It’s all about… the Spring jacket

Hello lovelies!

It occurred to me that I haven’t actually got that many fashion posts on my blog at the moment, which is a bit ridiculous because I am obsessed with clothes. I think it’s because beauty items are just more accessible and better for treating yourself on a budget (as you can see from my Lunchtime Haul series!) However, as there’s always something in the world of fashion that I am lusting after, I thought I would start to share these wish lists with you all! This time:

Spring-Jackets-title

I have been obsessing over finding the perfect, purse-friendly boyfriend coat/duster jacket/collarless coat to wear in the spring, other than my Oasis parka (which I genuinely live in as it has detachable lining and a big fluffy hood!). I just want something that can be thrown on, and dressed up or down, which will take me into the summer months when I can just cover up with a cardigan! This is why any of the above styles will do. However, it has to be under £50 (ideally under £40) so I can carry on saving for all my little holidays I have planned (read all about my plans here). Some of these options (I’m looking at you, Miss Selfridge, Missguided!) aren’t as affordable, but I’m still lusting after them nonetheless.

Spring-Jackets

From left to right:

Miss Selfridge Mono Duster Jacket £35
Miss Selfridge Floral Jacquard Duster £65
Miss Selfridge Crepe Duster Coat £59
New Look Lilac Crepe Pocket Front Collared Coat £39.99
New Look Pink Textured Duster Coat £29.99
New Look White Textured Collarless Coat £19.99
Missguided Oversized Contrast Lapel & Cuff Duster Jacket Camel £50
Missguided Hether Textured Tailored Boyfriend Coat Blush £60
Pretty Little Thing Hope Lilac Boyfriend Coat £40
Pretty Little Thing Lucia Camel Lightweight Boyfriend Coat £40
H&M Textured Weave Coat Black Patterned £29.99
H&M Textured Weave Coat Cream £29.99

I absolutely love all of these options, but the ones I definitely think are more wearable, are the plainer styles that aren’t patterned. My friend has the gorgeous H&M Textured Weave Black Patterned Coat, but I think for me I would love it in cream! The Miss Selfridge Crepe Duster Coat in Pale Blue is my favourite of the bunch, but at over £50 even with student discount, I’ll have to consign it to the wardrobe of my dreams…

When I get a coat, I wear it a lot, so I really do need to listen to my head over my heart and get a colour that goes with everything! I’m going to Leeds next Saturday for a shopping trip, and I’m going to treat myself to one of these (or anything else I come across!) just in time for mine and George’s anniversary trip away to Northumberland, although I may actually need to wear my parka more than a duster jacket unless we get a nice bit of warmer weather!

What are your favourites from my picks? Have you bought a nice spring-time jacket yet? If you’ve written a post about it I’d love to see!

Have a great weekend everyone :)

      I know I’d be the same- it would look gorgeous with a cream lace dress for a summer wedding or something- wish I could afford to get it as a one off! Glad you enjoyed reading :) x

      Haha I think a lot of people are on the same search as me right now! Glad you found one, I always end up finding one in the last store too! I will definitely be sharing when I buy one :) thanks Emily! xx

  • Great post – i was just looking for a spring type coat!
    My two favourites are
    – Missguided Oversized Contrast Lapel & Cuff Duster Jacket in Caramel
    – Miss Selfridge’s Mono Duster Jacket
    Both are a good price and i’m sure they would last a while – plus the colours will go with everything!

    • Emma

      Everyone seems to be on the lookout for one right now! I love them too- I think the Miss selfridge one could be a good one for me :) I definitely need one that goes with anything and everything!

    I’ve just started the hunt for the perfect Spring coat too! The weather is still a bit awful but any day now my winter coat will have to be put away. :) I love the pastel duster ones!

      Hey Jen! I know I bet if I buy one the weather will be awful for ages so I can’t wear it! The pastel ones are my absolute favourites- they look so spring-like! Hope I can find one in the shops I like- hopefully one of these :) x
