  • If you only update one item this season, make it a spring coat. In lighter fabrics and shades, it's the sensible yet stylish investment for any British weather!

    It is a known fact that you can’t survive a British spring without a savvy spring coat. Our unpredictable weather means a lightweight coat or jacket is the ultimate must have to help see us through all the weird and wonderful types of weather we have in this country. From hailstones to tropical storms to Caribbean sunshine all in one day, we never know what to expect.

    The only solution is smart layering, and that’s why a fabulous on-trend spring coat or jacket is the ultimate fashion staple to see you through the seasons.

    One thing to remember when always buying a coat or jacket is to get one that suits your shape. The best advice is to adapt this seasons top trends to suit you, not the other way around.

    If you’re a pear shape then something that tad bit longer in length will help balance out your figure, or if you’re busty then a cropped jacket will show off your slim legs and stomach.

    Meanwhile, taller ladies can carry off a long coat where petite women need a shorter length that won’t drown them.

    Another tip is to be brave and step outside your comfort zone when it comes to colour and prints. Spring/summer is fashion’s most fun time of year where women can express themselves. Vibrant reds, yellows and blues will brighten up an otherwise average day, whilst bold prints will help you truly stand out.

    Through endless searching up and down the high street we’ve managed to find you the top 10 spring coats and jackets that will make you not only look but feel fabulous. Scroll through our top picks below…
