We all love the winter season, don’t we?
The whole season is so magical especially for someone who loves fashion. The choices we get during winter season when it comes to clothes and accessories is a whole lot more than what we get during any other season of the year.
Winter is especially great for us; accessory lovers, as we men don’t have a lot of options when it comes to accessories compared to women. The choices that we get right from hats to woolen socks during this time of the year gets me excited even to write about it.
So without any further delay, let’s discuss about the 5 must have winter accessories which every man must have in their wardrobe.
Beanies are probably one of the most stylish accessories that every man must have in their wardrobe. Apart from being stylish, beanies are also great for protecting your ears from the chilly winter winds.
Moreover, Beanies have the ultimate superpower to transform your looks from an average Joe to an ultra stylish hunk. Though, beanie is a great winter accessory to have in your wardrobe, it is also important to choose the right beanie which would suit you.
Let’s discuss about the different types of beanies and which type would be perfect for you.
The Classic Cuffed Beanie
This is probably the most basic, versatile and popular beanie which have been around for a long time. Whenever someone says ‘woolen hat’; the first image which immediately pops into your mind is probably the classic cuffed beanie. Not only do they look great, they also keep your head nice and warm during those chilly winter days. If you have a long face, the classic cuffed beanie would be perfect for you.
The Bobble Hat
You might think that a hat with a pom-pom is hideous and why am I even discussing it in the first place. And before you come to a conclusion, let me steer clear that I am also not a big fan of it. But, the bobble hat can be great for some men, especially if you have to have a square face.
The Fisherman Beanie
The fisherman beanie is great for someone who likes to stand out from the crowd. This woolen hat ends just above the ears making it perfect for any guy with an oval or heart shaped face.
Scarfs are probably my favorite clothing accessory when it comes to winter accessories. I just adore the look and feel of a scarf. Not only does it look extremely elegant on a man, it is extremely manly as well and those who think it is not for them; let me tell you my friend; the moment you find the right scarf which suits you; you will immediately fall in love with these timeless beauties.
Though, scarfs are definitely a must have essentials when it comes to winter accessories, there are a few points which you should keep in mind when choosing a scarf.
Wool such as cashmere wool and angora wool should be your preferred fabrics when choosing the right scarf during winter. Not only do they look great; they will also help you to stay warm and comfortable.
Don’t tie your scarf too tightly. Loosely wrap it around your neck and tie knots according to your preference.
Men Do Not wear scarf pins. So, avoid scarfs with scarf pins. Simple is always better when it comes to scarfs.
Socks are such an underrated piece of accessory. Not only are socks extremely functional; but they look very stylish and elegant as well.
Socks are even more handy during the winter season. I, personally, never go out of my house without a good pair of woolen socks during the winter season.
“I regard a man very highly if he owns a good collection of socks.”
Even though socks are a must have accessory during the winter season, there are a few points which you should keep in mind.
NEVER wear cotton socks during the winter season.
Avoid ankle length socks. Always go for long pair of socks during the winter season
Alpaca wool and Cashmere wool are the two fabrics which I highly recommend when it comes to winter woolen socks.
Gloves are a definite must have accessory during the winter season. They are highly functional as our hands tend to get cold very easily making it very hard for us to do even regular day to day work.
A pair of leather gloves worn with a trench coat and leather boots is an all time classic look which most men loves to flaunt.
During the winter season, I would highly recommend you to have at least two pairs of gloves viz. A pair of deerskin leather gloves and a pair of knitted woolen gloves.
Now, let’s dive into some of the points you should consider while wearing gloves.
Do not wear finger less gloves during the winter season. I do not like them at all and I insist you to avoid it during the winter season unless you are a motorcyclist.
Make sure to clean your gloves regularly as gloves tend to get stinky overtime especially the leather ones.
This is probably something which I can’t stay without during the winters. Not only does it keep me warm and comfortable, it also doesn’t affect my flexibility which is a great boon as winter garments tend to be quite heavy.
Since thermals can be worn in layers, they are your perfect partner during winters as air is trapped using several thin layers.
Now, let’s dive into some of the points which you need to consider when choosing the perfect thermal for you.
Make sure to go for snug fit thermals. Since, they will be closer to your body, the wind will be trapped more efficiently and will help distribute warmth throughout the body in an even and more efficient manner.
Wool thermal underwear fabric is probably the best option when choosing thermals as I feel they provide the optimal comfort no matter how much the temperature fluctuates in your region. Silk thermal underwear fabric and synthetic thermal underwear fabric are also good choices.
Avoid cotton thermal underwear fabric as cotton retains perspiration which could make you feel cold.
To conclude, I strongly feel these 5 winter accessories are a must have which are extremely essential for every man as they provide both function as well as style.
