4 Essentials To Update Your Spring Wardrobe | Rodd & Gunn

Refresh Your Wardrobe For Spring

24th September 2020
Tackle Spring and seasonal dressing head on with this Rodd & Gunn guide to refreshing your spring wardrobe.

When heading into yet another seasonal shift, it’s a great opportunity to take stock of what you currently have in your wardrobe and strategize about what you’re wanting to wear next. At the very least it’s time to be out with the old (for now) and in with the new, placing your heavy knits and winter coats into storage to make room for light jackets and trans-seasonal layering options. A spring cleaning of clothes, if you will.

To help you along, we’ve put together a selection of the top five items you need to have in your wardrobe this season. These men’s spring wardrobe essentials will have you prepared for any event (and every weather) right through to summer.




The ultimate staple for Spring dressing is The Gunn Polo. Why? Because it is versatile enough to be dressed up or dressed down for any occasion. Here’s a few scenarios and styling tips to prove our point:

Heading to work? Pair with a soft tailored jacket to add a little covered-up cohesiveness.
Heading to dinner? Throw on some Cromwell Straight Jeans to keep things casual yet sophisticated.

Spring is a famously awkward season to dress for as the weather is so temperamental, which is why a versatile not-too-hot-not-too-cold jacket will become your trusty sidekick during this period. We highly recommend our Rodd & Gunn Kennedy Bay Soft Tailored Jacket due to it’s perfect blend of cotton and linen to keep you warm enough when you need it without ever getting too hot under the collar. It also slots in perfectly for an occasion that doesn’t quite call for a tailored jacket, but one where you want to still make a sophisticated and strong first impression.

Plus, another benefit opting for a lightweight jacket means you won’t be bitter about carrying it around if you take it off.

While Summer is obviously polarised by linen trousers, you’ll be seeking a heftier fabric in the Spring months so a chino with a cotton stretch is ideal to keep you comfortable all day long while not letting you freeze when the temperature drops at night.

A pair of the Forsyth Slim Pants in the Pebble hue can be easily dressed up with a button-up shirt for an evening look, after wearing the chinos during the day with simple t-shirt or polo.

A button up shirt is perhaps the easiest way to inject some colour into your Spring work clothes essentials, so store away your dark winter hues and make room for the Pollock Sports Fit Shirt in the striking Claret shade. The beauty of button-up shirts like these is that they look just as good with a jacket as they do with the sleeves rolled-up and the top buttons left open, and if you’re looking for a third way to style them during Spring then simply place a plain t-shirt underneath and leave the shirt unbuttoned for an easy, effortless look.

Also, don’t be afraid to stock up on more than one or two so that you’re covered for the entire of the Spring season. And while you’re at it, have a play with some patterns as the button-up shirt is the perfect avenue to host some stylish and fashion-forward prints just like the one found on this Blind River Shirt.
