YES YOU CAN: Work a spring jacket

YOU’s fashion director Shelly Vella shows you how to style a spring jacket and what the hottest trends are

Stepping into spring means it’s time to put away your winter coat and look for a jacket to straddle the seasons. Parisian-style tweed jackets with button and trim details are hot right now. Prefer a more casual offering? Opt for a neutral safari-cut jacket, or if you love a smarter look, try a roomy blazer in one of the season’s newer hues.

Elevate a weekend jacket by teaming it with sequins or tailored trousers. Jacket, £129, Vest, £59, and Shorts, £69, Mint Velvet

The ultimate spring blazer? Luxe leather with a pop of colour. Blazer, £399, and Trousers, £109, Karen Millen
