Looks From the Spring 2023 Collections to Inspire Your Bridal Look

Looks From the Spring 2023 Collections to Inspire Your Bridal Look

RUNWAY: Getting married can be stressful. Actually, let me rephrase that: Getting married will be stressful. The guest list will be a nightmare, you will get in at least one nonsense fight with your significant other, and the seating chart will keep you up for weeks, but figuring out what to wear? That should be the best part of it all.

The stereotype dictates that all women want to look like Disney princesses. That’s certainly incorrect, but one thing that the stereotype does get right is the concept of fantasy. Of course, fantasies are as unique as those who hold them. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to be a minimalist queen, perhaps you’ve always wanted to wear the kind of dress that people look at on the runway and wonder who would wear that in real life, or perhaps you’ve stared at an image of Bianca Jagger’s white wedding suit with her huge hat and thought, God, I wish I had the guts to do that. Well, now’s the chance to do it!

It’s easy to think that just because you are getting married you need to look for a wedding dress and buy something exclusively from a bridal designer. But the truth is that anything you wear to say “I do” is, in fact, your wedding outfit, whether that’s a voluminous tulle ball gown or a devastating white blouse worn with a pair of crisp trousers. In that spirit, here are 69 looks from the spring 2023 collections to get you in a forever kind of mood.

The 9 Hair Trends Set to Explode in 2023

HAIR TRENDS: If 2022 was all about going for the chop and experimenting with styles we’d never considered before, what will be the biggest hair trends in 2023? Well, first thing’s first, we’ll be taking that same playful approach to our hair into the new year, trying out new cuts, colors, styling tricks, formulas, and accessories on a quest to reinvent ourselves. In the spirit of inspiration, Vogue spoke to some of the world’s top hairstylists to learn what hair trends they predict will be big in 2023. Mood boards at the ready.

Slick Artistry

Artistry is back, and hairstylists are getting their creative juices flowing again. “For so long, it’s just been about the haircut, but we’re starting to see a return to styling again,” says Luke Hersheson. “Now the question is more about how you wear your hair up without it feeling too old fashioned… which is why very slick, gelled up-dos are a big trend right now.” Whether top knots, ballet buns, and Croydon face-lift ponytails, or gelled kiss curls and more ornate and architectural shapes—the latter as seen on Lily James at the British Fashion Awards recently—it’s time to really go there with your updo.

Hersheson’s tip on how to make the look work for you? “Concentrate on bringing the sides of your hair up in line with your cheekbones,” he says. “Generally, these kinds of styles are easier to do when the hair is wetter as it’s a bit more malleable—load up on Almost Everything Cream to add hold.” For extra detail, get creative with your edges, too.

Crown Care

It might not be the most exciting trend in the books, but looking after your scalp is integral to healthy hair. “The importance of scalp health is catching on,” says Jen Atkin, whose newly-launched Ouai Anti-Dandruff Shampoo contains salicylic acid to reduce flaking and soothe inflammation. “Scalp care is essential to achieving shiny, healthy hair.”

With searches for the term “scalp treatment for dry scalp” up 70 percent on Pinterest, it seems we’re all on the hunt for formulas that work. Kérastase’s soon-to-launch Symbiose range combines piroctone olamine, salicylic acid, and bifidus to dissolve flakes while maintaining a balanced microbiome and scalp-skin barrier. Try the Micro-Peeling Cellulaire, which contains salicylic acid to gently exfoliate sensitive scalps.

The Box Bob

Elsewhere, Nai’Vasha forecasts that we won’t see the end of the bob next year. “My biggest tip with the bob is not to overthink it… or underestimate its power,” she says.

Whether thanks to hair extensions or good old-fashioned growth, hair is getting longer by the day. The difference is that instead of leaving hair to air dry for an undone feel (which still has its place in many of our routines, it’s worth noting), Hersheson says we’re moving towards a more styled aesthetic. That might be a classic blowout or big voluminous waves, but whatever it is, it’s an antidote to the last couple of years in which our obsession with short hairstyles left us less room for experimentation.

Side Partings

“I tend to favor a middle part, but it feels like a good time to flip the parting deep onto the side,” says George Northwood. “It suddenly makes things feel fresh and new, especially with a bob.” He name-checks Emma Corrin in Lady Chatterley’s Lover for reference. They “went from a deep, side-parted marcel wave into a very textured, undone bob with the same parting.” Both looks, he says, worked with their fine features and highlighted how a bob can move from elegant to sensual with just a little tweak. Another good example of the side parting in action is Alexa Chung, whose latest looks feature a number of side partings; she adds an embellished barrette for extra dazzle.

