what are the top work wardrobe fashion trends for women to know in 2023?
The start of a new year is often synonymous with change. New routines, goal setting or possibly even a sartorial shift for the year ahead.
And we can think of no better time than January for a wardrobe refresh. The cold, crisp days and fresh new crop of sweaters, boots and bags hitting the shelves make for an ideal time to reevaluate your closet. Not to mention, it’s the perfect time to align work attire with your 2023 career aspirations.
While many have predicted that work wardrobes will become more relaxed and casual, reflecting the past couple of years that we’ve spent in loungewear. Any C-suite exec (or those aiming to be) knows that timeless and sophisticated staples will always be in style. And what’s more relaxed than having the peace of mind that you have a trusty uniform – something that will always look polished no matter how busy you are in the morning?
Ahead, we’re sharing 12 work wardrobe trends in designer fashion for 2023 – information for Boss Women at every stage of professional life. We promise there are some actionable ideas here for you, whether you’re dreaming of being invited to Davos, or finishing your speech before boarding your flight to Switzerland.
