“Utilitarian detailing infiltrated the majority of SS23 collections with oversized pockets and cargo styles,” says Holly Tenser, buying manager for ready-to-wear at British fashion boutique Browns. Rickie De Sole, women’s fashion director at Nordstrom, agrees. “We’re loving this idea of the ‘New Uniform’ — practical functionality and relaxed tailoring combined for a polished uniform of elevated basics with subtle Y2K details,” De Sole says. “Think: great cargo pants, poplin, shirting, soft suiting, and beyond.” This also includes spring’s go-to outerwear. “The leather jacket is a perennial favorite, and for spring we love the vintage-inspired moto jackets,” says Libby Page, market director at Net-A-Porter.
