Of Jackets and Cardigans: 3 Essential Layering Items for Men

a family during the winterStaying warm and looking cool for the autumn and winter seasons may seem like an impossible task. For men who just put on whatever they find, it can be challenging. But this should change now.

Looking good this season should not be difficult — especially if you have the three outerwear essentials in rotation. If you are looking for some ways how to wear them, this article has it. The season should also give you an excuse to create a great style impression.

Without further ado, here are some of the outerwear items that you can have in your wardrobe—some of which can even be used whenever it is cold regardless of the season.

1. A Sporty Jacket

Sometimes, dressing down should not be too relaxed; you should put in some effort to look good. If you want to look casually good with your futuristic sneaks (Yeezy’s, anyone?) and your pullovers, you could top your ensemble with an oversize sporty jacket — you could even repurpose your Descente challenger jacket into a styling item.

2. A Cardigan

Not exactly considered outerwear, you can tweak its purpose and use it the way you like it during days when the cold is not biting. You can go for thin options, which are usually made of merino wool.

But if you want to create a cozy look, you can go for shawl cardigans or those with lapels. These items are perfect for looking dressy.

3. A Trench Coat

If you want to up your dressy credo, you should consider getting a trench coat. What’s good about trench coats is that you can dress them up or down.

Dress down with a white tee, denim, white sneakers, and top everything off with it. Dress up with a button-down, chinos, and brogues, with the coat to finish your look.

These are just some of the things to keep in mind if you want to look good this season with layering items.
