Living in Canada, having trust issues with weather is as engrained in us as saying “eh” or “sorry”. The weather throughout the day can range from -5° to +5°. A great way to stay stylish and ready for the unpredictable spring weather is through layering. We chose three go-to jackets to show you how it’s done and what to wear in this “in-between” weather.
This water resistant Strellson jacket is made of lightweight man-made fibers so it is the perfect weight for transitioning from winter to spring. A simple formula when it comes to layering is to keep the certain key pieces neutral so it can be interchanged. We paired a lightly patterned blue shirt with a jersey grey blazer to compliment. The cool colour palette warrants a navy cardigan for extra warmth. We added more character to the outfit with the patterned chinos. Shoe selection is always crucial, we chose these precious brown wingtips to formalize the outfit to completion.
Strellson Water Repellant Jacket ($398), Blue Industry Jersey Blazer ($349), Individual Navy Knit Cardigan ($95), Blue Industry Circle Print Shirt ($170), Outclass Over Dyed Chino ($195), Krane Leather Portfolio ($175) Paradigma Leather Brogue ($375), Nixon Watch ($175)
Rains is definitely a must have for unpredictable weather. It’s completely waterproof and lightweight making it easy to add extra layers for warmth. It’s exactly what to wear between winter to spring or spring to summer.
For a more casual look we paired it with a hoodie from Outclass along with a graphic tee from Aviator Nation. The name might ring a bell; they were recently announced one of the best new American designers by GQ. The print adds a pop of colour. We’re currently loving the new Outclass sneakers, the olive Italian calf leather with the suede heel gives a clean minimal finish.
You can’t go wrong with blue, white and khaki. Presented here with a black jacket from Selected Homme. A black transitional jacket is a versatile closet staple. It goes with essentially everything while keeping you cool and minimal, especially in this untrustworthy weather A great spring office look is a white oxford shirt layered with a blue linen crew neck (no tie), this offers a modern look to a classic silhouette while staying cool.
