Winter Accessories For Tweed Jacket
- Scarves – While you may not necessarily need scarves, these items can look awesome next to your tweed jacket. Pick a soft fabric, like lambswool. This will soften the look of the tweed. Also, just because it is a scarf, doesn’t mean it can’t be manly. Pick from masculine colours like dark greens, blues, browns, and charcoals. Make sure the scarf does not overpower the rest of your outfit though. It should compliment it and highlight certain aspects of the ensemble. There are a couple of different types of scarves you can choose from, depending on how casual or dressed up you want to appear. Pick a long chunky scarf for those casual nights out on the town. Choose a thin, short scarf if you are heading to a nice restaurant or club.
- Gloves – When it comes to winter accessories, many men seem to forget about wearing gloves. But really, there’s not point in letting your finger freeze when you could be making a bold fashion statement. When wearing tweed, choose rugged, yet modern looking gloves, like those made from lambskin. These not only will match the outdoorsy attitude of your jacket, but will look fabulous and keep your fingers warm.
- Hats – Hats are an important part of any wardrobe, especially in winter. You’ve heard the old saying “you lose heat through your head” right? While this statement may not be entirely true, it does give you something to think about. Hats are more than just a way to show off your style. They are functional. Even if they don’t exactly look like they could be on the runway next spring, if they keep your ears safe from frostbite this winter, you shouldn’t care too much. However, if you just happen to find a trendy hat, yet functional hat to go with your tweed jacket, you get the best of both worlds. Try styles like the diplomatic fur hat, the knit cap, and the aviator hat. These hats look great with almost any ensemble, but will definitely work well for tweed.
- Sunglasses – The glare of the sun off the ice and snow this winter may call for a new pair of sunglasses. Choose ones that are lightweight, have a simple design, and are dressy. Modern sunglasses, with sleek frames and contemporary lines, are a great choice if you will be hitting the slopes or simply walking to the coffee shop during your lunch break. Choose bold masculine colours like silver, black, or brown.
