#OOTD: How to Layer a T-Shirt This Spring

We talked in our last #OOTD about how to wear a sweater for spring, and it’s high time we took that same approach again, is it not? Well, not the exact same approach, but with a similar focus on spring layering. That’s why we’re here with a new #OOTD, and it’s all about how to layer a T-shirt for spring, because it’s not all fun and games out there. Spring weather can be breezy and blustery and downright unpredictable, which is why pieces like a spring overshirt or the best spring trucker jacket are going to be so valuable. It’s much the same with finding the best T-shirt for spring, one that’s well-made and durable enough to stand up on its own while also looking great when layered up accordingly. Of course, you’ll find all the supporting gear you need and more, from your new favorite spring jacket to the best affordable watch for men to the best men’s jeans for versatility and classic looks all the way.

After all, a guy has to make the right move when it comes to dressing for weather that can go any which way, and when the pursuits of spring are so varied as well (from weekend strolls to outdoor beers to days working from home), your gear has to pass muster, too. And with all that being said, here’s the #OOTD to help you get the job done, whatever that job might be this time out.
