How To: Wear Two Essential After 5 Favorites, Now & Later

Getting ready for a night out, this time of year, usually involves thinking about layers and ways to make sure our shoes and pants don’t get ruined by the slush and snow out there. Just thinking about the days ahead when we can just throw on a light jacket, brings a smile to our faces. Luckily, there are ways to actually start incorporating some new spring style into our wardrobes now. We've taken two of our top picks for After 5 spring wear, and we’re showing you two different ways to wear each of them – now, with seasonally appropriate items for the cold weather; and later, when it gets warmer. These pieces will see you through scotch by the fire and a dry martini in the sunshine.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Thursday) for key casual transitional pieces that will stylishly get you through many weekends to come. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

KEY Transitional Item #1. As we talked about in Clothes & Conversation this week, a neutral color, mid-weight suit is a necessity for your transitional wardrobe. Samuelsohn - a Canadian company making quality, hand-tailored clothing since 1923 - delivers with this wool/mohair blend. The charcoal grey works for any formal evening event – whether it’s business or pleasure. The mohair adds just the right weight and texture to the fabric to make it ideal for late winter and spring – it’s not too heavy at all. But it is a classic fit that is worth every penny, since you’ll get plenty of wear out of it throughout the year (for years).

Gitman - Regular Fit Mini Check Cotton English Spread Collar Dress Shirt
Wear Later Coordinating Item. As the days get longer and the weather warms, a patterned dress shirt still looks great with this suit, but make it one with a more substantial white ground – our pick is Gitman’s classic fit mini blue graph check. The shirt adds a spring look to the charcoal suit, yet remains utterly sophisticated to wear to any evening event.

Wear Later Coordinating Item. Continue to play with the brighter color palette and square design with this Italian silk foulard diamond pattern tie from Ralph Lauren. The bright green adds a pop of spring that is so sharp. Against the dark suit it is stylish and sophisticated, and definitely not too bold for the warmer months.

Vince - Long Sleeve Raglan Crewneck Sweater
KEY Transitional Item #2. For a night out that doesn’t require a suit, a dark sweater is a staple. This Vince black crew neck has a mélange knit (that’s the white nubby texture you see mixed in to the black) and sweatshirt seaming details that is rugged and stylish. The color is perfect for now and will nicely carry over to early spring. It’s a lighter weight so you can wear it as more of a base layer for now, and your key piece over a t-shirt or button down once the nights warm up. The stretch material creates a lean appearance, but it’s in Vince’s typical contemporary fit that looks great on most gents.

Wear Now Coordinating Item. A dark wash jean is the perfect finish to this outfit. AG’s Matchbox Slim fit is trim with a narrower straight leg that gives these pants an updated look without the appearance (or feel) of a skinny jean. The 11.5 oz denim has the perfect amount of stretch and is a more substantial weight for the late winter months.
