Cold weather can be tricky when it comes to what to wear. You want to look good but also stay warm. There has to be a way to have both, right? The good news is that with these winter style looks for cold weather in NJ, you can stay fashionable and cozy.

Turn Heads in a Show-stopping Parka

One of the best looks to wear this winter is one that features a show-stopping parka from a premium brand like Canali. This parka is perfect for cold weather because its purposely made to combat cold rain, sleet and snow. With its cashmere material and hood feature, bad weather is no match for a Canali Bordeaux parka. Protect your wool jacket from winter flurries by pulling a parka over your suit. Parkas are totally on trend for winter 2018, so it’s a great way to update your winter style for this winter season in NJ.

To wear your parka like a pro, take a note from Canali and match a cranberry-colored parka with a navy blue turtleneck, plaid blazer and dark wine pants, similar to how style influencer Marcel Floruss did. Finish off the look with a pair of dark brown derby shoes made of supple leather and you’re ready to brave the elements in style.

Don the Wool Dinner Suit

The cold weather in NJ calls for evening ensembles that keep you warm and keep with the current trends. There’s nothing that does that better than a Wool Dinner Suit from Ted Baker.

It comes in the seasonal color of navy blue and features traditional tuxedo-striped fabric details in a shiny yet subtle satin finish. A bow tie is a must to add the perfect finishing touch to your look. The Ted Baker paisley bow tie adds that extra little something and works perfectly for an evening out or a nice dinner.

After you buy your wool suit for the winter, get in touch with your tailor to have him help you achieve the right fit. A tailor can help you create a custom look for your suit so that it fits as if it was made just for you.

Pull Off the Layered Look

Layers are essential for any cold weather climate and New Jersey is no exception. That’s why it’s crucial to layer your look with key pieces, such as a classic wool sweater and polo top like the ones featured by premium brand Psycho Bunny. This Psycho Bunny wool sweater is made to last, so you can have it for all the winter seasons to come. You can add a pop of color by wearing a tomato-red polo top and inverting the collar to create a laid-back look. When you layer it with a racer-striped raglan sweater made of merino wool, you’ll be able to stay warm when the weather is cold outside. You can also go with a camel colored trench and a newsboy cap for an added layer of warmth and style. This look is not only versatile, practical and, of course, stylish.

Pair it with wool slacks and monk strap boots when you’re headed to the office for a morning meeting or go more casual with corduroy pants and Chelsea boots for afternoon lunches with colleagues and clients.

Keep it Casual With an Off-Duty Winter Vest

When work is over and the weekend is on its way, it’s key to have a cold weather ensemble that works well for outdoor adventures and casual campfire nights. Opting for off-duty looks from premium denim brands, such as 34 Heritage, is the way to go. Try layering a winter vest over a long-sleeve checkered shirt with denim pants, such as the Charisma Rome Ink denim pant from 34 Heritage. Plaids, puffer vests and checks have been a constant feature on the men’s winter 2018 runway shows and for good reason; they’ll keep you warm and looking good in. To complete your outfit, go with a pair of lace-up winter boots in this season’s on-trend hue of camel.
