How to Layer: Winter Essential Fashion for Short Men

As the winter months press on, staying warm doesn’t mean sacrificing style. Even men under 5’8” can look fashionable with the right layers, and short men’s style doesn’t have to mean looking — or feeling — bulky or scruffy. You can look and feel confident keeping these basic tips in mind when building your winter wardrobe.

Layering for Men: Start at the Base

Especially when it comes to clothes for short men, the right base matters. For winter layers, starting with a long-sleeve shirt that fits closer to the body will not only help keep in the heat, it will provide the right foundation for everything else to come.

The Heather Grey Long Sleeve Pocket Tee is a perfect example of what you should be looking for — it is tailored to fit the right proportions of shorter men, hitting the right length in the torso and arms so it will fit your body perfectly. The material is soft and comfortable as well, so you won’t mind having it against your body all day long as you get everything done on your to-do list.

Another option is to choose a more classic tee-shirt, such as the the Heather Ash Grey V-Neck Tee. For those who tend to run hotter, starting with a short-sleeve t-shirt, rather than a long sleeve one, can be a great way to balance layers with fashion, without losing anything along the way. This soft-touch cotton option will feel great against your skin all day long, and is in the perfect proportions to give you a styled and fitted look.  

How to Layer: Add a Bit of Flair

Where your bottom layer will likely be a simple, fitted tee-shirt, the next layer is where you can add style and personality, while also adding more warmth.

One great option is to add a sweater to the look, such as the Fog Grey Knit Sweater, which is 100% cotton, and is the perfect casual look. Whether you’re headed outside for a walk, or plan to snuggle on the couch with that special someone, this perfect sweater, designed with your body in mind, makes it easy to stay warm and look great at the same time.

Another option, for those men who again run warm, but still need some protection from the elements, is the Trailhead Plaid Shirt. This long-sleeve flannel shirt is designed to be worn untucked, and has the perfect proportions to fit your body type, so you’ll never feel like you’re wearing someone else’s shirt. It’s a bit thicker, making it an ideal winter layer piece to have in the wardrobe to grab and go.

How to Layer Men's Clothes: End Strong with a Tailored Jacket

When your adventures take you into cooler weather than just a sweater can manage, finish your layered look with a jacket designed to fit your body, not one that will completely overwhelm you. You want it to be able to move freely, but it should also fit close enough to the body to actually keep in the heat and keep you in top form no matter what activities you’re enjoying.

On the warmer side, consider the Black Winter Parka, which has proper sleeve and body lengths for short guys, along with features such as a removable hood, a waterproof lining, and a hidden inside pocket. This is an essential wardrobe staple that will serve you well through everything winter might try to throw at you.

If you want something a little lighter, try the Forest Olive Bomber Jacket, which has a relaxed, contemporary design for modern men. It’s a great transitional piece when you need a little more than your shirt or sweater, but it’s not cold enough to break out the heavier parka. It is the perfect layering piece to keep in your closet to grab and go.

Short men’s fashion doesn’t have to mean sacrificing fit to get function. You don’t need to settle for ill-fitting, too-long pieces, and you don’t have to give up on the idea of keeping layering basics in your wardrobe so you don’t have to stop and think about what to grab when you just want to get on with your day. Stay warm, look great, and never compromise on your clothes again.
