Spring is nearly here! It’s almost the time of year when we bid farewell to heavy coats and say hello to lighter layers. With warmer temperatures and sunny days approaching, we can finally look forward to comfortably resuming outdoor activities – what better way to do it than in style!
One of the best things about spring is that it always feels like a lively fresh start thanks to awakening nature, longer days, and fresh air. Some days might be cooler than others making suitable outerwear a must-have to transition into the new season no matter what you’ve got planned. Here are some refreshing ways to style Olsen spring jackets from our Soft Focus collection.
Taking in the great outdoors
It’s time to have some fun in nature as it emerges from hibernation, whether that means heading to cottage country, going for a nature hike or a simple walk by the lake. With its ability to transform into several ways to wear it, this versatile ‘4-in-1’ jacket in moss green offers flexibility for any outdoor activity you have planned. It is both windproof and waterproof, and its convertible pieces allow you to adjust for changing weather conditions throughout the day. At the start of a chilly morning, wear all the pieces layered together. Then once the sun warms up the temperature you can remove the outer shell to reveal a quilted jacket. If it gets even warmer, you can opt to remove the sleeves and wear it as a vest or wear the outer shell on its own as a windbreaker – it’s such a smart style and worth the investment! For a sporty-relaxed look, pair it with a placement print t-shirt and comfortable jersey knit drawstring pants. Hiking or combat boots and a baseball cap round out this outdoorsy look.
Brunching at an Outdoor Patio
There’s no better way to welcome spring than to enjoy a great brunch at an outdoor patio in good company. This daytime outing is a perfect time wear a sporty bomber-style jacket since it offers just enough insulation to ward off a daytime breeze without being too heavy and bulky as you reach across the table for your drink. Bonus – it’s eco-friendly since it contains Repreve®! Say you’re spring-ready by pairing it with a pretty floral shirt in happy shades of peri and blue! Classic jeans made of power stretch denim, sleek loafers and tasteful jewelry finish off this ideal outfit to enjoy mid-day mimosas in while catching up with friends.
Saturday at the Farmer’s Market
A great way to spend a spring morning is discovering new vendors and shopping at the local Farmer’s Market. For a leisurely stroll around the market as you restock on your produce for the week, go for a stylish but casual look. This hooded anorak serves up sporty laid-back appeal while still being polished just in case you run into someone you know! Pair it with power stretch pants in a similar neutral shade and add the perfect pop of print with a statement cotton blend tee. Don’t forget comfortable sneakers and a recyclable tote bag for carrying your delectables.
Spring is the perfect time for a road trip and for a long drive, comfort is key. We all love the ease of a good co-ord set and this scuba knit shacket and pant combo is truly a dynamic duo. The buttery soft and fluid fabric feels like a second skin on the body, making it the ideal choice for comfort during a long drive. Pull together a sporty and mostly monochrome look by adding a fresh cotton blend tee and eco-friendly quilted vest made with Repreve® – you’re sure to be the best dressed at all the fuel stops! The sleeveless design of this outerwear piece eliminates unneeded bulk and adds comfort while sitting in the car. Tie together this clean and polished look with your favourite pair of white sneakers and some sunglasses.
