Femininity as an aesthetic can be a very powerful tool when it comes to fashion. It exhibits an elegant allure that is mesmerizing and looks absolutely chic and striking. One of the elements that we find the most fun to play with in terms of styling is dresses. The array of designs and silhouettes gives us endless possibilities to express our personalities, moods, etc. It’s also important that the dresses you pick flatter your body type, which could be tricky. But once you get the hang of the silhouette that flatters your body, you are sure to win in the dress-up game!
As a layman, the array of dresses are numerous, ranging from different silhouettes, and length to types, such as summer dresses, holiday dresses, work dresses, party dresses, etc. All of this is also mainly influenced by the trend, for example, when Miley Cyrus released her single wearing the gold dress, we saw that many of the masses started leaning towards a more metallic palette in their fashion. Gen Z is all about embracing your most authentic self and expressing their personality through their fashion choices. And are also often inspired by current events. All of this brings us down to believing that the future of fashion is quite elaborate and all things fun with Gen Z being so energized at all times. The exaggeration and energy have been beautifully shown in the SS23 runways with also the right mix of classic, ageless styles.
The runways for this spring and summer season have been all about various cut-outs, floral, pastel dresses, especially maxi dresses have made quite a comeback. The forever favorite slip dress is seen with embellishments and gorgeous embroidery work. We also see a lot of exaggerated silhouette dresses with puffer sleeves, ruffles, wrap dresses, or very fitted corset dresses that accentuate your body shape and look sexy and bold. And so, the following are some of our favorite runway styles that had our jaws on the floor, and some tips on how they can be styled on the streets with utmost vogue and sass! So, read on for our personal insights on the SS23 looks!
No wardrobe is an ideal wardrobe without an LBD that just fits you right and makes you feel like a million bucks. LBDs are an investment that will never disappoint you. They are classy, and versatile and can be worn throughout the year as they also make great layering elements when the temperature drops. Now, with such passing trends we find multiple silhouettes and cut out dresses. The best part of this is that you get varied LBDs that suit your unique personality and flatter all the best parts of you!
A full dress is a must-have, indeed. Sexy yet elegant, chic and classy, a piece that is a sure bet and makes you look like the goddess you are. Cut outs came back with the Y2K trends and seem like it is here to stay for a while in some way or another. The full length dresses are an ideal choice for fancy outings such as a black tie event or a cocktail party or say a lavish party. A little fun with the accessories can also completely change the look of the long dress, such as chunky jewelry would be appropriate for a cocktail party while some diamonds will have jaws dropped on the floor at a fancy event!
We all love a good flowy dress, and it seems like ruffles are making a bold statement in trends, especially when it comes to summer dresses. Frilly and frolicking in the summer, dresses sure do look dreamy in the warm seasons and exhibit a sense of joy and fun. We also noticed that the ruffles have been dominantly incorporated in the SS23 runways and also mainly used in reference to the West aesthetic. It also exhibits a boho chic vibe that many lean towards in the spring and summer seasons as it's sexy yet stylish with many varied versions within itself.
