If you feel like you can’t keep up with the ever-changing storm of trends, don’t worry.
2023 will see a carryover of trends. This is great for your sanity and your wallet.
For home spaces, Ikondium Design owner and interior designer Adriana Bland uses natural wood in combination with other natural materials such as stone, both in home upgrades and accent pieces such as coffee tables and end tables. Expect continuation.
Arches are a new trend in interiors such as rounded door frames, ceilings, shelves and arched mirrors.
Now move on to the most popular room in the house, the kitchen. Every five to eight years, the kitchen goes from light to dark. In 2023 we will see more walnut and black.
Finally, new furniture has a lead time of four to eight months, so shoppers opt for used and vintage furniture. These have a one-of-a-kind vibe and are readily available.
Moving on to luscious locks, you’ll see hair charms in your ponytails and braids. Unlike the crunchy hairstyles of the 2000s, this style looks like naturally wavy hair.
Now, when it comes to hair color, colorists continue to use warm golden tones, emphasizing brunette colors. Finally, as the side pieces are back with 90’s layers, the middle piece may be disappearing.
Let’s dive into the fashion scene and analyze the Spring 2023 runway collections.
Models are set to walk the show, rocking the relaxed trend in oversized/loose denim and blazers.
The see-through maxi skirt is also back. Sheers are outfitted in various layers, such as pairing sheer long sleeves with another plain silk crop top.
Finally, the feminine Renaissance puff sleeve was reintroduced a few years ago and continues to find its way into tops and dresses. This is mainly due to the fact that 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s fashion has been recycled many times over the years. The brand now looks to different eras for inspiration, including the Edwardian era.
Finally, since #NewYearNewMe is always trending in January, we close with wellness trends.
A poll by the American Osteopathic Association found that vitamin and supplement use is at an all-time high, with 86% of Americans taking some form of dietary supplement. I’m trying to move from pills to infused foods such as truffles, bars, or beverages with daily supplements.
On the beverage topic, the energy drink sector is moving towards healthier alternatives with ingredients such as reishi, matcha and green coffee. Even the wine and spirits category has followed suit, making alcoholic beverages a low-alcohol or mocktail alternative.
Will you follow any of these trends in the new year?
