For many, the hunt for the perfect spring jacket is an enormous task. The lightness of the fabric has to be just right, and so does the cut. It’s also completely down to personal taste when it comes down to what it will work with. Therefore, what makes the perfect women’s spring jacket is not only a matter of taste but also a number of factors that have to be on point.
Something that can layer
The first ‘real’ day of spring, by which most people mean the first day it really feels like spring in terms of temperature, often gives a false sense of security. The first day you can go outside without having to throw on layers or a hat and scarf can leave you feeling all too optimistic about the months to come. Realistically, spring can throw a multitude of weather changes into the mix, and so something like a women duffle coat will provide warmth without compromising on style.
A complementary color
Spring is often the season that people dust off their lighter and brighter garments from the back of the wardrobe, and get more experimental with color. Ideally, a jacket that works with your wardrobe will see you throughout the season. For some, a jacket that is pale or beige not only creates the feel of springtime but can also be relatively neutral on top of brighter outfit combinations. Whereas, for others, the lighter fabric is enough to suffice as a spring jacket. Picking a dark color in a lighter fabric can be just as complementary.
From day to night
Now the weather’s getting warmer, you’ll be spending evenings in the beer garden and days out in the sun. Wearing a jacket that can easily transition from the daytime to the evening means you can spend all day enjoying the lighter evenings without the need to switch it up to a nighttime look. However, the temperature might not quite be up to summer’s standards, and so what you wear will need to stay stylish while keeping some room for layers underneath. The trench coat is often seen as a springtime staple, and luckily it’s no longer just about the beige, French-style coloring. This season you’ll even find black, PVC-texture trench coats which can easily transition into a night time look.
On top of that, spring is also a great time to wear shorter cuts of the jacket. Biker and leather jackets can now safely be worn without the risk of feeling too cold when venturing outside. These can easily be worn from day to night be wearing a chunky-knit cardigan underneath with a scarf over the top for when the evening finally draws in. Leather can also add an edgy twist to an evening dress or dressier apparel, which means you won’t have to dash home for a more sensible coat.
Whatever the ‘perfect’ spring jacket means to you, be sure to pick something that enables you to make the most of the exciting change in season. Gone are the evenings that require endless, bulky layers and the trips outside that require second-judgment.
