Spring Dressing – What To Wear Outside?

Spring Dressing – What To Wear Outside?

A spring walk can be one of the most refreshing and reinvigorating experiences. It may be a calm day with the sun’s rays cutting through the mist or a lively one with a fresh breeze and moody skies. And of course, there is always the threat of rain…

It's a tricky time of year to navigate when it comes to outdoor clothes (not least when there's a sudden downpour thrown into the mix). The cosy winter coat just looks too much whilst the spring jacket is perhaps a touch too flimsy. The ideas below are sure to help:

For Men or women, a puffer is the perfect spring jacket. Lightweight but warm and able to be condensed down in to almost nothing, this has to be the ultimate jacket for right now. We love the Scarlet Reset Narbonne puffer but opt for Foliage Green if you feel less bold.

The Schoffel Hallaton for men comes in Navy or Pine green is ticks all the boxes – water repellent, ethically insulated, breathableand extraordinarily lightweight to boot. 

The layering staple that has gathered huge momentum among fashionistas  and everyone else over the past few years is the gilet. Long is perfect for March when the mercury yo-yos whilst short is handy as summer temperatures hopefully stabilise.  We are not suggesting you need both but whether you go for padded, down, floral or plain, this lifesaver is a key piece of outdoor clothing for both men and women.

This Brora gilet from Schoffel for men has the added benefit of being water repellent.

For those days with grey skies and a mixed forecast, grab a water-resistant coat. The options of waterproof outdoor coats for women are huge.  We love a neat look – functional doesn’t need to be at the expense of style! Look out for breathable fabrics, taped seams for guaranteed dryness and a detachable hood.

it would be remiss to ignore a Wax jacket when considering outdoor clothes for men. Once the essential kit of the country gentleman, the trusty waxed coat can now be found in the most urban of environments too. Wearable all year round, this waterproof coat can cope with layers in the winter and be perfect as it is in spring.

So, grab your coat of choice and head outdoors!
