Tom Barker, a fashion model, has had an incredibly successful début runway season. He has modelled for Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Kenzo and Mugler among other Spring Summer 2012 shows. What is so different about this model? Tom can work with many different trends. The types of clothing he chooses are the right collections that clearly can inspire you for this winter. In fact, what he is wearing currently are timeless pieces you should collect for many winters to come.

How to choose your winter jacket?

Tom is wearing many different labels, and it is obvious that coming winter long jackets teamed with grey suits are the way forward. The grey suits are worn tight on the body for this coming winter. All jackets designs have an exaggerated collar added to them. This year I am seeing the fur collar being more and more used for men.

Make sure when you choose your jacket that it does not look way too big on you. If you have a man’s gut go for a more fitting jacket. Black or dark blues are nice colours to make you look slimmer.  For shorter men with the long jackets make sure it stops way above the knee. You need to be wearing the jacket, not the other way around.

What Coats Will Be Hot This Winter?

  1. Long jackets with fur collars. If you want to stand out from the norm go for a wool coat with a fur collar.
  2. Tweed jackets are a  perfect business coat this winter. You will be remembered when you walk into that next interview.
  3. Long black jackets. Go for a good quality wool one this winter, they’ll keep you snug and warm.
  4. Long black leather jackets. Choose one with a nice collar. Make sure it does not look too big on you and you certainly will rock this winter.

Be inspired by what Tom Barker is wearing this winter and update your winter wardrobe with an item you’ve never worn before.
