Keep Warm With Overshirts

What should you wear when it’s too hot for a coat but too cold without? Spring can be warm, but you can still be met with those sudden rain showers or gusts of wind. Ditch the winter coat and opt for a lighter feel but still sturdy over-shirt that offers you that extra bit of warmth when the Spring weather just isn’t quite behaving.

Nudie Jeans’ Overshirt Army Jacket in Khaki is an excellent choice for this spring.

Brighten Up With White T-shirts

Spring is all about being ‘lighter and brighter’, an easy place to implement this is to put the dark T-shirts to one side and boost your spring look with a light or white coloured T-shirt. A very simple and sensible option but yet it has no fault to any spring look, accompanied with an over-shirt or denim jacket you’re more than set to take on Spring.

If white is too boring, then opt for bright graphics t-shirts in blues, pinks and pastel orange.

Look Fresh With White Trainers

Part 2 of the ‘lighter and brighter’ spring dress philosophy is extended to the feet! Ditch the heavy boots and the dark trainers and get your hands (or feet) on a pair of white or lighter trainers. They’re a perfect casual addition to Spring-ready yourself for the brighter and lighter weather. Here are a couple of our top picks for white trainers for this Spring:
