Five Trends That Were On Our Style Radar In 2023

The most coveted trends in 2023 comprised pantsuits, sequined bodycon dresses, velvet kurta, corset tops, bold cut-outs, and oversized jackets. Many such trends caught our attention, and here are five that we think were the most loved:

  • Painting the Town Pink with Barbiecore
  • Come on, Barbie! Let’s go party - and so she did! The first half of the year was dominated by ultra-feminine and chic Barbiecore style. Defined by its whimsical flair and playful tones, Barbiecore pays homage to the iconic Barbie doll. A striking example of this trend can be found in Ananya Pandey's attire, perfect for brunches, picnics, and dates. The Bollywood sensation has donned a classic Barbie-hot pink blouse paired with a figure-skimming skirt, featuring a see-through embroidered finish. She rounded off the look with pumps of the same shade to echo the vibrancy of the Barbie aesthetic.

  • The fishnet-inspired outfits were the highlight of the Paris Fashion Week this year. And when it comes to on-trend fashion, we should take cues from Khushi Kapoor, who is slaying the dress-up game. She wore a black, fishnet-style dress adorned with shimmery accents. The stars of her attire were the off-shoulder bow neckline and a high slit for a dash of drama. Khushi’s dress was perfectly choreographed to the rhythm of her curves.

    You can take cues from Ms. Kapoor’s outfit for cocktail parties and grand celebrations. Her spangled ensemble found its sole mate in embellished golden-hued pencil heels.
