6 Winter Style Tips


Dressing appropriately isn’t just about finding the right tie pin or how you fold your pocket square – it’s also about finding the right outfit to match the season. Here are six tips to make sure you survive the cooler months in style.

Fabric. When the temperature drops, the fabric you’re wearing can make all the difference between fending off the cold and shivering your way through the day. While cotton and even linen blends are fine to see you through spring and summer – especially in the Australian climate – in winter, wool is your safest bet. Since it’s a natural fabric, it’s plenty warm enough for winter, but it won’t overheat if the mercury happens to pick up. Or if you require something more casual, a mid grey wool blend sportscoat with a tan chino always looks and feels great in Winter.

Colour. In the past, things were a little more, er, black and white: lighter colours in spring and summer; darker shades in autumn and winter. But while you might look a little out of place if you’re decked out in full Gatsby seersucker during winter, these days when it comes to colour, things aren’t quite so strict when it comes to seasonal colours. All tones of Blue are strong this Season with the brighter Blues being the pick of the bunch. Finish off the Blue Suit with a tan or teak leather shoe.

Patterns. Ok, so black, navy or grey might not sound like the most exciting colour combination on the planet, but patterns, checks and subtle stripes are a handy way to push the boat out a little more with your winter wardrobe, and show some personality.

Style. A tailored fit 2 Button single breast suit is a must or if you prefer slim fit suits with a tapered leg  looks great. 3 Peice suits are very strong this season in Charcoal and Blue.

Tie. Although slim ties have been popular in the past, a wider 2.5″ – 3″ tie have made a come back as Suit lapels are getting wider.

There’s only so much a suit can do, and staying warm in winter is mostly down to accessories – Coats, socks, scarves, and shoes. If the temperature falls, a nice cardigan or V-neck jumper won’t go amiss under your jacket.
