How to wear your Spring jacket now

With temperatures struggling to go beyond single figures, chances are you’re still safely cocooned in duvet or wool coats. So this post may seem a little premature – trust us, we think now is exactly the time to be investing in a spring jacket. Whether it’s our old faithful style staple of the classic denim jacket, or fancy a spring fling with a coloured, cord, check or khaki version, this is our new go to ‘practi-cool’ layer.

This style of jacket works as the perfect layering piece, under a coat, over a top (roll necks, stripes and tees especially) and easier to remove (& carry) than a big knit. Also a great alternative to the cardigan if, like me, you always feel slightly Pauline Fowler-esque when wearing one. And of course, once temperatures start to rise, it’s your perfect throw on jacket.

And for those mornings when you leave the house freezing only to be melting by the time you get to work/school drop off – this is your answer. It’s great if you work in an office like ours where the air con seems to only function on tropical or sub zero.

I’m still lamenting the loss of the perfect khaki shacket I owned (& carelessly left in a pub one night never to be seen again), so this post has definitely inspired me to invest in a new one. We hope it inspires you to do the same.
