Men’s fashion: 10 trends to adopt for fall
Looking for a fashionable look this autumn? In this article, discover the must-have styles and colours for the modern man's wardrobe in 2023!
LEATHER IN ALL ITS FORMS
The aviator or biker look is back but in a "cleaner" version, i.e. with a neatly trimmed beard and well-placed (or shaved!) hair. More chic leather garments are definitely in. Opt for sturdy, timeless pieces that pay homage to classic motorcycle style for a better investment. In 2023, shades of brown and maroon are back with a vengeance. Remember that it's even better if your coat includes details (e.g. collar lapels) in shearling or the "sherpa" (faux shearling) option, it's even better! By the way, this trend can also be found in certain overshirts.
Already visible for some years now, overshirts are the ideal in-between-season piece. Not only do they provide a casual look, they're also perfect for layering. Try your overshirt with a simple T-shirt or over your favourite sweater. Chilly? Put it on under your parka, and done! At Ernest, we offer overshirts in light or lined versions. Come and discover them!
HYBRID BOOTIES AND DRESS SNEAKERS
The watchword for your fall footwear? Versatility! Look for ankle boots with eye-catching details and a more solid, comfortable sole. Wear them with a chino and a sporty or dress shirt for an elegant look. For a more casual look, opt for jeans and a quality T-shirt. Finally, note that ankle boots can also be worn with a suit and turtleneck, for example, for an irresistible sport-chic look!
Slip-on sneakers with leather details or inserts on the prettiest autumn days. Although too dressy for the gym, these shoes are good enough to wear to work or out on the town, among other things. Come to Ernest to find the men's shoes that will add comfort and style to all your outfits!
SUITS WITH CLASSIC CUTS
Please note: "classic" here doesn't mean "boring"! A quality suit is the foundation of an impeccable men's wardrobe. Even with added details or trimmings, simplicity works best - and that's what men seek! This year, a slightly more regular cut replaces more fitted styles. You can make a statement with color or windowpane checks. Good to know: wearing a black suit with a casual shirt and a pair of sneakers is always trendy.
SPORT JACKETS FOR ALL OCCASIONS
A classic sports jacket with a shirt, jeans and dress shoes will always look impeccable. For the early autumn season, pair it with a T-shirt. For cooler days, combine it with a turtleneck or round-neck sweater. Note that "hybrid" models are very popular. They feature a removable faux collar (bib) for two different looks depending on the type of outing. Neutral, versatile natural colours such as beige or brown are preferred. But don't be surprised to find burgundy or dark blue tinged with black!
BURGUNDY AND WINE RED
Often associated with nobility and royalty, deep reds are easy-to-match autumnal neutrals that suit many skin tones. A great way to stand out on gray days, these colours are everywhere: suits, jackets, sweaters, accessories and more.
Already very popular with women, the colour palette dominated by beige, sand, and camel is taking men's wardrobes by storm this fall. Comfortable monochromatic garments in rich fabrics make for the most elegant of looks. That said, there's no need to go head-to-toe in beige and brown. Instead, add natural hues as new neutrals to your wardrobe for a chic, sophisticated look!
70s-inspired trends have been around for about five years and are not going away soon. Bold florals, reminiscent of the curtain patterns in vogue then, are daringly displayed. Despite autumn, we're keeping our versions with lighter backgrounds and more sober colours. Friendly tip: To avoid the "tapestry" look, focus on one crucial piece per outfit!
ROUND- AND TURTLENECK SWEATERS (AND SOME POLO SHIRTS)
Opt for a round or turtleneck sweater for a dressy or sporty look. You'll find many options in materials and colours to wear alone or layered. If you're still wearing the V-neck, it will be very subtle, almost invisible. Polo collars, on the other hand, are trendy if they're "clean" to give a preppy look. We love models with a tone-on-tone texture and colour, but we also dare to include a few patterns in our fall wardrobe.
PARKAS AND COLORFUL COATS
Canadian autumn and winter weather is so changeable that you need several coats. So it's best to have variety and add colour! Khaki and burgundy are favoured instead of boring navy and black. In new arrivals, the burnt orange parka steals the show. Finally, while brown leather is in vogue, red, blue, yellow, and even green models are daring.
