Pinterest Predicts: what trends will inspire audiences in 2023?


What do vitamin seaweed, Romcom core and non-alcoholic drinks have in common? Pinterest reckons they’re the trends consumers will be chasing in 2023.

Pinterest is an image-sharing and social media platform that allows users to discover recipes, home ideas, style and other creative ideas, and collate them as ‘Pins’ on ‘Pinboards’ of inspiration. These Pins can also link back to websites, converting inspiration into traffic and sales.

Over 400 million people come to Pinterest each month, according to the platform. Pinterest has analysed the content those people have been searching to gauge the top trends that will emerge or continue to grow in 2023.

‘Hipstoric’ homes and apothecary aesthetics might sound a little out there, but Pinterest has been right before. Black Swan Data for Pinterest found that for the last three years eight out of 10 of its predictions came true. 

What trends does the platform think will colour our wardrobes, homes, celebrations and more in 2023?
