9 Spring Jacket Trends Fashion People Are Already Championing This Year

It’s a special day, the first day of the year you can go out without your winter coat, isn’t it?

It’s certainly a feeling I look forward to every year, and although we had a glimpse of it a couple of weeks back only to be plunged back into minus temperatures, rest assured real-life spring is on its way, and it’ll soon be time to vacuum-pack all those wool coats for another season (for real this time).

The minimalistic collar on this is very chic. 

I have this blazer, and everyone always asks me where it's from. 

This blue suit is my current spring crush, but you could wear the blazer separately with white jeans or creamy neutrals.

Utility jackets make for the perfect layer all spring and into summer, too. Dress them down with jeans or up, like Frann did, with a midi skirt.

This cropped version is so chic. 

This jacket has been on my wish list for years, and I think it's time to finally invest. 

One seriously expensive-looking jacket on a budget. 

6. Denim

Denim is back for spring 2022 in a big way—jackets, shirts, jeans, you name it. Or why not wear them all at the same time?

SHOP THE LOOK:

This slightly cropped style would be a good partner for high-waisted trousers and dresses. 

This feels so stylish and expensive. Well done, H&M. 

A classic you'll keep in your wardrobe for years. 

7. Leather

Alexis Foreman proves leather jackets work just as well thrown over knits as they do over dresses. Pair with white denim like she's done here for a fresh spring look.

This is the exact style Alexis is wearing above. 

Karen Millen's plus-size range is seriously impressive, as is this buttery soft leather jacket. 

The Frankie Shop is known for creating perfect oversized blazers, and this faux-leather version is no different. 

If you told me this H&M jacket was designer, I'd believe you. 

8. Bomber

A good bomber jacket gives off such a cool, relaxed vibe for spring. If you're a fan of elevated basics, it would be rude not to have one in your collection. 

SHOP THE LOOK:

A classic black bomber will see you through all the seasons. 

This one feels perfect for spring in particular. 

Something about this pink bomber jacket is calling to me. I'd wear it with light-blue loose jeans and a white ribbed vest.

9. Suede

Whether you opt for fringing or a more tailored blazer style, a suede jacket instantly brings your wardrobe into spring. 

SHOP THE LOOK:

Be still my cowboy-loving heart. I'll start saving now.

This blazer is the perfect partner for jeans, tailoring and even minidresses.
