Written by: Bronwen Collins | January 21, 2019.

Keeping warm this January is on everyone’s mind lately. So what should men wear in winter? We admit we’ve talked about coats and boots a lot this year, but with the snow on its way, we want to provide those last minute tips to help you stay warm throughout the coldest months of the year.

From accessories to smart layering, there’s a lot you can do to keep the frost at bay. Here are our 5 essentials for men’s winter clothing, and the easy way to keep warm this winter.

Gloves, Hats & Scarfs

Gloves, hats and scarfs are often forgotten, lost or simply ignored. They can feel chunky and childish and often will ruin an outfit. That’s why we recommend you go for a matching set that will only add to what you’re wearing. Not only can your scarfs and gloves keep you warm, but they can look great too.

For a more sophisticated look try a pair of premium wool gloves from Gant.

A beanie is a practical and easy option when it comes to hats. Our favourite is this ribbed beanie in blue from Fred Perry.

When it comes to scarfs, try to make them match your gloves. We have a number of glove and scarf kits here.

Smart Layering

Winter is all about layering your clothes until it’s difficult to bend your elbows. Jumpers are essential for keeping warm this winter. Coming in a variety of styles, you can either make an impact with your designer jumpers or stick to neutral tones like black, grey and blue so you can wear your favourite jumper with most outfits.

Flannel Shirts

100% cotton shirts are much softer and warmer than thinner, summer shirts. A flannel shirt is therefore perfect for winter months and great for layering.

Tough Boots

We love designer trainers more than anything, but they might not be the best option when it’s snowing. That’s why you need to invest in a pair of tough boots. Chukka boots will look smart and keep your toes warm no matter what the weather. Our favourites are these brown chukka boots from Red Wing.

A Stylish Parka

Finally, your main piece to combat the cold should definitely be a weather-ready parka. Tough and stylish, stick to earthy tones like green and brown to match that winter weather and ensure you can wear your trusty parka with everything.
