“The weather outside is frightful…”

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

It’s not just a holiday song but truly how it feels outside. I was watching The Weather Channel and it seems that this will be one of the coldest winter’s on record, (So what happened to Global Warming?) but that doesn’t mean that you can’t be stylish and fierce even while trying to stay warm.

The trick is layering; first because it look much better than wearing a big bubble coat and second because it is the preferred method for staying warm during cold weather. The first thing that we think about during cold weather is the coat; this one essential item will be with you throughout the entire winter. I subscribe to the idea that a man really only NEEDS one great coat. Please make note that I said needs, personally I have three winter coats.

If you are only able to afford one coat, I would suggest either a Classic Trench Coat or a Navy Pea Coat. These two options allow for a versatile option for use. A trench is always going to look great and you can wear it every since day of the week. The Navy Pea Coat actually can be worn with casual, professional or formal clothing.

You can choose from three different lengths when purchasing winter coats: waist, mid and full lengths. The longer the coat the more formal it is. If you are choosing to purchase only one coat, then I would suggest a mid length because you will get the most wear out of it. It should go without saying but the basic black is always in style and complements pretty much everything.

Yes, the coat is the most important item, but there are three winter accessories items that should incorporated into every well-dressed man’s wardrobe: hat, scarf and gloves. Because of the use and wear that you will get out of these items during the winter season, it is important to big high quality items.

Price is always a concern, especially with the way the economy going right now. Many may not feel it necessary to spend a lot of money on these items, but instead chose to buy them from Wal-Mart. What you don’t understand is that, you will have to replace a cheap glove quite often, whereas a quality glove will last multiple seasons. At the end of the day, you are saving yourself money when buying higher quality items.
