The menswear wardrobe will be redesigned for the autumn/winter 2022-23. It will feature a variety of styles, including bright colors and simple staples, as well as cosy tailoring and classics that are retro-inspired. What is their commonality? All of them are focused on comfort and subtle elegance. We explored the top five trends for the winter season.

Comfortable tailoring

The formal wardrobe has been updated to be more approachable and comfortable. This outfit is designed to be more casual, relaxed, and easy-to-wear every day. You’ll find earthy tones mixed in with playful prints, motifs, and preppy details. The homewear wardrobe is a great source of inspiration, featuring classics like sweatpants and plush sweaters.

Outdoor appropriate

The outdoor wardrobe was designed for city life and is casually stylish for the season ahead. It’s all about mixing style and practicality, elegance with comfort, large-format fabrics to small. You’ll also see fabrics and textures that are inspired by nature, such as patchwork, embroidery, or exotic motifs. Hybrids will be featured in the collections, including suit trousers with tech-inspired elements and unstructured jackets. Menswear is designed to be practical and stylish throughout the season.

Brighten up!

Bright colours will be a staple in both menswear and ladieswear wardrobes in 2022. They can be used to make a variety of statement pieces from casual wear to formal wear. Vibrant colours will be used to make sporty fabrics, and warm knitted handles will celebrate energy. Red is a popular colour, energized wardrobes, and celebrating a return of action. However, we will also see pops in earthy colours like WGSN, Coloro’s Honeycomb and Jade hues.

Comfortable and practical everyday wear

The classic casual wardrobe staples are given a functional and cozy update. Fun knits are available in many colours and shapes, and can be overly saturated. However, utilitarian clothing is elevated by sharply-cut trousers and elegant chore jackets. It is important to combine the softness and cosiness of fleece handles with the practicality and utility of traditional workwear.

Retro inspiration

While heritage-style sneakers are not new, they have been popular for a while. Menswear is taking cues form traditional styles. Many classics are being reinterpreted in a modern manner while still paying homage to the past. On blazers, sweaters, and trousers, plaids and British-inspired checks will be used. The skiwear wardrobe will feature ’70s inspired pieces. We’ve seen a return to simple, uncomplicated cuts as well as primary colours.
