Now we understand how difficult that can be, what with all the different styles available in the market. But don’t get overwhelmed because we have put together a list of all the different kinds of jackets you need in your wardrobe to get through this winter!
1. Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is an absolute wardrobe essential for all you boys out there. Not only does it keep you warm but it makes even a simple T-shirt and jeans look like a well put together attire. With so many different styles to choose from, you’d be spoilt for choice. And if you really want to make a statement, move over the usual black and tan and pick a leather jacket in a unique colour!
2. Letterman Jacket
The Letterman Jacket is also known as the Varsity Jacket. But if you’ve watched enough American highschool TV series you’d know it as the jacket the jocks wear. Look for something with leather sleeves or in bright colours with contrasting cuffs and style it with a pair of chinos or your trusty denims and white sneakers and you’re good to go!
3. Bomber Jacket
The Bomber Jacket, also known as the flight jacket, was initially worn by flight crew members of the US Air Force. Today, however, it is a staple in almost every cool guy’s wardrobe, no matter the profession, thanks to how casual yet stylish it looks! Whether you go all out and experiment with colours or stick to the classic blue, black and olive green, a bomber jacket is definitely something you need to have in your closet this season!
4. Biker Jacket
You don’t need to own a bike to rock a biker jacket this season. All you need is the right attitude! Essentially a leather jacket with more zips and a rugged look, a biker jacket is exactly what you need for that slightly edgy look. When it comes to biker jackets, we’d say go for the classic black and pair it with your go-to denims, a T-shirt and some ankle boots!
5. Denim Jacket
The most versatile of all the jackets, a denim wardrobe is something every guy needs in his wardrobe. Rather than the regular blue denim jacket go for grey or whitewashed denims and wear it with your jeans and T-shirt or a tank and joggers for that athleisure look.
6. Track Jackets
Track jackets are a wardrobe must-have for every boy out there. You can throw it over your workout wear or casual jeans and T-shirt and get ready to head out in literally no time.

Invest in a good quality puffer jacket and it’s enough to keep you warm all winter. It also a good idea to experiment with colours rather than sticking to the basic colours when it comes to puffer jackets.
8. Corduroy Blazer
Blazers are every dudes wardrobe essential no matter the season. But for winter you can invest in a classy and stylish corduroy blazer which will not only keep you super warm and cosy but will also take your outfit a notch higher.
