The 8 Trending 2023 Fashion & Accessory Pieces That Are Set For Cult Status

2022 has been an eventful year for fashion. From Rihanna’s boundary-pushing maternity style and Virgil Abloh’s final Off-White show, to the shock departure of Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and the quiet brilliance of Matthieu Blazy’s New Bottega, there has been plenty of interest and intrigue.

Thanks to the future-facing nature of the fashion industry, every season we are afforded a glimpse at what is to come in the style stakes. And while we reject the idea that you should toss out old pieces to make way for newer “on-trend” styles, we always love seeing how designers, both established and up and coming, interpret looks. Sometimes it’s the most subtle change: a lowered hemline or a cinched-in silhouette, while other times, it’s the revival of an archival piece or, occasionally, an innovative practice that has never been seen before.

So allow us to present to you the eight pieces that are set for cult status in 2023. From the ’00s motocross jacket and the ’90s maxi skirt, to oversized denim and cargo separates, we’ve shopped the key pieces you can expect to see everywhere. And remember, don’t be afraid to “shop” your own wardrobe and consider pre-loved iterations (we’ve included some options below) while checking out new styles. Bring on 2023.
