Hello! Hi. It’s springtime. (So says the calendar.) I’ve been coaxing things along with a little indoor and outdoor bulb planting, farmer’s market peach blossom hoarding, and ankle baring, regardless of outdoor temperatures that have remained stubbornly cool.
To celebrate the new season and in case you’re feeling inspired to do a little spring wardrobe refresh, I’m showing off a few new spring styles from Tradlands (and offering Reading My Tea Leaves readers a special discount).
This season, Tradlands is debuting fresh new tunics, complete with mandarin collars, short-sleeved blouses, and, coming soon, long-sleeved cotton henleys, all made right here in the USA. As ever, Tradlands is especially committed to making their clothes in facilities that are clean and safe and where workers get paid a living wage.
Tradlands introduced two new tunic-length shirts for spring. The JJ Tunic, above, is made from 100% linen. The tobacco-colored fabric shifts between grey and black and brown depending on the light. This updated tunic’s a bit longer than past versions and has a sophisticated mandarin collar.
In a pale gray-blue Tencel fabric, The Lockwood, above, is soft and silky.
Both tunics have deep side slits and a generous length that makes them just right for layering over jeans, or, yes, leggings.
Beyond buttons, Tradland’s new 100% linen short-sleeved blouses called The BCN were inspired by Barcelona; they’re a personal favorite of mine this season.
I like to think of it as a t-shirt made for dressing up in.
Perfect for the chilly early spring days, The Lisbon utility shirt provides a spring-weight layer for wearing all by itself or over another shirt for outdoor adventures.
Thick pearlized buttons are a Tradlands signature that make all of their button-up shirts especially lovely; the utility shirt boasts extra-big ones.
The Jessica Grey is one of Tradland’s best-selling button-ups. The heathered cotton/flax fabric is super soft, and pairs easily with just about anything.
It’s my favorite Tradland’s shirt for layering underneath jumpsuits and overalls.
If it’s a classic white poplin you’re after, you might look no further than The Charlie Organic.
The 100% organic cotton poplin is soft and lightweight, and the tailoring is crisp and clean.
