Winter is here and as it gets cooler with each passing day, it’s worth investing in some high-quality outerwear and what could be better than sharing a unisex winter wardrobe with your partner, friends or family?
In the past, the crisp cold weather meant you’d need to cover a great outfit with that oversize pullover, coat, jacket, and many others. However, this is not the case today as designers keep coming up with stylish outerwear that make for great outfits whether casual or dressy. Fashion is ever evolving and luckily today, you can get fashionable outerwear pieces that are great for both men and women and add to your winter outfit. Here are 5 great casual outerwear ideas for winter:
The timeless bomber jacket
The first great piece for autumn and winter is the bomber jacket. While it was previously reserved for men and was mostly available in a design similar to that of a varsity jacket, they can also be worn by women and will look feminine in the process.
Bomber jackets can be either plain or could come in fun printed styles. They can be soft and silky, woolen, or even padded. They may be mostly lightweight but make for great layering pieces. This especially helps with the unpredictability of winter weather. We love playing around with monochrome designs which whilst being very versatile can actually look very smart and well put together.
A bomber jacket is also a versatile fashion piece and can be worn with some jeans and a t-shirt, with some sweatpants, shorts or even an outfit that needs dressing down. They give you a flawless and super stylish feel that will take you anywhere from the supermarket to the pharmacy, church to the office on a casual Friday.
A casual denim jacket
A denim jacket is another staple that can be worn by both men and women throughout every season of the year. They are not only comfortable but are flattering to everyone regardless of age or size. In the fall, denim jackets particularly help you in layering over jumpers & hoodies and under coats. This makes it easier for you to come up with a variety of fun looks. You can wear denim with a variety of colours just as long as these colours flow naturally.
These jackets are also low maintenance. You’ll love just how easy it is to clean them. In fact, you can even spot clean denim jackets.
Aside from looking cool, denim jackets are also long-lasting considering how strong the denim textile is. You can be sure that when you buy one for fall, you’ll be able to wear it for several other fall seasons with no compromise on your overall look. Just always make sure you go for high-quality denim jackets from the most reputable shops or brands.
The perfect leather jacket
Leather jackets are both classic and timeless, meaning they will be around for a long time. They are stylish and add an edge to any outfit. Whether you wear your leather jacket with a dress, a skirt, over a shirt or t-shirt, jeans, sweatpants, or even tailored pants, the look gets instantly elevated.
While they exist in a faux type, original leather is the best to go for. Although it’s on the costly side, original leather will last years. You’ll be able to use it several times for a variety of looks so you’ll get your money’s worth. Generally, it’s strong outerwear for fall and looks fantastic layered over our monochrome men’s & women’s collection
If you find yourself wearing your leather jacket in the winter one too many times, fear not because maintaining it is easy. The fact that it’s low maintenance means even if you live a hectic life, you will be able to clean it quickly before stepping out in it.
Leather jackets get extra points for being available in different styles too. You can get it in motto-style, bomber style, a utility leather jacket, distressed jackets, and many others. All you have to do is pick the jackets in the right size and you’ll be good to go.
The comfy winter knit
Jumpers are popular today thanks to just how much fashion evolves and the perfect unisex fashion staple. The evolution has made these pieces that were previously meant for lounging around or for sporty places more wearable. Hoodies keep you warm during the cooler fall weather and are now available in a variety of styles. They go well with just about any casual outfit you go for. They are particularly helpful if you’re traveling in the fall or if you’re going out but aren’t sure how late you’ll stay out.
Since they’re versatile, you can really pick any footwear when you’re wearing a hoodie especially if it’s in the neutral colours black, white or grey. A great thing about it is that you can always layer something on top of it such as a blazer or a coat. However, should you go for this style, ensure your jumper doesn’t bulge awkwardly. Get a good fit.
You’ll feel comfortable and stylish whilst keeping warm and protected. In fact, wearing them will feel like you’re wrapped in some kind of small blanket.
The trusty trench coat
Trench coats are functional pieces that have been around for a while. They are available in different styles for both men and women and come in different designs, colours and of course different fabrics too.
Trench coats are highly versatile so you can wear them with different pieces and look classy regardless of whether you’re going for a casual look or something dressier even if it involves a pair of jeans. They’re also suitable for different events.
Trench coats are closet staples and are great for men especially because they really don’t have too many accessories options. The trench coat, therefore, elevates their look. For women, a trench coat still allows you to wear your accessories, just as long as they go with your entire look.
Generally, when it comes to styling these amazing pieces in the fall, it’s easier when you go for neutral colours as opposed to brighter ones. However, this does not mean there’s anything wrong with some colour.
As you can see, there are quite a number of outerwear options for fall that suit both men and women. Choosing a specific one has everything to do with your personal dressing preferences. The five options above are a great start as they will have you look super stylish when well-styled.
