As the clocks have gone back and the days are getting shorter, it means it’s only going to get colder from here on. It’s time to brace yourself for winter’s typical and sometimes brutal temperatures. Fill your wardrobe with jackets, weather-resistant boots, and a couple of essential accessories from JCPenney. Here, you can find some new winter wear to supplement your existing threads or replace your last year’s favorite pieces!
We have gathered essential men’s layers to complete your seasonal wardrobe this year. Winter is upon us, so scoop them up quickly.
Start with a Great Base Layer
Start with a thermal base layer, so you are prepared to combat freezing temperatures and achieve high-intensity active winter pursuits with great ease. Based on the color and print, thermals can be worn either hidden or exposed. Trust us; you’ll be much warmer and more comfortable than without one of these.
Our tip: Add your look for the day over the thin layer. For tops, it could be a sweater, and for bottoms, a pair of joggers.
Classics You Can’t Live Without
Nothing can replace classic, cable-knit sweaters and hooded military jackets when it comes to keeping yourself warm. Though there are tons of styles and materials to choose from, a shawl-collar sweater is one of the most popular picks right now. Hoodies, on the other hand, have come way away since their sporting roots, and it can now sit comfortably in a mix of casual, menswear outfits. It works wonders with nothing more than a basic tee.
Our tip: You can’t go wrong with a deep-colored sweater or simple, loopback cotton hoodie. So, club any of these with a rugged pair of denim and weather-resistant boots, and you’re good to go.
Bundle Up in Style
Puffer jackets are great layering pieces that are having a comeback. Thanks to their fitted cut, puffer jackets serve as an excellent barrier against the cold under your parka on incredibly frigid days. You can even wear them beneath a suit jacket for frosty morning outings. Vests are other means to look sharp on a casual outing. Layer them over a sweater or a flannel button-down shirt or under a heavier coat when it’s blizzarding outside.
Our tip: Leave your jacket open at the top to show off the high-neck tee inside while still achieving maximum warmth.
An Outerwear Choice of Traditionalists and Hypebeasts Alike
If classic tailoring and fabrics like tweed, flannel, and wool are your things, then your closet should transition for the season. Think walking coats with scarves, topcoats, and for those casual days, hybrid coats. They are easy (and relatively affordable) recommendations for fall and winter.
Our tip: Go for a classic wool overcoat with long lines, minimal detailing, and a rakish silhouette.
Accessories with These Outfits
Invest in soft cashmere gloves, beanies, hats, scarves to ensure you have impeccably covered yourself. At JCPenney, you can find endless options, from fabrics to textures to price points.
Our tip: Go bold with a scarf or beanie in a loud shade and keep the rest of your pieces neutral.
