It is officially the time of the year for heavy clothing to define the walkways and streets. As the Autumn transitions to the winter season, which styles should you be keeping your eyes on? Quite a number. 2018 has been a rather definitive year in the world of fashion. We have already seen some throwback styles and new styles defining the year. The trends during the cold season have already started popping up, and there are some things you need to know about this season. Here is what you should know to stay stylish during this season.

1. The Layering Trend

Layers and layering up have defined much of the year. Over the winter, you should explore the layer-up world without any fear. There is no better way to do this with just the right material – leather. Leather is a pretty bold material that only a few men manage to pull off exceptionally. As for the inspirations for the look, do not shy away from borrowing from yesteryears. Go for the ultra-long coats from the popular brands for a refined and common look. For a distinctive look, try an all-leather outfit from head to toe. You can find some great hats, shoes, and trousers to achieve a head-turning look.

2. The Hiker Look

The winter season is all about bringing out the daring mood. There is no better way to stay protected and stylish in the cold than with some good old hiking outfits. Men hiking shoes were particularly a trend at the start of the year, and they might be the style to look out for as the year closes. As reported by his.boutique, you can choose to be a style purist or a minimalist. Whatever you decide, a pair of Merrell shoes will be great with any heavy outfit this season. The various hiker jackets and hats will also do you a good turn in the cold and unforgiving weather.

3. Brown Outfits

Regarding color, there is no better shade for winter than brown. The color is fantastic in a season that is characterized by a calm mood. Whether you are a Louis Vuitton or Fendi die-hard, you will not lack the right jackets, coats, or blazers in this color. The great thing about brown is that it is a neutral color that blends well with bright and dark colors. You should thus feel confident combining your white or black outfits with a brown jacket or shoes. There are also many shades of brown to choose from, and you will not be limited.

4. Checks

Checks are back in season again. This year has been great for people who love checks because they have defined a big part of the trends. The checks are the kind of clothes for the uneventful winter season. You should not be afraid to wear the bright and clashing checks to bring out the excitement in the otherwise calm season. The great thing about checks is that you can find all kinds of sizes to experiment with. You can find oversized, small patterns, dark, bright, and many other options. Checks are also a timeless men’s style that has good representatives in the classic and contemporary shop. Whether it’s Burberry checked loafer shoes or blazers by ZARA, be sure to incorporate the checks in your style this season.

5. Bold Knits

Knits are heavily represented in the market. Gucci, ZARA, Fendi, and many other brands have a great collection of knits you can choose from this winter. The brightly colored knits are the specific option that you should be looking for this year. These knits are not only bold and sexy, but they are also great for making a statement. The winter is all about hitting the extremes and bringing out the baffling styles as the year closes. It is the end of the year, and it is just the right time to wear the clothes that you have not tried for the bigger part of the year.

It would help if you also watched out for the pinstripes, Western trends, and all-black fashion. All these styles are expected during this season, and trying them will make you stand out amongst the crowd.
