When you were younger, there was no better feeling than getting the call that school was canceled because of a snow day. As you get older, that snowy day excitement doesn’t have to go away. With these five snowy day essentials, you can be just excited about men’s winter style as you were about getting that snow day phone call.
1. A Classic Car Coat
Nothing says comfort and class like a car coat. Car coats can easily be layered over your favorite winter sweater or a fancy wool suit. When it comes to purchasing a car coat, high-quality fabrics, such as cashmere, wool and water-resistant technology, are your best bet. Of course, high-end brands, like Canali, offer car coats with a quality that is unmatched. The Canali blue car coat will keep you snug on any snowy day, thanks to its pure wool lining and inner detachable Shearling collar. With its quilted stitching and washed leather details, you’ll never want to wear another coat during the cold NJ winters again.
2. The Sleek Sweater
What’s better for a snowy day than a sleek sweater? Maybe sipping some hot chocolate in front of a fireplace, but that’s about it. If you want a sweater to keep you warm while the winter weather gets cold, the Pete Millar Artisan Crafter cashmere quarter-zip will do the trick. The cashmere fabric and mock collar are perfect for looking cool but staying warm. It’s comfort and men’s winter style guaranteed. And the best part? This sweater from Peter Millar comes in a variety of colors that can be paired with existing pieces in your wardrobe, like a crewneck shirt in a bold color or pattern. Our piece of advice? Go for the camel-colored or winter-white option to stay on-trend with this season’s hottest colors.
3. The Winter-Ready Wool Pant
Wool really is the answer to all of your men’s winter style needs. On snowy days, when skinny jeans just won’t do, you can count on the layering power of a wool pant. Not only are wool pants warm, but they’re also extremely versatile. From a lunch meeting with a client to a night out with friends, you can layer your wool pants with underpants for extra warmth wherever the winter takes you. If you’re still on the hunt for an outfit to ring in the new year, look no further than a pair of Ted Baker DDARTRO checked boucle wool suit trousers. You can also personalize the look by having your tailor adjust your wool pants for a custom fit
