Highlights from the Autumn/Winter 2023 Ready to Wear Shows

The autumn/winter 2023 ready-to-wear catwalk season has finally wrapped, with hundreds of shows taking place over the past months in New York, London, Milan and Paris.

Another season, another captivating fashion shows already flashing before our eyes—but not without us catching a handful of the biggest trends to make it down the runways.

Now that we’ve seen all the shows from New York, London, Milan, and Paris, let this be your comprehensive guide to the best fall 2023 fashion trends to look forward to (and shop now).

1. Classic Tailoring

Without a doubt in the world, designers have returned to the true staples of classic tailoring—and it comes as a breath of fresh air.

From Brandon Maxwell’s shorts suits to the pared-down blazers at Proenza Schouler, designers are adding a little more structure to our lives this fall.

2. Red is the New Pink

Every season, there’s a color that takes the industry by storm ! It’s safe to say red will be a big one for fall and winter. While some designers added a quick flash of the fiery shade to looks, others, like Ferragamo, Valentino, Silvia Tcherrasi, and Alexander McQueen wrapped their models in red. AN team believes you’ll be seeing this color more and more. Thus, memo from Fashion Week: Red is the New Pink…and AN loves it!

3.  Dark Romance

Inspired by the dark academia trend with a twist took from Wednesday Addams’s wardrobe, many designers explored their romantic sides. Above all, Rodarte returned to NYFW doing what it does best: dreamy, ethereal looks—only this time, it took a darker turn, calling to mind its costumes for Black Swan. 

Many looks featured rosettes, ( as we spotted on Sandy Liang and Simone Rocha’s shows), Victorian-inspired details, lace, and more, offering to us that gothic yet chic family Addams’s vibes!

4. Back to Basic

It’s official: after months and months of come-and-go trends, wardrobe basics and uniform dressing are officially back.

Gucci’s runway felt unexpected when models walked in classic button-down shirts, oversized blazers and wide-leg jeans. But the label wasn’t the only one to showcase beautiful staples. We saw them at The Row, Prada, Dior, and Bottega Veneta’s runways.

5. Cool and Cozy

AN Team is always happy to see stylish outerwear on the runways, and this season was no exception.  In fact, AN Team can attest that this trend is one to have and hold along with your best wool coats and puffers. Designers like Chloé, Ralph Lauren, and Isabel Marant put their own spins on the classic cold-weather staple, only reinforcing that this ultra-warm coat is a definitive classic and a MUST-HAVE! Don’t forget to grab your cozy one!

6. A Sheer Affair

At Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Proenza, and others, sheer paneling—whether it be in the form of classic mesh or romantic lace—took a centre stage on  the runways. You’ll find it in slip dresses, on blouses, and so much more. Be prepared: AN Team recommends that this trend may be more appropriate for your transitional weather looks than those dead-on winter ones.
