Quilted Vest
Brooks Brothers
Sold by: Brooks Brothers

Fit Guide
While a big nylon puffer vest is for late fall and winter, a quilted cotton vest is an ideal 3-season accessory to carry us out of winter and through spring with style. For now, treat it like a sweater to layer over your button up shirt for a rugged finish. As it gets warmer, transition to using it as your outerwear. The blue cotton of this Brooks Brothers vest has just the right neutral denim look to it, so it goes with everything from your khaki’s to your jeans.

How To: Transition Spring Style Into Your Wardrobe Now

January can feel pretty bleak. The weather is far from pleasant in most of the country, the days are short, the holidays are behind us, and spring still feels pretty far away. Well, unless you are in a retail store. There, spring style is starting to show up in a big way. But what are we supposed to do with that, right? Well, this week we’re picking a few key “transitional” pieces and we’re showing how to wear them now, while the weather is cold, and later, when going outside will be a pleasure – not a chore.

Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see our top transitional picks for work, after 5, and casual dressing – as well as the coordinating pieces you need to make them for you now and later.

If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

A sweater, of course, is always a great transitional piece. The key is choosing the right weight and the right color. This contemporary fitting Theory sweater meets our criteria for both. The yarn is a light weight wool blended with a touch of stretch, so it will keep you warm now, over a long sleeve t-shirt or button down, yet won’t be too bulky to wear through spring – whether it’s for a cooler day indoors or an evening out. The muted camo pattern mixes shades of blues and greens that look great with dark colors now. And since it infuses so many shades of blue, it pops just as well against lighter denim, white and tan come spring.

This Hugo Boss mid-weight wool suit is the ideal “seasonless” suit. While a heavy, textured wool is best for the cold days of winter, and linen is meant for the hot days of summer, this virgin wool 2-button suit in a classic navy will work for every other day of the year. The narrow stripe is modern and easily coordinates with any tie – go with a deep color, like burgundy or gold, for the cooler weather and play with some cheerier colors, like red or pale blue once it’s warm.
