Some men have it, some men don’t. We’re talking about the ability to style. Here are some winter accessory tips to help you put together your look flawlessly.
Wrap it up: Scarves
The jury is out on the best way for a man to wear a scarf. Some people knot, some people drape, but here is some advice to keep you looking sharp.
If you’re wearing a scarf – make sure you are wearing a jumper or jacket. There is no greater fashion sin (except maybe white leather shoes) than wearing a scarf with a t-shirt.
If you have a thick, chunky knitted scarf you would be best to do the old faithful looping trick. Fold in half, wrap around your neck and loop the ends through the fold.
For something a little thinner, drape the scarf around your shoulders and wrap it back around. This creates a less structured look, perfect for a light scarf under a casual blazer.
Head Game: Hats for Winter
If you think you need to be a bearded hipster to pull of a winter hat, you only have to look to the street style of London Fashion week to stand corrected. Hats have made a comeback in suiting, so embrace your gentlemanly side and don a hat to finish your look and keep your head warm.
If you’re brave, a knitted beanie can work for a more casual look.
The Combo: Ties & Pocket Squares
Experiment with different textiles for ties & pocket squares in winter. Knitted ties are the perfect way to add a different texture to your look.
Add a felt floral lapel pin and a cotton pocket square for something other than silk.
Looking Down: Shoes & Socks
Sick of the same old brown and black shoes? Why not inject a coloured leather shoe into your winter wardrobe.
Navy leather has made a huge impact in the fashion world, with designers around the globe adopting a style or two in their look books.
Another great option is Oxblood, worn best with greys, charcoals & denim.
