Winter can be a difficult season to dress for. You need to dress practically for warmth and comfort, but at the same time want to look good. Don’t give up your style for winter as menswear, particularly knitwear, can be both stylish and practical.
Winter’s biggest investment purchases, jackets, deserve some thought. A jacket will be worn over many outfits and, as such, must be a versatile item. A winter jacket also needs to take the weather into consideration. For those times when a smart but warm coat is needed, a woollen jacket in a classic colour is a stylish choice. For more casual occasions, a waterproof wax jacket in a fashionable style is practical yet on-trend.
With this season's big trend for knitwear, there’s no reason why you can’t look good and be warm this winter. Fine knits look great over a colourful check shirt or casual t-shirts, whereas chunky knits are a great cosy but chic look to keep the cold at bay.
You can get fine-knit sweaters in many different styles and colours, so finding one to suit the occasion should be a simple task. If you prefer a more classic style, then you can’t really go wrong with stylish black, brown or grey. The more daring dresser will enjoy experimenting with colour; a forest green or midnight blue are both great winter options. Or maybe brighten up a grey day with a bright fuchsia or post box red?
For a smart look that still offers extra warmth, a fine knit tank layered over a classic shirt never fails to impress. Or for times when you want to look relaxed yet still stylish, a stripy rugby shirt with a thick hoodie or fleece thrown over is a casual and comfortable combination.
A good pair of jeans is essential for everyone, and you should take some time to ensure a correct fit. For daytime, you can’t go wrong with classic light denim, whereas evenings call for a smarter look with a darker navy or blue/black.
There’s no need to compromise on style or warmth this winter. It’s easy to look good and stay warm when the cold weather arrives.
