Itching to put your best foot forward this summer?

We love our boots, brogues and sneakers as much as the next shoe fiend, but rising temperatures mean one thing: summer shoes! And hopefully the possibility of wearing them outside.

Spring-Summer 2023 Fashion Trends

Go bold this season.

Ahh Summer, what an amazing time of year, unless you live in Dubai and sweating from places you didn’t know existed! Whether you are travelling out of the heat or sticking it out in the UAE, I have rounded up some summer favourites for this season to keep you cool, calm and stylish.

Oversize It

It’s no secret that I love oversized everything. So the high heat of summer is no exception. In fact, oversized clothing is a big trend for summer this year. Long hemlines are showing up again in the form of full-length skirts and maxi dresses. I found these little gems at Emilia Ohrtmann. The fabrics are so beautiful and soft, I especially loved the Amaia Dress, the colour is absolutely stunning in this soft dove tone and I contrasted it with a brown leather belt. Her oversized Lily dress is an easy go-to for hot summer days and since sparkling bags are set to be another huge hit this summer, I’ve teamed it with this sequin clutch from Desert Totes.

Flower Power

Next up, Flower Power! It’s time to pull out those big, bold florals! The runways for Spring-Summer 2023 are beaming with floral designs, from all-over ditzy prints to bold 3D floral shapes, this season has them all. Needless to say, I don’t think we’ll see too many people rocking Loewe’s runway tribute to the Anthurium Flower any time soon. Nevertheless, the concept was a stunning and dramatic opening for the summer season, topped off with deflated balloon shoes and contrasting bold hues.

For a more wearable version of this trend, head over to Carolina Herrera for some inspiration of a head-to-toe ditsy print with a 3D element – this could be paired down and worn with a crisp white leather skirt for an evening look. Magda Butrym, also known as, The Queen of Florals gives an alternative to this trend with a more subtle tone-on-tone version of the 3D floral, with this chic oversized mackintosh. Lastly, Simone Rocha, shows us how to play with feminine floral shades on bolder shapes with masculine detailing for a fashion-forward summer look.

Cobalt Bold

Another trend I cannot wait for is cobalt blue for the summer season. This shade is one of my all-time favourites when it comes to going bold. In the past, I’ve tried to get hold of this colour but it’s so hard to find the right colour and shape in the same garment, so to know Spring-Summer 2023 is the season of cobalt, brings me much joy! I’m going to be looking for oversized tops, pop colour bags and evening wear in cobalt.

To head down the simplest route for cobalt, select a slim-line lightweight top and pair it with tailored trousers and you’re good to go. The colour is a good standalone statement piece so you won’t need too many accessories or details to make it look sleek and on-trend. I like this version from Cos. If you’re feeling bold, they also have a satin shirt which will definitely make a statement at the office, simply paired with black trousers will do nicely to tone the look down a little. If you want to go all out, the easiest way is with a full suit, oversized blazer and wide-leg pants to match. Maybe save it for that important presentation or for the review with the boss, nothing says confidence more than a full cobalt blue pantsuit!
