Jan 2, 2016: Winter is the best time to accessorise yourself as we all know Summer is all about the sun and heat so winter is the best time to break out the pricey accessories. Sure, you may not absolutely need the following products, but they’ll go a long way in making you look cool while you stay warm. So, here ten winter clothing accessories for Men.
A scarf literally and figuratively adds another layer to your winter ensemble. Contrast one of the following scarves to your winter coat and you’ll be looking the part of a true fashion-forward man.1- Chunky cable scarf. This 66-inch long, lambswool and cashmere scarf comes in six dark, masculine colors, including petrol, charcoal, burgundy, and black. The chunkier the scarf, the more casual it is. Wear this particular one by Kenneth Cole with ski jackets or other heavy winter coats. Whatever your ultimate choice, you should use a scarf to highlight your existing outfits, rather than dominate them.
2) Black Vintage Striped Cashmere Scarf:
Among classically-minded clotheshorses, a 100% cashmere scarf is the mark of a gentleman. This Kashmere brand cashmere scarf features black, plum and charcoal stripes, to give you many color combinations.
Gloves are an essential winter accessory, but many men overlook the importance of matching them to their winter wardrobe.
4) Tan Leather Gloves:
Driving gloves are classics that demand respect. These particular Gucci gloves boast a silk-lined interior and a leather exterior. The gloves’ tan color makes them more “day” than “night,” but it does allow for more matching opportunities when it comes to casual clothes. When confused, remember: The color of your dressy gloves should match your overcoat or shoes. And gloves with any sort of leather exterior are among the dressiest you can find.
5) Brown Lamb Shearling Gloves:
These lambskin gloves by All Gloves are dark brown, and are a touch more rugged and outdoorsy than their Gucci counterparts. The same matching rules outlined above still apply in this case, but they’re generally more lax, as you can wear these gloves with denim. Hats can bring dignity to a man or make him look childish. But, more so than any other winter accessory, the hat should be about function over form.
6) Knit Cap:
This is a classic black, newsboy-style wool cap by G.S. Bailey. Match it with your overcoat, which looks especially great if it’s charcoal gray or dark brown.
7) Sheepskin Aviator Hat:
The aviator hat is great for all guys, from the rugged outdoorsman to the man simply trying to keep his ears frostbite-free. The dense wool/fur lining and the long earflaps don’t make the aviator hat a fashion home run, but nothing beats it for functionality. These hats come in many shades of gray, black and brown, but the classic is dark brown or tan. This one, which can be found at Celtic-Sheepskin.co.uk, goes nicely with virtually any type of winter coat — from leather overcoats to ski parkas.
8) “Diplomat” Fur Hat:
This is a traditional leather and fur hat for winter travelers, businessmen or, well, diplomats. It usually features a sheepskin shearling base that’s lined with rabbit fur. It’s smaller than other Russian fur cap styles — which happen to currently be trendy — and generally less garish. Often found in black or gray, the “Diplomat” works well when matched with a sweater or jacket/coat.
9) Winter Sunglasses:
Shading your eyes from the winter light is a slightly different ballgame than in the summer. You need glasses that protect against snow blindness and the reflection of all types of ultraviolet rays.
10) Photochromic Sunglasses:
These award-winning mountain climbing sunglasses by Julbo are great when it comes to preventing sun damage during long days on the slopes. Their modernist look makes them more appropriate for younger guys, and they match better with casual and winter sports wear rather than, say, suits. Colors include silver, brown and black.
