After a final flurry of snow and a last blast of icy wind, it looks like the weather is finally turning in our favour. But we’re now in a notoriously changeable period, where you might start the day in sunshine, travel through wind and rain before getting to a toastily warm fireside bar. While some may see dressing for this changeable climate as a sartorial challenge, we see it as a style opportunity.
Transitional dressing is all about layers, so let us ensure that you arrive in style at the ultimate spring wardrobe.
The Outer Layers
Yes, it’s warming up a little, but it’s still jacket season, no question. As you bridge the gap between winter and spring, you might as well straddle the similarly fluid divide between smart and casual. This lightweight water-resistant casual coat is a weather-ready essential that looks as sharp over a dress down suit as it does when combined with a cotton polo and dark, slim leg jeans.
The Evergreen Knit
Light, finely-detailed knitwear is a speciality of ours, and such pieces are key to unifying a transitional outfit at this time of year. For a sophisticated look with a touch of interest in texture and knit structure, opt for a timeless crew neck jumper in seasonal olive green. After something a little more simple? Try one of our essential merino-wool blend crew necks in this season’s trending colour – mauve.
The Light at the End of the Tunnel
Happily, all this transitioning will actually lead somewhere. Summer will be upon us sooner than you think, so the smart money is investing in stylish warm-weather clothing right now. Our new range of boldly patterned casual shirts, such as this classic maritime-inflected piece, or this nature print, Cuban-collar short-sleeve, are light and breezy enough to ensure that you retain your composure in even the most tropical of climates. Meanwhile our wide range of chinos are perfect for right now or when the sun finally gets his hat on.
