Jacket Style Tips
There are a variety of ways to incorporate a spring jacket into your wardrobe. Many can be worn with the sole purpose of adding an outer layer to protect you from elements such as wind and rain, while others are worn to add a touch of style to your outfit and to be the focal point of what you are wearing. Spring jackets do serve a function but they also are worn for fashion alone. A jacket is a great layering piece and can add a new look to an old outfit or if you choose a trendy jacket, can freshen up a tired look.
Some spring jacket options include:
- A cotton sport coat is a classic style jacket that is suitable for spring. They can be worn casually with a simple tee and a pair of jeans or dressed up with a pair of khakis, button down shirt and a tie. This type of jacket can take you from day to night with ease. Cotton sport coats come in a range of styles, colors and patterns.
- A trendier style jacket is the military jacket. They come in a range of materials such as leather, corduroy and heavy weight cotton. Colors such as green and tan are the most popular and work well for springtime.
- A track jacket is a must for cool days when you want to be outside. They work well for activities such as running, biking or hiking and look great with all of your active wear. Not only can they be worn in spring but many can be worn year-round. Track jackets can be found in materials such as nylon or fleece, and be either a zip-up style or a pullover.
- A basic jean jacket is a staple for many men. They are perfect for spring and can give any outfit an edge. Try one in a lighter denim and pair it with anything from jeans to khakis. One tip to keep in mind is to never wear the same color denim for your jacket and jeans.
Men can find spring jackets at their favorite department stores and men's shops in the spring and summer months, and online throughout the year. Some sites online that have a selection of men's spring jackets that can be found anytime of the year include L.L. Bean, J. Crew and Eddie Bauer.
