How To: Create Fresh Work Looks to Wear Now & Into Spring

As winter drags on, we can all use a little pick me up. And since we spend so much time at the office, starting with our work wardrobe seems like a perfect choice. Work clothes can be more expensive than some other categories of clothing so we have a couple of key pieces that you’ll be able to start wearing now – and continue wearing well in to the warmer months, with just a few changes to the other pieces of your outfit. That’s an investment worth making.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Wednesday) for our transitional picks for After 5, and Thursday for those casual transitional favorites that you’ll wear for months to come. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

KEY Transitional Item #1. Let’s start with a versatile sport coat – the perfect transitional work piece. Peter Millar’s blue check is made of that ever important "seasonless" wool. That just means that the weight of the fabric isn’t too heavy or too light, so you can get use out of it throughout the year. The shades of varying blue are perfect to pair with darker colors while we are still making our way through the end of winter, and lighter colors once spring finally arrives. And since it’s from Peter Millar, his classic fit will look great on most gents and be worn for many years to come.

Ledbury - The Blue Cullen Brushed Oxford Shirt
Wear Now Coordinating Item. Ground this sport coat in a classic blue brushed oxford shirt from Ledbury. The soft spread collar looks good with or without a tie, and the color gives a little lift to the jacket that is completely ‘wear now’. Available in classic or slim fits, there’s one for everyone.

Wear Now Coordinating Item. Since, we’re sad to say, it’s still cold in most of the country, layer this high quality Peter Millar Italian merino wool vest between the Ledbury shirt and the sport coat. The shirt accents the lighter blues of the jacket, while this classic fitting navy vest sweater brings out the darker shades. Besides the obvious function it provides, it punches up the outfit with some layered style that looks dapper with anything from wool dress pants to dark jeans or khaki’s.

Wear Later Coordinating Item. As the weather warms, wear the Peter Millar sport coat with a crisp white oxford cloth shirt, instead. The bold contrast really highlights the lighter colors in the sport coat. And, once it gets warmer out, we sometimes like to play with the more casual feel this shirt offers. It looks great with wool dress pants, but also works with jeans – both of which are very office appropriate with the tailored jacket. (In case you’re wondering why we think it’s casual – the button down collar and pocket give it a sportier finish.)

Wear Later Coordinating Item. Once the warm weather strikes, it’s hard to know what dress pants are appropriate. These Hugo Boss flat fronts are ideal for the comfortable weight of their wool that works for those warmer months. And the charcoal grey is not only a good match to this sport coat, but are endlessly versatile with almost any sport coat and shirt. They are cut in Hugo Boss’ classic fit so they look great on most gents and will be a staple in your closet for years.

KEY Transitional Item #2. Another confusing fabric, as we transition seasons, can be cashmere. The truth is, lightweight cashmere sweaters are just as great for spring as they are in the colder months. Lighter colors play up the airier weight, vs. their heavy gauge counterparts, and gives them a professional finish so you can forgo a sport coat, if your office environment permits. Everlane’s contemporary fit and light grey color helps transform a classic cashmere v-neck to an easy spring look.

Wear Now Coordinating Item. Complete the outfit with these micro checked wool dress pants from Hugo Boss, in a perfect ‘wear now’ weight to wear through the end of winter. The medium grey works so well with the cashmere sweater and shirt. The fit is contemporary, so you’ll have a consistent trim (but not at all skinny) silhouette to the entire outfit.

Wear Later Coordinating Item. As we mentioned with the last outfit, a white shirt provides a crisp finish that can turn pieces, like this cashmere sweater, into a spring must-have. This shirt from John Varvatos USA has a modified spread collar that lays beautifully under the v-neck of the sweater. To keep it dressier, you can even add a spring colored tie, which helps solidify this as a work-ready outfit.
