Springtime is a time of blossoms, finally getting out to the barn to ride instead of just cleaning up or grooming, and layering! If you’re anything like us here at Noble Outfitters, we love springtime (minus the allergies!). The days are longer, but not too long, the sun-shines, but it’s not too hot, and you can almost taste summer. But because the sunlight stays out a little longer, doesn’t mean it’s as warm as the hot summer nights we’re waiting patiently for. Which means, if we’re planning on being out riding, grooming or putzing around in the barn until dusk, we’re definitely bringing our jacket.
Well let’s take advantage and make hay while the sun shines! Summer isn’t here quite yet, and there’s always room to work on your fitness, but most importantly, there’s time to layer. Meaning you can wear your favorite tank top with your pullover that fits perfectly under your favorite jacket.
Here’s our favorite ways to layer pieces from our collection:
Let’s start with your base layers. If you’re anything like us, a lot of movement gets us feeling warm and maybe even a little sweaty. Our opti-try technology is in every one of our shirts & tanks. This is a great addition to your wardrobe as a base layer so it can absorb and use it’s moisture wicking technology.
The Ashley Long Sleeve also makes a perfect layering piece. Pair it with your Balance Riding Tights & your Peddies and you’re good to go!
Next, let’s add your second layer—this layer is important if there’s a chill in the air, it’s light, but essential.
You can start with an easy zip-up like our Sierra Hoodie. The hood makes a great addition to this piece, especially since your head holds the majority of your warmth!
Or, if you’d rather grab your hat like Lauren below, include the Jose ¼ zip Mock as your second layer. It has the perfect collar to keep your neck warm, and thumbholes incase your hands are feeling chilly. Next, layer your Rollback Reversible vest over your 2nd layer. This vest is lightweight, stylish and bulk free.
Finally, until about mid May, you’re probably going to need a jacket when heading outside… at least in the morning. Whether you’re headed to the barn, school or work — if it’s raining grab your Pinnacle jacket. This performance driven piece is functional and fashionable. It’s fully seam-sealed and breathable for showing or out in town. Pair it under your Madison Show Shirt and with your Balance Riding Tights for the perfect showing outfit!
The Essential Jacket is designed for movement. Whether it be on or of your horse, the adjustable waist cinch also makes it super flattering, paired with the dropped back hem too.
The Women’s All-Around is your all-weather, all-season solution. It’s water and wind resistant providing the perfect amount of warmth for those chilly spring evenings. Heck! You might even need it through early summer.
