As retailers gear up for the spring season you’re more than likely to have spring break on the brain. So whether you’re planning a vacation or a “stay-cation” there are a few pieces that every man should have to make their spring getaway extra special.
Diesel’s Laurence jacket is the perfect choice for a spring outing. It’s light enough yet heavy enough for the semi-warm weather and the color makes it easy to pair with just about anything. However, should pairing this with a shirt prove to be a cumbersome task, let us steer you in the right direction.
What’s your label: conservative or a pop of color? Either way we have two designers each with one stand-out shirt that can pull your look together, and you’d be surprised which designer goes with which label you chose. For those that like a subdued and sophisticated presence, your best bet would be with Diesel’s Freedom long-sleeve shirt. You get a nice design void of the messiness of too much color. Tommy Hilfiger’s Plaid Poplin Shirt is a fun alternative. If you like to stand out, you can never go wrong with that good-‘ole American red, white, and blue.
If you plan on going out at all, we’d suggest you take along a nice blazer for that posh eatery that everyone’s raving about. Banana Republic’s Tailored Cotton Two-Button Blazer is simple, fitted, and let’s the rest of your outfit shine.
Is there such a thing as a “dressy jean”? Well, if there ever was, Kenneth Cole’s Tinted Leg Dark Wash Denim Jean would fit the bill. The very understated look allows this piece to be versatile meaning you can easily spruce up your outfit with a blazer for a night out or dress it down with a T-shirt for a day in. A more youthful option for the spring weather lies with the Armani Exchange Selvedge Short. Yes, after not seeing them in stores for a while, denim shorts are back. If you plan on being on-the-go wear these with a nice pair of sneakers, but if a leisurely stroll is more your speed, a boat shoe or loafer will do the trick. And the ones we found are a knockout.
The Runway Brushed Leather Penny Loafer shows that Tommy Hilfiger’s got sole… a red sole, to be more specific. The color is easy enough to pair with anything we’ve suggested thus far and the look is sophisticated enough to make anyone hang their heads in both awe of your shoe game and shame at their own.
Your wardrobe is never complete without a nice pair of swim shorts. H&M has a pair for you with a beach-themed design that’s the color of the money you save when making these your purchase.
Finally, you need something in which to store your weekend getaway wardrobe. Cole Haan’s Merced Weekender bag has good space, sharp leather detailing, and a nice, bright color that welcomes the spring season with open arms.
These items make the perfect weekend getaway wardrobe because of their style and versatility. They easily can be used over and over as the days get longer and hotter into the summer. You're Welcome!
