With each new fashion season, men’s fashion becomes more daring and innovative, breaking away from the repetitive rigidity of the past. And the spring-summer 2023 trends are no exception to this. Vibrant colors, sheer fabrics, and classic casual shoes make an expected return. 

What Trends to Wear This Season

Styles like layered denim and delicate crochet dominate catwalks, transforming garments into pieces for everyday dressing instead of being fit just for the runway. So it is time to refresh the wardrobe for the new season and for those daring enough to expand well beyond familiarity.

Crochet is a dominating trend in women’s fashion this year. And that influence has spilled over to the men’s side, creating pieces with delicate details in various designs. The versatility of these garments makes them a breeze to style, instantly elevating your look. 

Black crochet has been trendy in menswear as it offers boldness with a sense of intricacy, made to hold a magnificent structure. It might feel too daring for some to pull off, but styled with black tailored trousers and loafers gives you an incredibly chic evening look. 

Trench Coats

Although the trenchcoat’s origins can be traced back to the late 1800s, it has managed to withstand the test of time and maintain its status as a timeless garment. This year is no exception, as the elegant and well-structured coat continues to earn a place in any capsule wardrobe.

Regardless of the weather or occasion, the trenchcoat is a versatile piece that should not be overlooked in your wardrobe. If you have yet to add it to your collection, you are missing out on a convenient go-to option that can be worn anywhere and anytime.

Denim on Denim

Wearing denim on denim has always been a topic of debate, with some recalling the notorious head-to-toe denim look sported by Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. In the past decade, many designers have avoided this style, arguing that it’s possible to overdo it with denim.

However, double denim is back en vogue this season, demonstrating its enduring appeal. Many runway shows featured two-piece ensembles of the same denim wash, resulting in a coordinated and iconic appearance.

Relaxed-Fit Pants

In today’s fashion world, comfort is just as important as style. People are no longer willing to sacrifice their comfort for a good outfit. As a result, menswear has embraced the trend of relaxed fits and lightweight fabrics.

Rather than detracting from the overall style of pants, the relaxed fit emphasizes the garment’s versatility and wearability. Relaxed trousers are an excellent option for hot summer days thanks to breathable fabrics and ample width.

Floral Clothing

Nature has always found a way onto the runway every season; from reimagined floral designs to nature-inspired color palettes of greens and browns, elements of the natural world are never far from the latest trends. 

This year is no different, with Dior showcasing a garden-inspired menswear collection and Loewe going as far as to present a coat with grass spurting. While you don’t have to go this far, including the power of nature in your wardrobe with colors and designs will put you on the front foot of fashion. 

Oversized Fashions

An overwhelming theme in men’s and womenswear for spring 2023 is youthful nostalgia, with many prominent designers like Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana fully embracing this energy. 

Oversized gingham, bold primary colors, chunky bead necklaces, and sports fan t-shirts were all seen on runways, allowing us to reminisce about our adolescence through fashion. Acknowledging this sense of childhood reminds us that fashion is meant to be fun and that we are never too old to experiment and play dress-up. 

Savanna Chic Styles

The popular color palette for spring-summer 2023 can be summed up simply as Savanna chic. Hues of beige, sunset orange, and chestnut browns will lead the way, providing warm tones that pair nicely with patterned garments and wardrobe staples. 

Jorts

Jorts, or jeans shorts, have made a surprising return, whether you are ready for them. While many people have continued to wear them regardless of their popularity level, they are back on trend for 2023 and baggier than ever. 

The ideal pair of jorts are fitted yet big, baggy, and long. It is a confusing conflict when deciding on fit, but the resurgence of ‘dad style’ has brought these bad boys back into play. 

The Matching Bag

If you have one crossbody bag worn with nearly every outfit you own, it may be time to retire it. As seen on runways, accessorizing this season in menswear has moved from being a unique style choice to a vital focal point of an entire outfit. 

The bag you choose to have carries some importance. You might have to experiment with what feels best with many styles, colors, shapes, and sizes. But this practical and trendy addition can define your style.

The key is not to be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try new things, as this season’s trends are all about breaking away from the repetitive rigidity of the past. Whether you rock a matching bag or embrace the resurgence of jorts, there are plenty of ways to refresh your wardrobe and elevate your look. So why not have some fun and play dress-up this season?
