LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Stepping into Spring

Let's Hear it for the Boys

It’s time to rip off those parkas and boots; spring is finally here! After a crazy winter, we’ve finally earned many months of warm weather. We had it especially bad in Wisconsin with almost 40 days under 0 degrees. As it slowly transitions from freezing temperatures to a balmy Midwestern summer, it’s important to learn the art of layering. Contrary to past articles that discussed layering up for subzero temperatures; there’s a specific art to layering for spring. With slightly cool weather and a chance of ran almost every other day, dressing in the morning becomes more about strategy than about comfort.

This Fashionisto is wearing slim fit khaki pants, lace-up Nike shoes and a pink button-up under a gray sweater. He puts the finishing touch on his look by slicking back his hair. This look is pretty simple and not at all difficult to put together. It’s a classic, preppy look that can be worn to any business casual event or even the daily walk to class. His layers keep him warm for the climbing temperature, but also aren’t thick enough to make it an unbearable walk to class.

Another great idea for an outfit is something that’s of course waterproof. I’ve never been a fan of lugging around an umbrella, so I’d recommend obviously some sort of anorak or rain jacket. Pairing a light jacket with a cable knit sweater and fitted jeans is a perfect alternative to this Fashionisto’s outfit. There’s nothing worse than getting stuck in the rain during a long walk to class.

It’s time to jump into spring! Try to spice it up with light layers in a variety of colors. Winter is finally coming to and end, so let’s celebrate with a crazy new wardrobe.

Hint:  Go out and buy a bunch of colors and patterns. Let’s brighten up these next few spring months.
