Despite the bleakness that winter can sometimes exude, there are so many things that people love about the coldest season of the year. Snowflakes, being with the family by the fireplace, cozying up with a loved one - these are just some of the reasons why there are people who are endeared to winter. For some, though, they love this season because once again, they'll be able to pull out those winter clothes from their closet.
For men who are into fashion, they also carefully choose the outfits they wear whenever they step out into the cold and in the snow. If you're a guy who wants to look stylish even during the snowy season, here are tips you can follow to avoid committing winter fashion faux pas:
Don't replace the classic winter hat - There are enterprising hat makers that can commit a terrible fashion crime of creating novelty hats that look atrocious. The major priority when getting a winter hat is functionality. You're wearing one primarily for protecting your head from extreme cold and not to make your head a showcase for silly-looking headpieces. Stick to classic winter hats like fedoras, ski caps, bowlers, and newsboy hats.
Leather up - Battling the elements like snow can be best done by wearing clothes with synthetic fibers. And wearing a leather jacket is a no-brainer. What's great about leather is it has the 2 essential F’s: fashionable and functional. If your budget allows you to purchase only one or two leather jackets, choose black for its color so it can be paired with anything you wear inside.
Wear your vest - During winter, you can wear your best by wearing your vest. These sleeveless pieces not only add extra protection against the cold, but can also be an excellent additional fashion piece to your overall getup.
Wear a scarf - A scarf is another piece that can both protect you from the cold as well as provide a good accent to your attire. The neck is one of the foremost areas in our body that releases heat. Containing that heat with a scarf can help keep your body warmer. Of course, you have to learn how to tie your scarf properly.
Boots to boot - Your getup for your trek in winter wonderland won't be complete without a pair of boots. Don't make the mistake of wearing those UGG boots, lest you elicit second long but awkward glances. There are plenty of pairs out there that can make you look all dressed up and with somewhere to go.
Winter fashion doesn't have to be tricky. The key is to stick to the basics and not to go experimenting on pieces that will turn you from fab to drab.
