Women can always appreciate a personalized take on a classic men’s look.

Springtime dressing for men involves clever layering with the right pieces.  To bring your A-game to both work and play, the below staples will complete your wardrobe foundation for the season.  These pieces are what women actually want to see guys wear along with advice on how to pull it off.

Polo Shirt.  An essential on the golf course and for springtime weekend getaways, the classic polo shirt exudes collegiate cool and can easily elevate an outfit.  A polo shirt is always my go-to suggestion for any guy looking to achieve that “not too dressed up” look.  For those that have one in every color, why invest in another one?  This season, quality fabric and shape are important in order to create a preppy silhouette that isn’t baggy or disheveled.  Stick to neutral colors, such as the Vince Camuto Men’s Short Sleeve Knit Polo in black, charcoal or pea coat navy.

Chino Pant.  Well-fitted chino pants are another essential to an updated and fresh spring wardrobe.  Chinos should be a modern slim cut, versatile enough to wear to work with a blazer or rolled or cuffed on the weekends with a t-shirt.  Step up your fashion game with a pair of the Vince Camuto Men’s Slim Fit Chino Pant in a bold or bright color.

Plaid or Pattern Button-Down Shirt. A welcomed break from the solid office button down, a checked or patterned shirt allows guys to roll up their sleeves for an edgy, “lived-in” look. I encourage guys to experiment with pattern, like the Vince Camuto Men’s Long Sleeve Leaf Print Shirt and the Vince Camuto Men’s Slim Fit Check Shirt, which can establish and define your overall look. Be your own style consultant and pick a print suitable for the type of company, occasion or season.

Bright and Contrasting Spring Socks.  A quick way to enhance your signature spring time style is to add a pair of socks with a pop of color and pattern.  As subtle as socks are to a tailored or casual outfit, you will earn major style points. Choose contrasting colors that compliment your accessories or trousers.  You can opt for Vince’s own signature color, like the Vince Camuto Men’s Square Geo Grid Sock in Strong Blue. Or, amp up the color with the Vince Camuto Men’s Striped Ombre Sock in Purple Passion.

Spring Jacket.  For that final layer to a perfectly curated springtime wardrobe, a light jacket can be thrown on over any combination of the pieces above and be stylishly appropriate for any occasion.  My advice for guys is to find a jacket that can be interchangeable from work to play.  For the Vince Camuto man, choose a sophisticated shape, like the Vince Camuto Men’s Air Jacket, a new take on the structured blazer that is lightweight and undone. Simplicity is key with outerwear, like the Vince Camuto Men’s Zip Topcoat, which offers a transitional wearability.

First impressions are measured equally by confidence and appearance.  Women always notice when you dress confidently.  With these essential and classic spring time pieces, you can be sure your look is second glance worthy.
