The popularity of the suit has increased in the past few years following fashion trends becoming more casual. In the 2010’s, suits were stereotyped as office attire and appropriate for special occasions such as weddings, but nothing more than that.
In the new decade, they have made a resurgence in popularity where suits have made headlines with their eye-catching colour and elegance. While they have been a staple look for men at many events such as weddings, cocktail parties or red carpet premieres, suits have become popular for both men and women alike.

We’re anticipating the continuing popularity of bold suit colours as well as the increased popularity of different materials like velvet, and prints. While suits already make a statement with their timeless appeal of being neat and elegant, they’re set to become an irreplaceable trend in 2023 and beyond for formal and informal occasions.
Be the best dressed at every party by wearing a statement piece. Consider distinct colours and materials when looking to purchase a suit jacket. But, if you don’t like to stand out but still like the appeal of suits, dress down by swapping out your dress shirt for a plain black or white tee, wear white sneakers and put on a pair of chinos.
