As the nights draw in and the weather gets progressively cooler, it’s time for you to incorporate warm outerwear into your wardrobe. Not only will quality jackets, scarves and hats keep you warm and cozy, but if you choose the right clothing then it’ll also leave you looking stylish and presentable.
With so much choice out there, it can be hard to find the perfect outerwear to compliment your existing clothes and ensure that you look good and feel cozy. Here are some of the best ways to find your perfect winter style.
Create A Series Of Winter Looks
When you’re buying anything for your wardrobe this winter, remember to think about how it can be incorporated into an outfit. Only buy articles of clothing that are versatile, or that will look good in a specific outfit that you plan on wearing regularly. Knowing roughly how you will wear your clothes will allow you to see exactly how everything you own will fit into your wardrobe and mean that you don’t waste time and money buying clothes you’ll only wear once.
Invest In A Versatile Coat
Your main fashion staple this winter is going to be your coat, as this will be worn almost every time you go outside. Choose a timeless style that will meet your needs and blend well with your existing wardrobe. When buying a new coat, think about how long you’ll be wearing it outside and whether you want additional features like a hood, pockets, and waterproofing, as these will affect the style and brand of coat you buy.
Use Accessories To Look Good And Keep Warm
An easy way to change up your look and adjust your temperature to suit changing weather conditions is to use accessories such as scarves, hats, and gloves. Try to keep your accessories classic so that they go with everything and won’t distract from the rest of your outfit. Select quality products that are made to last, so that you can wear them for many years to come and use them to keep out even the most biting winter wind.
Whilst it can seem tempting to simply wear a huge coat to keep warm, layering your clothing will ensure that the warmth is spread across your body, and allow you to remove or add clothing as the temperature changes. Buy a few stylish jackets, such as one from this denim jacket collection by EDWIN and incorporate them into your layered looks to give you flexibility and a unique style.
Don’t Be Afraid Of Bright Colors
In winter it can be tempting to go for muted, natural colors like navy, black, grey and dark green, but you shouldn’t be afraid to incorporate bolder colors into your wardrobe to make you stand out and really complete your look. Use bold colors strategically to ensure that you still look presentable and stylish. Make a statement with one key bright accessory, such as a hat or a scarf, so that it stands out and really makes an impact.
Blankets Aren’t Just For Beds Anymore
A recent entrant to the men’s outerwear market, the blanket scarf is perfect for those who want extreme warmth and comfort. Large and snug, blanket scarves can be worn in a variety of ways and will set you apart as a dedicated follower of fashion. They come in a variety of colors and styles so you can mix and match them with each outfit, allowing you to always look put together, even on the coldest of winter evenings.
Wear A Gilet For Smarter Occasions
A versatile, sleeveless garment, a gilet can smarten-up your look and keep you feeling surprisingly warm. Smarter and more professional than most coats, a gilet is perfect for those who want to look good but still stay warm even when they have to spend time outdoors. There are many different ways you can style a gilet, so that no matter what your personal tastes you can find a way to incorporate this warm outerwear staple into your winter ensemble.
Fashion Gets More Practical In Winter
The most important thing to remember is that as the weather gets colder your clothing has to be warm as well as stylish. As the cold weather sets in being stylish will take on a whole new meaning, and one that revolves around being warm. You might think that wearing several layers and loads of chunky knitwear isn’t particularly fashionable, but remember that even the world’s most stylish and fashion-conscious men have to wear warm clothing as the temperature drops. The most important thing is to feel comfortable, so follow the above tips and you should be able to combine your personal sense of style with practicality for the perfect winter wardrobe.
