Our top five shirt styles for winter

Posted on: 25th Oct, 2016

Looking to revamp your wardrobe for winter? If you’re in the market for warm winter fabrics and fashionable winter shirt styles, you’ll find everything you need at Acorn Fabrics. From the classic checked shirt to must-have winter work wear, why not explore our top five shirt styles for winter?

Checked

If winter fashion is high on your list of priorities, a checked shirt is a must-have addition to your wardrobe. Perfect for autumn and winter, the checked pattern is one of those that never goes out of fashion and is ideal for both work and play.

During the winter, we recommend layering your checked shirt. If you prefer the laid-back look, layer your shirt over a white tee. For something a little more formal, team your shirt with a V-neck jumper or a tweed blazer.

Brushed cotton

If you’re looking for a fabric that’s guaranteed to keep you warm, there’s no better choice than brushed cotton. The fabric, which has been brushed to remove its lint and fibres, is soft to touch and soft on skin and great at insulating the body too.

Our brushed cotton shirting isn’t just practical; it’s stylish too and available in a huge range of colours and styles. You’ll have the choice of plain, block colour and trendy checked designs too. All styles can be paired with chinos, denim jeans or formal trousers for a look that’s timeless and always on-trend.

Twill

Twill shirting is perfect for winter and available in many varieties – from herringbone and denim to houndstooth and cavalry. Its high yarn count gives it a more expensive look than other types of shirting and also ensures it’s that little bit warmer for winter.

How you wear your twill shirt is entirely dependent on the type of fabric you choose. Formal twill shirting materials look great under a jacket and blazer and paired with dark chinos. If you pick one of our casual twill materials, like our Fife 25 Green Check Fabric, just pair with some dark jeans.

Denim

While denim is technically a twill fabric, we thought it deserved its own space in our top five. Denim is one of those materials that’s a must winter. It’s hard-wearing, durable and looks good too – as well as being highly versatile.

At Acorn Fabrics, we’ve only got the one denim fabric in our collection – but that’s all you need. Our Denim 300 Indigo Fabric can be worn open and paired with a tee; tucked into darker trousers or jeans for a look that’s smart and fashionable, or layered under a thick woolly cardigan or winter blazer. The choice is yours.

 

Marcella

Of course, our top five wouldn’t be complete without a black tie event fabric. Marcella, one of our favourite winter fabrics, is warm and wearable and perfect for any posh event. Its heavy waffle weave adds a luxurious touch while the material itself is great for cold, winter events.

Available in black and white, it’s easy to get your black tie look right. Just make sure to visit a tailor to ensure the fit of shirting complements your body type.

Don’t forget to shop our offers page too. We have plenty of fabrics reduced by up to 50% – including winter-ready shirting and trendy tartan fabrics.
