11 jackets that will be perfect for when spring decides to arrive

It might not be spring just yet but it’s time to start thinking about spring jackets. Here are 11 of the best you can buy right now 


Yes, we know it isn’t spring.

The weather is still frightful and the fire still delightful, but we can’t help our minds wandering to warmer days. Spring clothing comes in two stages. The first is the weird transitional period where the weather moves between mild and freezing. Then comes actual spring in all its glory, when you really do begin to start peeling off the layers.

This mix means spring dressing is actually quite complicated. However, never fear because team IMAGE is here to help you in this perplexing world of fashion.

Spring jacket

A spring jacket isn’t spoken of enough. The winter coat takes all the glory and while completely necessary, its successor is just as vital to a woman’s wardrobe. Because the weather won’t be able to get a hold of its mood swings during the coming months, you need a jacket that can brave the elements. We need a jacket light enough for layering with knits but still thick enough to insulate our bodies. We want a jacket that won’t cause us to sweat profusely but simultaneously will protect us from pneumonia.

So what type of jacket do you choose?

Well, a leather jacket is always a safe option. Stick to classic black or try a camel version for something a little different. The Topshop Boutique biker jacket may be a little pricey but is certainly worth the investment. As is the Ganni oversized patchwork denim jacket – ideal for the fashion fiends who love pieces with character.

Belted jackets are the most flattering jacket style to buy right now. The cinch at the waist will streamline any outfit and add a point of difference. We love the green tweed beauty from & Other Stories.

And finally, a good puffer coat will never do you wrong. Kitri’s leopard print version is stylish yet practical.

Now let us keep praying to the weather gods for a reprieve from our current weather situation.
