Winter accessories for men are still very much on the male fashion agenda. As much as the fashion world would have us believe it’s time for spring with the unveiling of new spring/summer collections on their catwalks and in the shops. It is in fact still winter and still rather painful to be outside sans decent winter accessories.
Winter accessories are a definite for this time of year, and as we are set for quite a few more weeks of coldness then it’s time to look at how to wear accessories to stay warm and stylish this winter. Celebrities like David Beckham, Robert Pattinson and Jake Gyllenhaal show just how good you can look in on trend and stylish men’s winter accessories. The key to this is to avoid bulking up too much.
Choose a lovely slim line scarf in a neutral wintery shade of plum, grey or navy. Cashmere, merino or fine wool are the warmest and most luxe fabrics. Bear this in mind if you are thinking of buying a scarf that needs to do for both relaxed weekends and work suits. Getting to grips with winter accessories for men means that you can easily move into spring based accessories; as the weather gets warmer, you can change to a cotton based scarf that can be draped casually around the neck for a more fashion forward look. Check out our blog on how to wear scarves for tips on the different ways in which a scarf can be worn.
The other men’s winter accessories you need to consider are a beanie hat and gloves. Gloves are fairly easy if you follow the rules of leather, wool and dark colours. Driving gloves outside of the car are a big no -no, as are those huge gloves you wear in the garden. Hats are a bit trickier and can often spoil a smart look; choose a relaxed but not sloppy beanie in a grey, navy, khaki or black and spend some time getting to grips with how to put it on. Try pulling it further down at the base of the skulk and letting in come up higher on the forehead.
