The fall/winter 2023 runways are filled with striking trends that blend the fashion classics with contemporary flair. From the timeless allure of leather to the airy comfort of mesh, this season's trends are all about embracing boldness while staying true to sophistication. Let's break down the season's top five trends, all available now at Very Ashley! 

1. Luxurious Leather

Leather is BACK! This versatile material dominates the runways, from sleek leather jackets to tailored trousers, skirts, and even dresses. Designers have taken the classic leather look to new heights by experimenting with colors, textures, and silhouettes. You can never go wrong with a black leather skirt, like the Pleats & Leather Midi Skirt from Very Ashley ($$69.99). It's the most timeless piece and will always stay in style. We also have a leather corset top designed by Aishae Couture ($208), which pushes the trend forward with a super low neckline and reptile print. Perfect for a special evening out on the town. 

2. Alluring Mesh and Timeless Blazers

Mesh fabrics have emerged as a surprising yet delightful fall/winter 2023 trend. Delicate and translucent, these see-through materials add an element of intrigue and sensuality to any outfit. The Pants of Pearls and Blazer Set ($139) at Very Ashley are the perfect look for such a trend. The mesh pants are embellished with delicate pearls, and the blazer jacket elevates the sultry look with a more sophisticated vibe. 

4. Oversized and Cozy Outerwear

As the temperature drops, fashion enthusiasts can wrap themselves in the comforting warmth of oversize outerwear. One popular trend is the Teddy Coat. Throw this over your shoulders, and you'll feel the warmth of a life-size teddy bear on your shoulders. The Bundle Up Teddy Coat by Talia Addie is available now at Very Ashley for just $190! The milk chocolate coat will help keep the winter chill at bay while remaining on-trend. 

5. Ravishing Red that Makes a Passionate Statement

Bold, passionate, and unapologetically attention-grabbing, red is prevalent in the fall/winter 2023 palette. From head-to-toe crimson ensembles to accent pieces that demand attention, red exudes confidence and power. The Red Wrap Blazer Dress ($145) is a cute red dress, perfect for cocktail hour, date night, or any place where being fashionable is preferred.
