The Search for a Spring Jacket

The course of finding the perfect Spring jacket never did run smoothly. This is a very hard lesson I am currently learning. I feel like I should invest (if you can consider a £30 coat and investment) in a new key item for Spring; the jacket. If there is one thing I should advise it is don't have anything in mind. Now I just need to learn to take my own advice...

This Topshop biker jacket (left, £60) is a beauty. I can't resist a bit of shearling and the effortless, laid-back cut of the collar is perfect for a spot of nonchalance edge, yet the indigo wash gives it a bit of a Spring update. The problem? The price.

Again this ASOS trench coat (centre, £60) is perfect on paper; the tan colour, the sixties inspired cut, the lightweight material but it's double my budget. It's just so pretty though, I mean, do I really need that Shakespeare textbook...

This go-with-everything number from Boohoo (right, £40) is slightly more on budget. I love the relaxed style and the navy colour as an alternative to black. I must say I do love the shirt and jumper combo underneath though, maybe it's a sign this jacket is for me...

Help me out please guys; which one is your favourite?

  1. Hi dear, how have you been? I love the middle trench simply because the colour is so versatile and it looks very elegant.

  2. My favourite is actually the least expensive Boohoo jacket, it's so versatile with the blazer style look and the navy shade, it would go with pretty much everything. I have a navy jacket similar to this, more oversized and 3/4 sleeves, but I wore it for many Spring/Summers and it was my absolute favourite. You've made me want to dig it out again for when the sun comes out! I think £60 is quite a lot to invest in a new jacket just for Spring, £40 is much more affordable. I found my perfect Spring jacket in TK Maxx, at the bargain reduced price of just £30 (you can see it in my last OOTD post). It's definitely worth checking places like TK Maxx, you never know what you'll find :) xxx
