Spring has officially sprung, and it’s time to update your wardrobe with a few new-season essentials to keep you looking stylish. Let’s start with your wardrobe must-haves this season, followed by some investment pieces that you’ll get the wear out of for a few years to come.
When it comes to spring wardrobe updates you should have, let’s start with from the inside layers and work out. Update your underwear drawer and throw old stuff away. In the winter you might have been wearing thicker, woolly boot socks but it’s time to ditch those in favour of thinner cotton varieties and for some footwear styles you might choose to forego the socks completely as it warms up.
Chinos and chino shorts are a nice, lighter alternative to denim, and can be dressed up or down so they make a very versatile spring wardrobe update that all men should have. Pair chino trousers with a t shirt and some trainers for a relaxed weekend vibe, or with a collared shirt, blazer and smart shoes for office attire.
Throw away those old shirts that have marks and stains – you need to replace these with fresh new styles for the spring. Stick with solid colours or subtle patterns – and don’t taint your wardrobe contents by falling for gimmicky slogan tees.
It might be spring, but that means spring showers are never far away, so along with your new trousers and shirts, you also need to update your coat for a seasonal-appropriate option. Spring coats for men range from leather jackets to macs to overcoats, so you can pick up a few different styles to suit every occasion.
Investment pieces for your wardrobe this spring, like most other seasons, are your coat and your shoes. If you get these right, then you can be forgiven for putting less effort into the other areas of your attire. When it comes to putting a stylish step forward, we have lots of new season styles we think you’ll love for spring. Here’s our top 3 men’s shoes for spring that would make a very sensible investment in your new season wardrobe:
