The 2023 Fashion Trends To Try, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

As 2022 draws to a close, it's time to start looking to the trends that will captivate you in 2023. As usual, Spring/Summer 2023 Fashion Week in New York, London, Milan, and Paris was filled with recurring themes that you can expect to see It Girls strutting next year. Some trends spotted on the runway may seem familiar such as cargos, biker jackets, and denim upcycling, but with detail and silhouette updates. Other trends focused on reimagining the classics. For example, you can expect to see the white button-down elevated with intricate cuts and materials, fringe and feather details, unique draping that gives a Grace Jones feel, elaborate floral embellishments, and more.

It's never too early to start thinking about what 2023 trends fit your aesthetic or, more specifically, your star sign. Below, astrologer and witch Stephanie Campos matched the astrological signs with the most significant 2023 runway trends she believes each sign will gravitate toward in the warm weather months next year.

Aries Zodiac Signs: Buckles Victor VIRGILE/Gamma-Rapho/Getty Images Campos thinks Aries will gravitate towards statement belts and buckles. "No stranger to making a scene in exchange for a little attention, Aries loves to stand out from the crowd," she says. The soon-to-be trend took over the runway with playful placements at shows like Dominnico, Alessandra Rich, and Miu Miu. Aries are sure to be lacing their looks next spring with unconventional buckles and belts in an innovative way (Think: belted tops, statement buckles, and more).

Taurus Zodiac Signs: Crochet Victor VIRGILE/Gamma-Rapho/Getty Images Ruled by Venus, Taurus has some of the best fashion in the game, says Campos. "Crochet is the optimal go-to trend for Taurus, as they appreciate fine craftsmanship and detail, but also, as a sensual zodiac sign, consider the way texture fits into their wardrobe," she says. Tauruses can pull inspo from runway shows like Ulla Johnson, Elie Saab, and Adam Lippes for beautiful crochet intricacies to inject into their spring and summer wardrobe.

Gemini Zodiac Signs: Multi-Pockets WWD/Penske Media/Getty Images Utilitarian style was all over the runway this season and it pushed the depths of the already-trending cargo Y2K style into other categories, such as cargo skirts, vests, and jackets. Campos suggests the multi-pocketed style as a solution for busy Geminis. Known for its curiosity and being on-the-go, Gemini’s can land a reputation for being a bit scatterbrained. But there's no risk of losing your keys or phone when they're hidden safely inside your pants. Gemini can seek inspiration from brands like Sacai, Act N1, and GCDS for a unique take on multi-pocket styling for next year.

Cancer Zodiac Signs: Moonlight Radiance WWD/Penske Media/Getty Images With la luna as their ruling planet, Cancer shares a deep connection with the moon's iridescent reflections. Rhinestones and other twinkling tones will make Cancers both feel empowered and even more comfortable in their own skin. Rodarte, Giorgio Armani, and S.S. Daley called to Cancer's crescent intuitiveness with their sultry light reflective looks. The water sign can expect lots of silver and sequins in their seasonal wardrobe update.

Leo Zodiac Signs: Liquid Gold Giovanni Giannoni/WWD/Getty Images Campos says Leos are born searching for the spotlight, and as the zodiac sign associated with royalty, they live for a liquid gold moment. If it has shine, they're all over it — from donning light-catching and attention-grabbing statement pieces to embodying a standout staple dipped in gold. Leo wants to be the brightest in the room, and with this trend, they’re sure to radiate. Gabriela Hearst, Genny, and Tom Ford encapsulated the Leo spirits with eye-catching looks laced in gold during Fashion Week. Leos won't have any problem adopting this trend to their already-superior closets.

Virgo Zodiac Signs: DIY Denim Mondadori Portfolio/Mondadori Portfolio/Getty Images Known for being technical and crafty, it makes sense to pair Virgo with the upcycling trend. “Give them a pair of scissors and let their minds run rampant — they're the perfect sign to reinvent a traditional denim look with some DIY denim," says Campos. Across several Spring/Summer runway shows, brands like Blumarine, Masha Popova, and Diesel reconceptualized how denim can be manipulated. And where creativity and DIY collide, you can find Virgo right at the cross-section.

Libra Zodiac Signs: Sunset Ombres Victor VIRGILE/Gamma-Rapho/Getty Images With Venus as their ruling planet, Libras are all about style. Libra season marks the changing of the seasons, when the daylight begins to fade and night grows darker, which is why rocking shades of sunset will feel so natural,” Campos says. “The vibrant sunset hues will also guarantee that they stand out in a crowd.” Libras can seek inspo from brands like Sandro, Etro, and Who Decides War, which seamlessly mimicked the ombre horizon during recent runway shows.

Scorpio Zodiac Signs: Sheerly Business Noam Galai/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images "While Scorpio is more than willing to bear it all with a look that features transparency, they keep their thoughts and feelings closer to the chest,” says Campos. “Scorpios know the power of sex appeal and aren't afraid to make a statement by putting the natural curves of their body on display.” As the sign not afraid of a risqué moment, Scorpios can look to Fe Noel, Alaia, and Sid Neigum Spring/Summer 2023 shows for their next outfit reveal (or lack thereof).

