What Should You Wear With a Bodywarmer?

The real question is this: how should you style your bodywarmer so it works with your daily outfit. There are many different ways you can incorporate this item into your everyday style to fit with items you already own.

Combining Practicality with Aesthetics

The first thing to consider is how you’re going to be wearing your brand-new bodywarmer. Men’s’ bodywarmers come in many different styles. You’ll want something that keeps you warm but also a piece that will complement the rest of your outfit. Some bodywarmers come in denim and tweed, whereas others come quilted and shiny. Identify which bodywarmer aligns with your style and personality before going ahead with your purchase.

Wearing a Men’s’ Bodywarmer with a Suit

One of the trendiest ways that fashion-savvy men are rocking bodywarmers is by combining it with a suit and formal wear. In particular, a quilted bodywarmer worn over a tailored suit can be an effective method to stay fashionable and warm when you’re walking to the office or going to an event.

If you’re going to dress to impress with your new bodywarmer, choose a matte and trim style, playing the role of an overcoat. Also, experiment with the outfit by keeping the gilet open, as keeping it closed can create too much heat.

Wearing a Bodywarmer with Knitwear

One of the simplest and most effective ways to wear a men’s bodywarmer is by combining it with a form of knitwear. This is a classic look you’re probably used to; it works incredibly well. One way to experiment with this look through wearing a fairly neutral coloured jumper/cardigan (grey, navy, etc.) as the bottom layer and then placing a quilted or black bodywarmer over the top.

However, if you’re feeling a little creative and want to show off your colourful personality, you can design a brighter outfit by adding contrast with the bodywarmer. Don’t be afraid to splash a bit of colour into your fashion; it could pay off.

Wearing a Bodywarmer with a Checked Shirt

Another classic variation you can try out involves combining your bodywarmer with a checked shirt. This look involves many different layers that can heat up fast. Therefore, we recommend you try this look on those particularly chilly days!

Starting with the base layers, pick a checked shirt. The more neutral the base layers, the better, as you can add colour later in the design. Add a slim-fit cardigan next and then put your bodywarmer on top, keeping it open to expose the layers underneath. If you want to dive deeper into this outfit, you can also add a top coat, giving it a heritage-style look.

What’s the Difference Between a Gilet and a Bodywarmer?

The key difference between the two is that bodywarmers are designed to provide warmth and tend to be thicker, whereas Gilets are lighter and are designed to be less restrictive. In general, you’re more likely to see a Gilet under a jacket as they’re slimmer. Gilets also tend to be less warm, hence why they’re used under other pieces of clothing.

Choose your ideal bodywarmer

Bodywarmers for men are still in fashion and it’s pretty clear they aren’t going anywhere. They can be worked into many different types of outfits, whether they are formal or informal, and add an interesting dynamic into your day-to-day look. Not only are they stylish, but they also keep you warm, an essential practical benefit for those cold winter days. Have a look at our selection above and choose a bodywarmer that fits with your ideal look.
