It’s that tricky time of year where coats and jackets are too heavy and don’t seem super necessary, so you feel like a thicker sweater can get the job done. However, the mornings are usually a bit colder, while the afternoon temperatures warm up quite rapidly. So as expected, layering is a key concept to constructing comfortable class ready outfits this season.

This Fashionisto knows just how to battle the cool mornings and warm afternoons in style with a chunky knit cardigan layered over a traditional white T-shirt, and just in case he gets too warm, he can easily remove the sweater without affecting the outfit as a whole. Although it’s technically spring, some people might not be ready to switch out their darker colors for pastels yet, and that’s perfectly fine. But opting for a navy on navy combination instead of our favorite all-black everything ensemble does just the trick.

Sometimes people are a bit apprehensive when mixing navy with dark-washed denim, but this Fashionisto makes the task seemingly effortless. The key to making this work this season is by breaking up the dark colors with complementary neutrals, such as white, gray and brown. Along with the white T-shirt, this Fashionisto sports a spring staple for every wardrobe—a classic pair of Sperry Top-Siders in this neutral brown shade.

One Simple Change: Going to hang out later? Swap out the T-shirt for a V-neck to make this simple daytime look into one that’s ready to take on the night.
