Men might have a
gazillion of t-shirts for the summer, many pairs of cool sneakers and the same
ripped pair of jeans they wear year-round. But for some reason, they rarely
think of buying themselves a couple of staples for the colder months, so they
usually end up in hoodies and puffer jackets in the winter. It’s time to stop
and think of a few simple essentials that will bring a men’s winter wardrobe
from basic to stylish. Here are the things you’ll need.
A pea coat is an
absolute must for a man. It’s the perfect thing to wear when it’s cold outside
but you still want to look smart and classy. It goes well with formalwear if
you’re going somewhere fancy, but it also can make a casual outfit of jeans and
a jumper way more stylish and put together.
Alternatively, if you
want to look cool AF and hot as hell a leather jacket is the way to go. You can
wear it with absolutely anything and it’ll look good. Wear a t-shirt under it
for that “I might be in a rock band” look. When it gets colder wear a hoodie
under it to be warmer. Even if you wear a nice button-down or a roll-neck
jumper with it, the leather jacket will give you a bit of an edge.
Black jeans should be a
staple in anyone’s closet, but it’s especially important for the winter. They
just go better with winter clothes. You don’t want to be out and about in blue
summer jeans when it’s snowing. Just invest in a good pair of black jeans and
they’ll last you a while, not to mention they go with everything.
Cable Knit Sweater
Hoodies are nice and
all, but there comes a point in life where you have to consider something a bit
smarter and classier than just a hoodie. A cable knit sweater is a classic for
winter. It looks good, it keeps you warm and it’ll make you look more grown-up
and put together.
Lots of men forget about
scarves, they just never think to get one. Somehow they think about coats and
hats, but scarves just aren’t something they think of, as if their neck doesn’t
get cold in the winter. There’s nothing more ridiculous than men trying to bury
into their coat like a turtle when it’s windy and freezing cold outside. So buy
yourself a nice warm scarf, as a side benefit it might make you look a bit French
in the process, and who doesn’t like that?
The amount of men that
wear sneakers in the winter months is astounding. Why do you do that? When
there’s plenty of beautiful boots available in an array of styles that will
provide you with warmth and comfort and make you look incredibly stylish in the
process. Chelsea boots are a solid choice that will go with everything, but you
can always go for something more like a military-style boot if you want an
A detail not many men
think of, but one that makes a huge difference. Wool socks provide much more
warmth than cotton ones do. They also are much better at absorbing any
moisture. They’re an absolute must with a nice pair of leather boots.
A nice long wool coat will not only provide you with much-needed warmth in the winter, but it’ll also make you swoon-worthy in the eyes of the ladies. Go for a classy camel one to contrast the dark clothes most people wear in the winter or get a dark navy or charcoal one for that “cool guy with swooshy coat” look.
