It’s almost time to switch your wardrobe to wintry clothing and pieces that will protect you from the changing weather. Come rain or shine, autumn is only around the corner and it’s got everyone excited for a fashion update. Whether you’re on the lookout for a brand new winter wardrobe or just a few key pieces, it’s the perfect time to invest in some new autumn and winter clothing.
One of the biggest updates to your seasonal wardrobe is outerwear. Jackets will quickly become a staple part of your wardrobe in the coming months, so make sure you look as stylish as you are warm. From men’s streetwear jackets to more tailored options, there’s plenty to choose from this season.
Padded and Quilted Jackets
Padded jackets have become a popular style year after year, but in 2018 they were seen everywhere in the men’s fashion shows. Both Versace and Prada debuted bright, classic padded coats that offered both style and comfort. Easy to wear, they are a streetwear staple and can be worn with any number of different looks, from jeans to tracksuit joggers.
Your quilted jacket this season should be bold; think bright blue or orange for a standout look this winter. What’s more, quilted jackets are renowned for being particularly lightweight and might even take you through to spring if the cold weather persists!
Technical outerwear has been emerging in menswear for some time now, with the windcheater jacket becoming a developing trend for the upcoming season. Known for its practicality, windcheaters are particularly great for tackling the wind and rain. Advanced materials make windcheater jackets an iconic style, providing the perfect solution for the changeable weather of autumn.
Usually designed in block colors, choose a darker shade to see you through the winter or keep it bright to contrast with the grey skies. With a casual style, windcheater jackets are a particularly popular addition to an urban wardrobe.
A style that never seems to go out of fashion, the shearling jacket is a smarter approach to winter dressing. A quality shearling coat can last you more than one season and will keep you warm when braving the elements. Look for contemporary shearling jackets that mix suede, leather, and faux fur, or keep it simple with a traditional design.
Shearling jackets for men can take your look from day to night easily and can be worn for a casual or smart appearance. Stick to neutral shades like brown, black or grey for a classic look.
Overcoats are perfect for cold winter evenings, especially if you’re hoping to wear smart attire. Wear with jeans and a jumper, or even wear with a suit if the occasion arises. Consider buying an oversized style; not only is it right on trend but means you can still wear your biggest jumper underneath it!
When it comes to choosing the color of your overcoat, brown is the go-to shade for AW18. Think tobacco brown, taupe and chocolate for a sophisticated and stylish look.
