The best spring jackets to invest in now

The best spring jackets to invest in now

It’s getting to that tricky point of the season when suddenly our winter coats feel heavy and dark, but it’s too chilly in the mornings to throw them off just yet. Don’t fret, warmer days are coming, and you’ll soon be on the hunt for a spring jacket that will take you through until summer (although that certainly feels a long way off).

We’ve done all the leg work for you, so you can start planning your spring wardrobe now. If you’re feeling particularly brave – and want to wear yours straight away- pair it with a chunky knit underneath for now- just don’t blame us if you’re freezing at the bus stop.

Lightweight cotton jacket; €39.99 at hm.com

This short, utilitarian jacket is light and easy to throw on for weekends. It would look great with jeans and a jumper for spring, but will take you right into summer paired with a dress, bare legs and sandals.

ASOS Design Waterfall Duster Coat; €69.13 at asos.com

If you aren’t quite ready to ditch the black just yet, you can still opt for a lighter jacket. A duster coat is a classic piece that will look great now layered over jumper dresses and knitwear, but is also a failsafe for summer evenings as an elegant option over dresses and skirts.

What screams spring more than a punchy shade of yellow? A colorful blazer is a great way to inject some spring into your wardrobe, even if you are still wearing a turtleneck underneath.

Organic Cotton Trench Coat; €150 at cosstores.com

A modern take on a classic trench coat, this option from COS is super-sleek. We love the hidden buttons and clean collar, keeping it minimal and expensive looking. A classic for a reason, a trench looks great for work and equally as good with jeans and trainers at weekends.

Hooded Parka; €190 at arket.com

This khaki jacket from Arket will work with your darker colours now, and khaki pairs well with soft pinks and greys for spring. It’s also worth having a hood, as April showers are definitely not a myth.

ASOS Design Contrast Stitch Cotton Jacket; €52.54 at asos.com

A denim jacket is essential for summer, and we love this white one from ASOS Design. The length makes it perfect for chillier days, and layered with a light coloured knit and black jeans would be monochrome perfection. The oversized, boxy cut is also a modern update on a much loved wardrobe classic.
