The weather outside the window finally allows remove the down jacket with a woolen coat out of sight and bring your favorite trench coat, bomber jacket, or all at once to the stage (rail). We will tell you which models to pay attention to first.
Models made of thick cotton with a small percentage of wool will not save you in winter, but in spring, when the temperature drops in the evening, they will come in handy. We advise you to pay attention to the elongated coats just below the knee - they will also protect from the wind. This spring, designers are playing with the cage with might and main - they create optical illusions and inscriptions from it, or they limit themselves to a goose foot with a tartan.
A bomber jacket, contrary to the fears of many, warms up no worse than a thick coat: a lining jacket and a sweater can easily fit under the voluminous structure. And in summer, you can throw it over a dress with thin straps or a top with bare shoulders. Many brands this spring have relied on the shortest possible models, but we advise you to choose something more authentic: a jacket that is too light, even in summer, will not save you in windy weather.
If you are ready to part with a large amount, pay attention to deconstructed models - two-piece trench coats with a ribbed hem, inserts and ribbons will be found this spring by Sacai with Fendi and Zara. True, expensive brands are heavily invested in patterns and materials, so their versions look more convincing.
The mass market pleases with the classics (look for models made of dense cotton that will wrinkle less) and a variety of textures - there is an imitation of gasoline stains, and lacquer trench coats that are not afraid of rain.
Jeans this spring have undergone the least changes. Colored denim and light-colored models are still held in high esteem, as well as the newly actual jackets with a tie-dye print. Around the last option, you can build a total bow - add a dress with divorces and a panama with a similar pattern to the jeans. Nobody canceled the classics either - a worn indigo jacket and dark jeans always look relevant.
The work jacket has come a long way, and today it again flashes on the catwalks and store shelves. The mass market cleverly cuts copies, but we still recommend looking for an original made of dense fabric with the correct set of details from professionals - Carhartt WIP or Arpenteur. An unexpectedly reliable version was a success for the Swedish mass market Arket, and a slightly narrowed version was for the minimalists A.P.C. We recommend trying on this model with the newly popular cargo pants or mid-length noodle skirt.
