We all love to see those first few sunny days after a long cold winter, but with the warmth and hope the sun brings, along comes a new sartorial conundrum; transitional style. We have picked out six key pieces for spring styling, here is how to wear them…
A spring staple; the overshirt is the ultimate in layered looks. This edition comes from PS Paul Smith and is in a soft, subtle green. A navy chino from Norse Projects gives a versatile look and the classic white Armani Exchange sneakers keep a clean and sharp aesthetic. The white graphic t-shirt from Barbour International is perfect as a foundation to build your layered look and a Filson bag completes your look.
A spring layering essential, the gilet is one of our most searched styles. This version comes from Rains and has a subtle quilting for warmth and comfort. The staple sweat comes from Norse Projects and has a go-anywhere, go-with-anything aesthetic. Green NN07 pants give a versatile foundation and the statement BOSS trainers help to modernise and refresh an otherwise classic look.
A bright blue is a key colour to feature in any man’s wardrobe. The dutch blue Woodhouse exclusive from MA. Strum is the perfect example. Evoking clear spring skies, this pairs perfectly with a mid wash denim from BOSS. A classic white pique t-shirt from Fred Perry accents against the blue and keeps the fresh clean spring look. Throw on some of the Unlike Humans sneakers to add a little laid-back luxury and you have a seriously adaptable Spring look.
_THE PADDED JACKET
Ok so we may be headed in to Spring but it’s not quite shorts and a tee weather just yet. This look perfectly balances your Spring colours with an insulated outerwear piece. The tonal jacket from Uniform Bridge & Co. has an oversized fit for a relaxed feel. This also makes it perfect for layering up. A statement spring-hued sweatshirt from Farah adds a touch of wamrth and a nice contrast to the khaki tonal shades. PS Paul Smith provide the t-shirt which keeps it simple and stylish whilst injecting a touch of colour and fun. The super versatile trousers are a perfect backing for the statement uppers. A soft khaki tone and slim fit from the Danish tastemakers; No Nationality, NN07. All finished off with a a clean classic sneaker and if you manage to venture further than your local stroll, the holdall from Rains offers three ways to carry your essentials.
Carrying the fleece trend into spring is easy when you have Ralph at hand. This statement fleece has a bold cream hue and thick warm pile oh and of course, the Polo Ralph Lauren pony. A subtle toned BOSS roll neck underneath ties perfectly. Maharishi bring their functional utility appeal with their unique tapered cargo pants and the footwear comes in the form of an iconic Wallabee silhouette in an updated tonal colourway. A finishing tonal touch from Rains, this bag is super versatile and, of course, rain resistant.
_THE DENIM JACKET
The icon that is the Levi’s Sherpa Lined Denim Trucker Jacket. The perfect jacket to carry you from those chilly days into some spring sunshine. A classic waist length design gives a cropped, casual feel while the sherpa lining means you won’t get caught cold in a spring snap. We have nothing against double denim when it’s done right, but for this look we have gone for a lighter chino pant from BOSS. Soft grey keeps it casual and a slim fit makes them super wearable and versatile. The breton stripe t-shirt comes from Armor Lux so you know it has that premium fabric, perfect fit and laid back luxury style. A suede Chelsea boot is the perfect example of bringing your boot styles from Winter into Spring. The soft shade of suede keeps it tonal and balances perfectly with the chinos. For a more casual feel, switch out the boots for a classic trainer style. Don’t leave the house without your essential rucksack; this edition is from Filson; American outdoors outfitters so you know it’s going to last the journey.
