From where we’re sitting, there are still a few random piles of snow on the ground, but we’re confident that spring will eventually make an appearance. I don’t know about you, but we are SO ready to pack up the puffers and the long wool coats and opt for something lighter. This time of year the temps and the weather are unpredictable, so it's nice to have a variety of coats and jackets from which to choose. Here is a round-up of our top five spring jacket styles:
The Denim Jacket. While this is definitely the most casual option on the list (maybe save it for a casual Friday) it’s such a classic, we had to include it. It's versatile and easy to wear. The traditional silhouette will never go out of style, but if you want a more modern look, invest in a trendy oversized style.
- The Raincoat. We all know April showers bring May flowers...so there’s no reason to be unprepared. A cute raincoat will make all the difference on those gray rainy mornings. Have fun with colors and prints, or keep it classic. If you’re looking for a trendier update, clear raincoats were all over the spring/summer runways. We love this look because you get to show off your fabulous outfit too!
- The Trench. Speaking of runways, the trench made several appearances at the shows. Again, you can’t go wrong with a classic version, but there are some fun modern styles as well. In 2018, you’ll see fringe, corset details, exaggerated sleeves and extra length. For a conservative office, a classic trench is a smart investment. Wear it over your favorite sheath dress or pant suit.
- The Bomber. The bomber jacket is still going strong. This spring opt for one in satin or silk and choose a pretty pastel or versatile olive green.
- The Leather Jacket. After a few months of wearing our black leather jackets, they’re starting to feel a bit stale (but don't worry, we'll crave them again come fall!). Our shopping list definitely includes a chic moto style in a pale blue, blush, light gray or white. This is the perfect topper for a flowy summer dress or printed skirt.
