Spring Style in the Northeast: Mastering Layering for Fluctuating Temperatures

As the winter snow begins to melt, the northeastern states of the US welcome the arrival of spring, a season known for its unpredictable weather patterns. Spring weather in New England and Mid-Atlantic regions can be warm and sunny one day, and cold and rainy the next, making it a challenge to dress appropriately. However, with the right knowledge and preparation it's possible to dress for the spring weather and stay comfortable throughout the day.

Here at Cutter and Buck we’re proud to bring you apparel that lets you live without limits. From sustainable styles made from recycled materials to clothing designed to be your favorite with thoughtfully chosen fabrics for everywhere your day may take you.

In this blog post, we'll share some styling advice and tips on how to dress for the unpredictable spring weather and recommend Cutter and Buck clothing options that are versatile and can be worn in different weather conditions.


How to Layer Up for Spring

One key to dressing for the unpredictable spring weather is to layer up. Start with a base layer, like our Stretch Oxford Dress Shirt or our Virtue Eco Polo Shirt, and then add a mid-layer, such as our Saturday Crew Neck Sweatshirt or Adapt Eco Knit Hybrid Men’s Quarter Zip. If you’ve ever struggled with finding the right outfit for when it’s cold in the morning and warmer as the day goes by, this combo will help since you can easily remove layers.

Invest in Versatile Outerwear from Cutter and Buck

Punxsutawney Phil will tell you – spring in the northeast is notorious for its rain and wind, so investing in high quality outerwear is essential. A water resistant jacket with a hood and breathable material, like our Cutter & Buck Rainier PrimaLoft® Men’s Eco Insulated Full Zip Puffer Jacket, is a great option for days when it's raining or windy. The stowaway hood makes it easy to pack for outdoor adventures and work trips and it can also double as a windbreaker on breezier days.

Our Rainier jacket is great because it can be dressed up or down depending on the rest of your outfit. Outerwear from Cutter and Buck is made from high-quality materials, like water resistant nylon and our Primaloft® Silver Insulation, that are durable and long-lasting so you can wear our men’s and women’s jackets for multiple seasons and occasions, making it a smart investment in your wardrobe.


Choose Versatile Fabrics For Layers to Get the Most Out of Your Closet

Choosing versatile fabrics is another key to dressing for getting dressed during the spring months. Opt for lightweight, breathable fabrics such as cotton and polyester-spandex blends that can be easily layered and will keep you cool in warmer temperatures. We’ve created clothing featuring this fabric with you in mind and have made sure they are easy to dress up or down, so you can wear them for a variety of occasions.

A prime example of this is our Traverse Stretch Quarter Zip Pullover. Made of a polyester-spandex blend, this pullover feels like a double knit jersey while offering UPF 50+ UV Sun Protection on spring days when the sun is out. This moisture wicking quarter zip is a favorite of runners and hikers but also pairs perfectly with our dress shirts for big presentations at the office or over video calls.
