The steep tops were especially popular last year, where designers wanted to experiment with the form using finer materials and often prints in the spring/summer season. The style can be seen in cropped tops, t-shirts and button-down shirts, as well as in plain colors, colored quilted styles, or woven designs. Some subsequent iterations of the season also include individual tweaks or deflections, adding dynamic texture, custom look, and multiple fit options. In addition, this type of clothing was also seen in the men’s collections of the SS23 season, in which the designers wanted to cross the boundaries of the genre.
Why do you want it?
This type of clothing can be considered as an extension of the trend of lingerie for outdoor use, which saw how bras, shirts and pants became suitable clothes to accompany this type of clothing in today’s base. As temperatures rise, consumers begin to look for flattering and cooling clothing, and this provides ample opportunity for clothing experimentation, even in the hottest environment. The material is particularly appealing to women because it is taken for granted because it offers the possibility of washing and playing with it to suit one’s own taste.
Where did we see her?
Transparency is a distinct trend among the SS23 collections, explored in various aspects: from transparent materials to lacy applications and fishing gear. For Laquan Smith, sheer fabrics were a staple throughout the line, where colors stood out when applied to different silhouettes. Those who wanted to break the gender norms in male projects were Celine, Zegna, Wooyoungmi and Theophilio who opted for mesh tops. Meanwhile, Dolce & Gabbana and Ferragamo cut elegant and feminine materials that wrapped the body in distinctive shapes.
How to wear it?
The steep tops allow you to experiment a lot with your shape, through the multiple possibilities of propagation that can give many good looks. For women, it is best to use them alone, matching the color of the top with a simple bra. For everyday wear, you can wear it with jeans and high boots, or add a skirt and fringe accessories for an easy evening look. The dress can be part of a casual look, as well as with blazers, silk shirts and skirts, providing depth and variety to the design.
Although from the first customers see that the dress also incorporates the boldness of their wardrobe, the SS23 trends give it many forms and that attracts a wide group of consumers. A variety of clothing can be worn, and consumers will be more tempted to experiment with looks as the warmer seasons approach.
