We're ready to say goodbye for good to our puffy coats, wool blazers and anything with toggles. And, lucky for us, spring's crop of chic jackets and pretty coats don't disappoint!
We’re smitten with this updated biker jacket. All the details, from the colorblocked sleeves to the perforated pieces, feel fresh for spring.
Hole in One
Perforations look (and feel) so breezy. You’ll find the detailing in this season’s bags, shoes and jackets, like this pale pink piece from Target.
The ubiquitous biker jacket gets a “makeunder.” Pair it with pale denim, cool-toned florals or scarlet red for an of-the-moment outfit.
A sleek, collarless shape prevents this stunning floral print from looking fussy. Now, if only someone would invite us to a garden party…
H&M’s pared-down trench makes us feel a bit like a secret agent, even if we’re wearing it over yoga pants and a vintage tee.
Leave it to high street British brand Wallis to come up with an affordable, pitch-perfect trench. The Peter Pan collar, gunmetal buttons and bodycon seaming are all spot-on.
Escape to the Jungle
Chic and glamorous but still plenty cool, this jacquard coat solves the problem of what to wear in between winter’s wool coats and summer’s bare arms.
It can be hard tracking down work-appropriate clothes that still feel fun and seasonal. This little blazer from Dorothy Perkins is playful and polished—expect plenty of coworker compliments.
Chinoiserie meets liberty print in this stunning printed jacket that looks as good with brights and pastels as it does with neutrals.
This pale jacket blends biker styling with Guinevere-era detailing. And it’s a smart investment, since you’ll want to wear it next fall and winter, too.
Zara’s patchwork coat is heirloom-quality, thanks to the intricate piecing and crisp piping. (But we’re planning to get years of wear out of it before it gets passed down.)
Garden of Delights
Sure, this brocade coat is ready for the opera (or a formal wedding), but we also like it styled with skinny jeans (or, even better, leather leggings) and cute ankle boots.
