How to Layer Clothes for Spring
Trunk Club

Are you ready for spring? Because it’s coming. Maybe not as quickly as we’d like, but that’s why we’re sharing some insights to make the wardrobe transition from winter to spring super simple and easy. Short answer? Layers. Long answer? Keep on reading.

Pick a pop

If you need a quick lesson on layering clothes for spring, we got you. When pulling together an outfit, sticking to shades of the same color is a simple way to create a cohesive look. Take this grey-on-grey-on-grey-on-white outfit. It’s a great example of playing with shades without feeling too matchy-matchy. But if adding another grey layer seems like overkill, a bomber or coaches jacket in a rich color—like dark teal—takes a simple outfit and makes it much more interesting.

Athletic-inspired

Logos and athletic streetwear are everywhere right now. Not only are expected brands like Nike and Adidas playing in the arena, more fashion-focused names like Billy Reid and Rag & Bone are getting in on the athleisure action, too. To complement your logo piece, our recommendation is to keep things simple, but turn it up a little. Black denim feels a bit more edgy than blue, and leather sneakers round out the entire look as more than just something you’d wear to the gym.

Classic with a twist

It’s nearly spring, so you should feel confident about pulling out a pair of light denim. It’s a modern take on a classic item, just like this faded black denim jacket. And we’re saying it here first: It’s okay to wear denim-on-denim. In fact, we encourage it! Alongside a layer and a fresh pair of sneakers, it’s one of our favorite almost-spring outfits. It even works for a casual office. But you know your workplace, so whether you toss on a button-down or hoodie underneath is at your discretion.
