Men’s Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2023-2024 has concluded, and Vogue is here to unveil the men’s fashion trends that will define the season. While Summer 2023 promises a sexy and nostalgic vibe, winter foresees a return to the basics, with a completely revamped classic wardrobe and the emergence of a new formality.
What are the men’s fashion trends for Fall/Winter 2023-2024?
Feminine-inspired outfits are revealing skin, and trends spotted on celebrities like Timothée Chalamet, Harry Styles, and Brad Pitt throughout the year are solidifying: from grunge-style skirts and preppy looks to revisited collars and biker impulses. As for colors, monochrome is the go-to, with burgundy and shades of brown leading the way. Let’s delve into the standout male trends to emulate this season.
A signature of Johnny Depp in the 1990s, modernized by personalities like Machine Gun Kelly, the grunge aesthetic is making a comeback, steadily influencing this season’s designer inspirations. Think faded denim, layering, and plaid patterns.
The shirt collar is an essential detail: Dior Men, Prada, and Wales Bonner have made it their motif with oversized models reminiscent of John Travolta‘s iconic look in Saturday Night Fever.
What better than a cozy beanie to combat dropping temperatures? Spotted at Gucci, Fendi, and Bode.
The suit is reimagined in its most minimal form, emphasizing fitted jackets and pleated trousers that elongate the silhouette. The focus on comfort adds a desirable touch.
Perhaps one of the boldest trends: this season, designers are embracing asymmetry with one-shoulder tops, a detail typically seen on female silhouettes, adding a touch of sexiness.
Skirts (with a twist)
You can’t miss it, especially with the resurgence of iconic 2000s trends: the skirt worn over trousers, a hallmark of the y2k tacky-chic era, is making its way into men’s fashion. Think plaid at Etro, denim at Marine Serre, and an extension of a knitted sweater at Kenzo.
In 2023, fashion continues to explore facets of the uniform: the jumpsuit, also known as a boilersuit, has been reimagined by top houses and designers as a new male staple.
A burst of bordeaux
The standout color of the season? Bordeaux, showcased in head-to-toe looks at Martine Rose, Louis Vuitton, and Dior Men. Trust us; it’s set to dethrone black.
Racing jackets, leather gloves, and protective trousers: the biker aesthetic is speeding into men’s fashion, solidifying its fashion status at Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Dsquared. It’s likely to become as significant as the streetwear trend.
In line with the resurgence of the varsity jacket, this sportswear style from the American upper class of the 1950s tops the 2023 trend list. Key pieces? Long-sleeved polos, cardigans, and shoulder-draped sweaters.
Shades of brown
There are three rules for choosing the perfect coat next winter: it should be effortless, very long, and brown!
Cargo pants are determined to maintain their essential status in 2023. Moreover, the entire military aesthetic vocabulary has blossomed on the runways this season, from camouflage prints to khaki green.
In fashion, comfort is key! Designers like Jonathan Anderson for his eponymous label and Loewe, as well as Bianca Saunders, understand this. Hence, their collections ride the leisurewear wave, emphasizing pajama pants and oversized knits.
