Transitional weather can be tricky to navigate, especially when it comes to your outerwear, but the new season’s spring jackets have got us all covered. What to look out for? Utility styles, chic capes, sleek leather blazers and white denim jackets are the catwalk’s runaway successes. These are SS19’s top picks…
The utility jacket
With its plethora of pockets, this is the type of jacket that comes in very handy at summer festivals or on vacation, when your daily essentials increase to include a good SPF, a camera, a portable phone charger… But it’s not just practical. Try Joseph or Totême for designs that combine fashion and function, then pair with denim cut-offs and a plain white T-shirt off duty, or beige workman’s pants and a crisp cotton white shirt for the office.
The leather jacket
The denim jacket
Instagram fans will instantly recognize LA brand Goldsign’s ‘Morton’ denim jacket – its slightly cocooned shape and pinched waist makes it ultra-flattering and perfect for teaming with floral midi dresses. Other denim highlights include Isabel Marant’s boxy ‘Iolana’ style – team it with a silk slip dress for a modern contrast.
The cape jacket
This season’s statement capes are ideal for wrapping up in when the temperature dips. Burberry’s reversible wool design works double duty: wear the checked side over a casual tee-and-jeans combo for a stylish weekend look, then switch to classic camel for office-appropriate chic.
