What you wear outside of work is what we like to call your “off-duty” style—outfits that are great for running Saturday errands, or meeting friends for lunch. And for the in-between weather of spring, it’s even better when these clothes can adjust to anything from showers to sunshine. Here are five essential spring weekend wear items:
- Colorful chinos
- Patterned button-downs
- Short-sleeve henleys
- Weather-resistant jackets
- Fresh sneakers
How to layer
Short-sleeve henleys layer so well under long-sleeve button-downs. And if there’s rain? Slip a water-resistant jacket over the whole shebang.
How to match
Here’s a simple guideline: Choose a secondary color from a print and repeat it with your solid layering piece. It ties the outfit together without being too matchy-matchy.
How to make a statement
Microprints are a good place to start. But if you’ve graduated past small patterns, ask for something bold, or maybe even a bit abstract.
