5 Exciting Trends To Look Out For In 2023

As one year comes to an end, pop culture talking heads try to predict what trends will come about in the next calendar year. Sometimes they’re right and sometimes they’re wrong. However, if you look at cultural trends as reflections of collective human behavior, they’re actually not all that hard to predict. So, in today’s guide, we are going to take a closer look at 5 exciting trends to look out for in 2023!

More Compact Homes

Tiny homes started becoming popular in the 2010s. They offered younger folks a way to access homeownership while also being better to the environment. Plus, compact homes often feed into the popular trend of being “quirky” and different. In any case, mortgage interest rates are continuing to rise, making ownership of traditional homes even harder for many Americans. So, you’re likely to see even more compact homes on your social media timeline this year. And if you’re getting ready to move into a home of any size, don’t forget to reach out to the experts at Black Tie Moving for help!

No More Shoelaces

While shoelaces will not completely cease to exist in 2023, they will become less common. This is because more people are turning to low-maintenance footwear that can be slipped on and off with ease. No more tying knots or getting your shoelaces caught on random objects. Instead, you can expect to see lots of closed-toed sandals this year!  

More Attention To Haircare

Skincare has been the focus of many people over the last couple of years (perhaps even the last few decades). The idea that one can make themselves look younger through proper skincare has been a common idea spread through traditional media and apps like TikTok. However, many people are coming to realize that their favorite celebs and influencers actually went under the knife to achieve their youthful appearance. Therefore, it stands to reason that more people will turn to haircare as their main beauty interest. 

No More “Straight To Cancellation” TV Shows

People who consume lots of TV shows on streaming platforms are getting tired of new series that get canceled after just one season. It makes it less appealing to get invested in a new series knowing that it can just be stopped with the stroke of an executive’s pen. Thus, for fear of losing viewers, streaming giants like Netflix and HBO are more likely to trim down on their new shows and instead invest in series for multiple seasons at a time.

More In-Person Socializing

COVID-19 really scared people away from face-to-face interactions. While that fear is still very real, many people are returning to the in-person socialization they enjoyed before the pandemic. This trend is likely to continue throughout 2023. This means you can expect to see more people enjoying concerts, festivals, and other public entertainment this year!
