You were probably not looking for fall & winter 2022/2023 fashion trends today.

My friends at Frump Fighters, on the other hand, make it their mission to assist you navigate the fashion world and simply uncover the bright, exciting new products that can help you step up your wardrobe.

While they strive to focus on traditional styles that will last for many years without looking outmoded, adding seasonal trends into your wardrobe is a simple method to prevent looking “frumpy.”

It helps to refresh and update your appearance, reducing the risk of “falling behind” or seeming “dated.” Nobody desires that!

It can take time to figure out what casual and chic fashions are in popularity each season (that are also kid-friendly).

Instead, by following their list of mom-friendly trends for each season, you may feel completely informed and find exactly what you need (or opt to avoid) in a quick trip to Target, Wal-Mart, or while lounging on your couch window shopping Amazon.

They help you feel good about what you wear, what you buy, and what you don’t buy.

Your confidence in buying and dressing will increase when you grasp what’s “in style.”

These current trends were chosen, and others were not because they were 1) pricey, 2) not modest/classy, or 3) not favorable to motherhood!

Fashion Trend #1: All Shades of Pinks

This is not my fave fashion trend. Pink is not my favorite color, so I may be biased. I have a fair olive complexion and have yet to discover a pink that suits me.

There are many different hues of pink available, but I’m seeing a lot of warmer tones like mauves and burgundies.

Fashion Trend #2: Leopard

This print has a love/hate relationship, but we’ve seen it trend for several years now! It appears to be less this year than prior seasons, but it is still going strong!

Animal print can be a terrific way to bring interest to simple, sophisticated fashions on a small scale.

One of the accessories in the Frump Fighters 4th Edition of the Women’s Essentials Style Guide is a dark printed scarf, and leopard is a terrific alternative! The same is true for print flats!

Fashion Trend #3: Ditsy Florals

Floral has never left our trend updates, in my opinion! It constantly comes back in some shape or another.

Blooms have tended to be on a smaller scale in recent seasons (ditsy florals!). They can be found in practically any wardrobe piece!

Fashion Trend #4: Earth Tones

Earth tones are still popular in almost every type of clothing.
A wide range of earthy colors can be found in many of our other “particular style” trends.

It’s always refreshing to see a basic neutral trend!

Fashion Trend #5: Rib Knit

Rib knit is just that. A soft knit fabric with “ribs” or elevated vertical stripes running through it.

This fabric is great for basic blouses, tees, and skirts. They serve as a solid foundation, and the ribs offer some texture!

Fashion Trend #6: Rust

For the second fall/winter season in a row, I’d nearly say this is THE most popular hue.

We noticed that the rust varies in how orange or red it is, so if you know your color season and want to embrace this trend, pay attention to the shade you desire.

I’ll be exploring more of the trends we’re seeing through out the month. Will you try any of these? Let me know which one is your favorite.
