The awkward time of the year has finally arrived: it’s too warm to be wrapped in layer upon layer of knitwear but too cold to strut around in a T-shirt. The answer? A timeless spring jacket that you can rework season after season. Read on to find out which essential items you should invest in…
3 TIMELESS SPRING JACKETS
The denim jacket
Versatile and stylish, the denim jacket reappears on catwalks year after year. Light wash denim has been huge for a while now and makes a great choice for those looking to nail the summer vibe. Avoid jackets with statement prints or designs that could become dated easily for ultimate longevity.
As part of the revival of 90s fashion, acid wash denim has made it big in 2014. A grey or black acid washed jacket will be perfect for making the transition into the warmer months. However, in just a few years’ time, this style could be out of fashion. If you do embrace this look, we recommend being cash-savvy and opting for a cheaper design, like this £25.99 Pull&Bear one from ASOS.
The country jacket
The casual country look has always been a signature style for discerning gentleman. Tweed, corduroy and wax all characterise this sophisticated look. While the high street may imitate this style, spending a little extra on the real deal could be an investment worth making.
Barbour jackets, available from Repertoire Fashion, are renowned for being premium-quality, practical and stylish, and are also a firm favourite with celebrities. A timeless quilted jacket is a must for moving from winter to spring and, knowing the unpredictable British weather, you’ll probably wear it a lot through summer too!
The leather jacket
Leather jackets aren’t just a spring essential: they’re so versatile they can be worn all year round.
Every woman should own a classic black leather jacket. Faux leather jackets are a great option for those working with a tight budget, although buying a genuine leather jacket is a good investment to make. Not only will it last longer than its PVC counterpart, the leather will age beautifully.
Leather can be quite warm, so it’s perfect for breezy spring days and summer evenings when the temperature starts to cool.
