The only thing better than one batch of Office Apropos is two batches of Office Apropos, which is why I am honored to step in as the official hype woman for 10 more of my colleagues and their springtime ensembles. I find it both fitting and amusing that the participants in round one were treated to a week of blue skies and high heat, while the participants in round two were confronted mostly with gray clouds and damp sidewalks. Spring, man! It’s a fickle beast.

The sudden change is great news for you, though, if you happen to be in the market for style ideas involving any of the following: light layers, what the hell to wear with jeans, what the hell to wear with lightweight trousers, loafer-and-sock combinations (including knee socks), expressive sweatshirts, dresses with cowboy boots, trench coats, overalls and athleisure. It’s a transitional weather smorgasbord, ripe for the inspiring. Gobble it up in the below slideshow and meet this crew of rainy day patriots in the comment section for further discussion.
