If youíre like most men, you probably donít buy a new jacket or coat very often. But when you do, itís worth investing in a good one. A jacket has to be practical and protective from natural elements. But it also needs to be versatile, able to complement any outfit that itís thrown over.

So when the time does come to buy a new jacket, itís important not to be too won over by the latest trend Ė especially if that trend is nowhere to be seen in two years, when you might still be wearing your coat. Hereís a quick guide to prominent jacket styles for 2013 that offer a great blend of contemporary fashion know-how and timeless elegance.

Military and Magical Styles

One of the most enduring jacket styles for 2013 is the military coat. Military coats have been slowly emerging from the shadows over the last few years and their current prominence on the catwalks proves they have come of age. Look for long military-style coats with wide lapels and strong button details. For a military-influenced style that wonít date, stick to serious colours like black, grey or navy Ė one of this yearís on-trend colours Ė and avoid the bright red variations that have occasionally cropped up over the last decade.

One daring trend that will please Harry Potter fans is cape-style jackets. Capes have been a strong feature of womenswear in the 21st century but are only just turning up in menís fashion boutiques. Some men might be deterred by the strong statement created by capes. But if youíre looking for a jacket-style thatís different and is likely to remain in fashion for another few years, capes are a good bet. Wear a heavy black cape over a suit to a winter wedding, or simply throw it on over smart trousers for stylish daily protection from cold weather.

Inviting Fabrics

Choosing a new jacket isnít just about style Ė itís also about colour and fabric. Menís leather jackets are a strong trend for 2013 and, given that they have lingered blissfully in the fashion background for over half a century, they will certainly be a good fashion investment if you donít already own one. For a double-retro vibe, look for a leather aviator jacket with a sheepskin lining. This 1940s style coat still packs a visual punch. Wear over blue jeans, a white jumper and brown boots for a casual but elegant look.

If youíre dissatisfied with the jackets on offer on the high street, menís tailored jackets might be the ideal solution Ė and itís one thatís always in style. Ask for a style thatís versatile, so you can wear it over jeans or tailored trousers. This way, youíre making the most of your investment, and ensuring it remains a key feature of your wardrobe for years to come.
