While it seems women everywhere are talking about spring styles since Fashion Week, there tends to be a bit less conversation happening on the male side of things. This could be attributed to the fact that it’s not even February yet and therefore, thinking about what pieces of clothing you’re going to need two or even three months down the road, feels a bit like jumping the gun. On the other hand, with new styles coming into our store every single day at Stone Rose, we’re all about getting ahead of the pack. While we recently launched our 2018 Spring Style Guide, we want to give you a bit more context about why our favorite looks this year have been chosen and which of our products will be perfect for helping you pull off the best spring looks.
In this post, you will learn a few different things. Not only will we teach you how you can use some of your existing fall wardrobe pieces in your spring looks, but we will also give you the secret to wearing pastels and show you our preferred styles of the season.
What Are The Rules For Men’s Spring Styles?
As we spoke about above, you may not feel as though it is time for you to begin planning for spring outfits. On the other hand, seasonal changes can sneak up on you pretty quickly. Since fall clothing would be too warm and summer clothing would be too cool, it’s a matter of finding a nice medium. The following rules will help you to do just that.
Try lighter materials
Spring calls for leaving those bulky materials behind. Even though there will be some moderately cold days and some likely chilly nights, we still recommend changing the materials you are wearing once spring is on its way. This means your cable knit sweaters and heavyweight cotton shirts should find their place in the bottom drawer of your dresser and you should opt for something a little more breathable. Try investing in some unlined blazers, lighter weight denims, and lightweight cotton polos.
Wear brighter colors
We’ve found that many men are not huge fans of adding pops of color to their wardrobe. On the other hand, having a bit of color in an outfit doesn’t mean it has to be overwhelming. Whether you simply own one top that dawn a bright color, or you want to try something a bit more subtle like a print with hints of color, spring is all about new life emerging and your wardrobe should reflect that, even in a tiny way.
Don’t neglect layers just yet
Most people think that layers are reserved strictly for autumn weather, but we disagree. While the days may be warm, the nights are a different story and therefore the perfect opportunity to layer some of your favorite wardrobe staples.
Wear This, Not That
Transitioning your wardrobe to spring a simple test in practicality. In order to give you a better idea of how to move forward as the days begin to warm up, check out the guide below to find spring alternative looks to your winter fashion favorites.
Wear a breathable button up rather than a heavy flannel
It seems that every man has a flannel (or three) that he loves to sport all winter long. On the other hand, you might find yourself extremely uncomfortable if you continue to wear thick materials once it is warmer outdoors. Put those flannel shirts away for the season and invest in some breathable button-ups for spring.Try a shirt made from either linen or cotton and opt to purchase them in solid colors to begin with. You might want to try something like the Stone Rose Men’s White Flame Knit Long Sleeve Shirt or our Sky Blue Herringbone Knit.
Wear a fitted knit instead of a heavy wool sweater
Sure, a thick sweater has its time and place during winter, but when it comes to spring, a thick wool sweater is going to do one thing and one thing only: it’s going to make you sweat. Rather than walking around the city in your very own wetsuit, you might consider investing in some knit polos. We have a large collection in our online store and we know they are perfect for spring, because they are a Stone Rose staff favorite. Check out our Stone Rose Navy Flame Knit Long Sleeve Polo or for a touch of color, our Stone Rose Burgundy Speckle Knit Long Sleeve Polo.
Wear a short sleeve button up rather than your standard tee
While we won’t kid ourselves into thinking that you would never wear your favorite t-shirt ever again, there is something to be said for switching out a standard solid-colored tee for a short sleeved button up shirt. Not only do these shirts look nicer than that t-shirt you pulled out of the hamper, but they also give you an opportunity to layer your favorite pieces more stylishly. Currently, we are obsessed with our patterned short sleeve button ups like the Gray Polka Dot and the White Teardrop styles available in store right now!
