5 Ways to Lighten Up for Spring!


Lighten up your look for Spring.

With the hour going forward and easter on the horizon we find ourselves in spring and our wardrobe should follow! Like nature, its time to bring out the colour in our look, adding splashes here and there to lighten up your look.


1. Suits / Jackets

If possible getting your suits and jackets half-lined would be an amazing plus. With spring underway and summer coming soon, wearing a fully lined suit can be warm. With half-lining, it does not close off the entire inside of your jacket, the heat will not stay trapped inside while also making the jacket lighter.

2. Shirts

Shirting in spring is mostly about the weight of the shit, its time to keep your oxford and twill shirts in the wardrobe and opt for the more lightweight and airy cottens. You cannot go wrong with a crisp white or blue shirt in spring, keeping it simple and easy to accessorise.

3. Ties

Ties are the main focal point in a spring look, go as bright as you dare while adding contrast to your shirt and if you are wearing one your pocket square (or circle!).

5. Accessories

Adding accessories like Pocket squares and tie pins can link an outfit together, while keeping it simple and elegant. A tip would be to contrast between your tie and pocket square in different colours to add diversity to your look!
