AS we enter the month of March, temperatures are getting a bit warmer everywhere. If you need more stylish options for temperate destinations, Mr P. by Mr. Porter has some great choices for you.
Just when you think it’s time to stash your warm clothes for lighter fabrics, a realisation hits — that you don’t own choices that are the “in-between”. That means, you’re stuck with either light spring clothes or thick woolly jackets — it sounds a tad bit of an overkill.
Lucky for you: Here are 5 essentials versatile enough to layer on existing winter clothes, yet easily adaptable for the upcoming spring season, from the seventh capsule collection of Mr P.
1. The polo/chino combo
Some of our favourites include the striped knitted polo shirt and cotton-twill chinos. These make a perfect combination for transitioning between winter and spring. They keep you toasty, yet it isn’t as thick as conventional winter wear. This way, there’s no need to worry about over-layering.
Perhaps it’s the stripes, but this outfit is also giving us a “Where’s Waldo” vibe that we aren’t mad about (though the model’s glasses really complete the look).
2. An oversized cardigan
To brace yourself for the extra chilly nights, snuggle into this oversized wool and cashmere-blend cardigan. Available in red and blue, this is for those who want an outerwear that feels amazing, like wearing a blankie on the go. You can even repurpose it as loungewear; looking at how comfy this looks, we won’t judge you for that.
3. A swanky suede number
Progressing from biting winters to a delightful spring doesn’t have to be an awkward transition. On a night out, go with this slim-fit suede jacket. Even better, pair it with a turtle neck like so, and it becomes the perfect “I don’t try that hard” look; heads are bound to turn when you step into the bar.

4. Wardrobe for work
Mr P. focuses on future classics, designed to be sharp as it is wearable, stylish as it is timeless. For the working professional, this is no exception.
We like how the selvedge cotton-chambray shirt and the cotton-twill suit trousers get-up here serves an understated look. Couple this with the tri-colour striped knitted silk tie to celebrate the coming of spring. What better way to show up to work than in a Hogwarts-inspired smart casual outfit? (#teamgryffindorthough)
5. Convertible footwear
No outfit is ever complete without a spring in your step. With this pair of leather loafers that can be converted into slip-ons, Mr P. is offering much-needed versatility. Depending on the temperature and occasion, you have the option to dress up or down; this pair is essentially a handy two-in-one.
