It’s only February, but we are in the mood for spring already. Sometimes on days like today, Vancouver humours us and plays along. Though it may not be warm enough to get away with no jacket and bare legs for long, there are lots of spring pieces you can wear right now to tide you over till the weather turns.

Here are our top choices for spring:


Nothing makes it feel warm out like being able to rock a giant pair of sunglasses! Don’t leave home without these if the sun is shinning.

Platform Oxfords

Since it’s not nearly warm enough for sandals at this point, a good oxford is the perfect option. The platform makes it practical for the Vancouver rain, and this shoe is so on trend for 2017.


Though you can never go wrong with this classic, sailor stripes scream of a fresh spring look. Less obvious than florals yet still a great print to spice up your look.

Leather Moto Vest

Sleeveless jackets have been all over the past few seasons, and they are a perfect transition piece. They are just made for layering! Right now you could throw one on over a warm turtleneck or other cozy sweater, then to toughen up dresses like this or crop tops once it warms up.
What are your favourite pieces during this change of seasons?
