Spring Transition : Vancouver style

Vancouver##Q##s transition from Spring to summer is anything but predictable, especially this year. With May having broken records for low temperatures and rain fall one must know how to dress to survive and stay comfortable. Growing up with an outdoorsy family I was always told that layering was key to being prepared as well as comfortable. Vancouver is mild in this transition period so there a two ways to style your outfit to ensure you remain stylish, warm and dry.

 

For the cold sensitive types

So for those are always cold and always complaining about it well we will take care of you first so you don##Q##t complain to us here at the site. We have put together outfits for Men and Women to keep you warm in spring without dressing like your going skiing.

 

Mens and Womens – Cool day look

Assignment Fashion

Long Sleeve Shirt – The long sleeve T is is great choice for the cold sensitive in the group as it can be converted into a short sleeve shirt with 2 swift motions upwards of the wearers arms. A good cotton blend will allow you to breath and stores from ##Q##The GAP##Q## to ##Q##Winners##Q## carry a well made T-Shirt from $19.99 – 25.99.

 

Full length Khakis are a great utility piece in any wardrobe, as they can add a touch of formality to an outfit without the need of buying dress pants. One can still look casual and be comfortable and stay warm while waiting out the ##Q##Spring Transition##Q##.

 

For the more weather tolerant

 

For the people out there that are able to put up with the weather swings and aren##Q##t afraid or embrace a little cool weather then we have a few outfit ideas for a casual day out. It##Q##s about mixing and matching and dressing practical from the time you look out the window until you reach your destination.

 

Mens and Women##Q##s

Starting with a short sleeve shirt and full length Khakis one can remain looking dressy and still feel like they are dressed for Spring/Summer.  The next look would be to pair the shorts below with a long sleeve shirt like above or in button up form. By doing this one can keep cool yet maintain a certain warmth and protection without having to lug around a backpack of clothes.

 

 

 

The final piece of the puzzle

The final piece of the puzzle is what I mentioned at the start, “layering”. This requires my final piece of clothing, a nice light weight Nylon jacket. The key word is ##Q##Light weight##Q## so that you can take it off and carry it if its not needed and its not so heavy your sweating while your wearing it.

The other advantage of a Nylon Jacket is weather proofing. The jackets are not water proof but can offer some protection against the elements like the wind or a brief Spring shower.
