5 Must Have Winter Wardrobe Essentials

Jackets become big coats, short sleeved becomes long sleeved & one layer becomes three layers. Like it or not, winter is upon us. And there’s one key goal of winter fashion for men and that’s to stay warm. But how do you stay warm and nail the men’s winter style? Just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style. We’ve got 5 must have men’s winter wardrobe essentials to help you keep warm and stay cool this winter.

Puffer Coat

Puffer coats are one of the most popular styles of coats for men during the winter months. And that’s with good reason. First and most practically, they’re a great choice to protect against the elements. Puffer coats are great at insulating against the cold. The coat's quilted design helps to trap heat, keeping you warm even in extremely cold conditions. Not only this, most good puffer coats are water resistant too. The material on the outside of the coat prevents moisture from penetrating, making it an ideal choice for wet winter weather. 

Puffers are also extremely versatile and can be worn in many social situations, be it a few drinks down the pub, to the Christmas markets or out for a meal. When it comes to men’s winter fashion, a puffer coat isn’t something you want to skimp on.

Hoodies

The staple of any men’s winter wardrobe, having an array of hoodies and sweatshirts in your winter arsenal is something you’re not going to regret. They're comfortable, stylish and versatile, and most importantly they’re warm. They can also be dressed up or down to suit any occasion. Hoodies are also great for layering, so you can stay warm without sacrificing your outfit. Whether you're looking for a casual piece to wear around the house or a more sophisticated option for a night out, hoodies are the ideal choice. 

Winter Trousers

There’s one winter wardrobe essential that doesn't have to be a compromise for the cold: trousers. Designed to keep you warm without sacrificing style, winter trousers come in a variety of colors, cuts and styles to suit any taste. Just make sure to look for trousers that are made with premium fabrics to give you the best chance of keeping you warm.

Training Gear

Training doesn’t need to stop in the winter. As the old saying goes (whether it’s true or not): summer bodies are made in the winter. With this in mind, make sure you’re kitted out with sports clothing that helps you keep training through the colder months.

When it comes to winter sports gear, there are a few key things to look for. First, on your top half - layering up with a quarter zip and a windbreaker outer layer should do the trick nicely. And then investing in some versatile, sweat wickering tracksuit bottoms for those morning outdoor runs is recommended too.

Tracksuits

When the temperature drops and the wind starts to bite, it's essential to have clothing that will keep you warm and comfortable. That's where warm tracksuits come in. A good quality tracksuit is made from thick fabric that will insulate your body heat, keeping you toasty even on the chilliest of days. Plus, a tracksuit top is perfect for layering. You can wear it over a long-sleeved shirt or under a coat for extra warmth. Whether you're running errands on a cold day or just relaxing at home, a tracksuit is the perfect men’s winter style essential.

Men’s Winter Style

If there’s one thing for certain, men’s winter fashion can be tricky to navigate. Luckily though, you don’t need to compromise on style and with the above pieces in your wardrobe you can stay stylish while keeping warm too. 

When choosing your winter wardrobe, a good place to start with winter styles for men is with a great coat. Look for something that's both stylish and practical, like a puffer coat. You'll also need a few good hoodies and sweaters, which can be layered under your coat for extra warmth. And don't forget about your lower half, keeping your legs warm with a smart pair of winter trousers is essential. With these key pieces in your wardrobe, you'll be ready to take on whatever winter throws your way.
