It’s always a good idea to update the wardrobe with the seasons, whether it’s with a spring capsule wardrobe, a sunny summer look and, indeed, something for those colder months of the year, as well. However, you might notice that men’s autumn-winter fashion can usually look just a little bulky and not overly smart. Here, we’re going to look at a few ways you can keep them comfortable and warm, while still looking great.
Get a good weatherproof coat
First and foremost, you want to keep dry, warm, and comfortable any time you have to head out into the cold weather, and one of the best ways to do that is with a robust, yet fashionable raincoat. Weatherproof coats come with slimmer silhouettes that mean you can still dress for warmth underneath while knowing that you’re going to be protected from the wind and rain.
Make use of wool
If you want to avoid the overly bulky coats and bomber vests, then you should be mindful of what materials that you use, instead. For instance, waistcoats and gilets made of wool are not only a lot warmer, but they’re also much lighter, and easier to layer with other clothes. What’s more, they can look remarkably smart, bringing a sort of timeless style with them.
Fill your wardrobe with accessories
If you don’t want to wrap up layer after layer, then you can make it a lot easier to stay warm, while also helping coordinate a bit of style cohesion with your outfits, with the right accessories. There are plenty of great scarves out there, not to mention hats and gloves that can do a lot to help a guy both look and feel a lot better in the weather. Just make sure you don’t forget to go out without them.
Look good in leather
If you can pull off a little bit of that edgy look, then a slick motorcycle-style jacket might just be the right thing. They’re too hot for any other time of year (apart from in spring I suppose) and are a good fit when it’s cold outside, but not overly wet. After all, they’re not going to handle consistent rain too well, so use leather when it’s windy and cold, rather than when it’s pouring down.
Rock some seasonal tones
A little colour coordination goes a long way as well. Aside from your accessories, you should take a look at the various layers of tier outfits, and find the right colours for the season. Some guys can really rock brighter colours in colder climes, which makes for a nice contrast but, otherwise, you might want to look at more seasonal tones, with browns, burnt yellows, reds, as well as navy and grey.
It only makes sense that you want to look good, but with the tips above, you can ensure that you stay comfortable in the colder weather, too.
