Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to put away your heavy coats and prep for warmer weather. This season is all about making the transition from chilly mornings to warm afternoons easier, so you’re not caught sweating or shivering. And the best way to do that is to choose lighter fabrics, layers, and, of course, some seasonal trends and colors that bring life to your wardrobe.
Here are the 12 essentials you need to perfect your spring style:
Shirts & Polos
Nautical Striped Shirts
Lightweight, long-sleeved, striped shirts are a great way to make the transition from winter to spring.
Short Sleeve Button-Downs
Put away the plaids and flannels, and break out a short-sleeved, casual button-down shirt on warmer days.
Choose a whimsical print for a fun, spring look like this shark pattern from Bonobos.
Or go a little more classic with a blue, textured print that works all day.
The Perfect Polo
A nice polo shirt is super versatile for dressing up or dressing down. Wear it to work, to the beach, or even under your favorite sweater.
Get sophisticated with a white polo from Rhone at Fourpost.
Or try one of UNTUCKit’s many colors of wrinkle-free polos.
Sweaters & Such
Pack up your chunky, thick sweaters from winter and pull on some sweats or light knits for spring.
Go bold with a block-striped sweater from Topman.
Or more subtle and classy with Trunk Club’s assortment of knits and cardigans.
A Spring Jacket or Blazer
Utility jackets are hot this spring and now that coat season is officially over, Kenneth Cole has the perfect style.

Cool, classy, and breathable, chinos are always in for spring. Try this one from ethical fashion brand, Everlane.
When you’re not in the mood for chinos casual, choose lightweight cotton trousers during the warmer months.

Minimalist white sneakers are a classy touch for any outfit. This Italian sneaker from Yatay is ethically made with eco-friendly materials.
Or channel your inner New York style with Brooklyn-based brand, Greats.
Oxfords should be your go-to for those times you want to get a little dressed up. Put some spring in your step with these styles from East Dane.
