Spring Style Forecast:
The Wide Brimmed Hat
Why you should consider sporting a wide brimmed hat.
Spring and summer tend to be more causal seasons. You want to look put together but you also want to be comfortable. Get the most mileage out of your wardrobe by investing in some quality jackets that can pull double duty. They're the kind of outerwear you can easily wear all day, even indoors. Light enough to use as simply an extra layer but substantial enough to provide a little protection when you go outside. From relaxed, unlined blazers to knit cardigans and featherweight suedes, here are some solid options in a range of prices.
There's a casual ease to these jackets, so pair one with washed cotton shirts (with open collars) or layer it over your favorite henley or T-shirt.
The signature spring/summer jacket. Like a good diver watch, this wardrobe workhorse allows you to feel cool and comfortable while looking put together.
When you don't need a jacket, but still want some coverage. Opt for a shawl collar to channel McQueen or go with a more streamlined zippered bomber style.
A lighter and more breathable alternative to your standard leather jacket, but with plenty of classic cool factor. Just make sure to protect it from sudden downpours.
If your wardrobe is devoid of prints, you might be taking your style too seriously.
