Winter is truly here. And, if the biting cold and longer nights haven’t already made you notice, it’s time you need to upgrade your wardrobe and dress for the weather – yet still look good, of course. After all, winter is one of those seasons where it can be difficult to throw on a decent-looking outfit without compromising your comfort and warmth.
So, without further ado, here are the best fashion tips on staying warm with handsome ‘fits this winter.
1 Long jackets
Jackets are an essential piece in winter outfits, especially if you want to keep warm outside, so it’s a good idea to have a variety of jackets for the season. We recommend long jackets and coats for an effortless look – and you can change things up with each outfit if you own different styles! For example, a long-padded coat is perfect for a casual yet stylish look, whereas an overcoat is more suitable for that classic and timeless feel.
Depending on the type of outfit you’re going for, you can alternate between different types of long jackets! Don’t be afraid to experiment.
2 Layering up
Of course, it’s very important to consider how you can stay warm during the winter. If you’re heading off to an outing, your outfit should evoke warmth both literally and figuratively. You don’t want your teeth to be chittering throughout a conversation, so here’s how you can prevent the cold from affecting you – layer up! Layering up is not only the ideal way to stay warm but also a great way to add some flair to your look.
Don’t forget that shirts for men come in a range of colors, styles, and sizes, but also in sleeve lengths! Wear long-sleeved shirts for the winter and pair them with a denim jacket (under another jacket…), a thin-knit roll-neck jumper, or simply a comfy hoodie with a jacket over that too. With all of these layers, you’re bound to stay warm and look sleek whilst at it.
3 Scarves and beanies
Who said scarves were only meant for women’s fashion? Men’s scarves have actually been a staple piece in men’s wardrobes for centuries, and it would be foolish to overlook them in men’s winter fashion. Their distinct purpose is to protect the neck, and when the temperature is freezing cold, your neck wants to be protected. The same is applicable to beanies – protecting your head from the cold! Scarves and beanies can add that extra touch of sophistication to your winter outfits, so don’t forget to wear either or both if your outfit (and body) demands it!
4 Socks and shoes
You may have gotten used to wearing gentleman-esque shoes like Oxfords and brogues with no-show socks. However, during winter, although these fashion choices can make you look stylish and classy, they do nothing in terms of keeping you warm. Instead, we suggest wearing thick socks and rocking those Chelsea boots. You probably won’t be wearing trousers trimmed to your ankles (or at least, we hope you don’t – ankles can get cold, too), so there’s no point in wearing those Oxfords for now. Save them for spring.
With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to keep warm in style this winter.
