Make Style A Breeze In The New Year

With January fast approaching, you’d better make sure your wardrobe’s well-equipped to handle the cold weather – and preferably in style. Let’s take a look at what’s in this winter:

 Grey on grey

According to GQ, going grey from top to toe is one of this season’s biggest trends, thanks to designers like Neil Barrett and Viktor & Rolf. You don’t need 50 shades of grey to pull it off, either – a dark charcoal suit with matching tie, coupled with a lighter smoke-grey shirt, is all you need to look the business.


A velvet blazer helps ramp up the style and sophistication of any outfit, as Ron Burgundy knows all too well. Seriously, though, this is a great embellishment for those who want to make a bigger impact – and if you don’t want to go all the way with it, a velvet tie or bow tie gives you a pop of the trend without going overboard.

 Military coats

Military-style coats are as popular as they’ve ever been – from parkas to trench and duffel coats, they look fantastic and do a good job of keeping you toasty, too. Take a look at Jacamo’s winter range this year to get some inspiration. You can wear a puffer gilet underneath to keep you warm when winter really starts to bite.

The explorer

Another strong trend this year is wrapping up like you’re off to Antarctica for a few months, rather than nipping to the corner shop for a packet of crisps. As Fashionbeans notes, this look comprises lug-sole boots, fur-lined hooded overcoats and accessories like beanies and thick socks. Choose primary colours as much as possible (they make you easier to see in the snow).

Stripey knitwear

Christmas jumpers are all well and good, but if you really want to hop on board the knitwear train, make it stripey. Pair a striped jumper with ripped jeans and a leather jacket for a grungey outfit that’s as warm as it is trendy, or go with some cosy corduroy trousers for a cuddlier look.
