How to Transition into a Menswear Winter Wardrobe that Will Stand the Test of TimeOn April 19, 2021 by admin
Is your wardrobe ready for winter? Do you have pieces in your wardrobe that you keep going back to year after year or do you find they’ve gone out of style and you need to start all over again?
Building on your existing clothing basics to create a capsule wardrobe means you can easily and stylishly transition into winter without buying a whole new wardrobe.
And if you choose well-designed classic styles, you can keep wearing them year after year without worrying about them going out of fashion.
Not sure where to start? Take a look at our menswear picks for some key pieces to build your winter capsule around.
Focus on Outerwear
Outerwear is of course critical in the winter months. No matter what outfit you’re wearing underneath, if you throw a warm coat over the top, you’ll stay warm and dry.
It’s really worth investing in a good quality winter jacket like this 1996 Nuptse jacket by The North Face.
The slightly retro style means you don’t have to worry about it looking “last season” and the quilted padding will keep you toasty warm even if you’re only wearing a t-shirt underneath
Upgrade Your Footwear
What you wear on your feet is equally important. Nobody wants to trudge through snow and sleet with damp cold feet. At the same time, you don’t want to pull on a pair of wellies when you’re heading out for a night on the town.
These ankle welly Muck Boots are fantastic alternative. With the waterproof properties of traditional wellington boots and modern style, they’re versatile and perfect for wearing in wet and muddy conditions. The neoprene lining makes them comfortable and warm to wear too.
Get Cosy and Comfortable
In winter we’re spending more time at home so don’t overlook the importance of a good loungewear wardrobe. Investing in some decent pieces for sleep and those work at home days when you just don’t feel like getting dressed will ensure you stay comfy without feeling like a slob.
This flannel sleepwear set by Polo Ralph Lauren is a classic style in a navy tartan print that’s perfect for the winter months. Nothing keeps you feeling toasty like flannel pyjamas.
A good pair of slippers is also essential. These UGG scuff suede sheepskin lined slippers are amazingly warm and comfortable and make a great Christmas gift too.
Adding an extra layer or two means you can keep wearing your spring and autumn favourites without freezing.
Opt for basic layering pieces in colours are flexible like this overshirt in dark blue by BOSS. Just wear it over a white t-shirt and some denim jeans for an effortless casual look that keeps you warm without being bulky.
