As the temperature drops and the days grow shorter, it’s time to refresh your wardrobe and embrace the winter season in style. Winter fashion is not just about staying warm; it’s also an opportunity to express your personal style. In this article, we’ll explore the top five men’s winter fashion items and accessories that will help you stay cozy and fashionable throughout the colder months. From classic essentials to trendy pieces, these items will ensure you’re always on point with your winter look.
The hooded gilet
When it comes to men’s winter fashion, there’s one item that should be a part of every wardrobe, and that’s a padded gilet. We love YOUTHUP’s hooded gilet – a versatile piece that effortlessly combines functionality and style. Guaranteed to keep you warm during the winter months, its lightweight design means it will do so without the bulk of typical winter wear, and with its sleek design and versatile colour options, it looks great thrown on over long-sleeved t-shirts, jumpers and any other staples you happen to have in your wardrobe. Gilets are a major style trend for this winter, and with the Youthup hooded gilet you’ll be nailing it whilst enjoying the utmost of comfort. It’s a win, win.
The wool pea coat
A classic winter staple that exudes timeless elegance, the wool pea coat is a winter wardrobe staple for the sartorial male. Featuring a suave double-breasted design and broad lapels, it exudes smartness and looks great worn over business wear, but it’s also great thrown on over casual attire, like jeans and a jumper, to dress your look up a bit. Sleek and modern, the peacoat is a structured jacket made from wool, so it’s certain to keep you warm and is a classic piece that is worth investing in as it’ll last you for many years to come. Opt for a traditional black or navy coat for one that goes with everything.
The cashmere sweater
As we’ve touched upon, comfort really is key in winter, and most of us couldn’t make it through the season without a snuggly jumper or two. For a sense of sheer opulence, splurge on a cashmere version this year and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. Offering exceptional softness and warmth, it feels like a true luxury and choosing a premium material like cashmere will instantly elevate your outfit with minimal effort. Available in a wide variety of hues, choose a few versatile colours such as navy, cream and a neutral hue and treat yourself to one of each so that you’ll always have one to suit every outfit.
The leather gloves
The winter weather can be bitterly cold, but how exactly do you leverage the cosiness of warming accessories without compromising on your carefully created personal aesthetic? When it comes to gloves, swapping thick, woollen offerings for a pair of sleek and elegant leather gloves is the ticket to sartorial success, and will keep your hands toasty whilst allowing you to continue looking just as slick as you usually do. Leather gloves are durable and designed to last, which makes them another worthwhile investment that will last you well beyond the upcoming season. Choose a neutral hue for maximum versatility or opt for an extra statement pair for when you’re feeling a little bit more adventurous. A burnt orange or forest green pair promise to add an extra sense of seasonal allure.
The beanie hat
A stylish beanie hat is the perfect way to complete your winter ensemble, and the good news is that they are another major trend for the coming season. Practical in that they promise to keep your head and ears nice and snug, they also exude a sense of casual charm and can be worn to compliment all kinds of looks – whether urban, sporty, classic or anything in between. Even better, they can hide a multitude of sins, too, so if you’re having a bad hair day then your beanie is the perfect solution. In fact, once you’ve owned one, you’re unlikely to ever go back, because they really are the ultimate winter wardrobe essential.
