Ask Belle: Spring Coats and Jackets
Feb 3, 2016
Finding a spring coat that’s not a boring seems impossible. Can you help me? I just want something that is not a bland tan trench. Love the blog.
If you have your basic trench covered, you might want to spice things up a bit. You can do this in a myriad of ways. Here are a few of the styles you can add to give your spring outerwear a boost.
Pop of Color. Need to brighten your outerwear selection? Why not bring in a bit of color? This orange coat is a bright (very bright) option. For something more subdued, I love this drapey, pale pink coat from Cupcakes and Cashmere. This mustard colored casual jacket from Old Navy is also a good choice.
Olive All the Way. I wear my olive coat constantly; it’s the perfect semi-casual jacket. This Coupe jacket is a sleek choice. For something very affordable, this Forever21 Zip-Pocket jacket is $25. Want to splurge? This Barney’s New York jacket is cool. Plus-size? This drawstring hooded jacket from Charlotte Russe is the one for you.
Unique Trenches. Want to elevate the basic trench? Choose a new style or new color. This grey trench from ASOS has both a relaxed, modern style and a chic grey hue.
Quilted Jackets. A preppy staple, the quilted jacket is a classic. While a Burberry jacket is the creme de la creme, this Barbour coat is a good substitute. For something affordable, Land’s End always has great basics at good prices. Plus-size? Try this Violeta by Mango jacket.
So what’s your favorite spring coat?
