#OOTD: How to Dress in Versatile Style for Early Spring

Early spring is a time to break out all those spring style essentials you kept stored away during the chilly winter months, from lightweight, stylish everyday pants to other classics that play well with steadily warming (but occasionally rainy or breezy weather) — and that’s where today’s #OOTD rises to the top. If you’ve checked your calendar, you know it’s St. Patrick’s Day, and although you might be spending it at home given all that’s going on out there these days, the goal with today’s look is the ultimate in versatility. It all starts with the new Western Rise Diversion Pants, which blend comfort and style easily. They work for a day at the office (you’ll note the Taylor Stitch short-sleeve shirt below) to a day of kicking back, cold beer in hand (hence, the comfortable Proof Elements Jacket and classic spring sneakers). Of course, if you’ve got to get out and about on a rainy day, then this look also works just fine — check out the tough rubber-strap watch and some of the the toughest EDC gear, for starters. If things warm up unexpectedly, you can ditch the jacket and rock the band-collar shirt on its own (more on that in a second). We’re all about easygoing-yet-polished seasonal style, and this look checks all the right boxes — plus, it’s hard to knock the fact that the weather finally allows you to wear your favorite sneakers again, ehh?

Durable, versatile pants and comfortable classics pave the way for your next spring #OOTD.

The proper blend of comfort and flexibility starts from the ground up here with the Western Rise Diversion Pants, namely. With a DWR finish and plenty of pockets for your everyday carry (like the Bellroy Minimalist EDC Set), they’re perfectly ready for spring style and plenty of adventures. The polished-yet-cool nature of this outfit is taken up a notch with a stylish short-sleeve shirt, one that you can even wear to the office. And for your commute to the office, you’ll find no better, tougher jacket than the Proof Elements Jacket — it’s dependable, it’s easy to wear for travel (when we’re able to travel again, that is to say), and it pairs quite nicely with the North 89 No-1 Sneakers for crisp-yet-casual seasonal style. It’s the blend of a unique band-collar shirt, combined with travel-ready pants from Western Rise, that gives this look a sense of day-to-night style (when you can get back outside, that is). Be sure to pair up those trousers with a stylish leather belt, too. Of course, accessories also elevate this look, and a tough rubber-strap watch keeps things from getting too stuffy. Taking care of your mug doesn’t stop now that it’s spring, either, so make sure one of the best face cleansers for men is part of your daily routine. All of your bases are covered when it comes to versatile spring style, that much is true. To see how I’m dressing for the season, be sure to head to my Instagram.
