The Spring Coat and Jacket Edit

Style Theory: Spring jackets, the answer to transitional dressing, can transform a basic outfit taking it smoothly from season to season whilst keeping you warm and protected from changeable UK Spring weather...


From khaki , to floral, to tailored to Trophy jackets I have tracked down the best on the high street now..

The Khaki Jacket
Hush Military Jacket £65
A bloggers favourite, this is a smarter Khaki jacket perfect for over jersey maxi dresses.
Next Khaki Soft Utility Jacket £65
A slouchy look, perfect for looking stylish for the schoolrun. Would look fabulous with a breton, denim shorts and superga trainers, add a pop of colour with an orange bag.
Topshop Utility Shirt Jacket £38


This jacket is super useful, can be worn as a jacket or as a shirt, would look great with denim cut off shorts/skinny ankle length jeans, a boho top and strappy sandals.

The Coat
Zara Linen Coat with Border £79.99

A great summer coat, this is fairly substanial lined, linen would be perfect for a wedding over a cream dress with gold accessories, or wear with a crisp white shirt and a pair of blue skinny jeans and flat tan strappy sandals.
Mango Wool Blend Candy Coat £99.99
As you know I do love a pink coat, I am still smitten with my M&S coat 2 years on, this would cheer up any cloudy spring day.

Zara Red Coat £89
A vibrant red, this coat is quite heavy and will be perfect for those really chilly Uk Spring days, it will see you straight through to the winter. I love clashing a red coat with a pink or turquoise bag for a cool look.
Trophy Jackets
Monsoon £99
This is slightly over the top with pom poms and jewels but I kinda love it. A cross between a jacket and a cardigan, perfect for the summer.
Monsoon £49
This cardigan/jacket is great if you are planning on taking a monochrome wardrobe on holiday, add splashes of colour with accessories. This would look great over a black jumpsuit for a chillier evening.
Marks and Spencer £59
A real statement jacket, keep the rest of your outfit simple, would look great with a grey tee, distressed jeans and flat tan strappy sandals.
Waistcoat Jacket
This is an surprisingly versatile piece to have in your wardrobe, can be worn alone or worn over a denim or leather jacket. 
Zara Long Waistcoat Jacket £39.99

Not sure I am really doing this coat justice in this photo, it needs to be worn with closer fitting clothes underneath, I would wear with a navy shift dress and tan heels, or a white blouse, blue skinny jeans and high strappy sandals.
Warehouse Sleeveless Wool Waistcoat £65
Marks and Spencer Tencel Sleeveless Mac £69

Blazers
Massimo Dutti £145

This is pricey but a really lovely tailored fit, a great length too..
Zara Roll up Sleeve Jacket £69.99
Miss Selfridges Cape Sleeve Jacket £45

A twist on the traditional blazer, the arms have been split for a cape look. Wear for an evening out over a black jumpsuit and heels or for a more casual look wear with a grey tee, distressed jeans and tan accessories.


Love, love this Cos Stores jacket, I am afraid I cannot find it online but it is most definitely in stores. It is a denim fabric and has the most fabulous draping cape detail at the back. Can be worn with jeans or dresses, would look great with cargos and heels..this is one I am buying!

Are you a fan of the Spring jacket, which one catches your eye. Obviously there are also trenches and denim jackets that I will cover next week. As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Frances xxx

  5. You look amazing in that Cos jacket, Frances! How you manage to walk out of that place without buying one of everything is beyond me!! I love the Next khaki jacket. My Zara lightweight parka has just died, and I'm looking for a replacement, so it's very tempting! xx
