I love spring time! That means out with the dark and rusty and in with the colorful and vibrant! Here are the top ten affordable clothing items that stood out to me in Dover’s new spring catalog.
1. Ariat Sunstopper 1/4 Zip Print Shirt
Sun shirts are life in the spring and summer! They keep you cool, while protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. I have this same shirt in a solid navy and wear it all the time. I love the pop of the light blue color and the cute print on this new version! Coming in at $54.95, Ariat always fairly prices their sun shirts compared to competitor brands.
2. CoolBlast Sleeveless Shirt by Dover
Sometimes you just have to go sleeveless in the intense heat of the south. I love how this tank still keeps you looking professional, but provides fresh air and ventilation with CoolBlast technology. Priced at $49.00
3. Riding Sport Essential Polo Shirt by Dover
You can’t beat this price of $29.00 for a comfy and classic polo! Perfect for lessons or a casual hack. It comes in some gorgeous colors too including- Aster Purple, Chambray, Light Grey, and Navy.
4. Tredstep Symphony Paris Show Shirt
This show shirt is made of breathable material to keep you cool on those long hot show days. The mesh on the underside of the arms provides extra air flow. I love the little (hidden) pop of color you get on the inside of the collar and cuffs. In the hunter world, it’s nice to be able to express your style in a discreet way! This shirt comes in the blush color pictured above and also a sky blue. Priced at $59.95.
5. RJ Classics Devon Show Coat
This is my show coat! I love it because it is a quality brand, looks professional, and is completely affordable. I have it in the navy, but it is also available in black. Priced at $139.00, this is a deal you won’t regret! If anyone has any specific questions about this coat, I’d be happy to answer them. I have worn it at summer and winter shows.
6. Horseware Competition Coat
I don’t know about you guys, but I have been digging the show coat colors popping up that slightly veer away from the traditional navy and black. I’ve seen light grey, lighter blues, burgundy, and hunter green more recently at shows then ever before. I have been craving a burgundy or hunter green coat, and when I saw this one came in it, I was so excited! This coat goes for only $109.95 and is an extremely affordable option.
7. New Riding Sport By Dover Essential Breech
I have always worn the Riding Sport breeches, as I have found they are an affordable quality breech that will stand up to heavy use. They are comfortable and stretchy. Dover has redesigned them and I am loving the new logo! There is a cute little horse head on the top right hip. They have integrated EquiTru Rise technology that helps the breeches better form and stay formed to your body. They are offered in a variety of colors, including this bright strawberry that I may just have to try! $49.00
8. New Riding Sport by Dover Essential Full Seat
The same features as the Essential Breech, but with a full silicone seat. The full seat has even been redone in a bit by bit pattern. So unique! $59.00
9. Ariat Sunstopper Show Shirt
Another sun shirt by Ariat that I proudly own! This shirt comes only in the classic white and is perfect for hunters. I can honestly say it has helped to keep me cool under my show coat in hot weather. You can not go wrong with any of Ariat’s sun shirts! $49.95 is a steal for a quality sleeved show shirt.
10. Ovation Zocks
These boot socks are adorable! I love how they come in so many different creative patterns. They just released a few new patterns as well including flamingos and foxes! These remind me a lot of the Dreamers & Schemers socks, but for about half the price! $9.95 vs $17.99.
