As spring eventually rolls in, and with the uncertainty of each weather forecast, it can be difficult to know which jacket to choose. Facing the elements with elegance during these in-between months, when it can go from terrible downpours, to blazing sunshine in the space of a morning, is a tricky business. This spring you will find our jackets stand the test of time, and weather. Fusing unrivalled quality with our expertise, as with every season, we are offering a newly designed collection of jackets and coats, which have every base covered. So let us guide you through choosing the perfect spring jackets.
Nothing will ease you into spring and beyond like a leather biker jacket. Whether it’s an old-school studded number, or a uniquely coloured piece, it’s the perfect choice to help you adjust to the warmer temperatures. Classic black biker styles, such as the Thursby, can be layered up or down for any occasion. If you're searching for something a little more vibrant, then turn your attention to our brightly coloured suede this season. Hugely on-trend, the Vera Moda Royce jacket is the perfect example, and will certainly add an edge to your outerwear wardrobe. If pink is a step too far, then you could opt for one of our more subtle spring colours. Expect to see a lot of grey, burgundy and blue shades.
Whilst spring may conjure up images of floral floaty dresses and sandals, the early March weather doesn’t always cooperate with our fashion dreams. The classic leather jacket is our favourite spring layer. And, of course, we do contemporary twists on this wardrobe staple better than anybody else. Take the Monique; a refreshing colourway, intricate piping detail, and feminine fit. The choice is endless. We’ve got round necks, funnel collars, press studs, zips, hoods, reds, blues, black, tan, and even lilac.
As far as wardrobe staples go, a leather coat is up there with durable denim and crisp white shirts. It’s the building block on which transitional outfits are built. Despite the weather starting to warm up, there’s no reason to take a seasonal break from leather. We're pretty excited about the Ullscarf. Purposefully designed to carry you through every season, and crafted in UK sourced leather. It's the ultimate wear-with-everything kind of coat.
To protect you from unpredictable bouts of rain (and even snow), outerwear is a vital element of your spring wardrobe. It may be time to say goodbye to chunky layers and opt for comfortable lightweight jackets. Developing our range of non-leather outerwear, we have some exciting new styles in faux suede (but more on that later). We’ve also added Canadian brand ‘Novelti’ to our roster. Key styles include the Nova jacket – which is both wind and water repellent. We’ve still got our classic quilted styles, plus our UK-made wax cotton coats.
Spring jackets are a truly tricky business. As you reassess your wardrobe for the season ahead finding something durable, functional as well as fashionable is a test in itself, decide what it is you are actually looking for before taking the leap! Is it about adding colour into your wardrobe? Is it about an element of water resistant protection? Most importantly, it’s about finding the balance between warmth, lightweight, style and function. Easier said than done, but perfect spring jackets will allow you to pair them with a variety of outfits and easily layer-up, or down when necessary.
