Elevate your everyday wear with winter coats that are equal parts warm and stylish. Whether it’s an old-fashioned double-breasted coat or a wrap-around belted piece, explore recent street style looks that are scoring high on our sartorial meter.
Longer lengths and bulkier coats are unanimously in favour. Pick from different fabrics like tweed, lamb’s wool, or cashmere, and an array of patterns like chevron, herringbone, or checkered to add variety to your street style.
Ahead, scroll through trendy street style looks that collectively pay homage to the reliable protector against harsh winters.
Street style: Wool felt coats
Felted wool fabric serves multiple purposes—it’s non-fraying, colourfast, weather-resistant, moisture-wicking, fire-retardant, long-lasting, and resistant to mildew. A wool-felt coat will be heavy-weight and bulky, which is why it’s perfect as winter coats for men. Invest in a longline coat made of pure lamb’s wool, angora, or cashmere to keep yourself warm and dry during the winter. Layer it over formal wear like this man to nail your street style look.
Wrap-around belted coats
Cinch your waist with a wrap-around belted coat or leave it open as a sophisticated layer to level up your everyday wear. When it comes to length, opt for longer hemlines for added warmth. A longer length left unbelted also makes for a stylish look as it sashays around your ankles.
Take notes from the sharp dressers featured here, both of whom wear their black single-breasted unbelted coats with all-black ensembles: the first a knee-length turtleneck worn with baggy pants, and the second a crew neck sweater teamed with cigarette pants.
Street style: Chevron knit coats
Add playful patterns like chevron knits (or knitted arrows) to your winter street wear to break the monotony of blacks and blues. Choose from subtle patterns (as seen here in this fashion-forward outfit) and bold designs for this classic knit to effortlessly refine your street wear look. Borrow sartorial inspiration from this man featured here who teams an off-white ribbed turtleneck with black tailored trousers layered with a grey mélange chevron knit double-breasted coat.
Fashion trends are cyclical, and the double-breasted coat is living proof of that. The look has gone out of style and made great comebacks throughout the last century. Today, it’s a timeless pick for men of all ages. Explore fabrics like tweed, herringbone, and twill to add variety to your street wear looks.
There’s a certain comfort that a solid-hued coat gives off, best described in its versatility that allows it to be teamed with formal, semi-formal, athleisure, as well as street wear outfits. It’s that layer you’ll always reach for when in doubt. Whether it’s in a universal black colour or a rich brown shade, a solid longline coat is a must-have piece in every man’s winter wardrobe.
