Known for quality and durability, L.L. Bean makes classic apparel and outdoor equipment; some of their clothing pieces have become iconic in their own right (i.e. Bean Boots!), so there are lots of L.L. Bean classics perfect for spring.
For women, L.L. Bean makes a lightweight, washable linen shirt that is ideal for spring weather. It’s easy to dress up or down because of the button-front styling. Linen is a great fabric for spring clothing because it’s airy yet provides coverage when it’s cooler. L.L. Bean also makes a linen sweater tee, which is a lovely classic spring layer; it comes in different striped color palates.
In 2010, L.L. Bean launched their signature collection, which sells many classic L.L. Bean items. They are a bit more upscale but still affordable. One of the best bets for spring in this collection is the Seersucker striped dress. It’s made of pure cotton, is machine washable, and has a lightweight texture that is perfect for spring weather.
L.L. Bean also makes a lightweight blazer that is a great classic for spring. It’s one hundred percent cotton and has a tailored fit with a two-button style and lightly padded shoulders. It is easily paired with matching pants for a professional look, or can be dressed down with jeans and a tank top.
For menswear, L.L. Bean makes a traditional favorite, the twill blazer. Made of one hundred percent cotton, it’s both comfortable and stylish. It works beautifully when paired with jeans or the traditional twill pants, also classic L.L. Bean.
For a more casual menswear look, the madras plaid, short-sleeve shirt is another L.L. Bean classic for spring. This shirt is an all cotton button down and is available in bright plaid color palates.
L.L. Bean is a company whose longevity is proof of how classic their clothing is.
