The ever-shifting demands of seasonal style call for gear that passes muster, and that’s perhaps no more critical than when it comes to the layer that’s closest to your skin. We’re talking, of course, about equipping yourself with a lightweight shirt for a new season (in this case, spring). Go with versatile lightweight shirting that will have you ready for anything. Our favorite selections this season encompass tough-yet-lightweight overshirts, flannels, and a standout denim shirt. Your seasonal wardrobe upgrade starts now.
Lisboa Porto Shirt
There are certainly still spring days that are chilly enough to require a flannel shirt, but not a burly one, mind you. A lightweight one, like the handsome and refined Lisboa Porto Shirt, can go a long way toward elevating your look, especially when worn with casual dark denim and wingtip boots).
Outerknown Rambler Shirt
When it comes to shopping around for a great lightweight shirt for spring, the key lies in not going too lightweight in your fabric selection, but not too heavy, either — after all, showers and blustery winds abound. In that case, the sustainable midweight organic cotton twill of the rugged new Rambler Shirt from Outerknown fits the bill nicely.
Flint and Tinder Chamois Overshirt
Yet again, we’re singing the praises of another unique lightweight shirting pick for spring; in this case, a durable overshirt made from surprisingly soft chamois is the right choice if the day is breezy and rainy. The rich plaid pattern makes this stylish overshirt a fitting pairing atop everything from a classic Oxford to a white tee to a rugged henley, so it’s anything but overly heavy or hard to wear.
Taylor Stitch California Shirt
The good folks at Taylor Stitch keep churning out classics that fit extremely well, wear in (not out), and work in a variety of spring style situations, season after season. You can wear this rugged-yet-cool indigo shirt with slim tan chinos or dark denim in equal measure.
Billy Reid Denim Shirt
If ever you’ve shopped Billy Reid, you know the all-American designer makes gear that’s as good as it gets — and that includes your new favorite lightweight shirt, a pleasingly durable denim shirt to wear to your favorite brewery or whiskey bar (and beyond).
