Transitional season wardrobe selections
When temperatures consistently exceed fifty degrees, as predicted by our weather apps, it's time to swap out your heavy puffers for lighter clothing. Sadly, warm weather may be erratic this time of year; breezy mornings and evenings are frequently interspersed with breezy afternoons, necessitating the need of a heating source during the sharp decrease in temperature. Fortunately, there's a happy medium that exists between summer's flowy, barely-there kimonos and winter's overcoats: the spring jacket category.
Consider this: spring coats are really autumnal jackets, but with a more vibrant color scheme. The most popular outerwear pieces for this transitional season include bombers, blazers, shackets, camel-colored trench coats, light-wash denim jackets, and different leather shapes. The finest selections will ward off any residual chill, they are stylish and useful, and they are simple to throw on and wear in a variety of ways.
Although we will always have our favorite go-to pieces, it makes sense that 2023 will usher in a new wave of spring jacket styles. All set for more? These are some trends for spring jackets you might want to look into.
Spring Jacket Trends to Wear When It's Not Too Warm But Not Too Cold
These days, outerwear includes your favorite article of apparel, the jacket, as well as anything that covers your shoulders and has a button or zipper. Christina and Teresa report that they're noticing a variety of blazer cuts become popular, such as boyfriend cuts, cropped variants, and even sleeveless iterations of the office essential. They are versatile, lightweight, and appropriate for any upcoming season.
2. Trench Coats
The CEO of Abby Young Styling and fashion stylist Abby Young tells InStyle that "an array of vibrant colors and fun textures" will be all the rage when it comes to 2023's spring jacket trends, in contrast to the simplicity and earth tones that characterized trench coats of the past.
Sarah Sommer, a stylist at Wardrobe Apparel, is eager to style her go-to trench this season because she believes it "automatically elevates any look." Sommer says she will be wearing the traditional coat with the hottest styles of the season in 2023 when it comes to styling the outfit.
I'm excited to wear it with a catsuit, white shoes, a cap, and an oversized tote bag for a carefree yet stylish look. Alternatively, you could opt for a more romantic look by matching the trench to a tiny shoulder bag, strappy shoes, and a transparent spring dress.
You may want to reconsider your assumption that the sheer trend in fashion was limited to dresses, shirts, and bottoms. "They achieve the perfect balance between subtle sexiness and practicality," Conroy tells InStyle, adding that the return is "ever so sweet." Semi-sheer jackets are excellent choices.
4. Denim Jackets
Soneca Guadara, a celebrity stylist based in New York, told InStyle that she like the denim jacket because it's simultaneously timeless and fashionable. In addition, it's a garment that may easily transfer you from the end of winter into spring because of its versatility.
According to Guadara, "[Denim] gives more of a laid-back feel and looks than a tailored jacket/coat." "It goes with almost everything, including dresses and jeans and high-waisted pants." I adore how it highlights a woman's figure. It's also lightweight and convenient to pack in your carry-on bag.
5. Waist-Length Cuts
In keeping with the idea of packing lighter, Young says that although short coats are returning, they're not quite "cropped" this time around. Instead, at the very least, waist-length is the new cropped.
6. Opt for Maximal Over Minimal
In her last spring jacket recommendation, Young highlights the 2023 trend of maximalism.
With their debut of multiple sequin-embellished designs in bold colors like teal, red, and violet, Valentino's most recent Spring/Summer collection showed us that sleek, tasteful maximalism is in, she tells InStyle. I suggest going for a jacket in a more eye-catching hue.
7. Tweed Fabric
ICYDK, tweed is quite in right now, and according to wardrobe consultant Grace Thomas, the preppy fabric will only get more well-liked as spring approaches.
I've always had a thing for traditional looks, so I adore the shapes on tweed jackets that are popular this season. For this style, Sandro, Self Portrait, and Veronica Beard are excellent options. I'm going to go with lighter hues. You'll see me wearing this sort of jacket during the daytime, dressed down with jeans and shoes when I wear a tweed structured coat.
