Winter is around the corner and it is time to throw away those summer clothes. The clocks are going back on the 31st of October. That is a sign to get those woolly jumpers and parka coats from out of the wardrobe.
If you are like me, you probably haven’t made the transition from summer clothing to winter clothing. From winter boots to puffer jackets, time to wrap up and see what essentials that you need.
Parka jackets are arguably the coat that you can choose when it comes to the winter months. Yes, they are pricier but they do the job of keeping you dry and warm. Parkas tend to be long-line (Past your hip) so that they can keep the top half of your legs warm.
If you want to know how to style a parka coat, take a look at Liam Gallagher, a man that masters the style with a parka jacket. You could even take it a step further and have fur around the hood, that will protect you from the snowflakes that have fallen.
Snow Boots/ Military Boots
If it can get very snowy in the area where you live, you should purchase yourself a pair of snow boots. They don’t even need to be proper snow boats. A pair of military boots will do the job of keeping your feet dry and giving you the grip you need.
Additionally, they are a lot more fashionable compared to your traditional snow boots. The best part about military boots is that you can get them in a variety of different colours. Khaki, grey, black or brown. Many colours go easy with whatever outfit that you are going to be wearing.
Flannel shirts are a style that is a trend all year round. However, the thickness of the material changes when it gets to autumn and winter. Some flannel shirts are even quilted inside to give you that extra warmth.
Again, they are easy to style with whatever jeans you will be wearing on the day. They also have the tartan style that is currently on-trend at the moment. Either way, this is the perfect outdoor shirt for roaming around the city shopping or sitting outside at a bar.
Dark Pair of Jeans
It is 2021 every man should at least have a dark pair of jeans. That could either be dark blue or black. Black jeans are the easy go-to pair of jeans for many reasons. One of them is they are great for those that have a smart-casual style at work. It might be easy to do but, it is also one of the most stylish looks that a man can wear.
When it gets to the wintertime, the clothing gets a bit darker in terms of colour. If the sky is getting darker, why not dress to match the rest of the environment.
A gilet is a great addition to a man’s wardrobe. There are a couple of positives when it comes to a gilet. For starters, you do not need to worry about what you wear underneath it. Having a little colour coordination will benefit the look. Nonetheless, a puffer gilet is one of few jackets that you can choose when it comes to wearing any colour.
Another positive is that they are extremely warm. We suggest that you wear something long-sleeved underneath the gilet as it is a sleeveless jacket. Try going for something slightly thicker than your typical long sleeve shirt as well. Consider a flannel shirt as these will keep you warm on the top half of your body.
It is officially beanie season. Well, it isn’t far off from it being beanie season. A beanie is most appropriate when you do not have a hood on your jacket. Not only will it keep your head warm but it will also keep your ears warm. It is reckoned that we lose around 40% – 50% of our body heat through our heads and neck.
With a simple woolly hat, you can make sure that you keep this body heat stored. A pea jacket is one of the most popular jackets that can be worn in winter because of its warmth and style. A beanie would be a great addition to this outfit to make sure that you stay warm.
Last but not least, a wool overcoat. As mentioned before, the popular style for coats and jackets during the winter tend to not have a hood. This is one of those coats. This style is recognised every year when it comes to the Christmas markets.
Wool is the easy go-to material when it comes to the colder months. It also fits the category of wearing it at formal events as well. Complete the look with a scarf and you will be nice and warm for the evening.
There are many more items of clothing that you choose from when it comes to winter. Not to mention that there are many styles that you can choose for winter as well. A pea coat or a parka is an essential item when it comes to the colder part of the year. Mens streetwear will always be a popular look no matter what time of year it is. So if you rock this style then stick to it.
