New Season Jackets

I'm not sure about you, but I'm getting sick of my winter coat. Once smart and cosy, now covered in bits of fluff and with buttons popping off every 5 minutes. So in the spirit of Spring (which will hopefully make an appearance any day now!) I give you a round up of the most lust-worthy jackets to adorn yourselves with once the days get that little bit warmer.

First on the list is the nude blazer. Highly versatile and much more summery than a black or grey equivalent. Tailoring this season is far from the bold shoulders and stiff lines of AW09 and is a lot softer, relaxed and essentially more comfortable. This nude blazer from New Look is a steal at £18 and the soft jersey material is perfect for when the weather gets warmer.

Next up is the fail safe trench coat. Although don't be fooled into thinking it's boring; this season the trench gets an update and comes in a variety of colours and patterns. Try a bright pink or blue or a patterned number, this trench from Topshop for £80 is perfect for day and night and is far from dull.

Now the biker jacket has been around for some time in many different forms but this season ditch the black and go for a softer look in a grey style. This Miss Selfridge number isn't real leather so won't break the bank at £58 but the cropped sleeves will come in handy for throwing it over a dress come Spring time.

Last but by no means least is the military inspired jacket. Military coats were all over the high street last season and the jacket versions are likely to be the same. Khaki is obviously the key colour and is a lot more versatile than you may at first think. This one from Renewal at Urban Outfitters is a great casual cover-up, big enough to fit your layers underneath when it's cold and will look great over a petticoat dress when it gets that bit warmer.
