Spring weather can still offer a bit of a chill. While you still want to wear pretty floral dresses and sandals, warding off the chilly remains of winter doesn’t have to diminish your look. A simple jacket can add the overall polish, warmth, and style you need.
If you’re looking for a jacket that can take you from work to drinks in the evening to shenanigans on the weekend with effortless style, then invest in a trench coat. The sleek silhouette is flattering on any size and looks chic paired with dresses, pants, or even jeans. A nice tailored option is White House Black Market’s Double Breasted Trench Coat in Toasted Sesame ($198). It features all the classic details including the sash, storm flaps, and tortoise shell buttons in a rich tan color.
For a more casual jacket, a bomber jacket is always another chic go-to option. Its simple, slightly fitted cut and banded waist adds just enough edge to any outfit. Leather, suede and twill are popular fabric preferences for this type of jacket. Old Navy’s Twill Bomber Jacket in Gathering Moss ($49.94) is a budget-friendly and chic option thanks to its yellowish, green hue.
Or if you prefer a more relaxed jacket, a draped front jacket is a style worth trying. With no closure in the front, the material gathers in a drape on each side, perfect for hiding trouble areas. H&M’s Draped Lyocell-blend Jacket in Dark Blue ($69.99) is a pretty option and will look flattering over an oxford and jeans or a simple spring dress.
