Let's Hear it for the Boys

A style that is both functional and fashionable is often appreciated by men of any age. Layering pieces this winter is just that: a simple, warm and stylish way to stay on-trend throughout the season. When dealing with unpredictable weather, extra layers are the key to a stylish look with adjustable warmth. Overlap a few of your favorite garments for those frigid mornings, and you’re able to easily take off these layers when you arrive at school or as the weather changes throughout the day.

This Fashionisto models the layered look and keeps it stylish from head to toe. His slate blue wool-blend coat is a perfect example of tailored outerwear that should be a major staple in any man’s winter wardrobe. When layering clothing, it is important to wear thin garments, like this gray T-shirt, with a thick outer layer, to avoid the bulky look. Don’t be afraid to dress in dark colors, but skip the dull, all-black look this season. Instead, incorporate dark browns, olive greens, deep reds and navy blues into your wardrobe for added dimension, as we see pictured.

Atop the T-shirt this Fashionisto sports a denim jacket – my fave! This piece is so versatile. It can be dressed up or dressed down, worn in the summer or layered in the winter. GQ tells us it’s a fashion staple that’s not going anywhere, so I suggest you jump on the bandwagon!

Layered between his wool-blend coat and denim jacket, this Fashionisto adds another coat by Zara for Men for extra warmth during these sub-zero Ohio temps. Mixing and matching fabrics like wool, denim and cotton help to create an interesting contrast in your look.

Balance your above-the-waist layered look with a slim-fit dark jean, creating a well-dressed, eye-catching overall appearance. Finish your polished and put-together ensemble with a pair of Clarks, an always-stylish option for denim, khakis or corduroys that add a final masculine touch to any outfit.

Hint: This Fashionisto dresses his outfit down with a Cleveland Indians baseball hat, a simple accessory that keeps the look casual and adds a pop of personality. Heading out for date night? Simply remove the hat and you’re sure to impress.
