5 Stylish Spring Essentials



Spring is here! Finally. Time to put away the heavy coats and look forward to warmer days. Here are 5 spring wardrobe tips to help you get ready for spring and stay stylish.

Loafers

Nothing says warm weather more than leather loafers. Loafers are a stylish alternative to Oxfords. They signal a relaxed but elegant vibe for any man on-the-go. The low profile of loafers can even make your legs seem longer. Don't forget the no-show socks once the weather really warms up. After wearing your leather loafers, let them air out overnight before you put them away. Genuine leather is breathable allowing moisture to escape. However, the insole and lining of the shoe can become damp with all day wear. Airing them out allows the shoe to dry and not trap in odors.



Umbrella

Spring also brings plenty of rain. Protect your outfit with a stylish, functional umbrella. Cheap umbrellas you can purchase at your local drugstore aren't going to cut it. Spending more on a quality umbrella is an investment in your overall wardrobe. Besides, once you spend more on an umbrella, you'll be careful not to lose it. Select an umbrella color and style that will compliment a variety of outfits from dress to casual. Determine if you want something that's compact and can easily fold away or if you prefer one that doesn't. The best umbrellas have either a metal or wood shaft and the canopy is made of tightly woven nylon or waxed cotton. For extra style points, pick a color other than black.




Jacket

Jackets are a great piece to combat the unpredictable temperatures associated with spring weather. But not just any jacket, pick something with an interesting pattern, bold color or cool graphic print. There are many jacket options that'll keep you cool and covered for those days when the weather is unpredictable. If you can only get one jacket for spring, choose one that looks great with dress or casual outfits.




Casual sneakers

Casual sneakers have the ability to elevate an outfit by blending athleticism and style. In addition, casual sneakers can double as a low impact workout trainer. Casual sneakers have become increasingly popular as an alternative to dress shoes. You can wear casual sneakers to run errands or on date night. Casual sneakers also look great with suiting. Add an insole for added comfort and your sneakers will feel great all day.




Anything with stripes

Yes, you can wear stripes. Horizontal stripes are more flattering for many body shapes. Traditional nautical stripes, uneven stripes or accessories with stripes are all great ways to incorporate stripes into your wardrobe. Balance your striped top with plain jeans or chinos to create symmetry. Select warm colors like brown and blue for spring weather. Stripes also look great in accessories like watches, bags, or shoes. Just stick to the same color family to keep your look cohesive.




Spring style is all about keeping things light and fun. Incorporating a few key elements into your wardrobe will ensure you are always stylish, refined and dressed for the season. What are some of your favorite wardrobe essentials for spring? Let me know.
