The winter season is a huge time of the year in the fashion calendar, with the need for extra clothing to keep you warm opening up the door to outfits with more layers and textures, ensuring that you’ve got a fit that’s tailor-made for the conditions. Whilst it’s important to stay comfortable, you’ll want to avoid sacrificing style in the process – don’t worry, it’s easy to do if you know how! Check out our top tips for styling your fits this winter as well as the top trends to bring into your repertoire to keep your style game one step ahead.
If you haven’t already jumped on this movement, now is the perfect time to do so – the temperatures are dropping and joggers are a great way to keep yourself warm without feeling restricted when you’re trying to move around. They also look great when worn well, so they’re the complete package! You’ve got a few options when it comes to men’s joggers in terms of streetwear, with relaxed fit track pants having a more casual vibe, whereas skinny fit tech joggers have a far smarter appearance that gives more definition to your body for a more flattering look. In the modern-day, smart joggers can now be worn in more scenarios than ever; we’ve seen them starting to creep into the office recently and we can only see that getting more and more commonplace over time.
A word of caution when it comes to joggers: it’s about HOW you wear them rather than what you’re wearing, so be sure to couple them with something that’s scenario appropriate to nail the look in any situation.
Outdoor Performance Gear
Winter means cold weather, blustery winds, and an onslaught of rain, snow, and ice, so it’s no surprise that we’re seeing performance gear starting to creep into everyday streetwear outfits – particularly coats in bold, vibrant colourways. Puffer coats are still being seen frequently, but it’s the resurgence of parkas that are stealing the show in AW19 season! The fur-lined hoods and long, silhouette defining pieces have been in and out of style constantly since they first came onto the outerwear scene, but this time could they be here to stay? With some of the fantastic takes on the style we’ve seen this season, including the addition of eye-catching colours that stray from the previously monochrome designs, we’d be inclined to say yes!
Experimental textures have been a huge hit in this recent season, paying homage to styles from the 1970s with the colours and materials that are being used. When it comes to bringing a touch of the 70s into your fits, you’ll want to be looking at fur-lined pieces, thick suede, and textures along those lines if you want to nail the trend. With this style, it’s important to stick to just one piece in each ensemble – anything
more and the outfit can start to look a little dodgy and garish. Stick a fleece over a fresh tracksuit or complete your look with a suede jacket for a simple, effortlessly stylish vibe this winter.
There’s plenty of styles lurking about that are perfect for a winter wardrobe, you’ve just got to find the perfect pieces to add to your streetwear collection! Whether you’re looking for some smart skinny joggers to add to your office-wear selection or a sweet fleece to add a 70s vibe to a casual ensemble that’ll also give you an extra thermal layer to keep you warm against the wintery conditions outside, there’s something for everyone. Be sure to experiment with different streetwear trends to try and find the perfect combination during AW19 – you could just stumble across a creative new look that has heads turning and trend-followers copying!
