Jacket Season Is Almost Here, so I'm Investing in These 5 Styles Early

While we're still to see out the last couple of months of winter, we already find ourselves dreaming of our springtime wardrobes. Of course, we're excited about the dresses we'll finally be able to take out of storage, the sandals that will require us to book in for the first pedicure we've had in months, and the basket bags we'll carry in the crook of our arms. Above all else, however, we're most looking forward to the jackets we'll be investing in. 

Owing to the fact we live in Britain, which is known for its changeable weather, jackets form an integral part of our spring attire. As such, we always keep our eyes peeled for the best styles to drop. Leave it too close to April, and we guarantee all the chicest-looking options will be long gone. 

For 2020, the jacket scene is certainly shaping up to be diverse. On one side, you have '90s-style blazers and safari jackets that all come in varying shades of beige. On the other side, there are polished tweed textures. Then, slap bang in the middle is the newest take on the puffer jacket trend. 

Different they may be but all of the top spring jacket trends 2020 has to offer are equally covetable. Scroll below to see and shop them. 

1. LEATHER BLAZERS

Style Notes: Leather blazers were all the rage in the early '90s, and for 2020, they've made a huge resurgence. Zara's option is ideal if you're keeping tabs on your purse strings. Though, Reformation's real-leather iteration proves tempting. 

Style Notes: Bouclé has long had ties in fashion, thanks largely to Chanel, which keeps the jacket very much a part of its design DNA. However, it seems that 2020 is the year that other designers have given it a whirl, too, to very chic avail. Use it to dress up your go-to denim. 

3. SAFARI STYLES

Style Notes: Picking up where the worker jacket left off is the safari jacket. While very similar, the safari jacket comes in a palette of neutrals (with the exception of rust and green) and has a nipped-in waist, usually by the way of a coordinating belt. Sleek but practical, it looks best worn over floral midi dresses with chunky boots.

4. PRINTED PUFFERS

Style Notes: Having made our peace with the fact that the puffer jacket will always make us feel the teeniest bit like the Michelin Man, we're now embracing more statement styles than before. The fashion set agree and have been wearing printed puffers on repeat.

Style Notes: Having previously been considered as country-wear, cosy and cool quilted jackets are proving just as prevalent in urban settings this spring. Wear yours with a chunky knit and leather trousers now, then with denim shorts and simple jersey tops for summer festivals. It's what Alexa Chung would want.
