Carhartt: Choosing the right workwear for spring

Carhartt: Choosing the right workwear for spring

Embrace the spring season with a fresh take on workwear. Discovering the perfect balance of comfort, colour and durability will get you ready for action as the weather warms up. 

Spring is the season of renewal and rejuvenation, so it’s the perfect time for builders to refresh their work wardrobe. The season’s unpredictable weather, with its tendency for sudden showers, calls for versatile work attire – think water-resistant jackets and moisture-wicking materials that can handle a spring drizzle without compromising comfort.  

Step straight into the season with Carhartt’s tough-as-nails work gear, now in a canvas of lighter, livelier hues that mirror spring’s vitality. Key colours for men include Apple Butter, Tender Green, Loden Frost and Fog Blue while women can blend resilience with style in the delicate Lilac Haze and strong Dried Clay. 

Perfect for active days or laid-back afternoons is the Relaxed Fit Midweight Short-Sleeve Pocket T-Shirt. With breathable mesh side panels, it keeps you cool while moisture-wicking technologies, complete with an antimicrobial finish, keep odours at bay. For a timeless touch, the iconic Carhartt Heavyweight Short-Sleeve K87 Pocket T-Shirt, a staple since 1992, now pops in fresh, spring hues of Loden Frost green, Apple Butter and Deep Lagoon blue. And the equally sturdy version for women offers a loose fit and comes in a range of colours including both Lilac Haze and Dried Clay, proving durability can be stylish too.  

Layering is always key, no matter the season. The Midweight Logo Sleeve Graphic Sweatshirt is a go-to layer for fluctuating temperatures and shifting activities. Whether you’re powering through a workday or unwinding, this sweatshirt adapts to your pace with a cosy, roomy fit that ensures freedom of movement. Make a statement with the striking signature logo emblazoned on the left sleeve it now also comes in Fog Blue and Apple Butter. 

For those who want a hoodie tailored specifically for women, the Logo Sleeve Graphic Sweatshirt is perfect for active days on site. Available in two key colours, Lilac Haze and Dried Clay and with the Carhartt ′C′ printed on the chest, this hoodie is made of a soft, warm, stretchy fabric and is jersey lined to keep you cosy all day long.  

Robust work trousers armour you against the demands of manual labour while keeping your tools at the ready. The best pairs won’t hold you back by feeling tight and restrictive but will let you bend, crawl, stretch and duck comfortably all day long. The men’s Relaxed Fit Low Rise 5-Pocket Tapered Jeans, although made from heavyweight stretch denim, are as comfortable as they are tough. They feature a low rise that sits comfortably below the waist and are finished with a tapered leg opening designed to fit neatly over boots. If you need a coverall, the Loose Fit Denim Bib Overall does the job – all with loads of pockets and a pre-washed, lived-in denim for comfort. Both incorporate Rugged Flex™ technology for ease of movement.  

Women have great options too. Slim Fit Tapered Jean is tailored for a comfortable fit that moves with you. These jeans feature have a mid-rise waist that sits just below the natural waistline. The Fitted Lightweight Utility Leggings available in black and tarmac, is both flexible and tough. The lightweight fabric not only wicks away sweat but also features an odour-resistant technology, ensuring a fresh feel throughout the day. They have a comfortable stretch waistband, durable ripstop utility pockets, a secure zipper pocket, and come in a stylish skinny fit. 

Of course, spring wouldn’t be spring without the showers so carrying a protective outer layer is more than sensible. The women’s Relaxed Fit Lightweight Insulated Vest, with its Cordura Fabric reinforced weave keeps you warm without the bulk while the Rain Defender water repellent finish keeps you dry. Carhartt has updated its lightweight packable anoraks. Tailored for both men and women these are ideal for shielding yourself from the unpredictable weather. Lined with breathable mesh and equipped with Rain Defender technology, you’ll stay comfortable and dry no matter what the weather. With a handy three-piece hood and zippered pockets, these anoraks are practical, portable and now come in fresh Tender Green for men and Lilac Haze for women. 

As the seasons shift, so should your work attire; spring is the perfect moment to refresh your ensemble with lighter, flexible and weather-adaptive pieces that keep pace with the dynamic rhythms of both work and weather.
