Spring is a time for new beginnings, and your wardrobe is a good place to start.
Put away those winter coats, bulky sweaters, and heavy wool pants and replace them with clothing made from lighter, easy-breathing fabrics like cotton.
Feel free to experiment with bright colors and patterns, but start with a neutral base. For example, if you intend to wear a bold paisley print shirt, pair it with some khaki shorts and white sneakers.
To help you get a headstart on building your spring wardrobe, we’ve selected 10 Spring Fashion Items Every Well-Dressed Man Needs.
Scroll through the list, and start updating your closet with these essential spring fashion items.
A polo shirt is a wardrobe staple. It is comfortable, cool, and easy to style. You can pair a polo shirt with shorts, jeans, or khakis. Try the Original Polo Shirt from Lacoste ($65.99)
A lightweight linen blazer can keep you warm when the temperature dips, but it is light enough to keep you cool on warmer days. Look for unstructured blazers made with a trim, modern fit. Linen blazers can add a dressy touch to a casual outfit. Try the Unstructured Italian Linen Blazer from Bonobos ($148).
Spring is a good time to update your eyeglasses prescription and get some new frames. Look for glasses with a frame design that compliments your face shape.

Fun Casual Shirt
Life is too short to wear boring shirts. Show your personality with a fun, colorful casual shirt. Today’s designers offer a wide variety of bright colors, designs, logos, and patterns. Floral prints are popular this season and one of our favorites is the Bonobos Jersey Riviera Shirt ($79)
When the weather gets warmer, many men like to bare their legs. Look for cotton or linen tailored shorts that stop just above the knee. Avoid ill-fitting, bulky cargo shorts that make you look like a frat boy and shorts that are so long that they look like capri pants. Try these Slim Ultimate Micro-Stripe Linen-Blend Shorts at Old Navy ($29.99).
Many people believe that a watch is an unnecessary accessory in this age of portable electronic devices. But a watch is more than just a device to tell time. It is a fashion statement that expresses your personality and shows that you care about the details. Try the Ancher Brown Leather Watch by Skagen ($145.00).
Spring showers are a real thing and you want to be prepared for the weather with a light, durable rain jacket. Try this Old Navy Water-Resistant Hooded Rain Jacket ($69.99)
