With the awakening of spring comes the opportunity to refresh and brighten up your style. We all know our homes get a thorough spring clean, so what not our wardrobes? Use the new season to clear out any tired, overused, outfits and add some new classics that put a pep in your step.
Everything starts to feel new and bright in spring and you should too. With the right pieces, your outfits can give you an energy boost and new confidence. Here is our guide to Irish spring styles for everyone for SS22.
Coasts For Warmer Seasons
As the warmer weather starts, we eagerly shed our heavy winter layers for lighter materials and brighter colours. Spring is a time to dress up for fun rather than wrap up against the elements.
An overcoat that works with casual and smart outfits is the best choice for a practical, long-lasting, spring outer layer. The men’s Sean Tweed Overcoat in Olive Herringbone is a full length tailored coat made from 100% wool tweed. This is an overcoat that looks as well over jeans and a sweater as it does a suit. With this outer layer, every outfit will have an instant dash of sophistication and style.
Spring outer layers can be fun and colourful too. Like the Emma, Tweed Herringbone Coat is made with a stunning combination of eye-catching colours. There isn’t a spring colour that isn’t represented and every handmade coat is so unique that no two are guaranteed to be the same.
Layer For The Changing Seasons
If there is one thing we can predict in Ireland it is the unpredictable weather. Spring can bring anything from late frosts to heatwaves and here we know to be ready for anything. How better to be ready for the changeable changing seasons than with clever and stylish layered outfits.
Having a layer that is versatile and easy to add or takeaway is an absolute must for spring styling. A wrap like the Lambswool Celtic Ruana Wrap from the Kerry Woollen Mills is ideal for spring layers. Lightweight, soft, warm and adaptable to many looks, the Celtic Ruana Wrap can also be worn as a chunky scarf, skirt or shawl. This wrap comes in a sunny lemon yellow perfect for spring.
Bring a slice of Ireland with you with the incredible Cashmere Skellig scarf in the shade Meadow Green mix. One visit to County Kerry and you will see just how the Skellig Islands inspired this incredibly soft scarf. At 9.5 inches wide and 60 inches long, this scarf is ideal for draping over the shoulders in a spring breeze.
For practical but fashionable layering, you can never go wrong with a bodywarmer (gilet). Designed to keep the core of the body warm while the arms remain free, bodywarmers are great for everyday life. Whether you work outdoors or are running between meetings, these are the perfect spring layer.
The Brian Irish Wool Tweed Bodywarmer has a front zip and four helpful pockets. This bodywarmer is softly quilted for extra warmth and features the ever-popular herringbone pattern.
If you like the look of a bodywarmer but want something a little snugger, you will love the Shackleton Tweed Jackets. These handwoven jackets have quilted tweed cores like a bodywarmer but with cable knit sleeves. Made by Celtic Tweed of Dublin, these unique jackets were inspired by Ireland’s famous explorer Ernest Shakleton.
Colourful Spring Looks
With spring comes spectacular rainbow displays as light seasonal rain showers and spring sunshine compete. Bring your style to life with a touch of rainbow inspiration from the Weavers of Ireland collection.
Branigan Weavers’ Kildare Herringbone Hooded Poncho is a multi-coloured delight. A wonderful hand-woven blend of light greens, yellows, reds and pinks. This is a fun and flattering outer layer that stays practical with a hood and pouch pocket.
You are guaranteed to find your favourite spring colour in our eclectic Tweed Newsboy Hat collection. Ireland’s finest weavers have handwoven our favourite hats just for you. The Mucros Weavers’ Ladies Tweed Newsboy Hat comes in lilac, red, rust orange, indigo blue or forest green. While Branigan Weavers’ Ladies Wool Peaky Blinders Hat comes in Donegal Red, Donegal Green or more muted greys.
Let’s not flat caps for spring. The flat cap is synonymous with Irish history, and it is enjoying a comeback at the moment, thanks to Peaky Blinders. The Mucros range includes a variety of colours and designs, and we love the trinity flat cap for simplicity and style.
Whatever your style this spring, remember you can’t go wrong with a dash of colour, clever layers and a tailored lightweight jacket.
