Are you updating your wardrobe for the winter months? Searching for some fashion inspiration to help you layer up in the colder climes? As we head into the chilly season, it’s time to wrap up and plan for all of the extreme weather.
Whether you’re heading to the office or trying to shift the snow from your driveway, here are some on-trend ideas as seen on the runways to make you look good even as you realize you’ve run out of de-icer for your windscreen. Wallets when you are ready, gents!
How to Feel Cozy & look Dynamic this Winter
Winter means one thing: layers! And one of the easiest materials to layer up in is leather. This durable material offers high levels of practicality while its sleek and chic style makes it synonymous with the effortlessly cool crowd.
Both dramatic oversized leather coats and slick biker jackets were seen at shows such as Fendi and Paul Smith. Channel your inner James Dean or go full Matrix to make the most of this trend.
Shearling is a timeless investment that will see you through many winters to come. This year, there were shearling coats at Armani and Hermes in a showcase of how enduring this style is.
Warm, snug and textured, shearling jackets – such as these from Belstaff – are worth every penny and will keep you toasty this winter.
Everyone is getting funky in ’70s shades of brown this season. Designers such as Fendi and Louis Vuitton sent models down the runway in rust-colored two-pieces, tan-colored blazers, and uber ’70s bomber jackets. A nod to this look in a warm brown blazer or go all-out in a full suit. Select your shade carefully, though. Chocolate hues work best.
Checks are on everything, from bags and scarfs to jumpers and jackets. Labels such as Versace paired vibrant checked jackets with neat tartan trousers while everything was big at Mari, with pieces adorned with oversized checks.
If you’re thinking of going with this look, you can try a classic tartan flannel shirt with your jeans or invest in a check overcoat if that’s your thing.
Back to the ’90s
Grab your glowsticks! It’s time to party like it’s 1999 in shell suits and chunky trainers. Prada has never quite left this decade behind, so it makes sense that the labeled the charge with this one, with cagoules clashed with checks.
If you don’t feel quite brave enough to go full tracksuit, try some attention-grabbing trainers and a bucket hat. If you still have some leftover in your wardrobe from the first time around, then even better! Which look will you go for this season? Will you wrap up in shearling or go full Gallagher brothers and be a ’90s man?
