Mood's Spring 2023 Fabric Forecast

Posted on January 16, 2023 by Stephanie Triplett

As spring approaches, it introduces many new things, including longer days, fresh styles, and fabrics to add to our wardrobe rotations. Take a look at Mood’s Spring Fabric Forecast to prepare for the romantic touches, textured must-haves, and natural wonders of fabric you need to get your hands on to make the most of your spring designs.


Embrace the romance that lace fabric brings about, and not just any lace, specifically intricate lace. Pieces, including lace skirts and lingerie bodysuits, combine a look of innocence laced with romance inspired by former trends, all leading to regency and cottagecore fashion influences. Soft pastels and neutral colors accompany lace for spring.


Layers of tulle are often all we know, yet the simplicity of a sheer tulle mini dress is appealing and understated. Let go of the cinderella gown expectation that tulle is only for special occasions. It’s nice and breezy and also perfect for creating layered looks.


A fabric rooted and grounded in nature, linen is an all-star fabric, especially for warm weather. The natural texture of linen will continue to gain momentum. The linen blazer set is a key outfit for spring. A set complete with a tie top, wide-leg trousers, and a blazer lends itself to a complete knockout look, along with the potential to pair each piece with other outfits.


The fabric wearing many hats this spring: Pleated fabric, indeed. Soft pleats are found in romantic styles from pleats influenced by the country club attire and those uniforms worn at prep schools. The micro pleats popular for winter will live on with the addition of soft pleats tailored to capture the feminine essence.


Performance fabrics lean into the preppy tennis-inspired styles like exercise skorts and dresses that will continue to trend this spring. Look for bright colors and minimalist-inspired styles perfect for the tennis courts or a quick trip to the market post-workout.

French Terry

Comfort plays a huge role in the way we dress more than ever, and french terry helps carry that out. Expect swim coverups and two-piece boxy shorts and top sets for summer made with french terry to continue. It’s a warm weather favorite for a reason: Its water-absorbing abilities are unmatched. Who would have thought terry swim coverups would reign once again? Not me, but I love the nostalgia that it brings.

Fringe Trim

As natural materials continue to grow in popularity, fringe and tassels are, too. Spring runways displayed fringe pieces in a new light, displaying allover fringe dresses with an allover woven fringe look and accessories like leather look fringe handbags.

Beaded Trim

The current focus on resale and vintage pieces gives beaded fabric and trims a moment to shine. Beading and faux pearls create texture and immediately elevate an item, so if you find yourself with a beaded vintage item, hold it close, and if you plan to make something worthy of fawning over, opt for beads and faux pearls for a look with a ton of appeal.

Enjoy the winter moments while looking to spring fashion and all the inviting colors and fabrics it has to offer. This upcoming season celebrates nature and femininity, which spring does so well. If cold temps have you feeling down, don’t fret because trends with lots of movement and texture are on their way.
