Give Winter the Cold Shoulder

Your spring outerwear must-haves

Dressing for spring can become a game of Russian roulette; with warm spring days being brutally invaded by the lingering wrath of winter, do we really want to take our chances? The weather inconsistencies leave us in a fashion predicament: What do I wear?  Fashion does not have to be sacrificed for the sake of functionality–you can have it both! The answer to your spring fashion dilemma lies in the classics.

In the Trenches
When one thinks of a trench coat, it’s no surprise Burberry’s iconic trench coat comes to mind.  Worn by Hollywood icons Audrey Hepburn and Meryl Streep in classic movies, it’s easy to see how the trench pairs well with the transitional season even in this present day. Its classic silhouette and clean lines ensures your outfits are polished-whether you choose to embrace an urban street style or a model off duty look. The differentiating factor of all trenches lies in the details. The classic trench has been revisited many times over the years-from leather sleeves, to variations in length, there is bound to be a perfect match for everybody. For a little bit of flare, go for bolder colours such as light pastels or vibrant hues. On colder days, layer a trench over another warmer jacket! There’s no need to choose between function and style-this all-in-one has got you covered.

Leather Me Up
A leather jacket is timeless classic piece-with different styles to suit the needs of everyone. This fashionable piece has a fantastic return on investment. Ultimately, it has become a seasonless must-have as it transitions well all year round. It is more than a fashion staple; some can say it’s become a tough second skin. Play with different colours, textures and styles to find the perfect jacket for you. With spring approaching, bright colours and perforated jackets are great alternatives to the classic black. This wardrobe staple is easy to style – dress it up over dresses and button downs or wear it over a t-shirt and jeans to keep it sleek and casual. The leather jacket is a quintessential layering piece to welcome the spring weather; giving you an edge up on those days the weather surprises you.

Dare to Denim
Huge in the 80s and 90s, the denim jacket has made a comeback and it’s safe to say it’s here to stay. Over the years, changes to its silhouette and colour has made it a fashion staple -oversized, cropped, acid wash, you name it, this jacket is adapting to the fashion landscape.  Details such as studs, distressing, and patchwork add a touch of personal style while still sticking with the classic that has made it a staple. A denim jacket pairs perfectly well with almost everything – from flirty feminine pieces to laid-back athleisure, the denim jacket is a seamless finish to any outfit. Much like it’s leather counterpart, the denim jacket is a versatile layering piece to carry you into the cooler summer nights.
