As the weather warms up and the days grow longer, it’s time to refresh your spring wardrobe for 2023 with easy-to-wear essentials in natural, breathable materials and relaxed styles.
You might also look to introduce contemporary and well-crafted coordinates that add versatility and casual style to special events, family gatherings and long lunches spent underneath the sun.
To help you expand your seasonal range with both practical and on-trend looks, we’ve taken a look at spring trends already on the rise for this year. Plus, with direction from Nicole Adolphe, The Iconic’s head of style, we share some tips on how to best style your outfits for the season.
Here are the best spring fashion trends for 2023 and where to shop them.
Stripes & Lightweight Knits
“Perfect for transeasonal dressing and adding a nice top to a pair of jeans, the knit top is a trending separate. Look for open-hole knit or textured knits. Even better if you can find a stripe knit top,” said Nicole.

“Look for dresses that cinch in at the waistline and fall to a floaty hem, with soft dropped waists and gathered details for extra points. A white dress with a subtle fit-and-flare shape will see you through every spring occasion.”

Soft Tailoring & Matching sets
“Lightweight blazer and pant combos in non-traditional suiting colours like lemon, pale blue and neutrals that are suitable for workwear, as well as casual outings, are ideal new additions for spring. Wear with a pump heel for work or a sneaker or slide for running errands. The silk or linen printed matching set is also a big one and a quick outfit choice for the busy woman.”

“Alongside the soft tailoring, we are also seeing shirting coming through, whether that be a shirt dress or a button-up shirt worn with pants, shorts or jeans. Shirts can also be worn open with a t-shirt or singlet layered underneath for a more casual feel,” says Nicole.
