Winter is coming … is a phrase you’ve probably heard all too often on a certain TV show this year but it serves as a timely reminder that the cold weather is indeed on its way and so too is the need to add a few essentials to that wardrobe of yours. So without further ado, here are the top three must-have items to see you through the cold stretch and to keep you looking stylish.
It’s the first thing that comes to mind when we feel the first chill of the year. Protecting your neck from the elements is a surefire way to keep those sniffles at bay and yourself fighting fit. And the scarf is a great accessory in that no matter how conservative your dress code is at the office; you have plenty of scope for flamboyance with your scarf. Let’s face it, you’ll be taking it off once you get in the door anyway. Two tone scarves with micro patterns such as diamonds or diagonal stitches are very chic but if you want to go the whole hog, then max out the credit card on a Burberry classic like this one.
At $870 it’s a bit of an investment, but it’s justifiable opulence in our eyes.
It’s usually the pinkies that are next to warn you of the cold snap looming, but those ski gloves your dear old mum bought you for Christmas just won’t do. Why invest so much time in your look only to pair your custom tailored suit with a pair of dayglow monstrosities that you can barely open a door when wearing. No, for us it’s got to be a pair of Dents. The English glove makers have been at it since 1777 so you could say they know a thing or two about keeping your mitts toasty.
This hairsheep leather pair feature touchscreen tech meaning you can still use your smartphone on the go.
And last by no means least is the all-important overcoat. Did you really think a pair of gloves and a scarf would see you through winter? Your overcoat, just like your custom made suit is a serious investment so take your time over this one. You’ll want a material that is tough and durable but that can let a bit of air in, so you don’t feel like you’re in a sauna every time you jump on a bus or the train. Ideally your friendly neighbourhood tailor can help you out here in choosing a style and fabric that suits your needs. And while we’re on the subject there’s no need to go too far to find that perfect fit because, believe it or not, we also make custom made overcoats like the fantastically stylish specimen below.
Just remember that you shouldn’t have to compromise on style to stay warm. There are plenty of options out there in the world of winter accessories that both function well and look good. And like we said, if it’s an overcoat you’re after, then we’ve got you covered.
