How to Style Barbour for Spring

Since 1894, Barbour has produced stylish, durable, heritage outerwear that stays true to its roots in the British countryside. While the company has evolved over time (learn more here) their designs remain a British staple and have found success across the pond in North America. This spring, Barbour has come through once again with fashion forward styles that will keep you looking fresh when the rain falls and the wind blows.

After scrolling through Pinterest, we found some great Barbour outfit inspo for spring. Keep reading to learn how we would style three of our favourite Barbour silhouettes; with these key styles, you can’t go wrong with your outerwear this season!

Who doesn’t love a yellow rain jacket? This spring’s new Katabatic Jacket blends the looks of two Barbour icons – the Durham and the Beadnell – to create a longer-length women’s waterproof jacket with unbeatable functionality and unquestionable style. It features a detachable hood, a snap button storm placket and an adjustable drawstring waist!

Add a nautical striped top, ripped denim, chic sunnies and a fresh white sneaker, and you’ll be ready for all of the weather changes coming at you this season.

The Wax Jacket

Did you see our post on the history of the wax jacket last fall? This Barbour classic has stood the test of time and will have no problem handling finicky spring weather. The Beadnell for women and the Beaufort for men are suitable for all climates and their relaxed fit will look good whilst being active outdoors. It is also able to accommodate both zip in liner and hood, which is perfect for spring layering.

We love the idea of mixing hard and soft – a structured wax jacket with sturdy rain boots are picture perfect with a flowy spring dress. For men, use your wax jacket to dress up a simple t-shirt, jeans and sneakers!

The Quilted Jacket

If anyone knows how to make a quilted jacket, it’s Barbour. A brand new addition this spring is the Holton Bomber – considering how much we love bomber jackets this season, this new style is very exciting. The Holton channels classic bomber styling with a shorter length, a stand collar and ribs to the hem and cuff. Barbour’s iconic Dress Tartan trims the lining.

We’re feeling so inspired by photos of stylish men rocking their quilted jackets. This spring, try the Holton Bomber with a classic polo, lighter wash jeans and a fashletic sneaker for a sporty yet preppy look.
