Style Upgrade

Article_hero_996x4471.jpg

Neither freezing nor balmy, snowy nor dry, grey nor bright, spring is a seasonal limbo and dressing accordingly is always a toss-up.

The key to balancing the fickle weather and your sense of style is to build upon your wardrobe of core basics (think button ups, dark denim, and suit separates) with layer-friendly jackets and tees and transitional footwear. Adding these new styles to your closet will extend your winter clothes into the warmer months, keeping your look fresh and seasonally appropriate.

Breathable Blazer. Having flexible layers will keep you prepared for weather that can turn on a dime. If you already have a trench coat, a blazer that can accommodate a sweater and button up underneath is our number one suggestion for what to add to your spring wardrobe. We love the Vince Camuto Men’s Air Slim Fit Wool Blend Blazer; a 50% wool blend means this jacket will keep you warm when the wind kicks up and cool when the sun shines.

Oxford Brogues. A happy medium between the boot and a summery loafer, a new pair of wing-tips is the perfect spring shoe. Opt for a pair with a little personality like a colorful sole or mixed material like these Vince Camuto Bruno brogues which will both lighten up your winter slacks and look fashion-forward paired with cuffed khakis come April.

Layering T-Shirts.  Just like in winter, spring requires some smart layering. To avoid looking bulky as the weather warms up, sub your thin sweaters for long-sleeve shirts and henleys. For choice layering basics, forgo loose t-shirts in favor of a slimming fit like the Vince Camuto Men’s V-Neck Knit T-Shirt.

Lightweight Ties. A subtle but impactful change to your spring wardrobe is updating the fabric of your tie. Stow away your collection of knit, wool or cashmere ties and stock up on ones made of silk or linen. Try the Vince Camuto Seasonal Stripe Tie which will add a new print to your wardrobe and increase the longevity of your winter suit.