Sagittarius Zodiac Signs: Fringing Mondadori Portfolio/Mondadori Portfolio/Getty Images Not one for staying quiet, Sagittarius will appreciate the loud entrance they’ll make when gliding into a room wearing head-to-toe fringe. The runway was covered in unique fringing that moved away from the traditional bohemian take. On the runway, Andreadamo, Bronx & Banco, and Alejandra Alonso Rojas featured intricate fringing techniques like laddered draping, dipped for contrast, or vibrant coloring — all styles the archer sign will appreciate in the warmer months.

Capricorn Zodiac Signs: Shades of Beige WWD/Penske Media/Getty Images Campos describes Capricorns as having a chic and refined style that’s far from boring. “Fun fact: Capricorns are also major history buffs,” Campos says, “and what could be more defining for Caps than classic looks with a modern twist?" Monochromatic beige looks left a lasting impression on the runway, so Capricorns can look to Ferragamo, Roki, and Co for their Spring/Summer wardrobe reset.

Aquarius Zodiac Signs: Optical Illusions WWD/Penske Media/Getty Images Campos describes Aquarius as the most forward-thinking and progressive of all the signs. And sporting an avant-garde set that creates an optical illusion is the fashion moment they've been waiting for. To keep onlookers guessing, Aquarians should lean into runway moments like the denim-printed leather from Bottega Venetta or the Schiaparelli and Balmain’s silhouette prints and hardware that imitate the female body for inspiration as they’re transforming their wardrobes.

5 Fresh Decor and Style Ideas to Try in 2023

by Mary Kinney Dec 22, 2022 From jewelry stacking to marble accents, meet the trends we anticipate making major waves—straight from the studios of talented Etsy sellers.

In 2022, while the world opened up again, we reconnected with loved ones, changed up our routines, and sought to restore balance in our lives. We enjoyed emerald green dreams, channeled a coastal grandma-chic aesthetic, and embraced mood-boosting hues with hot pink everything. Now, with a brand new year ahead of us, we’re looking to celebrate all of the complexities life has to offer—including the way we think about our personal style.

“The concept of duality is emerging as a key theme for 2023,” says Etsy Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson, with shoppers expanding their individual styles to accommodate a range of (sometimes opposing) aesthetics—and you can follow suit, with items expertly crafted and curated by Etsy sellers, across a range of price points. “The best part is that it’s not an either-or situation," explains Dayna. "You can adopt a mashup of whatever speak to you.” Which means you can sport preppy ‘90s fashion finds and dip your toe into the goth trend, or add a streamlined marble piece to your home and incorporate the rustic characteristics of contemporary cabin decor. Because after all, we contain multitudes—so why shouldn’t our style? Read on to discover some of the looks we anticipate seeing everywhere in the year ahead—and decide which ones (plural, you don't have to choose!) you'd like to make your own.

Etsy’s Colors of the Year: indigo and honeycomb

In the spirit of embracing opposites, this year we’ve chosen not one but two Colors of the Year—and like any good power couple, indigo and honeycomb bring out the best in each other. “A beautiful blend of blue and violet that represents wisdom and intuition, indigo carries with it both a high-impact and futuristic tone,” Dayna says, “while honeycomb reminds us to appreciate and protect the intelligence of nature that exists all around us.” Brighten up your kitchen with honey-colored mugs and planters, and add a little depth to your winter closet with a moody indigo jumpsuit—or style this darling duo together for a unique blend of dark royal tones and uplifting golden glow.

Modern marble marvels

Whether you’re adding a marble tray to your entryway to help with your 2023 organization goals or elevating your tablescapes with a pink-streaked vintage candlestick holder, this classic stone adds brightness, dimension, and sophistication to any space. “I’m loving how this timeless material can be styled in fresh ways—including in new colorways like green and burgundy and dramatic statement pieces featuring patterns with heavy veining,” Dayna says.

Accessory stacking

Stacking rings have long been a staple of any jewelry lover’s repertoire, but now necklaces and earrings are joining the party with a more-is-more approach to piling on the bling. Mix and match hoops, huggies, and studs to add a little sparkle to any outfit, and top off your individual look with a curvy ear cuff for a no-piercing-required finishing flourish. More of a necklace person? Layer a chunky choker with your favorite minimalist mid-length chain for a dynamic look that’s simple and chic enough to be your new go-to—and interesting enough to keep turning heads.

Contemporary cabin decor

During the winter (or all year round!), take advantage of the great indoors and create a snuggly sanctuary at home with earthy cabin-inspired decor. A new take on traditional rustic, this woodsy aesthetic incorporates ‘70s boho designs with intricate, geometric woodwork for a contemporary-yet-cozy, lived-in look. From reclaimed wood dining tables with salvaged granite inlays to live-edge shelving hand-hewn from maple and pecan trees, these extra-special picks will transform your space into a trendy cabin getaway, without the hours-long roadtrip. Sprinkle in a few speckled ceramic mugs and abstract-patterned quilts and get ready to hunker down in style—hot cocoa optional, but encouraged.

