The Year Is 2023, and These Fashion Trends Are In

December 7, 2022

Seasons change, and so do fashion trends. In 2022, we’ve witnessed the invention of trends and the recycling of the 90s; we’ve gone from skinny to mum jeans, minimalist to over-the-top fashion. 

And if one plus one equals two, we bet 2023 fashion will be populated by the following trends: 

Crochet outfits

Whether it’s dresses, sweaters, beachwear, bags, hats or shoes, as long as it’s crochet, put it in our veins. Not only are crochet pieces super-stylish, they’re also unique and comfy.

Oversized suits

You just know the 1900s was an iconic era for the fashion industry by how much we try to recycle their style. This year, it’s y2k fashion. Next, it’ll be oversized suits. If you don’t want to be left out, you should get one of these bad boys now.

Slip skirts

This is for all the minimalist babes. Slip skirts have a way of saying, “I’m classy” without trying too hard. Let it just have a thigh-high slit, and it’s over for your fans.

Asake ”Joha” jeans 

There’s baggy jeans, and there’s Asake baggy jeans. If you want to blow in 2023, you need these jeans in your wardrobe. Periodt.

Man skirts

The man skirts will give ashawo shorts a run for their money. We’re not sure if they really like these or they just want something they can steal from their girlfriends in exchange for tees and hoodies.

Jean pants as tops

 Have you seen the price of jeans? Instead of throwing away your jeans trousis because you’re tired of them, turn them into a top or dress.

Cargo pants

Cargo pants are the agege bread of the trousers industry. Soft, comfortable, versatile and will be around longer than any of us would.

Crop everything 

The only trend Nigerians love more than oversized clothes is cropped ones — there’s no in-between. We’re just glad to see men embracing this change too.

Buff-daddy jacket

Also known as the choke-me-daddy jacket. Who needs a partner when you can wear a jacket that chokes you, acts as a safety vest and can double as a duvet if you’re tired and need a quick nap? Get your choke-me-daddy now.

Miniskirts 

This trend started late in 2022, and it already broke the internet. It’s giving “I’m a bad bitch, and I know it, you know it, we all know it”. Claim your seat at the high table of bad bitchery with one or two of these.
