Spring is literally around the corner (that’s what we’re telling ourselves anyway) and after what seems like a three-year winter, we’re ready for sunshine and daffodils… and new-season spring coats, naturally. If, like us, you are ready to pack away your trusty black puffer until September at least (let’s stay on the right side of optimism) then the arrival of these chic spring coats and jackets will be a breath of fresh air.

A lightweight coat will work come rain or shine and is a perfect transitional piece to layer up or wear solo – and will make the unpredictability of the British weather that bit more bearable.

From Sézane’s ditzy print quilted jacket to Toteme’s retro-inspired car coat (it’s giving 2010’s Alexa Chung) this season’s offering is filled with chic subtle shades to add lightness to your wardrobe. Scroll down for our pick of the best spring coats to buy now, wear now, and for seasons to come…

We’re yet to find a Sézane jacket we don’t like and this Adixia quilted number is no exception. The French brand does boho nonchelance SO well and we’ll be wearing this all spring with light-wash jeans and vintage tees.

Leopard print is having a renaissance moment for SS24 and this RIXO car coat might just be pure perfection. Wear over mini dresses with knee-high boots or with high-waist denim and loafers.

A quilted jacket is a must for the chiller days of spring and this Wiggy Kit number is reversible to get even more out of your wardorbe. Fashion maths that makes sense.
