It’s often difficult to know how to stay stylish and warm-especially for men. However, there are many small changes you can make to your existing wardrobe that can elevate your style. Just making a few small changes to your everyday outfits can make you look instantly more fashionable. Elevate your winter wardrobe with a few simple steps today.
Keep Clothes Tight
In the winter, warmth is one of the most important things to factor in when deciding your outfit. Just like you get gloves for your hands, it’s imperative that you select clothes that will keep your whole body warm. Swapping your wide-leg jeans for skinny jeans can be a good way to stop cold air getting into your body. Having strong fabric like denim close to your body can also help to keep your body warm. Skinny jeans can also look incredibly stylish in winter when paired with big jumpers and coats- this can make the outfit look more ‘editorial’ and balanced out. This is a good way to keep out freezing winds.
Add Stylish Accessories
Keeping warm doesn’t mean you have to look less stylish. There are many ways to add accessories such as scarves, gloves and hats to your everyday outfits without sacrificing style. Looking closely at your other clothes will help you know which hats and gloves to select. What fabrics and colours do you normally go for? If you’re more of a neutral tone dresser, adding some jewel-toned hats and scarves to your outfits can be a great way to add a bit of flair to your winter outfit. Looking at the popular hats this season (recent in-style hats include berets, bright beanie hats and flat caps) can help you make a hat choice that will elevate your outfit instantly. You don’t have to sacrifice style for warmth this winter.
Layer Your Outfits
Layering clothes is not a new concept. Layers keep you warm. However, the art of layering clothes can really make your outfits much more stylish if you know how to do it right. One tip for this is to really consider the fabrics of your clothes, as texture is important when it comes to layering. Varying textures can add depth and contrast to your look, but it’s important that the textures don’t clash too much. Chunky outerwear paired with the right base layer can be a great stylish streetwear look.
Unfortunately, cotton retains water. So if you get caught in the freezing winter rain, cotton is not a good fabric as it will keep you cold. This can lead to a quite miserable winter day! In winter, it’s a lot better to wear fabrics such as cashmere or wool. These fabrics are very good at keeping you warm.
Invest in Thermals
The winter months can be very miserable because of how cold they are. Thermal clothes can be a great way to stay warm, and nowadays they can be made available in lots of different styles. Finding the right thermal top to layer underneath your outfits can be a great way to keep warm. Thermal socks don’t have to be bulky and unseemly anymore either- the right thermal socks will go with any shoe, even the trendiest designer sneakers. Investing in thermal items can make your outfits a lot more warm- and you don’t need to sacrifice fashion, either.
Looking to update your wardrobe? Here are some of the best and most timeless picks that you can add to your closet this winter for some effortless, eternal style.
A long coat is one of the best picks for winter. An overcoat with lapels is one of the most chic, timeless fashion trends.

If you’re a fan of streetwear, the classic tracksuit is a great way to stay stylish but warm during the winter months. They are comfy, and stretchy, which is ideal for lounging around in the house.
