Nights out in January are tricky; you want to look good but you also want to keep yourself warm because there’s nothing worse than being cold when you’re trying to party the night away, so we’re going to be providing you with some top tips for dressing well but keeping warm on your frosty nights out!
Tip 1: The Overcoat
Our first tip for keeping warm whilst looking seriously on trend has to be the hero of the menswear world at the moment – the overcoat!
Men are just loving overcoats at the moment and we totally understand why! Whether you opt for a tweed overcoat to incorporate some texture to your look or go for the classic camel coat for an effortlessly dapper look, we’ve got all the men’s overcoats you could possibly want or need here at Slater Menswear and think they’re the perfect finishing touch to any going out outfit!
Tip 2: Brogue Boots
As much as we love a loafer for a night out, when it’s chucking it down with rain and you’re stood in the cue outside the club, loafers aren’t such a good idea anymore which is why for winter nights out, we’re all about a brogue boot!
Super smart to ensure you have no trouble getting into the bars and clubs, brogue boots are also super practical when the weather is wet and windy as your feel will stay dry and warm all night long, so you can dance away without a problem!
Tip 3: Roll Neck Jumpers
Shirts are always a first choice for a night out but let’s be honest, they’re not the warmest, especially if you end up stuck in the rain, so we think a roll neck jumper is a perfect alternative to keep you looking smart but super warm.
They’re understated and sophisticated and look seriously cool layered with an overcoat, so if you fancy mixing up your style and ditching the shirt during the winter months, a roll neck jumper is the way forward.
Tip 4: Check Shirt & T-Shirt
Layering is always the key to looking cool but feeling cosy, so if you want a casual yet suave look for a night out, pairing a t-shirt with an open check shirt is the ultimate combination!
You can go as simple or as bold as you like with the look depending on the colours and items you choose to put together but however you choose to sport this ensembles, this look will always be effortlessly on trend!
For extra warmth, layer a denim, leather or Harrington style jacket on top for a modern and laid back look!
Tip 5: Opt for Fabrics Like Tweed and Velvet
Fabrics such as tweed and velvet are known for being thicker and therefore warmer materials, so choosing a tweed or velvet blazer over something thinner like cotton or linen will keep you warm without having to carry a coat round!
Blazers are a classic choice for men on nights out so by simply changing the fabric of your jacket, you can keep yourself far warmer whilst walking between bars!
With the help of these top 5 tips, you needn’t every say no to a night out again just because the weather is a looking a bit chilly!
