With spring just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about investing in lighter jacket or coat. Put your faux fur away because it’s time to don a parka and be unafraid to stroll around in the middle of a spring shower.
From pastel padded jackets to festival anoraks, we bring you our handpicked selection of some of the best high street SS17 mid-season jackets.
URBAN OUTFITTERS – Urban Renewal Vintage Surplus Black Anorak £59
We love this anorak, it’s perfect for an extra layer on a brisk spring day or to keep dry at a festival. It features a classic weather-treated black outer in a slightly oversized silhouette. With a front zip, side-entry pockets, and an adjustable hood. Finished with a drawstring hem for the perfect fit and a kitschy plaid lining. You can never go wrong with a plaid lining.
NEW LOOK – Padded Jacket, £45
It’s one trend we never thought would reemerge and be considered ‘cool,’ but padded jackets are all the rage this season and we have to admit, this New Look number has completely converted us. Whether it’s the jacket’s fit, or the pastel pink colour, there’s nothing we dislike about it.
TOPSHOP – Petite Borg Lined Coat, £59
At first when these types of anorak popped up in shops, we weren’t so sure. Now though, we want them in every single colour possible. The addition of the fur lining to this coat makes it a perfect festival jacket when the weather turns a bit awry or for cooler spring evenings. Plus, any jacket that pairs perfectly with some classic blue mom jeans is always a winner in our eyes.
ASOS – ASOS Coat in Cocoon Fit with Contrast Cuff, £66
If you’re on the hunt for something simple but stylish, this beautiful grey coat from ASOS is your answer. Whatever the weather, give yourself an extra layer if you’re dressing up or dressing down. Make sure you snap it up quick though! It’s priced has already been slashed from £95 and sizes are going fast!
ZARA – Water repellent parka, £50
Okay, so I know what you’re thinking it’s basically the green coat in navy, but I couldn’t resist adding it into the edit. This gorgeous parka comes with a hood with an adjustable visor and cord, long sleeves with tab and press stud detail. The front pockets are also huge and amazing. Zara, I salute you.
