That bitter cold weather has started to creep up on us, so it’s time to start getting the best clothing pieces into your winter wardrobe. And we’ve made it a hundred times easier to stay stylish over the next few frosty months by compiling this list of winter wardrobe essentials.
1. KNITTED JUMPER
First and foremost, a thick knitted jumper is the perfect piece to wrap up warm in this Winter. Try a bold colour, like a bright blue or red, and match it with some dark denim for a crisp contrast.
2. BLACK JEANS
Black jeans, or any pair of dark denim, is another absolute must. They’re perfect for styling as they go with pretty much anything. Make sure they’re tapered all the way down the leg and try rolling them up once or twice to expose some ankle and elevate your overall style.
3. PUFFER JACKET
A quality puffer jacket will elevate your style game by a tenfold. We’d recommend going for a black one as it’s easiest to match with lots of different outfits, but for the more adventurous amongst you, feel free to grab yourself one with a bold colour or pattern.
The turtleneck is the perfect layering piece, which is an essential part of every man’s winter fashion. You can layer it under a jumper or hoodie on particularly cold days, or simply wear it under a short-sleeved t-shirt for a chic and edgy appeal.

5. LEATHER JACKET
The leather jacket is an iconic staple in men’s fashion, and so should not be left out of your winter wardrobe. It compliments both formal and casual outfits, so it’s good for all occasions. However, stay away from the cheaper versions as they will look plastic and tacky. You’re better off investing in a good quality leather jacket as it will last much longer.
A strong and sturdy pair of boots is your ideal Winter footwear if you want to change things up from wearing trainers. Try a pair of Dr Martens or Timberlands and match with some tapered jeans.
7. FLANNEL SHIRT
The flannel shirt is a staple autumn/winter piece that any guy can wear and look great in. You could style it traditionally by buttoning it up or give it a modern twist by wearing it open over a plain tee or turtleneck.
8. BEANIE HAT
A beanie hat is the best winter accessory that’s as easy to get wrong as it is to get right. Make sure you stay away from the cheap fabrics to avoid a saggy bit at the back. Instead, find yourself a snug fitting beanie made from a good quality material.
The windbreaker is an on-trend piece that can simply be layered above a jumper or hoodie to create a chic look. Better still, the waterproof material will ensure you’re stylishly combatting the harsh winter elements.
10. LONG SOCKS
Finally, a pair of long socks completes this list of essential winter pieces. They’re perfect for layering underneath some tapered or wide-leg jeans. Not only will they instantly make you more stylish, but they’ll also help you to combat that colder weather.
You’re now set to go about your winter days looking stylish from head-to-toe. Just make sure you’re creative with your outfits and colours, and the rest will come together.
