Spring is a tricky season to dress for. It’s that funny time of year, when the weather consistently hot enough to commit fully a summer wardrobe, but also not cold enough to layer up like you would in the middle of winter. In short, it can be very annoying – but there a few staple pieces that make things a whole lot easier.
These are pieces you can just throw on and forget about, and best of all, they are all interchangeable as they compliment each other. From striped tees to sweatshirts, suede jackets to button down shirts. These are your spring essentials.
Breton Top – Arket £25
Ideal for channelling a slice of relaxed Riviera cool, many style icons have worn these throughout the years, including the likes of Cary Grant and James Dean. So easy to style, wear this with a pair of well fitting navy chinos and white trainers and get on with your day.
Suede Jacket – Reiss £398
A suede jacket isn’t particularly practical. But, with its unique texture and soft, tactile nature of suede, it’s arguably among the best spring jacket choices. Pick one in navy or beige and it will go with every outfit you can possibly think of.
Sweatshirt – Zara £25.99
Sweatshirts are everywhere nowadays; they come in a myriad of colours and fits, so it’s easy to find one that’s right for you. For ultimate ease, opt for a navy or charcoal grey, as these colours will go with most outfits and add a certain vintage appeal.
Button Down Shirt – Asket £85
A smart casual wardrobe staple, the button down shirt is the ideal choice for dressing well but without being stuffy. This is a garment that works well worn open over a tee and shorts or buttoned up with chinos and loafers.