The Wet Look

“Ultra glossy, impossibly shiny, wet-look hair is a 2023 trend that is set to be everywhere,” says Northwood, who created a luminous wet look on Alicia Vikander at Cannes Film Festival this year. “On the catwalk, Chanel and Saint Laurent showed us how to wear this style at any length, whether it be center-parted, with a deep side part, down or textured.” A great way to take a daytime look into the evening, it can also work on any hair type. “We offer a texture release and silk press in order to achieve the look, and we really focus on hydrating the hair,” says Charlotte Mensah. “The result is really glossy hair that’s also healthy.”

Sculptural Braids

“We’ll see more braided styles crafted to look like sculptures,” reveals Mensah. Seek out inspiration from celebrities like Gabrielle Union, who recently sported a sculptural braid flower up-do at the Strange World premiere, or Yara Shahidi and Lupita Nyong’o, who regularly experiment with towering braids on the red carpet.

Seventies Bangs

They’re really not going anywhere, according to Hersheson, who says they are one of the most requested styles in salons. “There are nuances to them, though—they can be Stevie Nicks-style and really obvious or a bit more grown out. Either way, they’re the epitome of cool-girl hair,” he says. As versatile as they come, you can switch up how you style them: blow them out so they’re super fluffy or wear them beachier and undone.

Noughties Mullets

The divisive mullet made a comeback this year, and at Larry King’s salon, hairstylist Lilli Bridger created a Noughties take on the trend for Mia Regan. “It was really reminiscent of the short style that Paris Hilton wore at that time,” he says. “It embraces those flicky ends that were key back then—it’s a style of hairdressing that will be big in 2023.”

The New Wave of Gorpcore: Northface/Gucci Collabs

The New Wave of Gorpcore: Northface/Gucci Collabs

Years after the trend first emerged, fashion is fueling a powerful second wind.

When Jason Chen coined the term gorpcore in The Cut back in 2017, he wasn’t discovering a new trend — he simply put a label on an aesthetic we were already familiar with: fashion that leans towards the outdoorsy, informed by what you might see on a hiker or a camper, with an emphasis on the utilitarian. But it occupies a gray area between technical apparel and something a little bit more zeitgeist-y, like normcore.

Gorpcore went mainstream in the mid-2010s when celebrities like A$AP Rocky and Frank Ocean started wearing Adidas Terrex AX3 GTX Men’s Trekking sneakers and Arc’teryx jackets. Demand for these brands skyrocketed, both from consumers and other players in the market: This ushered in a series of collaborations — North Face and Supreme, Columbia and Opening Ceremony, Fjallraven and Acne Studios — that continue to this day. (Just last week, Reformation announced a capsule with Canada Goose.)

Gorpcore has flourished into its own subcategory in the market. And in recent years, it’s evolved to intersect with the luxury world on a whole new level.

Dior BirkenstockJacquemus hiking boots, Prada’s hit nylon accessories — okay, the latter technically is a re-issue, but still: All of these are a testament to gorpcore’s popularity among shoppers. (The Lyst Index of 10 hottest products for Q3 of 2022 included both the Birkenstock Boston Clog and the Patagonia Better Sweater fleece.)

“Essentially, gorpcore became the new luxury streetwear,” says Lorna Hall, director of fashion intelligence at WGSN. “Its active functionality was truly performative to those buying into it — hence the infamous TikToks demonstrating a jacket’s waterproof credentials [by] standing in a shower or throwing bottles of champagne at it.”

It’s only growing in resale, too: Searches for “gorpcore” have been on the rise on Depop among its loyal customer base of teens and twenty-somethings, according to Augustina Panzoni, the company’s trends and category manager. Brands like Arc’teryx, The North Face and Salomon are driving greater traffic than ever, especially for vests, rain jackets, technical pants and bags. But Panzoni calls out Prada, Dior, Jacquemus and Loewe as luxury brands that have crossed into the space.

Gorpcore gives these younger consumers the opportunity to mix and match different aesthetics together and express themselves. They tend not to be loyal to a single brand, nor can they necessarily afford an entire luxury wardrobe. By jumping (and cashing) in on this aesthetic, luxury brands have provided more aspirational options to those able to afford them; but it’s an aesthetic that’s still attainable on a budget.

