5. The sporty ‘track jackets’
The athleisure look is trending today, for both men and women!

Similar to bomber jackets, these have elasticated cuffs and waist but are really comfortable and sport an athletic look. In short, track jackets are all you need to look stylish when working out or heading for a morning coffee date. All you need to choose the right pair of bottoms which can either be your track pants or blue/black denim.
6. The ‘hooded style jackets’
As practical as it can be, hooded jackets are a must-have for every man. Keeping in mind the main purpose of a jacket, i.e. to keep you warm and protect your hair and face from the chilly winds or rain, hooded jackets are designed in such a manner.
On the other hand, they also serve another purpose, i.e. to make you look fashionable. You need to choose from the different styles available which are bomber jackets, sweat jackets, and others such. Once you do, you are all set to flaunt your winter outfit!
7. The cold weather ‘parka jackets’
These jackets are specifically designed for cold weather and are best suited when you’re travelling to a chilly region. These are usually longer than other jackets and feature a fur hood. Parka jackets are warm, comfortable, and stylish at the same time. These make for the best option for late-night outings this season.
