Spring is almost here and while our oversized puffer jackets have served us well, it's time to pack them away and say hello to our new season jacket style.
First, try swapping the lightweight autumnal greens and browns with more whimsical spring colours. Think whites, blush pinks and sage.
As spring approaches, don't be afraid to experiment with patterns and textures, too. This popular Pure Cotton Floral Quilted Shacket from Marks & Spencer, at just £45, is a great example of transitional fashion to take you through a change of season.
If you're more at home with darker block colours, you can still achieve a spring look by layering a navy cropped jacket, like this Cotton Twill Cropped Jacket from John Lewis for £45 over the top of a colourful midi dress.
Let us take you through some of our best picks as the warmer weather approaches.
Best spring jackets for women
Recycled Thermowarmth™ Lightweight Quilted Jacket | £35 from Marks & Spencer
Available in five colours, from khaki to navy, this trendy quilted jacket is flying off the virtual shelves, with lots of customers commenting favourably about how 'cosy', 'useful' and 'versatile and affordable' it is.
Another winner for shoppers is how big and deep the side pockets are. And happy customers comment that it attracts compliments too.
Pure Cotton Floral Quilted Shacket | £45 from Marks & Spencer
This Marks & Spencer jacket is selling out fast and with good reason. Among its many five-star reviews, one customer said: "Fab spring to autumn jacket in lovely colour and print. Not too structured so fairly casual but could be dressed up too." In our opinion, this is the perfect transitional piece.
Jersey Quilted Relaxed Bomber Jacket | £39.50 from Marks & Spencer
Available in ivory and dark navy, this relaxed bomber jacket fits comfortably over any springtime outfit, but comes into its own with a pair of contrasting wide-leg trousers. Customers who have previously purchased it have rated it highly because of how easily it can be dressed up or down.
Linen Trench Coat | £139 from John Lewis
No spring jacket edit is complete without an appearance from the classic trench. This timeless piece should be a staple in any wardrobe and we've chosen this style for spring because of its unusual linen material making it a more lightweight and versatile addition to your wardrobe.
Cotton Twill Cropped Jacket | £45 from John Lewis
This is a slightly different take on the classic denim jacket and we love it. The neat, collared neckline makes it very easy to throw over a dress, but buttoned up with a pair of culottes and sandals, it's a real crowd pleaser.
Gingham Chore Jacket | £88 (Was £110)
We couldn't put together a spring jacket edit without including gingham. If you've been looking for some trend-led pieces for your spring wardrobe, gingham will inevitably be at the top of your shopping list. Plus, Boden currently has 20% off its new season collection, making this chore jacket even more enticing.
Cotton Trench Jacket | £112 (Was £140) from Boden
This cropped trench is available in yew and stone with cute detail such as its large buttons and blouson sleeves. It's the epitome of spring in a style that's unlikely to fall out of fashion any time soon. It fits true to size and your regular size will fit a jumper underneath comfortably, according to reviews.
Brampton Waterproof Trench Coat | £149 from Joules
While spring is typically a time for warmer weather, it'd be somewhat naive of us to pack away our waterproofs. Lightweight waterproofs are the key to springtime dressing and this Joules trench is a lovely addition to any wardrobe. Our favourite part? The cord collar, which gives it a country vibe.
Ultra-light Down Jacket | £24.90 (Was £69.90) from Uniqlo
There aren't many jackets that receive cult-status year after year, but Uniqlo's lightweight down jacket is one of them. Available in an updated list of spring shades, including this blush pink, this jacket has been revamped to include an even lighter and softer down.
Joy Quilted Jacket | £129 from Hush
If you'd like to stand out this spring, look no further than this bright pink quilted jacket from Hush. Quilted jackets have joined shearling jackets to become one of the more popular looks for the spring. Add a pop of colour into the mix and you've got the perfect transitional piece.
Collarless Organic-Cotton Denim Jacket | £110 from The White Company
If you've been perusing spring dresses, you may have noticed that grandad collars are super popular for spring/summer 23. The trend extends to jackets, so we were pleased to find this denim jacket on The White Company, guaranteed to elevate any look.
