Spring Street Style: Gearing up for warmer days

“It is all about the layers. I just layer, layer, layer. I don’t dress for winter very well, this is literally my winter coat. Even when my ankles are cold, I’d rather look spring-y,” Parkin said.

Her winter clothing pieces lean more towards spring style. She is all about T-shirts and pants. “I don’t really own sweaters,” she added.

“I just took off some layers. Usually I wear three layers, so pretty much my middle layer [during the winter] is my outer layer now,” Puzon said.

His scarf is his favourite spring clothing item.

“I dress for how I feel rather than the temperature. Sometimes I don’t necessarily make the right decisions of clothing in terms of the temperature. It is probably too hot to wear this jacket right now,” Lang said.

She likes to wear her motorcycle jacket, which is a perfect jacket for the spring weather and goes with everything.

He dresses lighter for the temperature. Levin-Gold does not dedicate specific clothing pieces to specific seasons, except his jacket.

“I am wearing a maroon Fred Perry jacket. I like brands and I like to wear brands,” he said.

“How I transitioned [from winter to spring clothes] was I use the same type of turtleneck as my structure and then I added fluorescent patterns and more bright colours to it,” Drakes said.

She also reuses her clothes, sometimes cutting long sleeves to make items more appropriate for the spring weather.

“I like to wear very light clothing. Now, I am wearing a thermal, because it is pretty cold, and a light jacket,” Cheema said.

Canadian weather often confuses him because it is sunny and at the same time very windy outside, so he likes to wear long sleeves to stay warm.
