What's Trending for 2023

Post-pandemic trends are emerging and here’s what we found: you’re back in the office, whether it’s a hybrid model or fully back in person, traveling for business and vacation, and settling into a new normal. We’re seeing a push to gift and reward in a more meaningful way with higher quality items and a focus on longevity. Let’s take a dive into the trends we found for you this year: brand names, colors, textures, and products. 

Trending Brand Names 

Elevated looks for the office and home are all the hype. We see popular retail brands surfacing for corporate uniforming like Peter Millar, Ogio, Brooks Brothers, and TravisMathew. Each of these brands highlights luxury workleisure wear by meshing modern styling and comfort. Peter Millar and TravisMathew lean towards golf attire but provide a variety of looks that can be worn in or out of the office. Brooks Brothers and Ogio bring modern, comfortable styles that are still work appropriate. And most importantly, these are brands employees will recognize and want to wear.

Trending Colors & Textures 

Each year we look for textures and colors that are going to come out on top. For 2023, we’re noticing muted, neutral tones, pastels, and color blocking. Quiet branding is at an all-time high; using tone-on-tone looks that have a subtle imprint increases the likelihood the recipient will use the gift for years to come. Quilted textures are having a real moment, too. We’ve seen quilting on everything from duffel bags to can coolers.  

Trending Products 

Did someone say STANLEY? If you haven’t seen a Stanley tumbler out and about, you probably need to get out more. This large tumbler holds a whopping 30-40 ounces of your beverage of choice, features a reusable straw and double wall vacuum insulation. Anything that can be used at home, in the office or in transit from one to the other is popular; power banks, tumblers, fold-away bags, etc. Eco-friendly products are making their way to the front of the class again. Recycled ocean plastic is being used to create customizable totes, socks, and backpacks.

Trend Watch for 2023 

We’re excited to see 2023 unfold and we’ll keep a watchful eye to see what other trends emerge. We are so here for the muted tones, quiet branding, and puffed texture.
