada’s Moon bag are at the top of my shopping list.– Laura Jackson, commerce writer

Bold Color Bottoms

High Sport kick stretch flared pants

As someone who tends to lean on a denim crutch most days, this Spring, I’m excited to try a few bold color options like what we saw on the runways of Bottega Veneta, Prada, and Dries Van Noten. These bold, cherry red pants from High Sport are my starting point: their vibrant hue is as immediately uplifting as it is unexpected. I look forward to pairing with whisper-thin henleys, crisp white shirts, and every shoe varietal—the cropped length really lends itself to each and every one.– Daisy Shaw-Ellis, jewelry director

Bright White Footwear

I’m excited to lighten up my shoe collection this spring with bright white mules and comfy loafers, inspired by Bottega Veneta, Jil Sander, Dries Van Noten, and more of the collections that used white footwear to ground their spring 2023 looks. – Alexis Bennett, commerce writer

Sculptural Statement Earrings 

Missoma molten baroque pearl earrings

For me, this spring will be all about the statement earring. I recently realized my jewelry box was seriously lacking. While I initially prioritized replenishing my assortment of everyday earrings and necklaces, I constantly kept gravitating toward a bold earring. Sculptural hoops, dangles, and gems are all fair game.– Kiana Murden, commerce beauty writer

New Neoclassical

Giambattista Valli sequin-trimmed boucle mini dress

I am always smitten with ladylike pieces, and few do that better than Giambattista Valli. For his spring collection, he sent out pieces down the runway which featured, yes, his signature bouclé tweeds but also pieces adorned with gold braided shoulder straps and gold piping. (Several other labels, from Pucci to Bevza, also embraced the same vibe.) The effect is one that feels Grecian but with a modern twist. Let’s call it the new, neoclassical. – Lilah Ramzi, commerce editor

This spring, I am excited to embrace the imperfect fashion seen on the runways of Jil Sander, Marni, Prada, and Dries van Noten. The frayed edges, crochet details, and romantic distressing exuded a nonchalance that feels like a breath of fresh air, especially after wearing structured trousers and outerwear all winter! —Mai Morsch, fashion editor

The Tailored Look

Totême belted cady blazer

This spring, I’m looking to lean into a pared-back approach to my wardrobe, taking inspiration from the neo-minimalism trend that dominated the 2023 runways at Khaite, The Row, and Peter Do, which emphasized chic tailoring and crisp white shirting. —Julie Tong, commerce director

Tip-Top Tops

A.W.A.K.E. MODE Orbit button-front shirt

As I tend to mostly buy outerwear, pants, and shoes, I am always on the hunt for tops. What I’ve realized, however, is while I appreciate a lovely blouse or statement shirt, I am really a button-up shirt or plain T-shirt devotee. The transformed iterations of these classics and fresh ways to style simple shirting found in abundance in spring 2023 collections are all to my benefit. Luckily for me, I have Peter Do, Stella McCartney, and Bottega Veneta to look to for styling inspiration on how to reincorporate dress shirts with a sense of relevance for the spring season. And Tory Burch, Dries Van Noten, and Miu Miu have me wanting and wearing delicate layers of subdued color via long-sleeve or turtleneck tops with my trousers and jeans for the rest of winter. —Madeline Fass, market editor

Draped Dressing

Paris Georgia draped maxi skirt

I can’t wait to wear spring’s most seductively cool trend: slinky, draped dresses and skirts. If I could, I’d invest in Saint Laurent’s and Alaïa’s entire spring 2023 collections. But this Paris Georgia skirt and Norma Kamali dress are both just as dreamy as the runway pieces. —Alexis Bennett, commerce writer

Sheer Layering 

Raey sheer wool-crepe rugby shirt

I never in my life thought I would be a sheer-clothing kind of person (well, since graduating college). But the runways have convinced me to slowly get out of my comfort zone. I’d wear this polo shirt because it’s not the kind of top you’d expect to be sheer, which adds an interesting textural element to any of the preppy outfits already in my rotation. (Plus, it’s not that sheer.) —Sarah Spellings, fashion news editor

Floor-grazing maxiskirts were at the spring 2023 shows at New York Fashion Week, with brands like Tibi and Altuzarra putting together some effortless looks paired with button-downs, knits, and slightly unbuttoned blazers. It’s the perfect spring uniform for someone like me who wants casual and simple outfits to easily throw together in the morning and wear with my sneakers. —Irene Kim, production and editorial coordinator, Vogue Runway

Manolo Blahnik Carolyne kitten-heel halter pumps

Late last year, I suddenly decided that my wardrobe was absolutely lacking a pair of red shoes, and I’ve been on the lookout ever since. Some great pieces have started to trickle in in the new year, but now I can’t decide what vibe to go for. Do I want something classic (Manolo Blahnik’s Carolyn kitten-heel slingback), something comfortable yet unhinged (Khaite’s Marcy shearling flat), or something less comfortable but absolutely, devastatingly glamorous (Alaïa’s Coeur mule)? The jury’s still out, but for sure, 2023 will be my year of the red shoe. —Laia Garcia-Furtado, senior fashion news editor

Pinstripe Tailoring 

Favorite Daughter Favorite vest

The suit vest sparked a sartorial sensation over the summer, and the fad isn’t going anywhere in 2023 either. I specifically loved the pinstripe versions seen at the Coperni SS23 show. I plan on wearing this one from Favorite Daughter with a matching pant for the ultimate gray outfit. —Laura Jackson, commerce writer

Influenced by the sultry, bedroom-inspired silhouettes of Nensi Dojaka and Ludovic de Saint Sernin, I’m thinking of swapping out my crop tops and cutouts for lingerie-esque going-out looks this spring. Think a lot of sheer and lace! —Elise Taylor, senior living writer
