Even when the weather turns warm, layering is still a great way to handle fluctuating weather. Strip down, pile it back on – you’re ready for anything! The layers may get thinner and you can lose the jacket, but the cardigan/plaid shirt/t-shirt combo is an easy choice – and it’s one of my go-to looks. (see another of this “uniform” here, from Camo Week)
This plaid shirt is refreshing because the colors aren't what I typically wear - there's minimal blue, with mostly red, orange and yellows. I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but it's a pretty big departure for me - it's hard to break me of my blue habit, but I'm trying!
One layer that’s easy for guys to lose in warm weather is socks. It feels oddly freeing to go sockless - a liberation from the knit tube of color that we usually wear. But do be wary when foregoing socks - your shoes must be comfortable. Shoes that are comfy with socks aren't necessarily as comfy without socks, especially if you’re running around all day or doing a significant amount of walking. A test drive when you’re only wearing them for a short time is wise - and loafer socks (and/or shoe pads) are never a bad idea. And throw a pair of regular socks in your bag just in case (I have a neutral pair in my car just for that reason).
