When I think of spring, I think of fields of tulips and endless blue skies. Unfortunately in the Northwest, this spring dream has been difficult find. We’re starting to see more sun breaks, but we’ve already experienced double the amount of the average rainfall in March (almost 6 inches of rain). 

Brandon (my boyfriend) and Boone (our puppy in all my instagram stories) have teamed up with me to share 3 Tips to Transition into spring. This post is dedicated to all my guy friends out there who’ve been asking for a menswear post!

Style Tip #1: Rock the Khakis

A nice way to break away from your typical blue jeans are to wear a pair of khakis. Every guy needs a pair of khaki pants both at work and on the weekends. They elevate a look without going too formal. Khakis are also a great neutral. Brandon can pair this pair of khakis with a denim shirt, or a crew neck pull over sweater, or even a baseball t-shirt. 

Tip #2: Layer a Denim Shirt with a Thermal

Temperatures during the spring season ranges from lower 40s to mid 50s. Even if its sunny during the day, temperatures are sure to drop in the evenings. I recommend layering a white, grey, or black thermal underneath a denim or flannel shirt. This layering style is functional and also stylish.

Style Tip #3: Add a Wood Watch

One trend I’m loving this year for both men and women are wood watches. Though Brandon and I both have traditional silver and gold watches for work, we now both have wood watches. 

Brandon is sporting the Olive & Acacia watch from JORD. This timepiece is made of both velvet olive and deeply grained acacia wood. Its strong mechanical, silver face adds a sense of masculinity and luxury.

 I’m predicting that unique wood watches will be a standout accessory in 2017. Our JORD watches are incredibly well made and we can wear these watches both on the weekend and at work!
