Here are the 5 best spring jackets that are just perfect for those in-between days! As the season shifts from winter to spring, having a good transitional jacket in your wardrobe is an absolute must during the in-between seasons.
What jacket styles to look for this spring? Well, this season, the best spring jackets go back to basics with classic silhouettes that will never be out of style, such as trench coats or blazers. These are considered spring classics and statement pieces that can transform a simple look into something truly next level.
There are also new trends this season to consider, like leather jackets —which have made a triumphant return, or relaxed denim jackets, perfect for those not-quite-warm-yet days to everything in between.
So, to help you find the perfect spring coats and jackets to invest in, I’ve rounded up the best options of the season. Keep scrolling to see all the best spring jackets to have in rotation—and my favorite picks worth shopping.
1. The Camel Coat
There is nothing more immediately chic than a double-breasted or beautifully belted camel coat thrown over even the most casual basics! Indeed, the camel coat is one of those wardrobe staples that can instantly transform a look from mundane to elevated.
A camel coat also serves as the ideal fashion foundation to layer your other spring wardrobe classics underneath, like a simple oversized button-down shirt or a cozy Breton-style striped sweater.
2. The Denim Jacket
The denim jacket is one of those wardrobe staples that are timeless and seasonless, it’s a classic wardrobe mainstay you can hold onto forever! This spring, consider opting for a black or white denim jacket for a more polished look. I have this gorgeous Sandro oversized denim jacket with rhinestones on my wishlist.
For a très chic smart-casual look, wear your favorite denim jacket over a turtleneck knit (like this fabulous Sandro Roll neck wool sweater) or a basic t-shirt (I love these from Sézane). Add pleated wide-leg trousers like this gorgeous Loulou Studio Sbiru pleated wool pants and a pair of Tod’s Gomma Pesante loafers. Et voilà!
3. The Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is a forever chic piece to always have in your wardrobe! It adds a subtle yet unexpected edge to any classic look. This season, distressed, bomber, and biker silhouettes are in fashion. If you’re looking for something more timeless, I recommend gravitating toward tailored styles like this COS oversized cropped leather blouson or this Loulou Studio Sulat leather jacket.
If you prefer a classic style, consider opting for this gorgeous Sézane Zig jacket in camel suede (which is on my wishlist) or this Sandro leather jacket. Choose one size bigger than your usual size for a relaxed or oversized fit to get the most wear out of your jacket.
4. The Timeless Blazer
Whether paired with jeans or with matching suit pants for a full look, this menswear-inspired item is one of spring’s strongest style staples. This season, opt for a gray, beige, or navy blue blazer to bring polish to any look.
Leonce’s top pick of the best blazers:
- Sandro double-breasted suit jacket
- Sézane Michele jacket
- Maje black tailored blazer
- Rosaé Paris Le Bonaparte or Le Richelieu
Also, this spring, consider opting for an oversized blazer with strong shoulders like this beautiful Loulou Studio oversized wool blazer.
5. The Classic Trench Coat
Trench coats will always be a classic choice for spring! They are the perfect coat for this transitional spring period between heavy-duty coats to light jackets and perfect for those rainy days ahead. And with its timeless details and neutral color palette, a beige trench coat is definitely the item you can wear and hold onto forever! It is definitely one style worth investing in.
Being French, the trench is one of my favorite outerwear for the spring season. I’ve had a few different styles over the years, but my favorites are Sézane’s Scott trench coat and Burberry’s The Chelsea trench coat. The J.Crew New Icon Trench is a great option as well!
