Before you know it, old man winter will be here; and with it comes the bitter-cold, snow, and ice. The winter months can be brutal, but with a little preparation you can be sure to stay warm and comfy through it all.
When it comes to your winter wardrobe, there are so many options to choose from: coats, hats, gloves, and boots to name a few; but with so many styles, colors, and fabrics it can be difficult to decide on what to add to your cart. Here are some recommendations based on what’s trending for men’s fashion this winter.
Let’s start with the basics. The first item that you want to add to your closet is a winter coat. This is an item that you should consider spending extra dollars on. Your outerwear should be durable, comfortable, warm, and waterproof–and unfortunately most of the bargain brands don’t offer the protection that you need to get through the fierce winds and blinding snow. Instead, invest in an insulated coat like this L.L. Bean Parka.
A good winter coat requires good accessories-hats, gloves, and scarves. These are essential for the winter months. For these items, the trend is warmth and durability. It’s all about fabrics. Look for warm and durable fabrics like wool and tweed. If you’re looking to add some style while keeping warm, fabrics like leather, fur, and velvet will do the trick.
Staying with the theme of durability, warmth, and comfort, let’s talk boots! Most of us think of winter boots as clunky, heavy, and not so flattering when it comes to style. The other challenge is finding a boot that can take you from the office to trudging through snow covered walkways. The good news is that this season you don’t need to compromise style for practicality. Take the Brogue Boot for instance. It has the style factor for the office but also has a hefty sole that will maintain durability for the snowy walk to your car. If you’re not looking for style points, the Original L.L. Bean Boot will be a great addition to your closet. It will keep your feet dry and also boasts Thinsulate Insulation for added warmth. Your feet will thank you.
So the bad news: winter is coming. The good news: you’ll be well prepared.
