Styling Jackets for Short Men: The Ultimate Winter Coat Guide

Finding the best jacket for short men can be difficult. Most men’s fashion brands sell jackets that look oversized. The sleeves are too long, the body is too big, and it feels like you’re wearing a jacket that’s two sizes too big. But when you find the right jacket for especially for short men that fits your shorter frame, how do you style it? What do you wear it with?

In this guide, we’ll cover several types of jackets and how you can style them to make the ultimate winter coat.

Styling parkas for short men

First up is the parka. Parkas for short men are hard to find. Most brands make parkas that end up being way too big and bulky. That might be okay if you’re in the dead of winter and having to walk through sub-freezing cold temperatures, but it’s usually overkill and generally doesn’t look good.

Our suggestion when styling parkas for short men is twofold: complement and layer.

The color of your jacket should determine what other colors you wear your parka with. We recommend wearing neutral colors all around. For example, a black parka with grey chino pants. This will make choosing your outfit way easier and take off a little bit of mental stress at the beginning of your day.

The next tip is to layer. Not only does layering give you some extra warmth, it also adds depth to your outfit. When you’re layering your parka, you can wear a slightly more complicated pattern underneath. For example, you can throw a plaid flannel underneath with a t-shirt as your base layer.

Styling bomber jackets for short men

Bomber jackets have recently become a more popular trend in the menswear world, and for good reason. They’re incredibly versatile and give you the ability to dress up or down, depending on the occasion.

Our suggestion for styling bomber jackets follows the same two principles as we outlined with parkas: complement and layer. 

Since bomber jackets are typically a thinner jacket, you’ll definitely want to consider layering in the colder weather. But come springtime, bombers look great on their own.

Picking the right color for your bomber jacket follows the same reasoning as above. We suggest wearing neutral colors for the most part.

Styling denim jackets for short men

Wearing a denim jacket can be hit or miss. Different brands have different cuts and measurements. But no one can argue that a great denim jacket is a classic menswear piece. It’s a great layer for the after-work happy hour.

We suggest wearing neutral colored pants or jeans that have a complementary shade to your denim jacket. Most denim jackets are some shade of blue denim, so we recommend wearing grey or navy pants. You’ll want to avoid wearing jeans that are too similar to your jacket. You don’t want to end up wearing a canadian tuxedo.

Color-coordinating your jacket: short men’s style

Finding the right colors to coordinate your jacket with can be difficult, but that’s why we’re here to help. For each jacket above, we suggested wearing neutral colors. That’s a safe bet for any occasion.

But if you want to be a little trendier, you can definitely wear bolder colors to complement your jacket. We just recommend sticking to one bold color or pattern throughout your entire outfit, as it can look really sloppy when you’re pairing two patterns with three different colors.

How a Jacket Should Fit Short Men

Finding the right jacket that fits short men and looks stylish is more difficult than it needs to be. When considering the fit of the jacket, pay attention to your sleeve length, the cut, the body length, and the bagginess of the sleeves.
