Ed Ruiz here, and surprise, suprise... it's time to talk suits! (pretends to be shocked)
As a dapper man myself and one that always encourages men to embrace the power of suits, I'm always on the lookout for the latest suit trends, and let me tell you, 2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year for classic menswear.
Whether you're looking to upgrade your office wardrobe or you have a special event coming up, there's a suit trend out there for everyone.
In this post, we'll dive into the top men's suit trends for 2023, with plenty of tips on how to wear them and where to find them.
Granted, many of these trends are tainted by my own biases and preferences in suit styles. Just being completely honest here.
So having said that, please sit back, relax, and get ready to suit up in style!
The Power Suit is Back
The power suit is back, and it's here to stay!
In 2023, men's suits are all about making a statement with bold, strong lines and commanding presence.
Think high-rise trousers, sharp lapels, and shoulder pads that accentuate your shoulders and give you an unmistakable silhouette.
This trend is perfect for the modern man who wants to exude confidence and assertiveness in his professional and personal life.
A well-tailored power suit can make you feel like a million bucks, and it's sure to turn heads wherever you go.
But don't let the term "power suit" intimidate you - I know the term may sounds a bit too strong. This trend is all about making the suit work for you and your individual style.
Whether you prefer a classic, timeless look or a more modern take on the power suit, there are plenty of options to choose from.
So, gentlemen, it's time to channel your inner boss and embrace the power suit trend.
Whether you're headed to the boardroom or a night out on the town, a well-tailored suit is sure to make a lasting impression and help you feel your absolute best.
Power up and elevate your style this 2023!
Go Bold with Colors and Patterns
Gone are the days of boring and monochromatic suits and I couldn't be happier about it!
In 2023, the trend is all about going bold with colors and patterns.
The men's style world has taken notice of the need for self-expression and individuality, and suits are no exception.
Honestly, why would they be?
We are talking about bright and vibrant colors like electric blue, rich burgundy, and deep forest green.
And let's not forget about patterns: plaid, houndstooth, and windowpane checks are all over the place in the dapper men's style sphere this year.
Now, I know what you may be thinking, "Ed, how can I pull off such bold choices?"
Fear not, my friend. The key is to keep it balanced.
If you opt for a bold color or pattern, keep the rest of your outfit simple and understated.
You can pair a bold suit with a white dress shirt and classic black dress shoes and you'll be both bold and elegant.
Remember, bold choices require confidence, so if you feel like it's too much, start small and work your way up.
Maybe start with a patterned tie or pocket square and work your way up to a full patterned suit.
The goal is to have fun with your suit style and express yourself in a way that makes you feel confident and powerful.
Pro-tip: When it comes to bold colors, make sure to choose a hue that complements your skin tone. For example, if you have a warm skin tone, opt for a suit in a warm color like camel or rust. If you have a cooler skin tone, choose a suit in a cool color like navy or gray.
In summary, don't be afraid to take risks and go bold with colors and patterns this year.
Just remember to keep it balanced and have fun with your style.
You never know, a bold suit could be the key to landing that dream job with your style choices or impressing that special someone.
Classic With a Modern Twist
While bold colors and patterns may be popular, it's important not to forget the timeless appeal of classic suits.
This year, we're seeing a modern twist on the classic suit with updated fabrics, cuts, and accessories.
One of the biggest trends is the return of the double-breasted suit.
This style has a classic, old-school look that exudes confidence and sophistication.
The double-breasted suit has been updated with a slimmer cut, making it more versatile for different body types.
Pair it with a simple white shirt and a bold tie for a timeless yet modern look.

Another trend for 2023 is the use of textured fabrics, such as herringbone or tweed.
These fabrics add depth and interest to a suit, and can be worn in both formal and casual settings.
You can choose to pair a textured suit with a solid-colored shirt and tie for a classic yet modern look.
As with many things in life, it all comes down to finding the perfect balance.
Finally, accessories can make or break a suit.
This year, we're seeing a return to classic accessories such as pocket squares and tie bars.
These small details can add a touch of elegance to any outfit. For a modern twist, try mixing and matching different patterns and textures.
Overall, the classic suit with a modern twist is a great choice for any occasion. It's timeless, versatile, and exudes confidence.
With updated fabrics, cuts, and accessories, there's never been a better time to rock a classic suit... with a modern twist.
Fabrics and Texture Trends for Suits
As important as the color and fit of your suit are, the right fabric and texture can make all the difference when it comes to style and most importantly, comfort.
This year, we are seeing a shift towards fabrics and textures that are both functional and stylish.
Beyond the timeless wool, which truly never goes out of style, here are a few of the top trends to watch out for:
Tweed is Making a Comeback
Tweed, a rough woolen fabric, is making a strong comeback in the dapper men's fashion world. It’s a perfect fabric for the colder months, providing both warmth and style. Not only is it a classic choice, but it’s also versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Corduroy is the New Casual
Corduroy is another fabric that’s making a big comeback this year. It’s soft, warm, and provides a great texture that adds depth to any outfit. Corduroy suits can be dressed up with a tie or dressed down with a casual shirt or sweater.
Linen and Cotton Blend
For those looking for a breathable and lightweight suit, the linen and cotton blend is the perfect choice. This blend offers a comfortable fit while still looking stylish. The fabric is ideal for summer weddings or any event held in warmer weather.
Velvet is Here to Stay
Velvet is another texture that continues to be popular this year. It’s a luxurious and versatile fabric that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Velvet suits are perfect for winter events or for those who want to add an extra touch of luxury to their wardrobe.
Whether you prefer a classic wool suit or a more casual corduroy option, there’s a fabric and texture trend for every sharp style-inclined man in 2023.
