There are a lot of people who have still failed to master the urban trend during the winter. As a style that never seems to die or even grow tired, it's worth addressing this fashion and mastering it as winter leaves, because the urban look is something you can continue to wear through the early days of spring and combine with other clothes as the year goes on.
Wearing a sweater underneath a jacket is one of the key trends observed by the fashion bods at the Guardian, and the best thing is that they can be hugely varied in style yet still effortlessly work with outerwear to provide a fantastic look. Whether you're buying a more streetwise jumper from Stussy at Size or opting for a high-class piece from John Smedley or Gucci, simply adding it over a plain t-shirt and under a pea coat or a leather heritage coat may be a great option for you.
In terms of headwear, it's finally time to stop wearing novelty hats that have kooky designs. They were never really in style anyway and solely served as the preserved of more pretentious or "hilarious" contingents of the social scene. Simple solutions are the best for this; ski caps, fedoras, flat caps and even bowler hats allow you to look great and show character without making you look like a fool.
If you want the ultimate piece for layered clothing, gilets are perfect for the urban winter style. These padded vest-like offerings are the perfect barrier against the cold and can act as the outermost piece on warmer days as spring and summer approach. You can even break certain rules, like wearing it over the top of a jumper that could previously only be topped by a coat. One rule of thumb needs to be adhered to, though: if you wear something chunky underneath, the gilet needs to match it in appropriate thickness.
Finally, remember that one thing which once defined the urban look is now dead in the water. Whatever you do, avoid big and beefy puffer jackets - they just make you look silly.
