With summer firmly behind us, it is time to start planning how to fight the cold while looking good this winter. Here are the key styles for men for autumn/winter 2013, so fellas pay attention and ladies take note to make sure your boyfriend’s looking good this season.
A good coat is an essential item not only for this winter, but for many years to come. It is worth spending a bit extra on your coat to ensure you are getting a quality garment that will last. A number of celebrities have been spotted sporting coats from British designer Barbour. A wax jacket will give you a timeless English gentleman look, while the classic Barbour quilted jacket with its fleece lining will keep you warm and cosy.
Knitwear is a must-have for any man’s winter wardrobe. The cardigan may have had its revival a few seasons ago, but this season it is all about the jumper. Chunky knits are bang on-trend, and will help to keep out the cold too. We love the wintery feel of this Edwin Oiler sweater, available from Liquor Store Clothing. Team it with a checked shirt underneath for a look that is both stylish and cool.
There is no point in being all wrapped up for winter, then having inappropriate footwear. Canvas trainers may be suitable for summer, but in a sudden winter downpour, they will soak right through leaving you with wet feet. If you must have trainers, go for a leather pair that will keep your feet dry and easily wipe clean. However, the best footwear you can wear this winter is a sturdy pair of boots. These leather boots have all the practicality you’ll need for treacherous conditions, while encompassing the on-trend masculine style.
It’s not just women that can suffer from the dreaded bad hair days, men can too. Combat whatever this winter throws at you by investing in a winter hat. Not only will it keep you warm during those bitterly cold winter days, it is also the lazy man’s option to avoid styling your hair. There are a range of hats available on the market, but the most popular style this season is the beanie hat. This offering from River Island is really versatile and will go with virtually everything.
