GQ editors on the 13 essential items they’re shopping for spring
Spring is just around the corner and the word on the street (aka from the BoM, aka the Bureau, aka the Bureau of Meteorology) is that it’s going to be the start of a long, hot end to the year. Let’s be real, there is no way we could be mad about that. After three years of rain, it’s time to embrace some warmer weather and spring is the start of that. Of course, it’s never going to be 30 degrees from September 1, but the warm weather does give us way more options when it comes to lighter-weight fabrics, integrating shorts and t-shirts back in, and repping a bit more colour.
It also means there are a whole lot more trends to be abreast of that have trickled down from the warmer months in the Northern Hemisphere. Shorts are bigger than ever, sunglasses are smaller, and soccer and all the style that goes with it isn’t going anywhere. With all of that in mind, we pulled together all the most stylish editors from the GQ office to see what is on their wishlists and give you a cheat sheet on how to be the best-dressed person out there this spring.
“It’s that time of year again—the time for a new pair of sunglasses. I’m loving these ones from Raie Eyewear for the sleek, frameless edges and their sporty-luxe vibe.” —Nina Miyashita, content editor
