The Edit: Brave the cold in military fashion

Don’t let the cold beat your outfit! Here are some of our style picks that’ll keep you warm and stylish through the cold season.

Category Is: Military Man!

The beginning of the year is never kind to us! Not only are we reeling from New Year’s celebrations but we are dealing with icy weather and returning to work. Trying to look good (and seem human) in the cold can be such a task and layering often sees us sweltering indoors yet not sufficiently warm when outside. We took some inspiration from men in uniform to help keep you looking good and feeling fine during the cold season.

Make sure your materials are windproof and if you can, water resistant too. Nobis make some beautiful pieces that are designed to keep you warm and toasty even if you’re just in a t-shirt underneath. If you’re not one for a hooded coats, Gloverall’s Donkey Jacket for men is a great alternative!

Clockwise from left to right: duck down coat with coyote fur hood by Nobis, £745; beige multicolour scarf by Scotch & Soda, £54.95 , green scarf by Penrose London, £145; coat by Gloverall, £275; both bags by Thorndale, rucksack, £530, holdall £575

Pulling out your phone to check the time is in no way fun when you’ve got arctic winds coming at you – not to mention it’s so 2017! Why not save yourself the hassle of dropping your phone because your gloves have no grip and get a watch that looks great and makes time-checking as easy as a flick of the wrist?

Sunglasses, you say? In winter, you say? Yes, we say – and here’s why. Regardless of how hot it may or may not be, the sun is still there. We need not go into any further detail. Here are some sunnies we feel are perfect for protecting your eyes from the light and wind. Oh, and some lovely bracelets from Tateossian!

Clockwise from left to right: Porsche Design 911 sunglasses, £375.50; black bracelet by Tateossian, £165; red braided leather bracelet by Tateossian, £250; Police sunglasses, £144

 

We’re sure you hate cold feet as much as we do so picking shoes that offer insulation and support is a great way to avoid this. Diadora, Palladium and Sperry all handle these issues in one fell swoop whilst keeping style and affordability at the fore. We thought we’d slip in a few extra bags too – just so you had enough to choose from. (You’re welcome)

Clockwise from left to right: sneakers by Diadora, £144; backpack by Thorndale, £440; boots by Palladium, £110; fannypack by Eastpak, £55; Cold Bay rain boots by Sperry, £149.95
