4 Stylish Winter Mini-Break Men’s Outfit Ideas
Winter is possibly the best season for the stylish man. The colder weather gives the perfect excuse to layer up those staple pieces in your wardrobe and look more sophisticated sporting those on-trend darker and muted tones.
A winter mini-break can involve many situations where different styles of outfits are needed and practicality against difficult weather and terrains should be taken into account. Are you an explorer, looking to go on long walks and take in your frosty surroundings? Or are you the type to wine and dine, ending the evening by an open fire?
Whatever the weather and occasion, here are four winter mini-break fashion ideas to ensure you’ll have a warm and stylish break away.
1. Date Night Best
Is this mini-break being taken with a loved one? If so, you will want to make sure you are putting your best self forward for romantic nights out. There aren’t many occasions the average Joe gets to get suited and booted, so make a special date night away the reason to wear your finest formal wear.
A classic slim fit black suit teamed with a white herringbone Savile Row Company made to measure shirt (add a silk tie if you want to look a little more polished). Adding a grey V-neck cashmere jumper and black patent Oxfords, finishes an outfit that not only screams suave, but guarantees warmth if a romantic stroll is on the cards.
2. Smart Casual Day Wear
On a mini-break you are likely to end up in a range of places. From visiting a museum to going out for lunch to an impromptu shopping trip. This is why it is best you chose an outfit that suits most situations.
By choosing formal trousers and leather Chelsea boots, you’ll be prepared for a bite to eat in a high-class establishment, however a roll neck ecru jumper gives the look a dressed-down, casual feel, while still appearing smart.
Pairing this look with a navy double breasted wool coat and tan leather driving gloves rounds off this chic winter outfit.
3. Cosy Night In
Just because you choose to have a night in by the fire, doesn’t mean you should opt for those bleach stained joggers and baggy top (think of your Instagram aesthetics!). Instead, why not treat yourself to cosy, fashionable nightwear which feels as good as it looks. Tartan pyjamas are a must in winter, giving the impression of festivity without the tacky, obvious references.
If you have chosen a cabin for your mini-break, it could become chilly, a sheered fleece robe and soft grey mule slippers will keep you toasty long after the fire has gone out, and will make getting out of bed in the morning a little less painful.
4. Casual Woodland Stroll
What is a winter mini-break without a wintery woodland walk? Admiring frosted cobwebs and bare branches is a must of this season. However, it is obviously not an occasion for a suit, no matter how refined you wish to look for the duration of your getaway. But don’t despair, it doesn’t mean that all sense of style has to go out of the window.
When preparing a stylish outfit for winter walks practicality has to come first. The terrain is likely to be slippery, either with mud or ice, therefore sturdy, leather boots with a good grip are a must. A burgundy thick knit crew neck jumper along with a black borg face jacket finished with a pair of simple, slim fit black jeans will guarantee warmth from the bitter winter air; leaving you with a classic example of an on-trend winter ensemble.
