Shop for Spring Outerwear

Inevitably, it is that time of year to shop for spring outerwear or jackets.  There are naturally a variety of different jacket alternatives for spring ranging from the denim jacket for the masses to the stylish light weight bomber or trench coat.

This spring, one of the biggest fashion trends is the Trench coat.  This classic jacket is available this season in a variety of different trench coat styles and patterns which if you are like us will make it hard to narrow down which one is the best style for you.  We’ve seen trench coats with ruffles, stripes, polka dots and other patterns, or even just simple solid colors like khaki or black as the basic styles.  The other variation is in the lengths.  The most popular look is a length that falls just above the knees and incorporates ruffles or added feminine details like buttons.   These jackets are truly timeless and with certain details can be brand new, but full of vintage style.   A good trench coat is really a must have jacket for spring and summer so every stylish shopper should have at least one in their closet.

If you are looking for something less dressy or more casual consider a couple of our favorite jackets that are perfect lightweight jacket alternatives that are great for spring or really cold evenings in summer.  Designer Zooey by Alice Heller features a couple of great sweatshirt thickness jackets in different styles like the Cropped Double Breasted Jacket featuring lots of buttons for detail and a belt around the waist which really keeps with the latest trend with skinny belts.  This jacket features a wide collar and a faux waistband underneath the belt.

Alternatively, Zooey’s Cropped Bomber Jacket is also a great statement jacket.  This jacket truly blends vintage and modern elements.  With pockets in front, big buttons, and a cowl neckline, the bomber jacket brings a lot of great detail to a seemingly simple jacket style.  Of course, in my opinion, what really makes the Zooey jacket stand out is the arched hemline in back.  This accent really makes the jacket.   Giving the jacket a distinctive look, this detail in back makes the jacket a wonderful piece to accent variations in lengths and layers.  We love wearing this jacket with long tops or even tank tops depending on the season.  As you can see, with all of this detail, it is easy to wear this jacket as part of your entire outfit for the day and as more than just a jacket you wear outside.   Again this jacket features sweatshirt weight cotton and is machine washable which is another favorite for spring jackets.

Each of these is a great option for Spring jackets, but there are lots of other alternatives out there and ultimately you have to choose the style that works best for you.  We definitely love the versatile options of the lighter weight trench coat and the alternatives of the more casual yet equally hip bomber jacket in lieu of the jean jacket that we have worn for years now.
