It’s nearly the season to break out the winter coats; as the temperature begins to drop and we say goodbye to the long summer we had this year. While many of you will be sad to see the warm sunshine go, others will be ready to embrace the cold season and all the styles it brings with it. After all, winter fashion is a whole new ball game. From men’s coats to knitwear, winter brings on a whole new style.
Outerwear is one of the most important aspects of winter dressing, so when it comes to AW18, here are some of the best men’s coat styles for this year.
A classic style, parka jackets are one of the warmest options when it comes to the winter season. Ideal for ensuring you are both snug and stylish, men’s parka jackets are often equipped with a hood, warm lining and features like ribbed cuffs and faux fur trims.
Parka jackets are a great style for all wintry conditions, especially wind and snow. Its origin was with the Caribou Inuit people, before it began to gain prominence in the western world in the 1950s.
It’s now a popular choice for protecting you from the elements, lasting you into the spring and summer if needs be.
Puffa jackets have an instantly recognisable style, with their quilted exterior making them perfect for winter. Easy to wear, they can be thrown over a casual or smart outfit. Puffa jackets become a statement when worn in a bold colour like bright blue or orange, or created with a camo print or something similar.
Men’s puffa jackets are the perfect answer to winter outerwear, often designed with a high neck for protection from the cold, as well as ample insulation and a snug fit. Parkas have been seen across the catwalks from some of the biggest menswear designers, making them one of the most popular styles for this season.
Following the trend of technical outerwear, windcheater jackets are perfect for unpredictable weather. They are lightweight and have a timeless style that is both retro and modern. Windcheater jackets generally come in darker colours, so look for styles that have block colours for a smart look.
Windcheater jackets for men are a transitional style that can be worn through the winter and into the spring for another layer. Often waterproof, they make for a perfect jacket for all weathers.
For times when a smarter attire is required, a wool coat is the go-to choice for AW18. A statement style, often created in a classic pattern such as houndstooth or check, wool coats are an essential for any man’s winter wardrobe.
Usually designed with front lapels and buttons, wool coats are a perfect evening style with a regular fit. They have an inner quilting for extra protection from the weather, making it a stylish and practical coat for social events in the cold weather.
