Winter Fashion Essentials For Every Man’s Wardrobe Being a trend setter and taste maker is in no way reserved just for the girls. If you pride yourself on your sharp sense of style, winter is the season for you but before you pack your wardrobe with bundles of hot off the catwalk looks, try our rundown of white hot essentials. Perfect for city slickers and country mansions, no man’s wardrobe should be without these winter essentials this year…
1. A Sharp Suit
Classic tailoring never really goes out of style but this winter a sharp suit is your go-to, especially for the festive soirees sure to dot your Christmas getaway. A suit is a wardrobe classic so it’s worth paying as much as you can afford to pick up an investment piece that will serve you well year after year. Textures are also big news this season so look for interesting touches such as the use of cashmere and leather. Be careful not to go too OTT on the detail as you won’t something classic that you can get wear out of and still look totally on trend in five year’s time, rather than something that’s going to look dated in a few months. Check out some of our formal and stylish elevator shoes for men which go perfectly with a sharp tailored suit.
If you hit up Instagram you’ll have seen tartan packed all over your feed – from tees to hats, trousers to jackets, the Scottish staple is where its at style wise this season. The girls are going made for a classic red and black combo so it’s a safe bet if you want to look totally on trend and still impress the ladies in your life with your on-the-nose fashion savvy. If you’re a bit unsure, try an accent piece like a scarf –another winter staple- which can bring a casual tee and jeans combo right up to date.
3. A Trilby
Another steal from the girls who’re embracing hats and the whole masculine-feminine vibe for AW13, hats have been big news for the last couple of seasons are look set to be around for a while yet. Dapper, cool or footballer-off duty, there’s a trilby to suit your style. Classic black is a good investment but try a quirkier maroon or cream if you really want to stand out and make a statement.
4. A Winter Knit
There’s nothing cool about goose bumps and purple skin and if it’s good enough for the world’s highest paid male model, it’s good enough for us. A winter knit will probably be your most hardworking wardrobe buy this year. Look for chunky wool and textural detail such as cable knit as well as interesting design features like a shawl neckline in any colour that tickles your fancy. If you’re stuck finding something that doesn’t look like it was knitted by your granny circa Christmas 1990, H&M’s latest menswear campaign with super Sean O’Pry is all about the knitted jumper so head to the high street and rifle through their selection.
