With April almost over and May on the horizon, the hope that former months “showers” will lead to the latter “flowers” is pretty high. It would be nice to see some colour and greenery around the city, instead of this perpetual sickly beige. It would also be nice to have a string of warm days all in a row, instead of a constantly yoyo-ing thermostat. This is how people get sick, you know. Luckily this isn’t our first spring, dang, it isn’t even are tenth, and we definitely know how to dress for it in Canada. The trick is a slight shift to lighter, brighter colours in the outfits, while still maintaining a certain level of warm and metaphorical coolness.
On this particularly bright and warm(ish) day, the outfit consisted of some “must have” spring staples, including a fresh pair of khaki coloured chinos, these from Vancouver-based The Daily Co. (head over to their site now to pre-order a pair, and enter to win a pair as well). A H&M denim button-up shirt with a light Aztec print across the chest. Over that the iconic Greenland No. 1 Special Edition jacket from Swedish brand Fjällräven, for that sleek minimal look. On the head, a pair of wooden sunglasses to avoid squinty face, made from recycled skateboard decks from Montreal based brand Go Wood, and an Odd Future ‘Taco’ snapback with baby blue and pink accents. Flip to the bottom, a fresh pair of bright Nike ‘Year of the Horse’ Lunar Force 1’s. The colourful sparkled soles do a good job tying the outfit together from top to bottom.
This is how we stay looking fresh in the ever-changing and unpredictable spring weather. Take a look at the full outfit below for your Spring outfit inspiration.
