But you don’t have to succumb to the tacky Christmas jumpers adorned with gaudy snowmen and seasonal pop culture references that mercilessly flood shops at this time of the year; knitwear is both effortlessly stylish and endlessly practical in the colder months when you want to stay warm and look good.
Firstly, you can never go wrong with a well fitting knitted jumper, especially when building on it with some layering. Plain layers such as these grey or black jumpers from Hugo Boss with a collared shirt beneath a grey or black wool coat or leather jacket, when paired with some boots and a pair of dark jeans, creates a time-tested look which is both smart and comfortable.

You can easily accessorise with a knitted hat like this burgundy Franklin Marshall beanie or this Edwin United green beanie to add a splash of colour in an otherwise monochrome outfit such as the one suggested above.
On the subject of beanies, sometimes the best knitwear to incorporate into your winter wardrobe resides in the availability of countless fashionable accessories. Luckily, it is not uncommon to find a matching set of hats, gloves, and scarves to complete your outfit, like the G Star Raw set which comes in both grey and navy blue.
Alternatively you can find plenty of individual accessories such as this grey and navy knitted scarf from Hugo Boss which you can mix and match as you please.
If you’re looking for something of a statement piece for your wardrobe, there are knitted trainers on the market too. Nike Air have several styles of flyknit trainers available such as this blue pair.
Though they might not be for everyone, knit trainers are certainly an adventurous addition to your wardrobe for those men who stay on the go in winter months.
