5 Gender Neutral Trends from the Dior Runway That Will Inform the Next Cycle of Streetwear

Skater shorts you can wear to a wedding, sequin hoodies and the return of Diddy’s shiny suits.

Dior took over Venice Beach, California for its Resort 2023 collection aptly titled “California Couture.” Comprised of relaxed suiting and red carpet-ready hoodies, the collection perfectly encompassed Southern California’s unique approach to high/low dressing. Select items were created in collaboration with ERL, an outerwear-driven label most known for infusing a West Coast aesthetic into topstitched puffers and ski-inspired gear.

Whether intentional or not, the offering presented a bevy of gender neutral trends and if Kim Jones‘ resume is any indication, we expect to see the collection’s influence across the streetwear landscape. Read on for five standout trends from the runway.

Shimmering Knits

Glittery knits and sequin hoodies bridge the gap between day and night dressing, a perfect embodiment of the “California Couture” inspiration and a nod to a city that has a relaxed approach to formal dress.

Bags for All

Dior appealed to minimalists and maximalists with its accessory offering, with the iconic saddle bag returning in a variety of sizes from micro minis to moderate crossbodies. Elsewhere oversized totes with ERL’s signature topstitching walked the runway as an elevated “work bag” option.

Skater Shorts

Though “hoochie daddy shorts” dominate TikTok, trend analysts have predicted a return of “jorts” (aka jean shorts) for some time. Dior x ERL’s approach was one part basketball short, one part cropped trouser — resulting in a length that pairs nicely with sneakers and heels alike.

Pink Parade

As hot pink continues to replace last year’s “Bottega green,” the hue looked fresher than ever interpreted as quilted pants, billowy cardigans and co-branded sweaters.

SoCal Suits

The collection masterfully encompassed Angelenos’ approach to black tie, offering a baggier cut that makes the streamlined silhouettes on the red carpet feel restrictive and dated. Dior’s suits came drenched in of-the-moment pastels and all the bravado of Diddy’s shiny suit era.
