Spring 2023 Fashion Trends

When we talk about Maximalism also means oversized everything. In fact, Gen Z ruled the skinny jean out of their choice. I see women wear oversized blazers, extra large shirts with matching bell bottom pants, and expanding even more like those flared bottoms and wide-leg jeans. I thought whoa those were the ones worn by my brothers in the 70s that they felt looked so cool!

Maximalism also means micro miniskirts are back with a vengeance! Micro miniskirts are self-expressions of maximalism in their underlying essence. It was during the 1960s when this trend was popularized by supermodels and became viral.

Now to the generation who helped invent the trend who are now in their 60s or 70s hey fashion is revolving. As long as you can take ownership you shouldn’t be deprived especially if you’ve got some killer legs.

If miniskirts represent, as Mary Quant often credited with inventing the miniskirt—it was her design that Twiggy wore claimed, sex, freedom, movement, and being alive, then they don’t belong to any generation or age group.

“If you’re not going to wear it at 50, 60, 70,” asks McIntosh, fashion designer “when are you going to wear it?”
