The change of seasons from winter to spring is the most exciting time – especially when it comes to tailoring. In with lighter layers, dresses and a sense of freedom; step out with heavy outerwear, knitwear and boots. When it comes to spring 2023 trends, there’s a lot to look forward to. As noted in Vogue Runway’s trend report, the collections reflected many moods: from soft and messy (read draped jersey, tattered fabrics and other tactile textures) to utilitarian preparedness (think clothes with a good pocket) and simplistic minimalism ( check out the smart tailoring and the even smarter button-down shirt). Our editors have already begun to gravitate to a few of these, eager to transition into the spring wardrobe.

Among these trends is a sense of practicality and an emphasis on the daily uniform. Two editors are bringing their maxi skirts and tailored vests into spring with a fresh runway-inspired perspective, while others are looking for new ways to wear or repurpose those best-loved classics: denim or a white shirt, for example. Check out this spring 2023 shoppable trend guide to find out what our editors are buying now and what they’re most excited about.

This spring I want to rely on a more modest approach to my wardrobe, taking inspiration from the neo-minimalism trend that dominated the catwalks of Khaite, The Row and Peter Do 2023, which emphasized chic cuts and clean white shirts. —Julie Tong, Store Manager

This spring I’m 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 distress exude a nonchalance that feels like a breath of fresh air, especially after wearing structured pants and outerwear all winter! — Mai Morsch, fashion editor

Tip-Top T-shirts

AWAKE MODE Orbit shirt with front buttons

As I mostly shop for outerwear, pants and shoes, I’m always on the lookout for tops. What I’ve come to realize, however, is that while I appreciate a nice blouse or statement shirt, I’m really a fan of a button-down shirt or a plain T-shirt. The transformed iterations of these classics and the fresh ways to style the simple shirts that abound in the Spring 2023 collections work in my favor. Lucky for me, I have Peter Do, Stella McCartney and Bottega Veneta to look to for styling inspiration on how to repurpose shirts with a sense of relevance for the spring season. And Tory Burch, Dries Van Noten and Miu Miu make me want and wear delicate layers of muted colors over long-sleeved tops or turtlenecks with trousers and jeans until the end of winter. —Madeline Fass, Market Editor

Draped garments

Paris Georgia Draped Maxi Skirt

I can’t wait to wear the most seductive cool trend of spring: tight, draped dresses and skirts. If I could, I’d invest in the entire Saint Laurent and Alaïa collections for Spring 2023. But this Paris Georgia skirt and Norma Kamali dress are just as dreamy as the runway pieces. — Alexis Bennett, Commercial Writer

Transparent layering

Raey sheer wool and crepe rugby shirt

Never in my life did I think I’d be a see-through-clothes person (well, since I graduated college). But the catwalks convinced me to slowly step out of my comfort zone. I’d wear this polo because it’s not a top you’d expect to see through, which adds an interesting element of texture to any dressy outfit already in my rotation. (Plus, it’s not that transparent.) —Sarah Spellings, fashion news editor

Raey split back denim skirt in organic cotton

Floor-length sweatshirt skirts were at the Spring 2023 shows at New York Fashion Week, with brands like Tibi and Altuzarra pulling together lightweight looks paired with button-ups, knits and slightly unbuttoned blazers. It’s the perfect spring uniform for someone like me who wants a casual and simple outfit that I can easily throw together in the morning and wear with sneakers. —Irene Kim, Production and Editorial Coordinator, Vogue Runway

Manolo Blahnik Carolyne low-heeled lounge shoes

At the end of last year, I suddenly decided that my closet was absolutely missing a pair of red shoes, and I’ve been on the hunt for them ever since. Some great pieces have started arriving in the new year, but right now I can’t decide which vibe to go for. Do I want something classic (Manolo Blahnik’s Carolyn kitten-heel slingback), something comfortable but unhinged (Khaite’s Marcy shearling flat) or something less comfortable but absolutely, devastatingly glamorous (Alaïa’s Coeur mules)? The jury is still out, but surely 2023 will be my year of red shoes. — Laia Garcia-Furtado, senior fashion news editor

Favorite daughter Favorite vest

The suit vest caused a tailoring sensation during the summer, and the fad is not going anywhere in 2023 either. I particularly liked the striped versions seen at the Coperni SS23 show. I plan to wear this one from Favorite Daughter with matching pants for the ultimate gray outfit. — Laura Jackson, author of commercial topics

Team spirit

Martine Rose Blue and White T-Shirt with Twisted Football Shirt

One of my favorite trends from the spring 2023 season is the branded football shirts that keep appearing in some men’s collections. There’s something a little quirky about a luxe fashion football shirt, and to me it even feels like a step up from logomania – how else do you show your loyalty to a brand other than by wearing their team shirt? I’m not one to wear a logo across my chest, but these are funny enough to seem ironic. I’m very inclined to play with the trend and show my team spirit, as long as the team is Martina Rosa or Barragán. — José Criales-Unzueta, fashion news writer, Vogue runway

Influenced by the sultry, bedroom-inspired silhouettes of Nancy Dojak and Ludovic de Saint Sernin, I’m thinking of trading in my crop tops and crop tops for underwear-style looks this spring. Think lots of sheer and lace! — Elise Taylor, Senior Living Writer
