Sunbathing, swimming in the sea, barbecues … all gets a bit repetitive after a while. Yep, summer is overrated.
Winter isn’t too far away though! And that means more opportunities to grow a beard, wear long overcoats with the collars up and bring out your winter fashion alter ego.
Check out our winter fashion characters, which one are you?
1. The Lumberjack
Dressed in a thick checked shirt and sporting a well-groomed winter beard for warmth, The Lumberjack gets out there in the wilderness and chops up firewood (for fashion shoots). When we say wilderness we mean garden and this lumberjack doesn’t like to be outside in the cold too long so uses a speedy log splitter rather than a man axe.
2. The Eskimo
It’s snow joke, but The Eskimo doesn’t really like the cold and always makes sure he is properly wrapped up. He does like the winter fashions though. So it’s fur baby and lots of it! Fur hat, fur coat and fur gumboots with layers of thermals underneath will keep this guy feeling snug and looking good.
3. The Die Harder
The Die Harder doesn’t really feel the cold even when it’s so Baltic that the penguins stay in. Sporting a sleeveless shirt and jeans, here’s a guy that gets on with the job and makes sure there’s lots of opportunities to catch a glimpse of those impressive guns when logs are being lifted and that. What a hero.
4. The Maverick
This is a man that acknowledges the seasonal fashions but refuses to tag along exactly like everybody else. He’ll wear dinner jackets with sneakers or furry Russian hats with a T-shirt and he owns enough bravado to carry off whatever look he wants.
5. The Action Man
There’s always a nod towards the military with The Action Man’s style. Bit of khaki or camo thrown in somewhere, military boots, dog tags and a long practical-looking, but super stylish overcoat that would be fit for a general — a fashion general that is!
6. The Chap
Dapper and dashing, The Chap dresses like an eccentric gentleman. Woollen trousers, shiny shoes and a smart shirt are his foundations during winter. Topped off with a cashmere polo neck sweater and belted trench coat with a cravat to keep out the draught with aplomb. The finishing touch is his trilby hat to keep the snow from his brow when he’s smoking his pipe outside under a streetlight.
7. The Depp
Think pirate meets Musketeer meets global enigma. Cowboy boots, blue denim jeans and snakeskin-print shirt for starters, then it’s all about the accessories for The Depp. Funky shades, and maybe some ethnic jewellery… perhaps a pocket watch too? The coat is optional as The Depp tends to wear lots of layers of clothing rather than a big coat.
