“Oscars were swept, swimsuit issues set alight, exciting new career phases entered…” The Kit reports that “even in a year saturated with Barbie, Beyoncé and Taylor, women over 50 dominated the cultural landscape with main character energy in 2023.”

From Ayo Edebiri’s workwear dungarees in “The Bear” to Lukas Mattson’s flamboyant Swedish streetwear in “Succession”, The Guardian looks back at the best TV style of 2023.

In a second installment, they also round up film’s biggest fashion moments in 2023. Now I’m curious to know what your favourite were!

Ket has been following Georgette of Grown And Curvy Woman (one of our YLF Outfit Bloggers, by the way): “So much fun, glamour, color, and joy!”

Runcarla thought this was fun: Tom and Lorenzo review TV and movie costumes from 2023. She adds: “I want Tom Hank’s trousers (‘hope embodied’ – per the article).”

Suz is loving the ‘Articles of Interest’ podcast, a show about what we wear: “This season has included everything from pointe shoes to prison uniforms! Runcarla might be especially interested in the episode on Hawaiian shirts.”

kkards loves the way Jamie walks through the Pantone colour of the year. She says: “Until I watched this I didn’t realize that they actually had whole color palettes of the year, with basics/classics and fashion colors. I also love the way she illustrates how to wear the colors, and shows examples.”

suntiger directs us to this post on fitting pointe shoes, that could help with regular shoes too.

Nuancedream found this history of the Barbour jacket, which has been gaining popularity in the US more recently, fascinating.
