Winter is here, which means that it’s time for a seasonal wardrobe change. In need of some style tips to keep you looking classy while feeling cosy in the colder weather? Use this men’s winter style guide to help you with outfit ideas and finding your winter style staples for 2019.
Fisherman Beanie Hats
The beanie hat is a simple classic choice for keeping your head warm in winter, but the style that you choose can affect your whole look. This winter, the fisherman beanie is everywhere. A cuffed ribbed beanie hat in neutral colour pairs well with any outfit all season long. You can go for a cable knit fisherman beanie to make it more stylish, or a mini fisherman beanie if you like the turn-up brim but want it to sit snugly on your head without covering your ears.
Fur Hood Jackets
A fur hood jacket or lined jacket is a must-have for any man’s winter wardrobe. Durable enough to keep you comfortable in harsh weather, a classic parka is a winter street style staple. A 4bidden jacket is sure to help you stay warm and stylish at the same time with high-quality faux fur trim. Parkas and puffer jackets are the ideal lengths to keep you warm and shield you from the wind and rain without sacrificing style when you put the hood up.
The key to staying warm is layers. Although you may have a heavy winter coat as your outer layer, it is important to have multiple thinner layers underneath. Wearing several layers can make you look bulky if you don’t do it right, so to stay looking fashionable you should rely on simple button-down shirts under soft sweaters made from cotton or wool. To make this smart look more casual, you can trade the sweater for a zip-up hoodie, but again – stick to neutrals.
When it comes to winter menswear, trousers are often overlooked. Dark-wash denim jeans are reliable enough, of course, but there are other options out there. One of the best types of trousers for men to wear in winter is moleskin. This heavy-duty soft cotton (not actual moleskin) is ideal for keeping your legs warm, so they are the perfect winter alternative to chinos. Moleskin chinos in earth tones match well with plaid flannel shirts and sweater combinations.
An absolute essential in winter is a sturdy pair of boots. They are the foundation of every winter wardrobe because you are likely to wear them almost every day, and they need to be functional as well as fashionable. Work boots may seem more utilitarian than sleek Chelsea boots, but they can still be stylish. For example, chukka boots have the sole grip and ankle protection that you need while still passing for formal as required and dressing up an outfit.
Driving gloves might seem antiquated, but they are actually a fashion statement – you don’t have to be driving to wear them. This style of soft leather gloves is flexible and they are even available as touchscreen leather gloves for added functionality in their everyday use. Faux leather gloves are obviously best for affordability and ethicality. A pair of smart-looking black or brown leather gloves add a classy touch to a casual winter look with streetwear styles.
