Men's Winter Wardrobe Essentials

“Dressing well is a form of good manners.” - Tom Ford

Earlier fashion was associated with both men and women. Flip through any fashion magazines or movies of the 1930s to the 80s, and you can’t help but be amazed by men’s winter clothes. The style and confidence men possessed during this era can make women fall in love with them at first sight. Fast forward to 2023 and we see celebrities being heavily trolled for dressing shabbily during their product launching events or movie premieres. This trend equally influences regular men’s winter wear. I guess no man feels pride in being underdressed and looks like a ‘frozen bummer’’. 

So let’s find out how to be at the top of the men's winter fashion game. We will go through a range of layers, textures, and accessories to explore the secret sauce of a well-curated men's winter wardrobe that seamlessly combines functionality and fashion. Let’s take a deep dive into: 

Elements of Men's Winter Wardrobe

The clothing items mentioned in men’s winter style guide are not just ‘nice to haves’, rather they are essentials that complete your winter wardrobe. So let’s start with the basics: 

1. The Foundation: Thermal Layers

The basis of men’s winter wear or rather we can say the foundation of men’s wardrobe, shirts or t-shirts keeps you comfortable throughout the day. High-quality cotton or synthetic shirts keep you cosy without adding bulk. You must add several of these to your wardrobe to mix and match with various bottoms and outerwear. Some of the best ones on Instafab Plus are Men's Red Artistic Romance Shirt, Sage Green Printed Casual Shirt, Men's Beige & Brown Contrast Paint Lines Shirt, Men's Beige Contrast Tartan Plaid Shirt, Men's Midnight Blue Self-Design Horizontal Striped T-Shirt, Men's Olive Green Self-Design Horizontal Striped T-Shirt and more.

2. Insulating Mid-Layers: Sweaters, Sweatshirts and Hoodies

Depending on the weather, men might need a mid-layer as a snug, comfortable sweater or hoodie. It keeps you warm and adds an element of interest. You can also experiment with different textures like cable knit or cashmere to take your winter-style game up a notch. Some great examples of such pieces are Plus Size Men's Black & Mustard Yellow Contrast Panel Sweatshirt, Plus Size Men's Olive Green Mushroom Hoodie, Striped Turtle Neck Woollen Pullover or Men Plus-Size Olive Green Textured Knit Pullover Sweater. 

3. Outer Armour: Jackets and Coats

No winter wardrobe is complete without a selection of jackets and coats. You have the freedom to pick yours among classic wool coats, trendy puffer jackets, fleece jackets and more. Outerwear like jackets and coats shield you from the elements while also working as a statement piece tying your entire look together. Welcome pieces like Blue Quilted Puffer Jacket With Zip-Closure, Plus Size Men's Brown Zip-Front Jacket With Fleece Detail, Plus Size Men's Light Grey Double-Breasted Jacket With Hoodie, Black Zip-Front Puffer Jacket With Ribbed Hem in your wardrobe. 

4. Bottoms Matter: Cargos and Denims

While the focus often hovers around the upper body, your ensemble is only completed with chic bottoms. Rock this winter by including regular-fit denim jeans, solid stylish casual denim jeans, beige cargo trousers, blue cargo trousers, sage green cargo trousers, maroon cargo trousers and men's side-striped casual denim jeans in men’s winter clothing collection. 

Bonus Tip: When you are not in the mood for pairing up topwear and bottom wear or love monochrome pieces, go for winter-appropriate co-ord sets like men’s plus size green co-ord set, solid blue co-ords set or stylish casual co-ord set. 

5 Tips to Choose the Right Men’s Winter Clothes

Here is a list of tips and tricks that you can follow as a men’s winter style guide: 

  1. It’s best to choose winter wear in fabrics like wool, cashmere, synthetic, and fleece to retain heat and be ready as per men’s winter fashion trends/classics. 
  2. It’s better to layer after layer rather than be uncomfortable and fall sick from bone-shaking chills. Underdressed when everyone around you is covered head to toe only makes you look out of place. So remember that each layer serves a purpose – be it keeping you warm or ‘stylish man of the month’.
  3. Choose winter wear based on your lifestyle. If you're constantly on the move, lightweight yet warm winter wear is for you. Work-from-home professionals can choose cosy, relaxed fits that blend comfort and style.
  4. Never compromise with the cloth’s fit. Baggy clothes might be the trend but trendy pieces are not for everyone. It’s classics that win the race of timelessness. 
  5. Select pieces that take no effort to transition from casual to formal settings. 

As the winter season unfolds, it’s time to invest in a well-curated wardrobe that is easy to team up with your other wardrobe essentials and helps you make a statement everywhere you go. So, gentlemen, step out in style with essential men's winter wardrobe options available on Instafab Plus.
