Winter 2023 Trends: Suit design ideas to look out for!

Are you looking forward to cooler days? Discover the latest trends in men's fashion for Fall/Winter 2023! We’ve seen timeless wardrobe essentials like long coats, tailored blazers, and suits make a powerful comeback. However, the landscape of men's fashion has always transcended traditional norms. It’s time to embrace a delightful shift towards non-conformist styles and shapes. In this article, we link Dormeuil's suit fabric collections - Forever Green, 15 Point 7, Cashmere, and Millennial® Genesis - to current and upcoming trends for the winter. Embodying the current evolution of tailoring, while preserving our signature quality and understated elegance, Dormeuil suit fabric designs cater to the style-conscious individuals who refuse to compromise on excellence. Join us as we delve into how our new bunches perfectly encapsulate the key menswear trends of 2023.

Mixing and Matching 

Suit design ideas also revolve around the art of pairing fabrics, textures and colours. Explore the art of mixing and matching by pairing a well-tailored jacket with trousers that fit well without being cut from the exact same fabric. This exercise requires experience and skill to achieve a harmonious look that will prompt approving nods. That said, practice makes perfect!

A few useful tips: 

  • Stick to timeless menswear colours. 
  • Darker bottoms will help jackets stand out better. 
  • Keep accessories interesting without letting them take over the show. 

This way, you will break the rigidity of a traditional suit with gusto, offering a refreshing and enjoyable twist to your usual style. Why not begin with a high-quality navy blazer? This key piece, paired with sharply cut trousers will help you unlock a world of versatile and stylish outfit possibilities. Or perhaps 2023 might just be the year to find a timeless brown suit! Many trend analysts are willing to put their money down on this colour becoming a stylish staple in contemporary suits for men.

Forever Green displays a wide array of colours for all your creative suit design ideas, from elegant pink, orange, almond green, and purple to timeless white, grey, and beige velvet options for the more classic tastes. 

In crafting Dormeuil’s suit fabric collections, we have always had an eye for colour. Our stylists have studied Fall/Winter 2023 trends and what fabrics do high end designers use to offer stunning combinations in a range of colours and textures. Forever Green’s thoughtfully curated combinations of jackets and trousers reflects Dormeuil’s enthusiastic take on mixing and matching. Every suit lover will find something, from plain weaves to velvet corduroy woven from sustainable cotton, providing a more luxurious option.

Shape shifting looks

While the suit decidedly remains a key sartorial choice this season, it has taken on new proportions. Oversized cuts seem to be all the rage, providing ample range of movement and comfort. Suit design ideas are focusing on volume and length: double breasted jackets extend beyond customary shoulder cuts, only to stop at mid-thigh level. At shoulder level, big collars turned heads at men’s Fashion Week. Big collars - “colossal” according to British GQ - spilling out over outerwear like a time-tested and trend-immune trench coat. Bear in mind that oversized tailoring is not for the faint hearted, only seasoned tailors will know how to pull off the right proportions!

Drawing a more minimalist silhouette, designers at Kenzo and Vuitton have eliminated superfluous elements in men's suit design. Bianca Saunders bid farewell to front pockets, while Kenzo got rid of lapels altogether, ushering in a new era of suit aesthetics.

Moving below the belt, trousers are letting loose. Wider legs, lower sitting cuts, men are slouching with style.Take a break from straight and short legged pieces this winter and give your body space to find comfort, but luxuriously so.

The classic suit is a reassuring piece in a wardrobe, always there for big moments but also days with extra support needed. One should possess a suit for all occasions. A good suit is understated but its choice of fabric and fit speaks volumes.

Onto brighter things, the influence of pop culture spreads a delightful splash of colour onto sharp silhouettes, and beautifully reflected in our collection. For a change of tune and a more daring take on life, a vibrant set will uplift anyone’s wardrobe. Give pastels a try, or opt for a deep jewel-like burgundy or emerald dashes of colour. 

Despite suits clearly being here to stay, the return of the overcoat, seen at Dolce and Gabbana, Ami and Saint Laurent, calls for attention by giving the wearer an air of grandeur. One cannot ignore a  cloak-like silhouette's theatrical qualities. Coupled with this trend,  solid and vibrant hues galvanise large volume and outlandish shapes. This winter, Cashmere collection infuses Dormeuil’s coat fabric selection with lots of play and resolutely modern hues. We can’t think of a better way to brighten the monotony of greyer days to come!

Forever responsible 

Our Forever Green collection affirms our unwavering commitment to sustainable fabric development. We’ve incorporated responsibly produced wool and sustainable cotton in harmony with our eco-conscious vision and commitments. As an emblematic colour for Dormeuil, green resonates with our will to produce everlasting textiles imbued with youthfulness.

Drawing from our tradition of excellence, we can proudly declare: "Dormeuil, green for 180 years." Our collections are a testament to our heritage and dedication to environmentally responsible craftsmanship.

This winter, whether to stay warm indoors or to wander the great outdoors, step out with excellent tailoring with that extra contemporary flair. When suit design ideas get a bit out of hand on the runway, a classic suit is a wise and unwavering choice. Choose the fabric that will set it apart and let your personality shine through.
