How to Get Ready for Spring

The warmer weather is finally on its way, and it’s time to start thinking about spring fashion. Whether you are looking for lighter clothes to keep cool while outside, or new shoes to wear with your shorts and tees, spring 2018 has several trends you need to be aware of for the new season. 

Tom Simon, The Clotherie’s sportswear director, shares his favorite trends of the spring to get you ready for the season. 

Color: This spring, color is in.  Break out your favorite light blues, pinks and yellows in everything from dress shirts for the office to lightweight, casual shirts for the weekend.  Or take your suit/sport coat up a notch with a colorful pocket square to add a pop of color to your favorite outfit.  

Linen: The perfect fabric for the spring as it’s lightweight, stylish and keeps you cool all year long. Yes, it does wrinkle a bit after a day of wear, but don’t worry – as the Italians say, “it wrinkles like money.”  Pick a muted color to go under your suit at work or go bold for afternoon fun in the sun. 

Unstructured Blazers: A great style for spring, the unstructured blazer is a relaxed comfortable blazer that is perfect for spring.  It looks sophisticated, but takes away all of the bulk and lining, and is perfect for even the 100 degree temps that will arrive this summer.  Whether in linen, cotton, or other lightweight fabrics, the unstructured blazer is a great transition piece for your next business meeting or a night on the town with friends.
