Spring is always welcome, it brings with it warmer weather and a host of new life. Everything seems brighter and as a man who likes to look good, having a fresh new wardrobe is key. Having a good wardrobe comes from years of buying the right colours and styles to suite your personal brand.
Certain types of men’s clothes for spring are simply essential. As the weather transitions and temperatures slowly rise, it’s important to have some key items on hand to make it as comfortable as possible. It also helps if the items are stylish – and that’s an easy feat in today’s refreshing fashion climate, when designers recognize that men are just as concerned with fashion as they are function. Consider these items when shopping for your warmer weather wardrobe:
A lightweight jacket is an essential part of spring’s line-up. A trench coat is a classic option that not only protects clothing from rain, but also looks incredibly stylish. There are many varieties available, ranging from single- to double-breasted and the standard beige to black. A neutral shade is preferred, because it plays well with everything from casual outfits to work basics. If you prefer something more relaxed, opt for a nylon parka. This is equally perfect for rainy weather, shields you from rare cold spells and typically features a hood for a little extra coverage.
A pair of crisp pants is always a wardrobe essential. During spring, seek out light materials, like cotton or linen, and stick with streamlined silhouettes that look great whether you’re at work or play. Since your tops are likely to be vibrant or at least feature a low-key print, keep your pants on the understated side in shades of beige, tan, brown and navy. Black is always a no-fail option, too.
Most men own at least one or two classic button-down shirt. Bulk up this part of your wardrobe during spring. Crisp shirts in light colors are perfect for work and chilling, and look awesome with everything – suit jackets, khakis and, occasionally, even a pair of nice shorts. Now is the time to play with prints, since spring is all about color!
A comfortable pair of shorts will come in handy when temperatures start to go crazy towards the end of the season. Perfect for relaxed weekends, gardening, and family outings, relaxed khaki shorts are just made for spring. A trendy option, the cargo short, features pockets along the legs and looks fresh, never falls off the trend cycle and modern. Dress the look up with slip-on loafers and keep things low-key with a T-shirt and canvas sneakers.
Don’t worry – you can lock up your heavy knitwear, but it’s still a good idea to have a couple of lightweight sweaters on hand. A V-neck looks smart and is versatile enough to wear with jeans on casual occasions and with trousers. Go for cotton which will keep you comfortable when it’s not quite cold, yet not exactly hot either.
The main focus for spring should be on is material. Choose fabrics that are light and comfortable, as it’s change of season, you might be layering in the mornings and evenings. This way you also don’t get too warm during the day. Finally… never underestimate the importance of a jacket. Always keep one handy either in the car or gym bag, you’ll be so glad you have it when the weather turns.
