What Should I Wear?

Leave a comment

Spring is (essentially) here. So it’s time for you to break out the spring clothes, but you want to be fashionable and functional. There are many ways to do this and many styles that will guarantee that you are the most stylish person on campus or on the streets.

First, you want to pick the right jacket. April and spring, in general, can be a mixed bag. One day it’s fifty degrees and raining, another day it’s “Sunny and Seventy-Five”, to quote a country song, performed by Joe Nichols. Layering is important, even during the spring time, so a good, lightweight jacket, like a bomber or a classic denim is a good place to start for both men and women.

The dilemma of whether to wear shorts or pants is real. However, there is a hybrid called lightweight chinos that I think will be a great help to this dilemma. Chinos are great because they are versatile, you can dress them up or down. They go great with a polo or dress shirt or just a plain,white t-shirt.

What about shoes? Spring is so unpredictable, at times, and picking the right pair of shoes can be somewhat of a challenge. However, a good pair of canvas sneakers are a unisex choice. In addition, for men, a nice pair of driving loafers can go well with a pair of lightweight chinos.

Mother nature likes to torture us during the spring, but that doesn’t mean that we have to stress ourselves out every morning, attempting to figure out what to wear. With these style ideas, you can be warm and cool enough to tackle anything, but before I forget, there is one accessory that is essential for spring. I am talking about sunglasses. In my opinion, nothing makes a man or woman look cooler than a great pair of shades. It just adds that attractive, mystery element about a person.
