It’s true, we’re already counting the days until spring. And while it won’t make spring come any faster, there’s one thing you can do now to prepare for the season: It’s time to buy a lightweight spring suit. That’s right  buy it now while we’re in the depths of winter, and while the store still has your size. Pick up this one from Canali, the Beige Capri Slub Wool, Silk And Linen-Blend Suit and when you get it in, cut the tags off and start wearing it immediately. Just make sure to layer so you stay warm.

The idea here is to assemble a flexible and stylish look that adds all the warmth and weight to get you through until spring. The best part is that eventually spring will be here, and when it does, you’ll be ready to go. Here are three ideas on how to wear your spring suit now.

1. The simple sweater-suit set

This pairing will warm you up to the idea of wearing a spring suit in the winter. Trust us, this combo is a surefire winner. Pair the Canali suit with a Pique Solid Dress Shirt – Slim Fit in white and a Slim Italian Cashmere Crewneck Sweater in navy. Accessorize with a navy Geo Glow Pocket SquareWindsor Wool Socks, and Mcallister Wingtip Oxfords in Walnut Calf.

2. The winter vest look

You’ve probably never thought of wearing your thinner, warm winter vest closer to the chest. But we’re here to tell you that you should, and that it looks incredibly chic and manly. Start with your Canali suit, and pair with Brunello Cucinelli’s Burgundy Down Filled Quilted Vest. Next you’ll want this Thomas Pink Derick Plain Slim Fit Dress Shirt in Charcoal, The Tie Bar’s United Medallions in Burgundy,  and a pair of John Lobb’s City II Leather Oxford Shoes.

3. The chunky knit cardigan

For the days when it’s extra cold and only a chunky knit cardigan will do, this outfit is perfect. Again start with the Canali suit, and pair it with Burberry London’s Cowper Cashmere Cardigan in taupe brown and a Herringbone Solid Dress Shirt in khaki. Accessorize with John Lobb’s William Leather Monk-Strap Shoes and a Flicker Pocket Square.
