Winter is finally here as the temperatures are going down to single digits, the mornings are frosty with a biting wind, and the snowflakes have started falling giving everything a Disney Frozen vibe. But what’s not picturesque is the men resembling abominable snowmen as they go out and about their daily tasks bundled up in bulky ill-fitting coats, their outdated frumpy scarves, and ugly-looking knit caps that belong in the Christmas past.
These men have sacrificed any style or fashion choices over staying warm and end up looking like someone you would avoid if you pass them on the street. Just because the temperatures are going down below zero, it doesn’t mean that you should let go of your personal style just to stay warm!
With the latest winter fashions and numerous winter clothing options in the market, there are many stylish mens winter outfit ideas that you can choose from to dress sharp during the winter season.
Here are out top ten mens winter outfit ideas to help you find the perfect look for every day of the week during this winter season:
Smart but Casual
Just because it’s cold outside that doesn’t mean you can’t wear your skinny jeans! You can pair up your skinny jeans with a classic winter sweater and throw on a soft wool winter jacket at the end for a smart but casual look that will work for most outdoor activities in winter. You can add some finishing touches to your outfit by putting on some gloves and adding some simple ankle boots and trading your jeans for some smart khaki pants for a complete look that will look great for those casual lunches.
The Denim Look
According to GQ magazine, one of the top trends for winter 2020 is denim. Denim is one of the most versatile fabrics and looks great for everything from pants, jackets. Denim also comes in various colors from bleached-out look to rave-ready acid washes. You can pair up some denim cargo pants with a smart fit leather jacket or bump up your look with a blue cotton jacket inspired by Dean Winchester from Supernatural!
Layering is the best way to stay warm in winter with the option of removing a layer if you get too hot. By wearing multiple clothes on top of each other you also have more room to get creative with your outfit choices. Layering for formal winter clothes includes wearing an undershirt, adding a basic formal dress shirt on top of that, then putting on a sweater, vest, or cardigan over that, and finally finishing off the entire look with your suit jacket. You can even put on an overcoat on top of your suit for extremely cold winter days.
Layering for casual wear is mostly the same but without the suit jacket or the dress shirt. Instead, you can opt for a snazzy shirt or sweater and layer that with a simple leather jacket or a shearling jacket depending on the weather!
A Splash of Color
Bold colored looks never go out of style and give a certain eye-catching appeal to your outfit. Choose colors such as red or army green that will stand out against the plain white snow-covered winter landscape. Pair a bold color Coat with plain black pants and a scarf in a contrasting color and you will turn heads wherever you go!
Formal Winter Outfit
If you want a formal winter outfit, the first step is choosing the right suit to wear. Depending on your personal style, you can choose from a range of winter suits inspired by the latest style trends as well as popular television programs and movies such as Peaky Blinders and James Bond. Once you have your suit sorted, just find a nice, stylish overcoat and a contrasting scarf to complete your look!
The Preppy Look
Looking preppy is not always a bad thing if it’s done tastefully and suits the occasion. The preppy look is perfect for semi-formal and casual days in the office and makes you look effortlessly stylish. All you need is some smart, fitted pants in grey, dark blue, or black, a dress shirt and a stylish coat to go on top. Some additional touches such as casual boots, a scarf, a peaked cap, and some stylish shades will complete the look!
You can achieve a rugged casual look with virtually any combination of winter clothes. A pair of denim jeans with a checked dress shirt, a chunky knit sweater, and some ankle boots will give you that casual, ‘I don’t care’, but stylish look. You can also go for a more carefully put together outfit by choosing some straight black pants, a turtleneck sweater, and a wool coat on top. Just make sure everything fits and the color combination is tasteful!
A great way to bump up any winter outfit is by adding some tasteful accessories. You can choose from a range of winter accessories such as beanies, peaked caps, scarves in various fabrics and colors, stylish winter boots, and even some classy leather or wool gloves. Just make sure the color of the accessories compliments the outfit and doesn’t clash with your overall look.
Urban Winter Look
Urban clothing is a classic blend of trendy and stylish clothing with a youthful, hip-hop touch. It is also quite easy to achieve an urban winter look. All you need is some choice of winter essentials that are a perfect blend of casual and chic. Choose a casual cardigan and pair it with fitted or skinny pants, a long and loose winter coat, some boots that look worn-in, and add finishing touches with a beanie or peaked cap, and a scarf around your neck. You can also swap the cardigan for a hoodie for a more casual look.
Winter Street Style
Winter street style is similar to the urban look. All you need to do is swap out the shirt for a hoodie, add a short jacket, and some loose pants for a completely casual look. You can also swap the boots for some regular or high-top sneakers and trade your wool or peaked cap for a baseball cap. The street style is also very practical as you can layer it with other pieces of clothing according to the weather!
