Spring is finally here, and that means your massive winter jacket can get tucked away in storage. Embrace the warm weather with these stylish spring coats.
Jean jackets are back with a vengeance. This relaxed, easy style may have gotten a little over the top in the ’90s but they’re here in a stylish new way this spring. Styles that are cropped short — so, somewhere between the waist and the upper hip — are your best options because they don’t look too heavy. You will also want to go for a more fitted cut, rather than the boxy shapes we’ve seen in decades passed. You can give them some of your own casual flair by rolling up the sleeves or picking ones with vintage buttons. The real trick to pulling off a denim jacket lies in how you pair it. Always aim to wear it with pants other than jeans as too much of the same fabric can look overwhelming. Pair your denim jacket with a cute shirt and khakis or leggings for an effortless spring look.
Oversized or boxy
With the warm weather on its way in, you’re finally going to be able to show off those arms and legs that have been trapped under woolly fabric for months. And that reveal can be even more dramatic when kept under the wraps of an unfitted coat. So, don’t be afraid to go for a retro boxy shape or relaxed, oversized look.
Colours and patterns
Spring has a tendency to favour colour in every item of clothing, and coats are no exception. Magentas, neon oranges, pastel yellows and nautical blues will be extremely popular in outerwear. Even bright designs and patterns will be gracing coats everywhere. Why walk around in the dreary blacks and browns you’ve been wearing all winter when you can stand out from the crowd each and every day?
These days, everyone knows the importance of physical activity, and we are all trying to work that exercise into our already busy lives. Fashion is embracing this lifestyle by coming up with sporty coats that are both stylish and practical. Relaxed anoraks and brightly coloured windbreakers are hitting runways everywhere. If you want to get this style without constantly appearing as though you’re on your way back from the gym, simply pair your sporty jacket with a nice pair of heels and your favourite purse.
No matter what the season, you can never go wrong with a classic trench coat. They’re fitted, stylish, sexy and incredibly versatile. Whether above-knee or cropped to the hip, they add a professional appeal to any outfit. To celebrate spring’s arrival, consider opting for a striking white trench or even one in a soft pastel. Picking the right coat can have you welcoming the season in style!
