The snow is finally melting, the bitter cold seems to be disappearing and Mother Nature starts to tease us with sunshine in hopes that spring will soon be here. March can be an awkward time for style. Do you put away your winter wardrobe and wait to splurge on gear for hot summer days? That’s a risk that could make you look (and feel) awkward for the months in between. Here are a few must haves to get you through this transitional time.

Coast Apparel Flannels

 

Coast Apparel knows warm weather is around the corner, and their selection of beachy tees and shorts will have you drooling for summer fun, but in the meantime they have your back. March and April are all about layers and their selection of flannel shirts will keep you warm and comfortable during the mild season. We are a fan of the Waterfront Flannel Button Down. 100% cotton and ridiculously soft, it’s the perfect go-to shirt to wear on days that don’t require a jacket. Coast Apparel, $72.50 

Polished by Dr. Lancer Skincare

March can to tough on skin. Before April showers come, winter leaves us with a mess of dust and dirt that can be hard on your complexion. The Deluxe Travel Kit from Polished by Dr. Lancer offers all the essentials you’ll need to get your skin clean, soft and prepped for summer. Included is a daily scrub, dual cleaner & shave lotion, sunscreen and lip balm. Protecting your skin isn’t just a summer routine, and Polished can help you get on back on track. Polished by Dr. Lancer, $48 

34 Heritage Denim

One of the best companies to fall on our fashion radar is 34 Heritage. They’ve created a one-stop shop that meets the denim and pants needs of any gentleman, from the business professional looking for a classic pair to the everyday guy looking to step up his denim game. They go beyond typical denim and offer an impressive selection of chinos and twills in a variety of fits and colors. Go for the Courage Grey Winter Twill. Don’t let the word “winter” fool you, these lightweight pants are perfect for year-round wear, the color is the perfect blend of grey and could possibly be one of the most comfortable pants you’ll ever own. Pair them with a white button down for a meeting, then roll them up and hit the beach. 34 Heritage, $185 

Ridge Merino Baselayers

The cabin fever of winter is gone and you’re ready to hit the outdoors. Unfortunately, it’s too early to ditch your shirt or throw on that tank, yet you don’t want to hit the hills in a bulky coat. Mother Nature can be cruel. Ridge Merino offers the perfect layering solution with their 100% Merino wool baselayers. We are fans of the Inversion Midweight Crew, which not only feels amazing against your skin but is also designed to keep you warm and dry. Ridge Merino, $64.95 

Buck’s Burley Hair Styling Cream

Winter hibernation is almost at an end. You’re getting ready to crawl from your cave and begin planning warm weather adventures. In addition, it might be time to consider trimming off your winter coat on the top of your head. Our advice, clean it up but don’t go full on summer buzz. Enjoy a little length and explore some of the great styling products out there. One of the best we’ve discovered comes from a rad little company out of Utah called Buck’s Burley. You won’t find anything out there better than their Styling Cream. This little gem in a jar gives you volume and hold, while not making your hair look greasy. We like how it cuts down on the frizz and keeps a strong hold for the entire day. Buck’s Burley, $25
