Thin fishtail parkas are a fantastic statement piece; styled up with bright accents, quirky accessories and a classic winter jumper bring the look together well.
Furless versions are available on the high street, black on black looks contemporary and edgy, and you can always team a bright accent garment or accessory to add some interest.
At this time of the year, funnily enough, keeping your head warm is one of your top priorities. Just because the cold winds have started to set in doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style.
It’s great when you find something that will keep you cosy, content and also make you feel confident about your style.
The beanie is essentially the dark horse of winter accessories; it’s become fashionable again in recent seasons and dates back to early days of working class service men. This must have is a cult classic and partial to hipster statements or just your easy everyday look.
Fedoras are sharp, unassuming and are a fantastic on-trend piece this season. Perfect for the modern gentleman, someone who is passionate about channelling heritage inspired tailoring or just wishing to smarten up – consider this piece for your winter essential.
