As if getting dressed for work in the morning wasn’t difficult enough, along comes spring — with its inconsistent temperatures and periodic rain — to make things even more complicated. Fortunately, we've put together a dapper selection of office-friendly looks to ensure you know what to wear to work regardless of the weather.
The Best Navy Flannel Suit for Work in Spring
In order to truly master spring office wear, the trick is to select an outfit that will a) keep you warm, b) keep you cool and c) feel comfortable. Hard work, right? To create a look that offers such contentment, try teaming our navy flannel suit with a checked shirt and leather shoes. The suit will ensure you don’t catch a cold, whilst a patterned shirt will more than hold its own if worn alone with your trousers. Raining outside? Invest in a sturdy and stylish umbrella to shelter you from the showers.
The Best Jumper for Work in Spring
If you work in a creative office where a jacket and shirt isn’t essential – great. But that doesn’t mean you should scoff at the business-casual dress code. In fact, we recommend giving yourself a professional edge by opting for some particularly crisp casual wear such as a V-neck jumper, button-down shirt, chinos and Chelsea boots.
The Best Linen Suit for Work in Spring
For those who ply their trade in a conservative corporate environment, chances are most of your male co-workers will arrive to work in a plain grey or navy suit. Nothing wrong with that, of course. But we suggest changing it up with tailoring of the linen variety. Ideal for warmer days, wear yours confidently with a white shirt, knitted tie and smart shoes.
The Best Herringbone Jacket for Work in Spring
Although it may be time to put your winter coat to the back of the wardrobe, you still need to have a replacement that is capable of fighting off the lingering chill. Cue the herringbone jacket. Offering warmth without too much bulk, it will pair perfectly with a casual shirt, chinos and brown brogues.
The Best Cardigan for Work in Spring
Albeit highly unlikely, there may come a spring morning when you wake up to glorious sunshine. To ensure you’re best-equipped for such a momentous occasion, team a short-sleeved shirt with slim-fitting chinos and leather Chelsea boots. Forgetting something? Find yourself a knitted cardigan for the inevitable nippy commute home.
