Tips For Men of Fashion 2023

Men in the UK care about fashion. Men who want to look like they are successful, stylish, and chic understand the importance of buying quality items and building their wardrobes around those pieces. In this article, we will give you a few tips for dressing like a lotto winner without blowing your budget. 

Essentials for 2023

Every year there are a few trending items men must add to their wardrobes to look current. According to GQ Magazine, the following pieces are must-haves for this year. Keep in mind that quality items you already own can be tailored and updated to keep them up-to-date.

  • No-sleeve sweater

    • This is a kickback to the ’90s. A nice sweater without sleeves can be worn with a button-down shirt for a business lunch or over a boxy tee for a more casual look.

  • Loose Cargo Pants

    • Cargo pants are back. Go with loose-fitting pants with lots of pockets. 

  • Watch

    • A nice watch is a must-have. However, stay away from top-of-the-line designer watches. Instead, go for a Seiko 5 Series. They are available on Amazon in the $200 range. This watch is beautiful, stylish, and affordable. 

  • Open-collar shirt

    • An open-collar shirt is comfortable and cool. They are in line with the work shirt look that gained popularity in 2022.

  • Slip-on shoes

    • Easy-on shoes without laces or buckles are popular for 2023. For dress occasions, opt for a pair made of quality leather. 


Men's chic fashion is characterized by classic lines and silhouettes. It usually features a mix of workwear and smart casual pieces. The clothing is body-hugging and often comes in a neutral color like black, white, gray, or navy blue.

Smart-casual is the look of the year according to Esquire Magazine. This look is accomplished with pencil-thin suites, black ink jeans, and tailor-fit suits.

Classic Styles

There are some classic styles that are timeless. Black leather biker jackets always look cool, and nobody can beat a crisp white button-down Oxford shirt for casual wear. You should also invest in a few pieces in tweed, the wooly fabric that has been worn by Oxford professors and British country gentlemen for generations. Its sheen, muted colors, and subtle patterns make for a sophisticated way to dress smartly without looking like a costume.

A good rule of thumb for menswear is to keep things in threes. A fine-gauge knit between a shirt and blazer will add a layer of texture to any ensemble, while a cardigan sweater is an ideal choice for a light jacket or coat. And don’t forget a patterned pocket square to catch the eye in just the right way.

If you want to look great in the most classic styles, make sure that you’re shopping from a sustainable fashion label. Responsible fashion brands are adding ethical options to their collections, and you can help support them by buying from them. You can also shop at second-hand clothing stores for a great deal on some classic pieces that are perfect for your wardrobe.

Leather Accessories

A good bomber jacket is a must-have in every man's closet. It must be made from quality materials that will last you a long time. You can choose from a variety of colors and designs to match your outfits. 

Invest in black or brown leather shoes and boots. Be sure to take these pieces to a leather smith annually for cleaning, and restoration, and to have buckles, and strings, cleaned or repaired (replaced) as needed. This is how you get the most from your wardrobe.

Colors & Trends

Menswear trends often revolve around one color or another, but this summer, shades of orange, tan, and white are a new focusMilitary fashion is back – and this year even brands like Fendi, Hermes are all offering their takes on army jackets and combat trousers. You don't need to go full-on tactical, simply add a touch of utilitarian chic to your outfits.

When it comes to shoes, the days of separate dress shoes and casual sneakers are over. Instead, take a cue from David Beckham and opt for all-black footwear that's both sophisticated and easy to style. 

Men have always loved to dress stylishly, but the challenge is to know how to balance fashion trends with classic styles that fit their tastes. Ultimately, you can look like you spend a fortune on your wardrobe when you shop for the right brands and take advantage of the latest trends. Go for classic cuts and styles and use a tailor to get the perfect fit.
