What's en vogue right now? For spring and summer, top trends include ultra mini skirts, head-to-toe white and bohemian aesthetics.

But that's not all. Sexy cuts and silhouettes have taken the fashion world by storm — and whether you love or hate it, underwear as outerwear is also making a comeback.

Moving right along with even more sexy trends, sultry cutouts and low-rise waists are also trendy right now. Speaking of low-rise waistbands, Y2K fashion has made a glorious return with butterfly appliques, baggy cargos and dramatic crop tops flooding the mainstream.

To round out the list, colour blocking — with bright, bold shades on suits, dresses and jeans — has never been more popular. So, if you needed a style mood booster, this trend is it.

Have we piqued your interest? Read on for a breakdown of the top 10 spring/summer fashion trends and where you can shop the latest pieces.

The trendiest pieces of spring/summer 2023

1. Make it bold, make it bright

A major spring/summer fashion trend of 2023 is colour blocking with bright, vibrant hues that demand to be noticed. Think shades like tangerine, lemon yellow, letterbox red and our favourite, daring fuschia.

Lama Jouni Pink Strappy Mini Dress

There's no doubt, fuchsia is set to be the colour of the season. Want to get on board with this fashion-forward trend? Consider shopping this vibrant, bold fuchsia dress from FARFETCH.

With a stylish combination of dainty spaghetti straps, square neck and a ruched effect, this dress will look perfect dressed up or down for all of your upcoming summer plans.

The best part? Because it's made from 100% cotton, you won't overheat on warm summer days — and it's machine washable, making it easy to maintain.

2. Mini mini skirts are in

The go-to trend of spring/summer 2023, mini skirts have recently soared in popularity. While there’s nothing revolutionary about a mini skirt, the ones dominating the scene in 2023 are ultra-mini; the higher the hemline, the better. Whatever the material, whatever the colour, don any mini mini skirt to be on trend this season. Don’t forget you can pair them with tights if the British weather is proving a bit temperamental this summer.

GAP Low Rise Denim Mini Skirt

Made from an organic cotton blend, this non-stretch skirt comes in a slim fit with a low-rise waistband. It also has pockets and belt loops in case you’d like to accessorise it further. We can’t get enough of the simple design, making it the perfect everyday mini skirt.

3. Keep it clean

While white has always been a much-loved summer hue, designers have taken the trend a step further this year with all white outfits drawing a lot of acclaim from critics and shoppers. Reminiscent of '90s fashion, this minimalist trend is an easy way to exude class and elegance.

Nasty Gal Premium Tailored Trouser

One of the most popular styles of the moment, wide-leg trousers seem to be everywhere. Take the trend to the next level with this crisp, ivory pair from Nasty Gal. We love the pleat detailing and the subtle 'V' shaped cut-out at the back.

4. Captivate with a cut-out

Sexy silhouettes have never been more popular. But aside from the usual slinky designs and skin-tight materials, cut-outs are being spotted more and more in the fashion industry this spring/summer. It’s one of our favourite trends, thanks to how versatile the style is. Different pieces will have different sized cut-outs in different designs — so you can easily choose how much skin you want to show off with your look.

With an alluring corset bodice and a body-hugging design, this mini dress is sultry in more than one way. Its tight bodycon silhouette makes for a flattering fit — while the cutouts along the hips allow you to show some skin for a bit of added sex appeal.

5. Embrace underwear as outerwear

Some lingerie is just too gorgeous to keep hidden away. Pair your skirts and trousers with bras, bralettes or bodysuits to keep your look on trend this season. Perfect the look with a blazer or shirt layered over the lingerie.

Boux Avenue Millie Longline Bra

If you’re not quite sure about stepping outside in your everyday bra, we recommend investing in a longline one to still get in on the spring/summer fashion trend. This one from Boux Avenue comes in a gorgeous lavender shade with dainty 3D floral embroidery. It’s unpadded but the underband comes with boning to give the piece some structure.

6. Return of the Y2K

Probably one of the most exciting trends of the year, Y2K fashion is back and bigger than ever — which is probably great news for the nostalgic millennials out there. Y2K basically covers anything that was on-trend from the late '90s to the early 2000s. Some of our highlights include halter-neck tops, bootcut jeans and chunky trainers.

Fitted around the hips and waist but with a more relaxed style through the legs, low rise bootcut jeans are an iconic piece of Y2K fashion. The washed blue denim on this pair makes them perfect for summer.

7. Get your groove on with boho chic

Billowing skirts and vibrant patterns have been dominating the spring/summer fashion scene of late. These boho-inspired pieces are brilliantly easy to wear and emit effortlessly cool vibes. Expect to see retro designs and warm hues in stock more and more over the coming summer months.

ASOS DESIGN ruched waist detail midi dress with blouson sleeve

Made from a lightweight, dreamy chiffon, this bohemian-inspired dress comes in a mesmerising floral print. At the side, there is some subtle cut-out detailing which we're totally obsessed with. We particularly like its V-neck design, banded waist and voluminous sleeves.

8. Let’s take it low

Love it or loathe it, it looks like low-rise waists have made a comeback this year along with all the other pieces of iconic Y2K fashion. And the style is currently everywhere. We’ve been spotting low-rise jeans, hip-baring skirts and daringly low shorts on catwalks and shop windows alike.

If you’re not quite ready to say 'goodbye' to your comfy high-waisted jeans just yet, try opting for a soft pair of trousers like these. They have an elegant wide-leg design and an elasticated waistband that adds a comfy vibe to these vibrant trousers.

9. Pleats, please

A pleated skirt is an easy way to add some elegance to your look. Pleats give a piece that little extra bit of volume and can flow gorgeously as you move, thanks to their cut and shape. While currently on-trend, a pleated skirt can be a timeless and versatile addition to your wardrobe.

10. Stripe right

Stripes, in any shape or form, are hot right now. Whether you don something with large stripes, bold stripes or even zig-zag stripes, you will be on-trend. Our favourite pieces are ones that experiment with colours and even the direction of stripes.
