For big and tall men, styling for the winter might actually be easier than trying to style in the summer. That’s because winter weather calls for layering up your suit game, which means you’re actively trying to feel your best while looking your best.
With that in mind, you may be in the mode of trying out some new looks in 2019. Here are a few handy tips to help you along the way.
Formal work attire usually calls for a suit most months. In the winter, this is especially true. When creating your suit outfit in colder weather, suit jackets in dark colors like black, grey or navy work best because they match with most of the layers you’ll be wearing.
Dark suit jackets go best with a white shirt underneath, but the jackets over both are up to you and what you feel the best in. Wool jackets and coats are always a good bet because they’ll keep you warm on the way into your office. For maximum comfort, try a single-breasted wool and cashmere blend coat from Daniel Hechter Paris. Whichever coat or jacket you settle on should come in simple colors that accentuate your look, not dominate it.
Winter weather is accessories weather. Accessories might even be the wrong word for the scarves, hats, belts, and gloves you’ll need to style your suits this winter. These items should be a staple of your outfits, ensuring you keep warm and comfortable while looking stylish.
It’s also a good year to ditch the bulky leather gloves or thin, fraying wool gloves you’ve used for years and opt for something more in-between. A pair of breathable, water-resistant texting gloves packs the durability of many winters into a sleek, modern design that will kick your suit style up another notch.
Finally, you can’t go wrong with a toque in the winter. Toques are as practical as ever, and wearing one with the right shade of grey and a minimal ribbing can really tie your entire outfit together.
