Spring Outfit Ideas from the Barbour Spring/Summer collection
The perfect season for getting out and about and back to nature, Barbour’s latest spring collections contain all of the key seasonal pieces you need to feel both comfortable and stylish this spring.
What kind of clothes do you wear in spring?
Although we can expect milder temperatures overall, spring can be a bit unpredictable when it comes to weather, making it one of the harder seasons to dress for. With chilly mornings and evenings, but warmer afternoons and of course the famous April showers, it’s important to be prepared for whatever the season may bring, especially if you’re planning on getting out into the outdoors.
Layering is not only practical, but on trend and offers an easy way to switch up your look with minimal effort. Plus, this style of outfit allows you to add or remove layers as needed which is ideal for unpredictable weather. A light jacket is always recommended, and we love natural prints and colour palettes this time of year, too.
Spring outfits for women
A pop of pastel
Spring is the perfect time to bring out all of those beautiful pastel pieces. The Epsom Gilet in Dandelion adds a pop of sunshine yellow whilst providing just the right amount of warmth on milder days. Layer over a sweatshirt for the perfect transitional look, which looks super stylish when paired with straight leg jeans and loafers.
Smarten up the classic jeans and a jumper look by wearing a floral shirt underneath. The collar peeking out adds a splash of print that brings a fun element to the outfit. The Bowland Shirt features delicate ruffle detailing for added texture and interest. A pretty pastel jumper with a floral shirt makes for a truly spring-ready outfit, and looks super cool with light coloured jeans and a belt. This look works for a range of occasions, from casual lunches to work meetings.
There’s no better time to embrace a floral print than spring. A floral midi dress strikes the perfect balance between classy and cute, and opting for a belted style creates a flattering silhouette. Pair with loafers for a smart but relaxed fit, perfect for lunch with friends or a day at the office.
A jumpsuit is a wardrobe staple as they're comfortable and very versatile. Our favourite pick from the new Coastal collection, the Barrier Jumpsuit is a must for spring as it combines a gorgeous colour palette with flattering tie waist detail and a classic check print. The wide leg trouser and soft fabric makes for easy movement, meaning this jumpsuit is a dream to wear. Style with a t-shirt underneath and trainers for the perfect everyday spring outfit.
Spring outfits for men
Overshirts, also referred to as shackets, are very fashionable right now and should be added to every man’s wardrobe this spring. Perfect for in-between weather, an overshirt strikes the perfect balance between smart and casual. The Rydale Overshirt features large twin chest pockets and comes in Olive and Sandstone colourways for a classic-yet-contemporary military feel. Wear over a plain t-shirt and chinos for effortless styling.
A wxed jacaket is a real versatile staple, offering protection from lighter showers without bulky padding thanks to a lightweight cotton fabric. Wear over a tartan shirt with a classic white t-shirt showing under an open collar and a pair of chinos on bottom to replicate the iconic Barbour style.
Spring is the perfect season to head out in the evenings, so a smart casual shirt is a must. Make the most out of the milder weather with a short sleeve style, and nothing says spring like pastel blue. Pair with navy chinos and a pair of chelsea boots for a sophisticated look that works for a meal out, casual drinks or even daytime events that call for a slightly smarter ensemble. This is a great base look that can be paired with a number of different jackets, from blazers to bomber styles.
The spring/summer Mariner collection contains a range of nautical style pieces that are perfect if you’re looking for a fresh take on spring style. A striped sweater and chinos make for a smart and sophisticated look that flatters all body types. We love this look with a blue jacket, like the Essential Casual Jacket, for a pop of colour that really makes the striped pattern stand out.
