You may have noticed crocuses and daffodils popping up all over patches of grass somewhere near you. Our mornings and evenings are getting lighter and the nip in the air is starting to fade. Spring has sprung.
With spring though, come the April showers and the unpredictable weather. What is important to remember is the perfect trans-seasonal coat to see you through the tempestuous days of spring.
Look to us for our selection of the five best coats for spring.
1. The Floral Jacket
Welcome the warmer weather and the flowers of the season with an equally picturesque print coat. The floral print coat will update your dark colour combinations instantly. There’s no need to buy an entire new wardrobe this spring to update your look, simply invest in a brightly coloured coat.
A hot tip when opting for a patterned coat is to keep the outfit underneath simple. The idea is to wear the coat open and to let your outfit offset the colours and patterns in your coat. Opt for a black skinny jean and a t-shirt or a simple black dress.
2. The Tweed Jacket
A tweed jacket makes a chic statement. It’s light cover-up option for a day with plenty of sun but still a little chill in the air. Make like Chanel on a crisp Parisian day and wear your tweed cropped jacket with a cigarette pant and a pretty blouse.
Accessorise this look with a string of pearls and a comfortable ballet shoe and don’t forget the over-sized sunnies for a real sense of Parisian chic.
3. The Oversized Blazer
An oversized blazer allows for greater coverage and lends itself well to a skinny jeans, t-shirt and trainers combination. It’s the kind of casual feel that an off-duty model might go for. Wear it to work to smarten up your spring look, or on a casual weekend walk in the park.
4. The Lightweight Rain Mac
Be prepared for the inevitable downpours with a lightweight rain mac. It’s the classic springtime go-to that makes a staple. British summer time is not the most reliable, so the chances are, your mac will see you through the summer seasons and into Autumn.
Go for a stylish button-up or belted option in a dark tone so that you can match your outerwear up with most of your outfit combinations.
5. The Camo Jacket
90s Grunge is still very much on-trend this season, so go for a lightweight camouflage jacket to complete the look. The camo jacket makes a regular comeback each season as the parka jacket’s summer alternative.
Wear with a boyfriend jean, a casual t-shirt and slip-on trainers to complete the 90s feel or make the look a little more girly by opting to wear over a black maxi dress or casual black skater dress.
