The most covetable summer fashion trends for this year and how to wear them

2022 was the year of Y2K madness, and if there's an attitude that accompanied the aughts silhouettes that took over runways and feeds in the past year, it's that of being fun, sexy and hot. It is now officially 2023, and the energy still applies, especially in summer. This year, despite the push towards colour, loud prints, and mismatched dressing formulas (Portia, we're looking at you) we saw in 2022, we're predicting more of a move back to the classics. This is not to imply that beige and linen is back, but staple pieces that have always found a way to last will continue to endure, such as the white tank top and the ballet flat. Summer in Australia looks like pastels and earth tones, nostalgic silhouettes like minis and asymmetric cuts, simple layering and thangs that feel slightly more handmade. Below, are the summer fashion trends we're loving at the moment.

 

The white singlet

The humble white singlet has crept back into our wardrobes as a mainstay this past year, and, as usual, it won't be going anywhere this coming season. The ultimate elevated basic, designers are reinvigorating this staple with a fresh silhouette, incorporating layering and cutout details for a new take on the classic. While we're not logo girlies, the impact of the logo tank in the past year has been undeniable.

Here's where to shop the trend:

Fun belts

The classic buckle belt made a huge comeback in 2022, and riding on its coat tails were belts of the funner variety. Think beaded belts, belts with statement buckles, chain belts, scarves as belts etc, etc.

Ballet slippers

Unfortunately for those who are not interested in the ballet slipper trend, it doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon. Personally, we are huge fans of the sweet little satin slipper, so our favourites are below.

String bikinis

Swimwear trends certainly go through their phases, with different styles, colours and prints making their mark with each summer that passes. This season, swim is reverting back to an old classic, with the barely-there, string bikini coming through as one of the most popular styles. Zero tan lines, zero fuss – just how we like it.
