While temperatures outside are still quite chilly here in Wilkesboro and Winter 2022 fashion trends are still in full swing, the Spring/Summer 2023 fashion season is not far off. With that in mind, it's never too early to plan ahead! We're already thinking forward here at Fruit of the Vine Boutique, and we want to share our fashion predictions with you as we forecast for the coming fashion season! Let's take a look at 4 of the trends that we think are going to be HOT this Spring and Summer!
1. Bright Colors.
Now we all love our neutrals, but this season is all about embracing bright, bold, beautiful colors! And we're not talking about the soft hues and pastels that we tend to see with the arrival of Spring. You can expect to see vibrant oranges, pinks, greens, blues, and yellows this Spring and Summer. You might be saying to yourself, "that's not really my style" or even "how do you pull that off for everyday wear?" but this trend is more wearable than you might think! This gorgeous "We Danced the Night Away Midi Dress" from Flying Tomato is launching in our Spring Collection on Monday and we are swooning over it! This midi dress features an intricate orange and pink boho print, lantern sleeves with a smocked cuff, a flowy ruffle tiered skirt, and a flattering a-line silhouette. This dress is so feminine and perfectly embodies the bold color trend.
Another beautiful bold color that we are loving is this stunning pink color of our "Pink Tweed Shacket". This shacket is every pink lovers' dream! It features. It pairs perfectly with flared jeans and straight leg jeans for a casual look, or a straight leg dress pant for an elevated look. If wearing a colorful top or dress feels like too much for you, you can still jump on the bright color trend by opting for a more subtle look. Adding a statement accessory to an understated outfit can be the perfect way to embrace the bright color trend if you're not looking to go all out. A colorful shoe with an all-black outfit or a colorful earring and necklace combo paired with a neutral outfit is a super wearable way to embrace this colorful trend!
2. Bold Prints.
While solids will always be a staple, prints are going to be all the rage this season, and we don't just mean stripes and dots! In particular, we anticipate a lot of intricate bohemian prints, fantastic florals, and the ever-classic animal print to dominate the Spring/Summer 2023 fashion season! Our gorgeous "Green Boho Print Pleated Maxi Dress" from Flying Tomato is a beautiful example. It features an ornate green and orange boho print that really stands out from the neutrals that typically characterize bohemian prints. The halter neckline and allover pleated design give it an altogether unique and stylish look that screams sophistication. This dress also features a flattering elasticized waistline complete with a self-tie sash! It pairs perfectly with sandals for a more casual look, or wedges and heels for a more elevated look. This dress is so versatile and the muted tones allow it to transition easily from a daytime to nighttime look. The possibilities are endless!
3. Sheer Bliss.
Sheer blouses and dresses are reminiscent of early 2000s fashion and they are making a sweeping comeback this season. Now you may be thinking "I'm not about to wear something see-through!" but don't worry because the "sheer" styles that are trending this season keep it classy. Whether it's a semi-sheer bodice or sheer sleeves, the lightweight and breathable fabric is sure to keep you feeling cool and looking chic in the warmer months. This trend gives an effortless and beachy vibe that is only befitting to the Spring and Summer seasons! You can expect to see lots of blouses, kimonos, dusters, and linen materials with this trend. This beautiful "Orange Boho Woven Top" from Flying Tomato is a perfect example of the type of sheer styles you can expect to see. This top features an ornate maroon, rust, and orange bohemian print. The round neckline and sheer lantern sleeves with smocked cuffs offer an easy, breezy, and beautiful look! This top pairs well with a flared jeans, skinny jeans, or straight leg dress pants.
4. Flowy + Feminine Designs.
Form-fitting pieces have definitely had their moment in past seasons, but this Spring and Summer is all about timeless, romantic designs. Emphasizing softness and femininity, we anticipate that flowy sleeves, relaxed fit designs, and a-line silhouettes will be everywhere this Spring/Summer fashion season. You can expect to see lots of lantern and flutter sleeves, peplum tops, ruffles, and tiered dresses and skirts. We keep seeing these more and more, but we are sure that midi and maxi skirts and dresses will be apart of the flowy and feminine trend! These hem lengths are ever practical, always modest, and ultra versatile, creating an effortlessly graceful and sophisticated look no matter your style. This adorable "Mock Neck Printed Woven Top" from Flying Tomato is flowy and oh so chic! The bright red and yellow in the print are perfect colors for Spring and Summer while the brown keeps it balanced. The mock neck design with flowy batwing sleeves create a unique and sophisticated look. This top can be dressed up or down with shorts and sandals or jeans and wedges. The choice is yours!
