What to Wear in the Ups and Downs of February and March
Last week Philadelphia had its first glimpse of spring with a 67 degree day. People crowded the streets in short sleeves and sandals just to get some much needed vitamin D. At the end of the work day, I walked leisurely to the train station, perfectly content to wait for a later train if it meant catching a few more rays of glorious sunshine. I hoped that this marked the end of winter, but I was punished for my wishful thinking with snow the following Monday.
The weather confusion brought me to my topic for today: winter-spring wear. The highs and lows of February and March call for a parka one day and a cardigan the next. Help end-buyers and end-users figure out their wing/swinter wardrobe with the following suggestions.
A good pair of thick rubber boots can take you from winter slush to spring rain. You can pair them with thick socks when the weather gets frigid or bare leg it for warmer days. Logos can stand alone or in a pattern.
A long, thick sweater is a necessity for men and women during the tempestuous weather in February and March. On especially cold and windy days, the extra layer of thermal helps shield you from Mother Nature's wrath. On nicer days, you can shed your coat and just wear your sweater. Edwards Garment offers great V-neck cardigans in both men's and women's styles.
These wind- and water-resistant jackets are easy to pack and always worth having when an impromptu shower hits. Prime Line's Rain Slicker-In-A-Bag comes with a convenient carrying case so you can always have rain protection in your bag. Another great option is the Lady Savannah jacket from Dunbrooke, which cinches at the waist and has a detachable hood.
Always a steady favorite, hoodies have become trendy because of teen icon Justin Bieber. Sweatshirts like the American Apparel Adult California Fleece Zip Hood from Atlantic Coast Cotton are ideal outer garments for not-cold-but-not-yet-warm weather. With a vast amount of color and imprint options, these sweatshirts are a promotional must.
Good luck in the turbulent weather ahead. I hope the above suggestions help you and your clients navigate the snowy/pollinated/damp days of February and March.
