It’s rainy. It’s sunny. It 2°C one week and then 20°C the next. Yes, it’s that time of year when, together with your brolly and some canny layering, the central piece in your unpredictable-weather wardrobe should be a transitional coat or two.
1. The trench coat
A mainstay in any woman’s wardrobe at this time of year, the trench is a classic Spring coat that you can’t go wrong with. Combining practicality and femininity, this style looks gorgeous dressed up or down and, most importantly, the lightweight fabric and pale hue means it’s the perfect outfit finisher for those Spring days that are (fingers crossed) just around the corner.
2. The leather jacket
Every woman needs a trusty leather jacket in her Winter-to-Spring wardrobe. Still heavy enough to keep you warm, without leaving you sweltering at the first sight of sun, it really is the ideal layering piece. When you want to start cutting back on the black in your wardrobe, this paler version in silver grey is a great option.
3. The tweed jacket
There’s something both classic and elegant about a tweed jacket. With the potential to dress up a casual look or double up as an occasion coat for weddings and social events, this will be a bit of a wardrobe hero to take you through the next few seasons. We love the collarless design and raw edges: the hardest decision you’ll have is whether to opt for the longline or shorter cropped version!
