Winter is here. So is the need for warm clothes. Fashion blooms the best in winter with so much layering and texture. The scope of experimenting and the maximalist prerequisites allow even men to stand out in the domain that is mostly dominated by women. Also, in the last few years, with the arrival of K-Pop culture and gender-fluid thoughts, fashion has drastically changed for men. Therefore, mens jackets are no longer in monochrome shades and styles.
According to fashion experts, any popular style comes back in a new bottle every 20 years. Jackets for men are no exception to that. It is a dive into the past with the binoculars of fashion. Here is everything you need to know about the trending styles and types of men’s jackets:
With new Instagram aesthetics such as dark and white academia, looking studious has also returned in men’s fashion as if everything is a blast to the past. White, cream, and pastel wool jackets can slay the hearts of fashion lovers with a touch of black trousers, oval spectacles and a vintage watch. The texture of wool always adds to the sophistication without making it look outdated.
Many men enjoy wearing jackets and coats, even in summer but with a touch of linen. Linen keeps the body cool and makes it look chic at the same time. Linen as a cloth material is not suitable for winter. But pairing it with tropical weather or warm nights can bring out the best in a man’s fashion choices. Also, it is an out-of-the-box choice, which makes a man stand out from the rest.
Trucker jackets have been an iconic part of Western fashion standards. But with time, they have also travelled the world and gotten their take on different cultures and places. The best part about these jackets is that they are easier to combine with formal and casual looks. You can go anywhere from movie dates to coffee houses if you know how to pair the trucker correctly. Also, polka dots, stripes, and chess blocks are some new prints a man should try in new-age trucker jackets.
Denim never goes out of style. Even Harry Styles will stand by that quote because of the longevity of denim cloth. Even after a hundred washes, the denim jacket gets somehow rugged but not useless. It is one of the essential reasons denim jackets have always captured the attention of youth. Also, black, ash, grey, and cream denim are slowly returning to the men’s section. So, the blue denim jacket is no longer the flagbearer of the style.
Biker jackets, popularly known as leather jackets, are also back in town according to the occasion and look. Most men go wrong with a leather jacket if they don’t understand the place and purpose. Halloween, winter holidays, and bike rides are suitable occasions for pairing up your leather jacket with something cool. Also, try to break free from the conventional black leather and try brown, maroon, grey, teal and beige shades.
Winter is the right time to experiment with men’s fashion, especially jackets for layering. Just a quick tip for jacket lovers: Don’t go overboard with the other clothes you are wearing with your jacket. Men’s jackets take up the most visual space in a man’s body while wearing them. Therefore, a man should choose the other apparel according to the pattern and look of the jacket.
