6 Winter Wardrobe Essentials Every Man Needs

They say that fashion fades but style is eternal, which is why many people choose to have a capsule wardrobe, filled with the essentials that you can mix and match. But as the seasons change, often you need some updates to create a stylish sartorial arsenal. Your white sneakers, plain tee, and jeans can be great for spring and summer, but if you live somewhere where winter is really winter, then it is a good idea to add a few extra things to your collection. Here are a few of the things that you should be getting right now, to look good, as well as keep warm.

Winter Boots

It has been said that there is no such thing as bad weather, it can just be your outfit choice that makes the weather bad. If you’re not prepared or dressed for the winter weather, then it will be pretty bad. Walking to walk in the snow wearing loafers is never going to be a good thing, but having some winter boots or snow boots is a must. They can be worn with jeans for a casual look, as well as used for the practical side of things for the icy and cold winter weather.

Parka Coat

From hiking in the snow to watching your kids play soccer on a rainy December morning, there are so many reasons why having a parka coat is a good idea. They are practical with a warm and large hood to keep hair dry and rain off your face, but they look great too. They can be dressed up or dressed down, and are warm and cozy. Better yet, they are very on-trend this season.


With the holidays coming up, having a selection of sweaters to choose from is always a good thing. If you look at the styles that places like The Sweatershop have on for sale, you can see that a merino wool blend is usually a good way to go. They keep you warm and look good too. If you’re feeling extra fancy, then getting an ‘ugly sweater’ is a must for holiday parties, right?

Flannel Collar Shirt

A flannel shirt is such a versatile piece of clothing, that it is a must for this time of year. It helps to add extra layers, as it can be worn under blazers and jackets, as well as working well buttoned up and under a sweater. It can just look good with jeans and sneakers too for a casual holiday shopping look.

Fair Isle Socks

Getting into the festive and holiday spirit isn’t something that everyone can easily do. But throw in some thick fair isle socks and it can be easy to feel that little bit more festive. Worn with your winter boots and denim you have the warmest feet around.

Double-Breasted Blazer

Another wardrobe essential that you may already have, but is a winner at this time of year is a double-breasted blazer as it will see you through many different situations. It is another thing that can be dressed up or dressed down. It is also a winner because it wraps around your stomach area, giving a much needed extra layer in the cold.
