What do men need to be fashionable during the fall and winter? These five items are all you need to create an amazing outfit.
Winter is coming. And no, that’s not meant as an over-used reference for any popular tv-show. It’s merely a fact that we must keep in mind, especially when it comes to clothing.
The fall-winter season is all about layers. The main thing to keep in mind when it comes to staying warm is to choose the right fabrics for the right occasion (and, for goodness’ sake, please keep those feet warm!). Now, if you care about fashion as much as you care about staying warm, you also must pick the right designs, colors, and combinations. Remember, when layering up, a generally good tip is to go for contrasting elements: you don’t want to be all in blue or red or brown nor to combine dark blue with black, unless you know exactly what you’re doing. Fortunately, there’s lots of good options out there and we’re here to help. Here’s a list of 5 fall-winter essentials that also happen to make a great outfit if you wear them together.
Let’s start with the most basic area you must always keep warm in cold weather: feet. Remember that feet are one of your body’s main radiators, which means heat escapes from them easily. A good pair of boots has the benefit of going all the way to your ankles, which means more warmth. And it’s not hard to find a very fashionable leather pair.
Next up, a good pair of jeans. A slim fit is preferable if you want to be fashionable, but a dark wash is an essential item for any wardrobe. They look great on pretty much anyone, regardless of build, as they accentuate the better aspects and hide the ones we’d rather leave unseen. This color is good at hiding thick or skinny legs, and it’s very flexible when it comes to dress-code.
Now, we mentioned layers. And we mentioned contrast. A good, light-colored layering sweater is a great addition to anyone’s fall-winter closet, especially if combined with other darker colors (like the dark-wash jeans). Here, simplicity makes for elegance, but it is the kind of elegance that looks great if you want to go casual as well.
To layer up, a jacket over the sweater is essential. The best choice would be a leather jacket to go with the light sweater, but the jacket can be as big a you need depending on how cold the weather is where you are.
It’s time for the final touch, and if you want to keep warm and look fashionable at the same time, a scarf one of the most important accessories you could ever own. You can never go wrong with a good scarf.
Now you’re set and ready for winter, both warm and fashionable!
