Welcome to the exciting world of fashion forecasting! Today, we are thrilled to unveil the Stitch Fix 2023 Style Forecast, a comprehensive report that provides a glimpse into the future of fashion. Powered by billions of data points, insights from our expert stylists, and trend forecasters, this forecast goes beyond runway trends to showcase what's happening in real life.

Insights and Predictions: Understanding the Shifts in Fashion

As the leading retailer analyzing data from nearly four million clients, we have a unique advantage in understanding how people shop, live, and dress. One of the most significant shifts we've observed is the influence of the macro environment on shopping habits and fashion choices.

According to our data:

  • Three-quarters of Stitch Fix clients believe that the economy will impact their clothing shopping decisions.
  • 80% of Stitch Fix clients express a desire to be more thoughtful when shopping for clothes.
  • A whopping 90% of Stitch Fix clients prioritize quality over quantity.

These insights have led us to prioritize high-quality, versatile, and trend-proof clothing over fast fashion. We have identified a new concept called "The Intentional Wardrobe," which combines the Capsule Closet approach with personalization. It's not just about finding "the" perfect button-down; it's about finding your perfect button-down.

The Evolution of Workwear: From Business Comfort to 24/7 Dressing

As more of us return to the office, the line between workwear and weekend-wear continues to blur. Last year, we predicted the trend of Business Comfort, and in 2023, we anticipate a further evolution towards 24/7 Dressing. This trend embraces elevated essentials like tees, blazers for women, and polos, and leather sneakers for men.

Our data reveals:

  • Nearly one in three people would sacrifice a vacation day rather than return to formal workwear.
  • 76% of individuals prefer clothing that can be worn for both work and weekend activities.

The Power of TikTok in Shaping Trends

The impact of TikTok on fashion trends has been undeniable. Between 2020 and 2022, our clients referencing TikTok in Fix Request Notes increased by a staggering 85%, while Instagram mentions declined by 72%. This shift has accelerated trend cycles and created challenges for many individuals, particularly millennials, who strive to incorporate current styles in an age-appropriate manner.

Consider these statistics:

  • More than one-third of millennials struggle to incorporate current styles in a way that feels age-appropriate.
  • Almost half of millennials care about looking stylish and current but feel that trends are too youthful for them.
  • Four out of five Stitch Fix stylists agree that translating trends in an age-appropriate way is the biggest challenge for millennial clients.
