First and foremost, fashion should be fun. It should not be intimidating or take punches at your confidence. When your closet is filled with items that you love and were carefully selected, getting dressed makes you happy, excited, and doesn’t take much effort. Part of being carefree with fashion is to take a look at trends and see how they fit into your lifestyle and aesthetic.
Aquamarine is getting some attention
As we move into the new year with gusto, we can expect to see a continuation of the bright, bold colors that have been popular in recent seasons. In particular, aquamarine is set to have a moment. Designer and founder of Donna Leah Designs, Donna Leah, loves this bold hue. It’s a constant reminder of Miami, the city where her studio is based. “I’m inspired by nature. The warm gold and oranges of the sunrise and sunset. I also love the color blue of the ocean that is such a big part of living in Miami. I’m embracing aquamarine in 2023 and likely beyond,” she says. This color will be a staple into a variety of clothing items, from evening wear to chic casual looks.
Quiet luxury looks
Logos had their moment and for those fashion trendsetters, the future is logo free. Think dresses and more sophisticated casual looks that say luxury based on design and fabrics. For Donna Leah Designs, luxury is in the fabrics that she selects. Each has something unique as the individual that wears it. Whether it’s special handiwork, beading, or a pattern that is vibrant. One just has to look at the piece to know that it’s something very special.
Metallics, more metallics!
There is no arguing that metallics give instant chic. It’s one of the easiest ways to elevate an outfit and take if from blah to beautiful. At Donna Leah Designs, this is done with fabrics that shimmer and shine. For 2023, expect to see a lot of metallic fabrics, as well as pieces that feature beading, sequins, and other embellishments. These fabrics will add a touch of glamour to any outfit and are perfect for dressier occasions.
Sequins are always stylish
When we think of sequins, it’s all about getting dressed up. Evening gowns are also expected to be a big trend in 2023. These elegant, floor-length dresses will be perfect for formal events like black-tie galas and red carpet events. Look for styles that feature luxurious fabrics like silk and satin, as well as intricate details like beaded bodices and lace overlays. It just so happens that these are not only trending, but a staple for designer Donna Leah.
Overall, 2023 is shaping up to be a year of bold and beautiful fashion. Whether you’re dressing up for a special occasion or just running errands, there are plenty of ways to make a statement with your clothing choices. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new trends and styles and remember to always have fun with fashion. “Even if it’s about selecting one trends and going for it. Do it fearlessly!” says Donna Leah.
