Spring is here. Time to upgrade your wardrobe.

This season, we recommend picking up a linen-cotton suit, a weekend bomber jacket, a "new" going out shirt, and grown up shorts.

We've put together a list of our favorite items from Frank & Oak.

Tack on a light colored tie, stylish shades, and a professional briefcase to complete the look. 

(A) Laurier Glen Check cotton linen suit jacket, $185; (B) Laurier Glen Check trousers, $105; (C) cotton chambray tie, $36; (D) Illesteva Hundson sunglasses, $220; (E)genuine Italian leather messenger bag, $245.

Pair it with some high-top sneakers, sunglasses with colored lenses, and a navy weekend bag. 

(A) Kingston bomber jacket, $125; (B) Illesteva Hundson sunglasses, $220, (C) Dylan denim in dark blue, $75; (D) Nylon travel duffel, $125; (E) Apollo leather high top sneakers, $155.

That being said, we're all for a new version of a going out shirt — a solid, navy or charcoal button down that works for everything from date night to beers with bros.

(A) Cotton snap button shirt in navy, $65; (B) Leather bill fold wallet, $56; (C) Newport chinos, $55; (D) Perforated leather sneakers, $145; (E) Illesteva Leonard sunglasses, $178.

As soon as temperatures rise, everyone busts out shorts. But just because your knees are showing, doesn't mean you have to look young or sloppy.

Pair the shorts with a white button down and knit pullover. Let the buttondown stick out from under the pullover to add a casual feel.

(A) Funnel neck knit pullover in Deep Well, $55; (B) 7.5" Travis Oxford shorts in Alloy, $55; (C) Odessa chambray shirt in off-white, $45; (D) Perforated leather sneakers in navy, $145; (E) Super People sunglasses in beige stone, $150.
