7 Spring/Summer 2023 Menswear Trends That Will Lead You to Your Tribe

Spring 2023 Menswear has come and gone, but it left some finding a newfound home with other trend-knowing individuals who love and respect the fashion industry. Like the great classic film, The Warriors, based on the book by Sol Yurick, this season left me thinking of the colors, silhouettes, and themes that each crew–– or designer– represented and how they each had a story through their extraordinary style and self-expression.

This time around, designers have not only redefined classic silhouettes but continue to blur the lines between gender and what it means to wear menswear. Designers like Thom Browne and Guram Gvasalia at VTMNTS take menswear to new heights with innovative designs and cultural references that give tribe–– or community–like attire. 

Short-hems went higher, and black suits were transformed but still effortless in style, as the likes of Craig Green and Phipps shared their view that speaks to a particular “Warrior” this season.

Whatever piece you gravitate towards, below is the necessary detail to assist you in finding your like-minded tribe of people or group of warriors.

Here are the 7 Spring/Summer 2023 Menswear trends that will lead you to your tribe.

Men-In-Black (Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Craig Green, Rick Owens, John Elliott)

The black suit always will find itself at the forefront of any menswear collection––and it’s no different this season. This crew is for you if you enjoy refinement while simultaneously adding a sense of individuality. Redefine the black suit by wearing this throughout the day, representing your tribe as you take the timeless or avant-garde approach this season.

Neutral Ninjas (Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Craig Green, Officine Générale, Isabel Marant)

Only the chosen few can take on this earthy shade, and if you wear it right, you may be able to alter the perception of menswear. Designers like Craig Green, Fendi, and Dolce & Gabbana gave us various reasons to want to join the Neutral Ninja takeover that’s about to happen.

The Tank Toppers (Versace, Jacquemus, Casablanca, Dolce & Gabbana, Lazoschmidl).

The Tank Toppers have a particular mission. They find ways to reinvent the tank for men who like to show arms and style it in relaxed ways. Maybe it’s a matching set like Dolce & Gabbana or an exposed chest like Jacquemus; the tank will only be an uncovered expression that refuses to be layered over this season.

Mini-Morphing Rangers (Thom Browne, Prada, Phipps, Robyn Lynch, Alled-Martinez)

Designers are raising men’s hems to new heights––or are men requesting to show more legs? Phipps gave us a pink and laid-back denim moment, while Thom Browne gave us a jockstrap exposed villain, perhaps? Either way, a group of men and androgynous individuals would join the Mini-Morphing Rangers any day.

Explosive Color Clique (Pigalle, Children of the Discordance, Lukhanyo Mdingi, Études, Louis Vuitton)

Some people aren’t afraid to be bold and stand out. Designers at houses like Lukhanyo Mdingi, Études, and Louis Vuitton proved that by blending and bending colors to create the Explosive Color Clique, they would encourage a group of people to carry color mixing to the next level fearlessly.

The Silver Lining Crew (Doublet, Wales Bonner, VTMNTS, Bianca Saunders, Craig Green)

Silver––or metallics–either way, it keeps finding a home in the imaginative minds of designers this season. VTMNTS stands supreme this season, but Bianca Saunders and Wales Bonner also understood the assignment. Spring 2023 will frankly be the year of The Silver Lining Crew, and they have no problem being the reflection of light in the room.

Wide Brim Clan (4SDesigns, MSGM, Dior Men, Moschino, Dsquared2)

There is something sophisticated and relaxed about a man in a wide hat. Kim Jones at Dior Men paired a wide brim with a soft and sporty tailored look that was fresh and clean, while twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten at Dsquared2 went the carefree and eclectic route by mixing layers and prints. Other designers also expressed that aura of mystique, by incorporating a variety of wide hat forms that members of the Wide Brim Clan will enjoy and find life in.
