With Fashion Week wrapping up in the city, it might be time to take a look at your suit collection. It’s true some classics will never go out of style. But, it’s always a good idea to keep up with the latest trends.
You may think you have a suit for every occasion. That is, until you show up to your next meeting or happy hour or the wedding and feel a little underdressed – or out of tune.
Not to worry, we’ve made the ultimate guide to help you keep up with the latest fashions in men’s designer suits. The following are some of our favorite collections and concepts for this year.
Showing up in neutral tones and comfort-fit fabrics like cotton and linen, Tod’s spring 2018 line is anything but normal.
The creative team explored using leather in a way that makes people do a double-take on the street. They also blended stripes, cloudy tones, and hints of camouflage to make your look do anything but stand out.
Perhaps the best feature of these men’s designer suits is the freedom to mix and match.
Each separate suit piece was crafted to complement more than it’s partner. You can choose to wear the full, matching suit one day, or make a statement with one of the jackets the next.
On the other end of the style spectrum, Etro made a bold appearance at Milan’s Fashion Week. The brand is coming up on its 50-year anniversary, and as such, focused its attention on some of its long-time inspirations.
The result? A stunning use of Indian textiles that you can wear on the Manhattan streets tomorrow and look great in.
The suits were mostly elegant paisleys and Madras.
The patterns adorned both the jacket and pant, while the shirts were one color to tie everything together. A handful of suits were presented the other way around – a simpler take on the jacket and pant to cover a fun, expressive shirt.
Whichever way Etro spun it, though, the looks worked. These men’s designer suits are a sure fit for anyone looking to add something unique to their collection.
Spring has sprung in the eyes of Tom Ford. This well-known designer in the world of men’s designer suits took bold chances with color and prints this season, which look amazing.
Some standout styles this season include Ford’s use of animal print and ties that are wider than normal.
The animal fabrics are the accents any suit needs. His Fashion Week looks sported this style on shoes, on separate pants or jackets, and on entire suits.
Among them were the ties that turned out to be a genius complement to a well-tailored, slim-fitting suit. The wide cut created the perfect balance for these looks.
If you’re not a fan of the jungle-inspired Tom Ford collection, maybe you’ll love the nautical looks Paul Smith came up with this year. His whole take on the collection was the thought of the beach and the water when spring rolls around – something New York City might need more of!
Island-inspired prints were paired with neutral, soft colors and a few bold tones, too. This resulted in a collection that is sure to be a favorite of men’s designer suits for a while.
Even the silhouettes shook things up.
The line emphasizes the shoulders while letting the jacket hang a bit longer than normal. To match, the pants were tailored to be slim fitting, with some sitting a bit higher on the waist than normal.
Every man knows gray is one of the most classic suit colors there are. Giorgio Armani is the man who made an entire collection look stunning using just this color.
His various tones of light and dark gray are a wonderful contrast to the typical fashions of spring. Not to mention, these are men’s designer suits you can wear all year long to practically any occasion and for many years to come!
Some of the more noteworthy Armani looks included subtle geometric designs on the suit shirts and the use of big, bold buttons. These were added to both the jackets and the shirts.
The designer was not afraid to mix up his tones, either. Some looks sported a different shade of gray in each piece of the suit. Such a combination created a visually engaging, contrasting look that still matched just right.
While Armani redefined one color, Gucci was not afraid to step outside the lines and try new, bold looks. This spring line is the perfect source for a statement suit.
The Gucci suits were retro-inspired for the modern-day man.
The colors ranged in all kinds of shades and tones as did the cuts and silhouettes. A noteworthy style was the use of strong shoulders. Some pants had a flare to match.
Other suits in this range were slim, simple, and elegant. They complimented their louder counterparts well. These more neutral designs came down the runway with statement accessories to tie everything together.
Also used in this line was the long jacket cut. It’s not the first time such a trend has come around for men’s designer suits during spring, and we’re confident it won’t be the last.
