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:


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.


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

    so funny that i read your post today. i searched up and down yesterday for a spring jacket during my shopping trip. i finally found one in the last store we visited, thank goodness.
    i love your picks. i especially love the seventh one. it’s gorg! i’d love to see what you find on your shopping trip!

    • Emma

      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!

  • English Rose from Manchester

    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
