With winter on the way it is the time to start getting our wardrobes ready for the change in seasons. Winter is a time when we want to wrap up warm and cosy, yet not sacrifice our style in the process. There are many ways to do this – a capsule winter wardrobe with a few good quality pieces in it such as Superdry menswear from ejmenswear.com is one thing that will help you to achieve a good winter look, and then you can use accessories to change outfits about and alter their style. Here are some accessories to bear in mind when shopping for your winter wardrobe…
Hats – Hats are a fantastic way to bring a little something extra to your outfit. There are many different styles of hat, and they also have the added bonus of course of keeping your head warm on chilly days! A classic flat cap is a style staple that is great for the winter and can be worn in the town or out to the races for example. Think the peaky blinders look and you get a good idea! For a more casual hat, go for a deerstalker or trapper hat – an effortlessly chic look which will keep your ears and head warm on those brisk wintery walks in the woods.
Cufflinks – These are something which can add a special touch to a smart outfit – whether at a work meeting or a Christmas party, select your cufflinks with care. Think about the occasion – you don’t want anything that has too much of a novelty value if you are going to be in a very formal environment. The colours and metals in the cufflinks should also be chosen carefully, and you could match it to your shirt or tie for a well put together look.
Scarves – Scarves are another item for the winter that are both practical and also help to make an outfit look well put together. Good quality knitwear is important in these chilly months and scarves are no exception – a good scarf will last you a long time, so have a look at lots of different styles and colours. You can get a neutral toned scarf to go with everything, or a bright coloured one to add a splash of colour on a grey day – red is set to be the colour of this season.
Belts – A belt is something that is necessary for many outfits. A high-quality leather belt will give you many years of service – the key when choosing a good belt is to get the right size. It should ideally be approximately an inch or two longer than your actual waist size, so bear that in mind when you are going belt shopping.
Watch – A good watch is something that is a real statement piece. Many men take great pride in collecting watches. However if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to a Rolex, there are many other good quality brands that don’t cost as much – ideally you should have a watch for everyday wear and a dress watch that you can use for more formal occasions.
