Christmas feels like a lifetime ago and I’m so excited for the arrival of Spring. When it comes to fashion, March and April are tricky. They’re the odd in-between months when you’re just not sure whether to stick to your Winter wear or to prematurely crack out the Summer styles. If you’re looking for a staple coat I’d say that Trench style coats are definitely the way to go. They’re by far my favourite type of coat to style. They effortlessly dress up any outfit and work really well for both Winter and Spring. Although my warmest coat is a duffel, my trench coats get the most wear in times requiring both style and an extra layer.
This coat is from Jaeger, but I’ve had it a while so unfortunately its no longer on their website. It’s perfect paired with dark colours in Winter, but the light grey is really versatile. When paired with pale pinks and other Spring staple colours, it transitions into the ever so slightly warmer weather really well.
My pick of Jaeger’s new season is this double face coat which is similar in length and its neutral easy to wear style. I think its absolutely gorgeous and have been arguing with myself for a while now over whether I really need another coat!
You probably know by now that for any staple piece I’m a huge fan of neutral palettes. I highly approve of camel, which is super easy to wear and so versatile. My Ted Baker coat is perfect for Spring but looks great on those cold, bright Winter days too. I love how many different ways it can be worn; with or without the belt and with the collar down or pulled up. Ted Baker are a bit of a pain with their sizing though, mine is a size 2.
