From the heartland of Texas all the way to the coast of New England, winter has arrived in the form of drastically low temperatures and aggressive snowstorms. Thankfully, there are 5 clothing essentials for winter that ensure you’ll look great throughout the cold months ahead.
Need to make a good first impression? Your overcoat is the best way to do it.
Whether you’re walking to work, or headed to an important business meeting, your overcoat is the first thing that your client’s will notice. Typically we rely on an impactful suit, shirt or tie to make a statement, but during winter they are hidden under an overcoat. That’s why it’s important your coat exemplifies sophistication, style, and elegance. Hence, why cashmere is the perfect fabric.
A cashmere overcoat is one of the best investments you can make, because it is lightweight, exceptionally warm, drapes smoothly, and looks incredible. Aside from being ascetically pleasing, cashmere is also practical. It weighs less than wool, meaning your coat will keep you equally as warm, but only weigh half a much. Let’s face it, no one wants to lug around a 10lb coat in the snow.
Three-Piece Flannel Suit
The British are invading America once again – only this time it’s in the form of flannel. From windowpanes to pinstripes, the three-piece flannel suit is both warm and incredibly stylish.
Made from brushed wool, flannel retains heat exceptionally well and is less prone to wrinkling. Making it the perfect suit for traveling or visiting multiple offices in one day.
By adding a vest to your suit you’ll gain versatility, style and the warmth you’ll need in the middle of winter. Once spring hits, feel free to ditch the vest and wear the suit as a two-piece.
The best way to wear cotton in winter is with corduroy. A stylish alternative to jeans or wool slacks, corduroy is the ultimate transitional fabric. Its versatility and chameleon-like abilities allow corduroy to work for various style combinations.
For a casual look, wear your cords with a button-down shirt and a lightweight sweater overtop. For a night on the town, dress them up by pairing them with a sport coat and patterned shirt. We guarantee this will be your go-to slack this season.
Flannel – Glen Plaid Sport Coat
A glen plaid sport coat is great for incorporating color and pattern into your wardrobe. Due to the brushed look of flannel, the glen plaid pattern in the jacket appears muted and less bold. This softened effect is great for conservative men, who are looking to branch out, but don’t want to go too far down the fashion rabbit hole. The colorful glen plaid pattern will give them the ability to incorporate various colors that they otherwise wouldn’t gravitate towards.
Instead of getting lost in a sea of black and grey, stand out with color. Brighten up an otherwise dark and dreary winter outfit with a pair of colorful socks. Pair them with a matching scarf, and your everyday charcoal suit will instantly come to life.
With these 5 Winter Essentials, your wardrobe will undoubtedly stand out in all the right ways.
