TIPS TO PROPERLY LAYER CLOTHES FOR THE COLD WEATHER

 

Layering clothes is a fun habit that you should carry out every morning or the night before with optimism and bliss. 

The starting point is to stare at your wardrobe for a couple of minutes to scan your clothes. From your bottoms to your shirts, you should go over everything. 

Then, you got to think about which kind of outfit you are looking for: formal to go to the office, casual to go out with friends, elegant to meet your date…

Each occasion demands for different suitable outfits. Comprehending that is the fundamental fashion concept. Once you have internalized that, you have to evolve to be more unique and original with your looks.

If you want to get the most out of your silhouette, bet on mixing volumes and textures. Go ahead and combine wool, leather or suede garments in the same look.

 

Bottoms

 

We recommend you to start picking the bottom when creating your outfit for the day. The pants make the difference and severely determine which sweater or shirt you should pick later.

The bottom basics are dark jeans for more relaxed days and pleated pants for special events or work. The materials make the difference when it comes to the sensation people have when looking at your outfit.

Fashion is all about the perception and the idea we create in our minds about the person who is wearing the outfit. That is why it is so important to choose well nad follow our best instincts if we want to be perceived just as we are.

A specific tip we want to share with you is that white is kind of a forbidden color for winter bottoms, but beiges and black ones are crucial for men’s wardrobes. Moreover, it is quite common that men live in joggers to feel comfy. Yet, it is better to only wear them at home or to work out.

 

Upper part

 

After that, you will want to start layering your shirt, sweater, turtleneck, waistcoat or knitwear. Above all, your shirts, sweaters and jackets must adapt perfectly to your body shape and fit you like a glove.

The best thing is to get plenty of black, white, grey, blue and brown clothing to combine easily and effectively. Some greens and bordeaux pieces are also basics. Other more striking and jazzy colors like orange or red are amazing if you want to dress modern and juvenile. It depends on the person.

It is better if you buy both clothes with lighter and darker tones to combine them with harmony. We are seeking a balance. The hues and tones should be subtly distinct. The white-black combo is always an intelligent and safe choice.

Besides, knitwear is an excellent item for winter. It has its cozy side, but it also upgrades men’s outfits for them to be more thoughtful and trendy. The jacket to pick most of the days for winter would be a long coat. It makes men look flawless and classy, just like a gentleman.

However, if you do not identify with that style, a shorter one is fine as long as it is a good-quality denim, fleece, waxed cotton jacket or parka. A leather motorcycle jacket or trench coats are also good options for concrete looks.

It all varies depending on the occasion and your plan. Still, do not mix fancy clothes with very casual ones and the other way round. It is a matter of common sense.

 

THE GREAT POWER OF WINTER ACCESSORIES

 

Winter fashion opens up a whole universe of clothing choices that may seem tricky, but it is actually favorable.

That applies to the accessories and the shoes, for which a man should develop a taste and intuition to pick the correct ones. A great tie or belt makes you shine and gives you a distinctive aura.

Shoes should match the outfit and vice versa. Even so, a recent trend that has developed consists of combining trainers with suits or other formal clothes. That is a modern way of wearing a neat and fresh look at the same time. It is always better to keep it safe and simple, but innovating is also a must in fashion.

Also, when the weather gets really cold, a scarf and some gloves are indispensable for protecting yourself from the freezing weather and keeping your winter look stylish. For example, a cashmere or silky scarf is a soft and decorous fashion hit.

When it comes to headgear, a basic beanie or a beret will keep you warm when the temperature drops. A hat is a highlight for many outfits, but you should be confident wearing it. If you feel hesitant about hats, then do not wear them. It is kind of a signature. Those quality details will differentiate you from others.
