5 must have winter streetwear items

Winter is the perfect time to start exploring streetwear if you haven’t already. This time of year it’s all about adding layers and creating your own curated look which is ideal for this style of clothing!

I’ve picked out 5 items that will get your streetwear wardrobe off to a strong start this winter.

1. The chore jacket

Chore jackets are a legit, original workwear item. As the name suggests, they were worn by workers as an easy go-to item to layer up and add a bit of warmth when needed. Although our work may be a little less strenuous than before, it’s still an ideal, super cool item to add some warmth to an outfit.

2. The chunky trainer

The dad trainer has been a key item for a little while now and this chunky silhouette isn’t going anywhere for winter. Not only is that little extra sole ideal for wet and damp conditions, the oversize, tough exterior creates the look of warmth that a boot provides but with the street cred of a trainer.

3. The bag

During the colder months you’re likely to be carrying a few extra items. Tissues, lip balm, moisturiser are all going to make an appearance and you’re gonna need something better than your pockets for storage. A cross body bag or bum bag is ideal for keeping all these small bits and pieces in one safe place and is way cooler than your traditional ‘man bag’.

4. The fisherman

Did you know that about 40-45% of our body heat is lost from our head? If not, then you need to get your hands on a fisherman beanie sharpish. Understated and available in a huge range of fabrics and styles, this style of headwear is a must have this winter.

5. The sweatshirt

Sweatshirts are the epitome of streetwear. There’s no look that can’t be finished off with a simple, classic sweater. Keep it simple with block colours or opt for big brand logos and collegiate teams for that sports luxe finish. Sweatshirts are ideal for layering under jackets and coats as the winter weather really kicks in.
