March is over! That means it’s *really* Spring. A surprise snowstorm in late March is annoying but not completely unexpected, but April is pretty consistently 50° to 70°, with rain, blue skies or a little bit of both. With that kind of forecast, versatile layers are a key component for any wardrobe.

Enter, the work shirt. Designed for manual labor, workwear is made of a thicker material, meant to be more durable than that of your average button up. It’s weight makes it a versatile layer for the change of season.

A work shirt is the perfect over-or-under layer for erratic spring weather.