Oversized bags

"These options are more than just a stylish statement," says Dayna of the generously sized carryalls that are enjoying a major fashion comeback. "They can take on work commutes, day trips, and everything in between,"—making them ideal on-the-go storage solutions that are as fashionable as they are practical. Whether you’re into a cheeky extra-large tote, a cocktail party clutch, or an elegant everyday crossbody, these super-sized bags are a one-and-done option with multiple compartments for all your emergency snacks and extra layers (we’re looking at you, mamas!). With their eye-catching prints, fresh hues, and meticulous construction, these bold bags from artisan Etsy sellers will do double duty as arm candy as you travel through the new year.

10 Interior Design Trends We’re Quiet Quitting in 2023

Sometimes, it’s worth taking the quiet quitting route and slowly phasing out trends from your life before it’s too late (and you’re in deeper than you ever intended to go). I have every intention of revealing which design trends are most likely on their way out for 2023, but first I have an important disclaimer to share: Context matters. Yes, trends come and go, but at the end of the day, taste is subjective, and there’s no room for the negative projections of others in spaces that make you feel safe, happy, and true to yourself—however the interiors are decorated. These days, the design cycle is less fleeting than a fast fashion garment: It’s a bit more challenging to chuck your Chesterfield sofa just because it’s not “in” this time next year. (If you wait long enough, I promise it’ll come back!) That being said, we do live in an incredibly fast-paced digital era where crazes become hyper-obsessions until they very quickly reach a peak, become oversaturated, and pass their prime.

The blob boom blew up on the internet this year, with delightfully nostalgic amorphous shapes gracing the pages of numerous AD issues. While a host of beautiful and timeless objects spawned from this trend, we do believe there will be a return to an appreciation of more structured forms. Other trends on their way out that we’re hoping will stay there: color-matched decor, for one (think: black-and-white photo clusters, or rainbow bookshelves). Others feel equally devoid of life—and perhaps are therefore dying—such as all-white or all-gray color schemes, and clean-countered kitchens. And don’t get me started on all the iconic designs that have been duped to death! Scroll down for the top 10 interior design trends we’re sending off (and hope you’ll consider quiet quitting) come 2023.

Blobby everything everywhere

Structure is in! While we love blobs, wiggles, and the childhood delight of curvy shapes reminiscent of elevated childhood Play-Doh creations, there’s something nice about pronounced lines bringing a bit of form into a room. This isn’t a cue to completely abandon all things blobby; it just means when there’s a craze for one, like a pendulum, we expect to see a rise in the other. Let’s cut it out with the boutique hotel vibes!

Squeaky clean kitchens

Under the same vein is the extremely modern minimalist kitchen, which you’ll often find in all-white or gray. There’s not a single bowl on the counter, and god forbid any eccentric marbling in the counter stone! Often, the cabinets will come in a high gloss polish, but certainly never a glossy appliance in sight. A terrifying place to cook. What are we here for? Think the antithesis, celebrity hairstylist Harry Josh’s country house kitchen, brimming with bowls, plants, and spices on every surface. It’s warm, homey, joyful, and welcoming—everything a kitchen should be.

Open floor plans

Earlier this year, we informed you that the open floor plan is not disappearing anytime soon. That being said, post-pandemic, the reality remains: If you’re living in a city with limited space and home is for work, sleep, and everything but the kitchen sink, then you want it to function as such (dividing our desks and pelotons—when possible—from our living rooms.) Not to mention, the most charming parts of the home are often the smallest spaces we turn into something cozy, like this perfect breakfast nook in Alex Bass’s West Village apartment. The original concept of the guest room might be dead, but that doesn’t mean you should stop compartmentalizing through physical spaces too. Boundaries are important, people!

All-white and gloomy greige interiors

Is it just me, or is everything suddenly starting to look like an RH catalog? The whole greige palette is unnecessarily exhausting: Any decor item you come across, if it’s not white or gray, it’s on its way! Yes, all-white can be sleek and minimalist, but just as often it feels devoid of any personality or fun. If you’re looking for a better interpretation of this aesthetic, try all-white with a subtle splash of color, like the kitchen in this Upper East Side apartment—it’s only one wall, but it brings a whole other dimension to the space. Not to mention how too much gray can really dampen the mood of a room. You don’t want your space to feel like it gives off “nobody’s home” vibes, as we like to say.

Color-coordinated decor

From black-and-white photo clusters to color-coordinated bookshelves, this finicky and unnatural look still feels a bit more like a curated Pinterest page than the intimate rooms of someone’s actual home. You should be able to stick a new book on your shelf even if there’s only space in the pink section. Open your mind to all the possibilities for arranging things.
