T his Month, despite the current climate, the Cohorted office is sharing their favourite coats/jackets. As we make the transformation into Spring and count down the days until we’re out of isolation, we want to share our top choices for a lightweight throw on, ideal for a day trip or spring evening that will complete your outfit.
I’m a cold human, so my wardrobe is full of jackets and it’s rare you’ll catch me without some form of outer layer. This cream faux leather shacket (shirt-jacket, if you’re not a connoisseur of the world of coats like me), is perfect transitional piece for when the weather warms up! I’ll be wearing it casually with a white tee and jeans, and over a slip dress for dressier occasions.

I’m not a huge fan of big coats, that’s why I opt for the lighter jackets and you can’t go wrong with a basic bomber jacket. The lightweight jacket is great for spring and to slip on for an everyday look. I love the khaki colour as it is perfect to rock an urban look, Styled with a pair of jeans, a tee and my favourite cap.

It’s everywhere this month and there’s a reason for it. The ASOS Colourblock Trench Coat has stolen my heart. The tied sleeve details with a flattering belted waist, this not-so-basic trench is the perfect addition to any outfit. I’m LOVING the colour-blocking trend and the lilac contrasted against the cream works so well. This little trench has me ready for Spring!

Let’s face it, no wardrobe is complete without a staple black leather jacket and all hail All Saints for always coming through with the quality leather goods. The Balfern Leather jacket is an investment piece which can be styled with literally any outfit. The quality is well worth the money and years of wear! This style is also available in light grey and cream which is ideal for spring! p.s. they currently have 25% off online, thank me later.

Since the blazer has made a huge come back, i’m not ready to get rid of them any time soon- just change the colours up a bit! This lightweight linen blazer is perfect for all spring occasions, pair with a cropped blue jean in the day or a floaty dress for a spring evening meal. The colour of this blazer completely wins me over.

With spring here and summer just around the corner, it’s time to bring out this boxy, crisp jacket: the Jillian jacket. Being lightweight, organic cotton and practical, it’s suitable for all occasions. I plan to wear this with the other staple items in my wardrobe such as a white vest and black jeans – using the blank white canvas to play around with gold accessories.

I feel a jacket really makes an outfit, so I love to collect as many as I can to feel I have a different outfit for each day. My favourite is a puffer jacket, I love pairing this with a cross-over bag to complete the look! My ultimate go to place is PrettyLittleThing. The puffer jackets on there have a sense of an urban but classy vibe towards them… which I just absolutely love!

What better way to step in to Spring than in a stone trench coat, a wardrobe staple that is in fashion year after year. My fave is the Stone Editor Trench from Topshop, which is currently on sale so grab it whilst you can. I love the length of this Trench and think it is very wearable, it looks great with a simple outfit such as a classic white t-shirt and a pair of denim jeans.

Welcome spring the right way by chucking the big coat away and swap it for a light jacket, because let’s face it, who doesn’t LOVE jackets. This season I have eyes on this cropped cream jacket as you can wear it with anything and it just makes an outfit look a whole lot better. This is also perfect if you love an oversized look.
