The seasons are on the change and as the clocks going back confirm, summer is now behind us and it is time to get ready for the winter. A change in clothing is in order at this time of the year, but you needn’t sacrifice style for comfort – just because it is cold outside it certainly doesn’t mean that you can’t look your best! As well as the usual daily activities of work, the winter means that we also can spend time on winter walks in the countryside and of course at the Christmas parties that many of us missed last December, as well as new year’s.
So, a winter wardrobe needs to be warm and comfortable, as well as stylish and ready to take on all those parties – here are a few of the wardrobe staples that should be a part of every man’s winter wardrobe…
Footwear – When it comes to shoes, this is a time to make sure that your feet are not just comfortable and dry, but also look their best. Boots are a favourite winter wardrobe staple, and there are such a wide array to choose from you are bound to find the ones for you. Smart boots look great with sharp tailoring and can be worn for the office or out for a meal. More casual boots are also a great choice for weekend attire, keeping the feet warm and comfortable when walking in the countryside or hitting the town.
Coats – There are so many styles of coats to choose from that it would be impossible to list them all. It is a good idea to have a look at the different cuts and styles and choose a coat that you know will fit well with your lifestyle and the rest of your winter wardrobe. For a casual and warm winter coat, go for something like Superdry menswear from EJ Menswear which will see you through the chilly months outdoors, whether at a sports game or on a winters hike. For something smart yet warm that will see you through the trip to the office and Christmas party season, an overcoat in a material like wool is your best bet, and it can also be dressed more casually for weekend activities.
Jeans – A wardrobe staple in any season, in the winter a good pair of jeans is a must. Jeans fashions have seen skinny styles reign supreme for many seasons now, but the tide is turning, and the looser cuts are coming back. Look to the 90s for inspiration and dress them with a checked shirt and layers for a casual look. For something smarter go for a darker colour and a more structured shape, which you can wear in town, they are a great and versatile item, but make sure that you choose jeans that flatter your body shape and fit well!
