Springtime has finally arrived, and with it, a new Gentleman’s Lookbook this 2023! A man’s style is always in flux, and each new year brings surprises for the fashion-forward gentlemen among us.
First up, let’s talk about colors. This spring, the trend is all about bold, bright hues that make a statement. Think bright blues, oranges, and yellows, as well as pastel pinks and greens. These colors can be incorporated into your wardrobe in a number of ways, from bold suits to statement accessories.
In 2023, gentlemen are free to explore their inner selves – fashion is far more overpowering and unrestricted than any year that has come before. You might find eclectic prints working their way into your wardrobe, western wear accents, lots of denim and even cargo-style pants!
As a gentleman, these out-there trends can still work with a formal life. Allow us to inspire your look this 2023 with clothing that is sure to strike at the heart of Spring fashion.
For a more casual look, try pairing a bright polo shirt with khaki chinos or light-wash denim jeans. Alternatively, opt for a brightly colored blazer over a classic white shirt and navy trousers for a more formal look.
Another trend that’s big this spring is patterned fabrics. From bold checks to subtle stripes, there’s a pattern to suit every style. A checked blazer paired with plain trousers or jeans is a great way to add interest to a casual outfit, while a patterned shirt can add a pop of color and pattern to a suit.
When it comes to footwear, this season is all about loafers and sneakers. Loafers in bright colors or with interesting detailing, such as tassels or woven leather, are a great choice for a dressier look. Sneakers in bold hues or with eye-catching prints are perfect for more casual outfits.
Accessories are also key this spring. A colorful silk pocket square or a statement tie can add interest to a plain suit, while a patterned scarf can elevate a casual outfit. A classic leather watch is always a stylish addition to any outfit, and this season, oversized aviator sunglasses are a must-have accessory.
In terms of fabrics, lightweight materials such as linen and cotton are perfect for spring. A linen suit in a light color is a great choice for a formal event, while a cotton blazer paired with jeans is perfect for a more casual occasion.
Top of Form
Look to leather
This year, leather is making a powerful resurgence in the form of the biker aesthetic. Brands like Prada and Alyx have been marching leather outfits down their runways throughout the season, and everything from racing jackets to leather pants are returning to wardrobes in 2023 as a result!
As a lover of gentlemanly fashion, you’re probably wondering how leather can complement your current wardrobe at all. Fortunately, leather is easy to elevate to a more formal style!
First, invest in shirts for men from a reputable brand like T.M Lewin. Then, pair this shirt with a leather vest or jacket. Combined with the pressed shirt, you can level up this biker look to something of a corporate-standard.
Don’t forget about denim
As practical and hard-wearing as ever, denim remains a viable choice for any outfit. This Spring, denim has once more graced the fashion shows of Fendi and Y/Project, yet in a new and innovative way.
Denim-on-denim has come back into our lives in a whirlwind of high fashion couture, and this can – surprisingly! – be compressed into a gentleman’s wardrobe, too.
Denim jeans in dark shades like indigo are simple to bring into a gentleman’s style, combined with a classic shirt-and-blazer. These are the best elements of a smart-casual look all in one.
If you’re particularly brave, a dark denim jacket and formal shirt paired with denim jeans could make a formidable outfit.
Embrace the Wild West
‘Wild West’ clothing, popularised by American cowboys, has experienced a striking return to the fashion world in 2023. Revised and renewed to keep up with our modernising times, cowboy boots, Western shirts and chaps are everywhere! Still, one question remains: how do you bring the Wild West into a gentleman’s wardrobe?
We have the answer.
Bold belt buckles, boots and a Western-style shirt are easily added to the usual components of a men’s suit – smart blazer, formal shirt and tailored pants, as an example. All you have to do is switch out your usual belt or shirt, and commit to the Wild West look!
Rest assured, you can still maintain the upstanding look of a gentleman, with a little added fun.
In conclusion, the key to nailing the Gentleman’s Spring Lookbook 2023 is all about bold colors, interesting patterns, and carefully chosen accessories. Whether you’re dressing for a formal event or a casual day out, there are plenty of stylish options to choose from this season. So get ready to embrace the sunshine and step out in style!
