Winter is closing in on the Northern hemisphere and it’s fast becoming time to pack up the summer stuff and dig out your winter wardrobe. For men wanting to update their look this season, it couldn’t be simpler. Sweaters are stylish, comfortable and warm, can be worn with any combination of clothes and are a great, quick way to inject new life into your wardrobe. Try dark-colored turtlenecks for a smart look and crewnecks or V-necks for laid back, casual, ever-stylish winter warmth.
Sweaters are great for keeping warm indoors, but for those Arctic expeditions out into the cold, you need extra protection, which is why a stylish jacket will work wonders for both your wardrobe and your body temperature. Go for casual denim worn over layers for an easy, trendy look that’s great with chinos. Dark denim is particularly brilliant for winter and looks great over a crewneck. Or you could go for a warm leather jacket that goes with practically any outfit and will last you for seasons to come.
Building on your winter layers, don’t forget the cherry on top – the hat. Hats are popular this season, perhaps in anticipation of a cold winter similar to last year’s, and there’s a range of styles for you to choose from. If you’re after trendy, try the knitted beanie, which is both easy to store and inexpensive. Tweed caps are great for a smarter look as well as brilliantly durable and so a good investment. If you’re after ultimate warmth, try a deerstalker to keep your ears out of the cold.
If knitted sweaters aren’t your thing or you’re after something a little lighter, as an alternative, you could try a warm fleece. The fleece has been through something of a reinvention of late and is now a hot ticket item. From comfy hooded tops to zip-up outdoor gear, fleeces are now streamlined and come in a variety of styles and colors to suit everyone. They’re brilliant for a casual look and will definitely help keep the winter chill at bay. Try blues or grays for a smart yet casual appearance.
OK, so, you’ve got your winter look – your stylish staples as well as your accessories. You’re almost set. One last item to consider adding to your collection is trusty thermal wear. These are not the embarrassing item they once were, but now in fact come in a range of styles suitable for everyone. Of course, thermal vests and underwear will keep you warm, but you can also get some great, stylish tops, jackets and pants that will look brilliant whether you’re on the ski slopes or walking around town.
