Dear puffer coat, it’s not you, it’s us. We couldn’t have survived all those lockdown winter walks without you and your duvet-like warmth but now we’ve spotted the daffodils shooting up and felt the sun on our face, it’s time to take a break.
Spring may not officially start until 20th March, but we’re itching to ditch our trusty winter coats for something a little lighter, a little brighter, a little more optimistic. But, with the weather veering between glorious sunshine, torrential rain and that slightly depressing grey middle ground, navigating the winter-to-spring transition period can be tricky.
Enter the spring jacket. A lightweight layer to give you extra warmth and weather protection, they’re perfect for walks, coffee runs and (soon!) al fresco pub drinks. From shackets to trenches, raincoats to fresh denim, meet the new season outerwear that’ll put a smile on your face, a spring in your step and make even that loungewear you’ve been wearing for the past 11 months feel brand new.
