Spring jackets – what to wear this spring
Everybody seems to be excited about spring and despite all of this the weather has not been so good to us. I walk pass flowering trees in my winter coat in gloomy London and in my mind I am wearing my best spring outfit and grabbing takeaway coffee.
Well even if the weather is not giving us what we want we can still think about spring looks and what to wear. I don’t how about you but spring is one of the seasons when I love to refresh my wardrobe as London can be strange. You sometimes end up wearing your spring jacket in the summer so for us Londoners it is clever to splurge little bit on these pieces.
So what to wear this spring?
Oversized blazers and wool blazers
Oversized blazers are not going anywhere. Think YSL or Isabel Marant and million other desingers and brands that incorporated this trend to their collection. One brand I love that does this so well is Marcela London. Frankie shop is another winner and to be honest if you look at their outerwear you will see pretty much all the spring jackets I am talking about in this article. And let’s face it a good wool blazer is an investment for life.
Trench coats – Play with fabrics
This classic will hopefully never come out of fashion. A classic trench should be part of your capsule wardrobe however brands are bringing exciting cuts, fabrics and shapes. I love what the aboved mentioned Frankie shop is doing and so many fabulous brands. If you give me oversized leather or faux leather trench I will be a happy lady.
I love a good bomber jacket. I am dreaming of a YSL one but adore brands like Allsaints, Anine Bing, Frankie shop, Sezane amongst the more affordable. Of course high-street players like Zara or H&M are not behind. As a matter of fact I ordered this H&M one that is exclusive online and it looks like a dream. It also comes in black and looks so much more expensive than it is. And to be honest even both my kids have a bomber jacket so spring we are ready for you.
Cropped jackets – Play with fabrics
I love cropped jackets at the moment and you can see here why. It looks so cool and chic and just perfect for those spring days when it is not overly cold. Oh yes sometimes girl has to stay warm right? I say play with fabrics as leather is not the only option. I love tweed models, teddy fabrics, wool and more. These jackets can be fun but yes leather is a great investment long term.