TikTok has also helped. Panzoni points to the viral trend of people wearing Arc’teryx’s Gore-tex jacket in the shower while listening to “Arc’teryx” by YG; searches for Arc’teryx rose almost 200% in the last quarter on Depop.

Meanwhile, for the brands that originated gorpcore, this recent trend is an opportunity to expand their clientele and stay relevant.

In 2021, The North Face teamed up with Gucci on a collaboration of groovy backpacks, colorblocked coats, Gucci-North Face monogramed puffers and heavy-duty boots. Launchmetrics reported that in just four months, the collection accumulated a whopping $15.3M in Media Impact Value. That same year, Arc’teryx partnered up with Jil Sander on a line of jackets, bibbed trousers and one-pieces that marry aesthetics and utility. More recently, on Sandy Liang‘s Spring 2023 runway, models walked out in ballet-inspired outfits paired with Salomon hiking shoes, creating an interesting juxtaposition between the designer’s über-feminine style and tougher footwear.

Teva has seen a similar resurgence in the age of gorpcore, embraced by everyone from Kendall Jenner to Chloe Sevigny — and it’s only kept growing since the pandemic.

“We carved out this unique space for ourselves in the fashion market with our statement sandals, and now with our lifestyle boots, but we really saw an acceleration of comfy-casual trends winning during the pandemic” says Julia Feldman, associate product line manager at Teva. (The brand alluded to a luxury collaboration on the horizon.)

Also on the footwear front, Collina Strada — a beloved New York label that’s often inspired by nature and driven by sustainability — introduced a collaboration with Melissa that’s generated a lot of buzz. Their Puff Sandal is futuristic-style hiking shoe that’s both funky and sporty, inspired by founder Hillary Taymour’s own lifestyle.

When it came to designing the shoe, it was equal parts about the aesthetic and functionality. “We made it so you could literally hike up rocks and jump into an ocean — it’s the coolest water-functioning shoe I have ever seen,” Taymour says. “Wear it with a pair of socks in the fall, with cargo pants or a dress, and it’s still a statement shoe. I feel like anything that’s multi-functional and can be worn for different types of outings is very much the Collina way.”

So what’s behind this new wave of gorpcore — one that toys with luxury — surging years after the trend first emerged? To a certain extent, it’s a reflection of our sociopolitical climate.

“In streetwear, the mood and mentality always fits the times, and there’s a very definite element emerging of ‘harderwear for hard times,’ which aligns the aesthetic and performance to the dark geopolitical and economic mood music” says WGSN’s Hall. “The narrative is less about outdoor pursuits and weather functionality, more about survivalism.”

As for what’s to come, some predict the next step for gorpcore is to go digital.

“Streetwear is also starting to respond to the meta economy, where we see performance streetwear increasingly being influenced by metaverse/gaming and fantasy aesthetics,” says Hall. “The question is: Should they lean into these shift, or is it a step too far from their true extreme/outdoor DNA and therefore too big a risk?” Only time will tell.

AI helped create the metaverse-ready hue.

Pantone’s 2023 color of the year is a “a carmine red,” made in conjunction with an AI tool, named Viva Magenta. Per a press release, it is “an unconventional shade for an unconventional time.”

The hue is as exuberant as the feeling of coming “back outside” post-lockdown, which even Beyoncé sang in this year’s chart-topping hit “Break My Soul.” It’s inspired by cochineal, a precious dye that typically comes from a scale insect. But more than being unique in getting its inspiration from critters, Pantone’s 2023 color of the year is different than all the rest in a major way: It’s metaverse-ready.

“The last few years were transformative in many ways in terms of people’s sense of self, and the way well- being, priorities and identity are being thought about,” said Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, via a press release. “As a result, space has been created where we are free to explore and be accepted for exactly who we feel we are, whether it be in a cybernetic universe, a conventional space, or a magical blend of both.”

Working with the AI tool Midjourney, Pantone is leveraging the bold magenta color to explore a “Magentaverse” ecosystem, which will include immersive experiences in the color world in partnership with interactive art exhibition company ARTECHOUSE. While the company has art spaces in Washington, DC and New York City, it will host the “Magentaverse” at its Miami Beach location. Beginning on Dec. 3, the immersive exhibition will be open to the public for the first time, with “immersive rooms with textures and interactions that plunge attendees into an array of visual, auditory, and tactile experiences.”

Pantone prides itself on choosing its color of the year with an eye for upcoming trends and an appreciation for the future cultural landscape. Its punchy yellow-green in 2017 represented new beginnings, while last year’s “very peri” hue was inspired by the feeling of emerging from isolation.
