As one chapter closes, another one begins, and that’s especially true for fashion trends. Airy styles are expected to take the fashion world (and our closets) by storm next year.
Every year Pinterest announces which styles will make an impact in the upcoming year based on its site search, and its 2023 Pinterest Predicts report includes airy styles. What exactly does this airy fashion trend consist of, you ask? Think lace, ruffles, tulle, shimmer, and sheer clothing.
The proof is all in the numbers. Pinterest revealed that searches for lace long-sleeve tops were up by 225%, 65% for tulle sleeves, 70% for sheer pants outfit, and 95% for ruffle shirts for men. “After two years of sweatpants and loungewear, the focus is now on body-baring silhouettes—a fashion-forward moment of empowerment in turbulent times,” Pinterest writes in the report. “Combining ethereal sensuality with the dreamlike quality of ballet, this trend is a gender-agnostic expression of femininity and strength.”
It’s not too shocking to see this airy fashion trend take center stage. Celebrities have worn sheer dresses left and right throughout 2022, and trends like Plazacore and balletcore made it all over our TikTok For You pages. And because we, of course, want you to stay on top of the latest trends, we’ve handpicked some styles to help you channel this airy fashion era yourself. Ahead, 20 airy fashion pieces to add to your wardrobe in 2023.
Pinterest Predicts 2023 Airy Styles: Lace
When we think of lace, lingerie or formal dressing typically come to mind. But with airy fashion, lace clothing can touch pretty much any point of an outfit. With long-sleeve lace tops being the highest-searched of the bunch, there are plenty of options to choose from that are available at retailers like Reformation and boho-chic empire Free People. Daytime and evening dresses are out there too.
Pinterest Predicts 2023 Airy Styles: Tulle
Tulle really made an impact once balletcore hit the scene, with skirts and dresses inspired by tutus. Now, to channel airy fashion, you can take tulle to the next level. Shop for poufy tops, contouring corsets, and maxi skirts.
Pinterest Predicts 2023 Airy Styles: Ruffles
Ruffles never really disappeared, but we rarely saw the trend outside of dresses. Now you can find ruffles on everything, from cozy knit sweaters to miniskirts to going-out blouses and nightgown-inspired dresses.
Pinterest Predicts 2023 Airy Styles: Shimmer
We’re glad to hear that shimmer will be trending, just ahead of NYE. Sparkly, glistening dresses are already hitting retailers in a variety of different styles including flouncy slip dresses, curve-hugging maxis, and even formal gowns.
Pinterest Predicts 2023 Airy Styles: Sheer
Sheer clothing had quite the moment in 2022, and we’re less than surprised to see the trend isn’t slowing down for the upcoming year. For those not afraid to show a little skin, sheer dresses, pants, tops, and catsuits are hitting shelves (and websites) everywhere. It’s good to know this skin-baring trend isn’t just for the A-list.
