There is no shame in investing in brand-new, comfortable clothing. True, the last two years have seen a dramatic shift in our daily attire. However, each deviation from the norm has ultimately resulted in men becoming more savvy shoppers. Consider this: Rather than making frivolous impulse purchases or succumbing to the hype surrounding overly trendy pieces, your winter wardrobe investments are more targeted, allowing you to focus on what provides comfort, what is necessary to combat the elements, and which garments are versatile enough to be worn on repeat.
Choosing the Perfect Winter Clothing Can Be Difficult
Even with the appropriate winter clothing, it can be difficult for any guy to determine what to pair together for the optimal level of comfort without sacrificing cool style. The ideal winter ‘fit should appear casual, effortless, and incorporate all your favorite comfortable pieces. While your formal suiting and neckties have been relegated to the back of your closet, we’ve compiled a list of essential winter outfit ideas for all cold-weather occasions, from cozy WFH hours to weekend walks on snowy trails. You may already have a few of these wardrobe essentials in your closet, which is fantastic. However, if you do not, consider these high-quality duds to be worthwhile investments that will ensure you cover all your bases this winter.
#1. Below Freezing Outfits
When confronted with harsh winter conditions, does it matter how they look? Perhaps not, but that does not mean you cannot purchase fashionable winter gear for your daily movements in frigid temperatures. Begin with your winter coat, which is the most critical layer in combating the cold. Choose a windproof, waterproof, insulating, and easy-care down jacket. While the price tag may be prohibitively high, well-made outerwear can withstand the elements for many winters to come. For added protection, a long-sleeve tee with built-in heat technology is ideal for providing additional warmth without adding unnecessary bulk to your torso.
#2. City Sweats
Who says sweatpants can’t be stylish? Take to the city streets wearing a winter coat to add structure and tailoring to your relaxed sweatpants. If your sweatpants or fleece pants have a minimalist vibe, inject some style into your winter ensemble by adding printed pieces and graphic garb. A simple retro sneaker provides the ideal counterpoint to your street-ready ensemble. Finally, it’s time to mask up—but choose something that complements the overall style vibe you’re going for—those disposable face masks simply will not do.
#3. Winter Workout Enthusiast
Given the amount of time spent indoors during the winter, taking your workout outside provides a welcome change of scenery. Nonetheless, your winter gear must be light enough to help you improve your fitness game without impairing your performance. All you need are a few additional layering pieces for added warmth, such as leggings to wear under your workout shorts and a stretchy-yet-insulating puffer jacket to pair with your graphic running tee. Simple and elegant.
Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo is undoubtedly one of the greatest soccer players to have ever played the game. Since his debut in 2002, the forward has broken a myriad of records, and despite having celebrated his 36th birthday in February, he isn’t showing any signs of stopping anytime soon.
Ronaldo Celebrated Two Remarkable Milestones in a Single Game
On March 2, 2021, the Juventus player made his 600th league appearance against Spezia. The Portuguese striker also scored his 20th goal for the 2020/2021 Seria A season, meaning that he reached the twenty-goal mark for a 12th consecutive season.
Ronaldo netted the third goal in his team’s 3-0 victory on home soil. He concluded a rapid counter-attack after being assisted by Uruguayan midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur. The first two goals were scored by Spanish striker Alvaro Morata and Italian winger Federico Chiesa.
With this goal, Cristiano became the first player in the history of soccer to score at least 20 goals in one of Europe’s top five leagues for twelve straight seasons. The milestone allowed him to win another battle in his legendary rivalry against the Argentine Lionel Messi who is currently at 19 goals and is soon expected to become the second player with this stunning achievement.
Juventus Is Getting Closer to the League’s Top
The victory against Spezia allowed the “Bianconeri” to move within four points of AC Milan in the third position of the Seria A table. The Italian championship is currently topped by Inter Milan who is ten points ahead of Juventus, but the Turin-side has a game in hand.
Despite being in great form, experts aren’t convinced that Ronaldo will be able to help his side win their tenth consecutive Seria A title. The “Bianconeri” have been inconsistent throughout the season while Inter under the management of former-Juventus coach, Antonio Conte are showing a significant improvement in compression with previous seasons.
One thing is certain, the remaining games until the championship’s finale will keep Seria A enthusiasts in absolute suspense.
