The definitive SS23 style trends

SS23 Trends

We’re delighted to welcome longer days and warmer weather - and with that, our beautiful new season style trends!

The change in seasons often comes with excitement – most especially for the shift to summer styling and, of course, the excuse to indulge in a new pedicure!

At the same time, easing back into new season dressing can take an adjustment. If you’re needing a little inspiration, read on – we cover our curation of the new international trends, whilst staying true to our values of beautifully made, timeless and, of course, luxuriously comfortable footwear.

Let’s start with the colour palette for this season – which looks as delicious as it sounds.

Tropical Brights sees a blend of colours inspired by a Miami sunset. Think uplifting shades of papaya and orange, bold fuchsia, magenta and bubble-gum. Passionate and playful, this mood-boosting trend is at once rich and charming. 

Lavender Haze is the colour seen on every catwalk this year, comprising shades of mauve, lavender, violet and lilac. A signifier of hope and vitality, one can’t help but feel cheerful when wearing this beautiful, feminine hue. Pair with neutrals for a chic ensemble or go full tone-on-tone for a showstopping look.

Optimistic and uplifting, ‘Elemental Blues’ features a spectrum of hues from cobalt and cyan, to sky blue.

For those who prefer a more subdued style, Warm Mid-Century features tones of ecru, biscuit and malt, while Blended Whites is a spectrum of cool whites, warm creams, ivory and bone, for freshness that still feels sleek.

In silhouettes, this season is all about French Girl Style - this trend sees gamine elegance reign supreme, with chic flats, points and loafers, adorned with classic piping, playful tassels and metal buckle trims. 

If you like your accessories to feel a little more glamourous, Grecian Goddess, will be your go-to trend, with metallic leathers and plaited detailing that honours the Golden Era of Hollywood.

Or, make a total statement with Superficial Adornments – think beautiful embellishments on classically stunning styles that really bring the ‘wow’ factor.

For women on the go, Athlete Chic remains a trend that is still as important as ever. We love the sense of luxe and polish, without compromising on all-day comfort. With innovative design, tactile textures, and high-tech design, you’ll love this season’s options.

We hope you love the new season offering as much as we do!
