Did you know that the first flowers that typically bloom in spring are lilacs, dandelions, tulips, daffodils, and iris'? Spring is the absolute perfect time to wear something floral. The bright cheery colors & patterns will put you in the Spring state of mind, even if you are in the rainy periods.
And what better way to spend a little bit of that tax return than on a floral dress or a Hawaiian shirt? Florals are one thing in fashion that never goes out of style so it's always a good investment to purchase something floral. Year after year you can dress up or down a floral piece with a jean jacket, or linen pants.
If you're tired of blouses or dresses, opt for a nice pop in your closet like a pair of floral flats or floral capris! Printed sneakers and mules are huge for Spring 2019, and add that something-something to any outfit.
The Perfect Hat
In the Victorian era, if you weren't wearing a hat, you were of seemingly low class. In fact, hats have been around since the beginning of time. And when it comes to hats, the possibilities are endless.
Investing in a new hat for spring is an excellent way to both spruce up your wardrobe AND have added protection against the sun's rays. From caps to straw hats to sun hats, there is a vast selection that is always in fashion.

A White T-Shirt
A crisp white t-shirt should be a staple in every man, woman, and child's spring closet. White tees can be worn with almost anything from being paired with jeans to under a dress to under a button up or a sweater. A classic crew neck is always a good move, but also consider a trendier and neck elongating v-neck style.
Opt for a modern look and soft cotton that lasts. Or buy in bulk and save some money. Spring is a time to wear color and to experiment with bright pants or new statement jewelry. A white t-shirt is a fashionable way to allow those bits of color to pop while staying comfortable.
A Jean Jacket
You can never have too many jean jackets, seriously. They are as American as apple pie. And if you don't have any at all, then now is the time! From black to dark denim to distressed denim to a cropped jacket, a jean jacket is one of the most important wardrobe staples that a man, or woman, can own.
A jean jacket is perfect for transferring over from a warm spring day to a cool spring night. They can be dressed up or dressed down for almost any occasion. And, they can be worn with almost anything.
Jean jackets go back over 200 years, and they aren't going anywhere anytime soon. They have and always will remain a fashionable choice for your wardrobe checklist. Don’t be turned off thinking a denim jacket is a western style. Jean Jackets are making a big comeback on top of floral spring slip dresses, or bedazzled with your name. Many Brides are opting to patch on their new last name to the back of a jacket, for a fun and multi-use, Bachelorette party item.
Guys can wear this style by rolling up the sleeves a bit and opting for a more oversized fit. This will give you the cool and casual look of Levi Strauss, who created the style in the US in 1880. This style was originally intended to be work apparel, but like all fashion, has appealed to a broader audience over time.
Embroidered Pants And Shorts
Many holidays are right around the corner. From St. Patrick's Day to Labor Day and from Memorial Day to the 4th of July, a pair of embroidered pants will be the talk of any backyard BBQ! They add flair to your outfit and personality to your pants, can act as a great conversation starter.
Check out the vast selection that we offer so that you can make your spring statement count today. Our Harbor Flag Pant Flag Panel pair is the perfect thing to wear to a 4th of July BBQ.
You could roll them up and pair them with some boat shoes and a white tee. Or you could opt for a classic white collared shirt and a pair of loafers to take you and your celebration into the night.
A Crossbody Bag
Spring is full of life and excitement. It's full of days where you might start off at a BBQ and end up watching the sunset on the beach.
For those days of adventuring and nights of dancing under the stars, you want to make sure that you keep your belongings safely in tow. Furthermore, you don't want to be stuck with a bag that stops you from having fun.
A crossbody bag is a perfect addition to anyone's wardrobe. You can keep your essentials safe but feel free as it loops around your body without you having to think about it.
A New Bathing Suit
With spring here, summer is just around the corner! Nothing will give you confidence like a new bathing suit for the first day on the beach. Swimwear is the place to go wild in your wardrobe. Pick a bold pattern or fun embroidery, and strut your stuff! Check out our new spring options for men.
One of the great things about bathing suits is that you can wear them day after day, without judgment. While you might not want to wear the same dress or the same pants every single day, it's perfectly acceptable to do so with your bathing suit. May we suggest topping it off with a snazzy SPF Sun Shirt. These are all the rage right now, and for good reason! Protect your skin, so you can make the most of the long summer days on the water, or at the beach. Some even match back to your swim trunks!
