9 of the best spring jackets to invest in now

Now that the Beasts from the East have finally gone away, it’s the perfect time to start building your spring wardrobe.

Our staple piece? A lightweight but still practical jacket – here’s 9 of the best to invest in now…

Safari

Massimo Dutti’s jacket perfectly captures the safari trend with oversized pockets and a wide waist belt. Throw it on to stay snug at the weekend – it’s comfy, but still smart enough for any occasion.

Stripe


A nice jacket for an evening occasion, & Other Stories’ blue and white stripe blazer adds a fresh, yet formal feel to dark skinny jeans and heeled sandals.

Pastel

Pastel colours are a must have this season, and this blazer is a great way to brighten up your wardrobe. Pair it with a white thin knit jumper, light-wash jeans and black loafers for a great off-duty look.

Trench

A.W.A.K.E reinvents the traditional trench coat by adding balloon sleeves and a delicate polka-dot panel running down the back – a nod to SS18’s favourite print.

Embellished

Inject some fun into your jacket collection with Topshop’s rodeo shacket. The Western style cover-up features embroidered flowers and silver studs, making this a jacket any cowboy would be proud to wear.

Piped

H&M’s stand-up collar felt jacket will keep you warm during the early days of spring. The black piping is a striking contrast against the white background, giving a chic twist.

Parka

The British weather can be very unpredictable no matter the season. Whistles’ hooded parka will ensure you are not only prepared, but also looking stylish whatever the forecast may be.
