Spring can be an awkward time in the coats and jackets department. You no longer feel the need for heavyweight numbers (nobody wants to be sweating on a quick walk to the shops) but you don’t want to wear something so light that you’ll still be cold when you venture out.
What you really need is a lighter coat that you can layer up to suit spring weather. And because we’re here for every style woe, we’ve done the hard work for you by rounding up three kinds of jackets that you need for this transition season.
You can’t go wrong with a denim jacket. Whichever wash you prefer, wear your denim jacket with a roll neck jumper underneath for the colder – but not freezing – kind of days.
Wear with: A t-shirt if it’s warm, a weightier jumper if it’s colder (you might want to size up on your denim jacket in this case). Go all-out with a double-denim get up in your favourite pair of jeans. By the way, here’s how to make your jeans last longer.
The shacket: the shirt and jacket hybrid. We know, sounds a little odd, but this wondrous piece of clothing is a bit of a life saver. Too warm for a jacket but too cold to just wear a shirt? Enter the shacket.
The good old bomber jacket is back for spring 2020 with a few upgrades. Go classic in black, go premium in leather or go smarter in a navy design finished with a collar. This is the smart/casual jacket you need in your closet.
Wear with: Keep your bomber jacket looking neat with a pair of jeans and a knitted polo. Slick.
