#OOTD: The Best Way to Layer Up with a Shawl Cardigan This Season

So, another cold winter day dawns, and there you stand, looking at your closet inquisitively. It’d be nice to have a sweater that  mixes things up from the routine, something that stands out quitely and stylishly for its versatility and toughness … my friends, I’ve found that classic sweater for you. But what to wear it with? That’s why we’re here today to talk how to wear a shawl collar cardigan, and specifically, the excellent Faherty Brand sweater shown below — it’s refined enough for the office (more on that in a second), yet equally at home when out and about this winter. The best shawl collar cardigan on the market? Well, it’s certainly up there. The rugged shawl cardigan is a layering favorite of menswear luminaries like Daniel Craig (we’re big fans of his here), and we’re drawing a bit of inspiration from him as to how we style your new favorite sweater this winter. So, you’re going to find handy cold-weather essentials like a rugged waxed quilted parka, plus must-haves like the best men’s pants for winter weather (but they’re far from snow pants, rest assured). Other winter-friendly pieces, like the remarkably tough Nicks Boots Falcon Boots, are going to carry you through the season handily and in style. But as we’ve said before, you’ve got to kick it off the right way — with perhaps the best shawl collar cardigan around. From there, the possibilities are endless. OK, let’s dive in.

A cozy cardigan goes very well with other rugged, winter-ready menswear picks.

 

From the small accessories that make a big difference (like the best winter gloves for men) to the small details that actually come in quite handy (witness one of the more durable everyday bags out there), I’d say this #OOTD is primed to take on the season in style. From the office — thanks to the Western Rise TechWool Flannel Shirt — to the speakeasy and your favorite coffee shop, wearing one of the best shawl cardigans really can take you  just about anywhere. The key here is ensuring you’re looking sharp both in and out of the elements, so a tough winter jacket like the Flint and Tinder Quilted Waxed Field Jacket is going to be your best friend when it comes to winter layering. Naturally, winter-ready boots are going to keep you safe and dry, no matter how snowy it gets out there. Of course, the seemingly insignificant details shouldn’t be overlooked — that’s why you’re wearing one of the toughest casual watches, after all. And when you mix it all up with some of the best men’s pants for winter weather, your entire look is complete in a way that’s both office-friendly and yet rugged & adventure-ready. But going back to what we’ve said before, the right shawl cardigan makes it all go round. Check it out for yourself, then let me know how you feel on Twitter. Thanks for reading!
