APRIL 2013 MENSWEAR ESSENTIALS

Take a cue from the our friends across the Atlantic, who know a thing or two about battling the wind and rain. Keep a few things handy by the front door so you never miss a step while walking to the office. A well fitted, lightweight trench coat is mandatory come April. Beware the over sized, long robe-like trench that comes in questionable colors. This version from the Spaniards at Zara, the world’s largest retailer, is perfect. Cut a bit shorter, it layers comfortably over your sport jacket, while still looking streamlined. It’s the ideal color – a minimal, light tan. Avoid anything that looks remotely olive. Add color with your accessories, like this bright orange, double layered umbrella with classic wood handle. And finally, a caramel colored, classic briefcase is a refreshing, spring-appropriate update from traditional black. 100% Cotton, Lightweight Trench Coat, $189, available at Zara. Double Layer Orange Umbrella, $195, available at Club Monaco. Tan Classic Briefcase, $89, available at Zara.

Briefcase too stuffy? Try this equally sharp bag from Zara, $80
