Patterns and Embellishments for Spring 2023

Go bold with spring apparel that’s patterned or embellished for 2023. We’ve put together your guide to Spring 2023 fashion picks that feature motifs, patterns, and embellishments. Keep reading to discover what we predict will be the most popular prints and the various ways to wear them:

Create a Romantic Look with Hearts

Whether you’re dressing for Valentine’s Day or a spring date, you can’t miss with a heart motif. The heart print is a classic that can look old-school or modern, depending on how you wear it. Go for preppy-chic with a heart-print polo shirt made from soft, sturdy Supima cotton. A women’s black polo with red hearts is an excellent possibility to consider for your wardrobe.

As a side note, Supima cotton is excellent for spring tops and other apparel pieces because it’s machine-washable and twice as strong as regular cotton. Its long-staple fiber also has excellent color-retention properties to prevent fading.

If you’re looking for a spring gift for a loved one, a pair of cozy slippers or slipper socks for women with a heart print is one idea to consider. You could match it with a fleece robe in a coordinating hue and tuck it into a colorfully wrapped gift box or bag for a special present.

Go Retro With Polka Dots

Another popular spring print that never fell out of fashion in the first place is the polka-dot. There are plenty of ways to wear polka dots, whether you opt for a polka-dot skirt with a women’s white blouse or a dotted top with jeans and boots.

If you’re planning to head to the beach for spring break, keep your look fresh with a polka-dot swimsuit. You can pair it with a cover-up dress in the same print if available or coordinate it with a solid-color rash-guard cover up that matches a color in the dotted print.

Wear Floral Motifs for Country Appeal

Florals are projected to be everywhere this spring. Whether you sport a floral tankini top with solid swim shorts at the beach or wear a floral dress with boots, you’ll be right on trend. Speaking of women’s dresses, warm spring days are a perfect opportunity for a floral-motif fit-and-flare dress. For a layered look you can wear to the office, slip on a lightweight cardigan sweater.

Women’s cardigan sweaters come in waist-length and long styles. Both pair well with a midi dress in the fit-and-flare style, or you can wear them with a sheath or shift dress. If you want a dressier shoe option, slip into your favorite heeled pumps in a springtime hue or wear flat dressy shoes.

Floral button-downs with women’s straight-leg jeans is a country-inspired look you can wear to most any casual occasion. Flannel shirts may be found in floral prints, which imparts a Western look while keeping you warm on cool days. You can layer flannels under women’s sweaters or leave them unbuttoned and wear one over a tee for a ’90s-inspired look.

Impart Glam With Sequins

Sequins are an easy way to dress up any outfit. You might carry a sequined purse with a casual jeans-and-tee combo for a touch of elegant contrast or choose shoes adorned with sequins to wear with skinny jeans and a tunic top.

When it comes to sparkles, glitter, sequins, and other dazzling embellishments, less is usually more. Keep your sequins to one piece, such as a top or bag, for example. Sequined dresses are appropriate for formal dances, weddings, and other black-tie events. If you do opt for a sequined formal gown, keep the rest of your look relatively simple with basic pumps that match your dress and minimal accessories.

Choose Fringe for Western Flair

Fringed pieces have a Western look that’s similar to the previously mentioned country style. You might wear a fringed scarf with a lightweight Supima cotton turtleneck and skinny jeans, or cozy up to a blanket shawl with fringed ends. Handbags, boots, and jackets are other apparel items where you might notice fringed embellishments this spring.

As with sequins, a little goes a long way. To prevent a dated look, keep your fringe to a single accent. If you wear a fringed jacket, choose a simple, unembellished pair of women’s boots. A fringed scarf or shawl can be paired with minimal jewelry pieces, such as a pair of classic hoop earrings, for example.

Maxi dresses for women work well with fringed accessories. Shawls and wraps with fringe can be draped in a variety of ways over a maxi dress or skirt to create an on-trend spring look that’s warm enough for chilly mornings.

Combining Prints and Patterns

Try combining different prints to create an eclectic spring style. One idea is to pair florals with pinstripes for a cottagecore look. The fringed embellishments we just talked about can be worn with country-inspired plaid, such as with a plaid flannel shirt or other types of button-downs.

Let your creativity loose this spring and find which patterns and embellishments welcome the season for you. Use our ideas as inspiration to create your own spring looks that match your aesthetic and style.
