SS23: Tailoring

For SS23 tailoring is becoming a core staple with casual tailoring increasing by +62% this season. Moving forward, the hybrid look, that balances work and leisure, is manifesting its importance and becomes a staple in all assortments. Long gone are the days of dusty pencil skirt suit sets, that feel old-fashioned and prude. Tailoring classics are feeling more fresh than ever before. Inspired by the party-driven mood short silhouettes are showing their relevance for SS23 tailoring, liberating the legs. With suit sets of mini skirts and shorts, the high-summer look is proposing a new uniform that is equally adaptable for work and after-work. In cropped versions, such sets are induced with an even more fashionable note. Blazer dresses have increased by +67% this season and continue to prevail for 2023. With empowered shoulders and surprising cut-outs you can open the product to a younger and more trendy consumer. Similarly aiming at a client that just enters the business world, relaxed tailoring fits are the new essential. With long-line blazers and oversized looks 5+49%), the new set is resonating ease and comfort. Another highlight is the workleisure peanut, that shifts between the classic tailoring pants and a utility trouser (+17% on SS22).

A classic product group gets rejuvenated!

Talking about lightness and a more sophisticated approach, satin tailoring is offering fluidity and a soft sense of femininity to the category. The look depicts prominent loungewear aesthetics and has shown an increase of +280% for SS22. With linen, another breathable material is gaining momentum in tailoring, gaining +41% this runway season. Linen suits have a more humble feel and connect to more sustainable themes. Their calm look is depicted within a rather dressed up design scope and shows that mindful can be elegant too. Within a season of liberation, we can see short-sleeved cropped blazers matching with short bottoms for a high-summer look. Proudly accentuating the female body is a SS23 core theme and belted blazers are translating this desire through a focus on the female silhouette. More edgy, reconstructed styles with cut-outs and wrap effects are focusing on presenting tailoring elements like lapels and waistbands on the body, rather than filling out a garment with it. Take a closer look at all the SS23 essentials below:

Versatile collection assortments

As seen above, the tailoring category, which has been struggling during the comfort-driven pandemic is starting to fight back. Designers are using their entire repertoire to freshen-up the product group. With keywords like ease, hybrid-looks, seduction and fun, SS23 tailoring is celebrating a joyful comeback. As seen above color-choices are crucially influencing the look of suit sets. There are two groups: Firstly, the highlighter colors and hyper bolds that are guaranteed to generate enchanting statements. Secondly, neutrals and mild tints, are offering a timeless and more serene choice for clients that are seeking for trans-seasonal and timeless keepsakes. Finding the right balance between office and party, sparkle and subtle and statement and laid-back is crucial for the upcoming summer. Make sure to build your assortment with sets that can be sold separately to  cater to recessionary and younger clienteles and boost sales, especially with color-block and layering combos being a favored option for styling in 2023.
