The Spring Coat Edit

You need a spring coat. Unless you live in any other country except England, in which case your seasons are probably very well defined. But here we’ve already seen a scorching hot (nearly) start to March, more rain and frost towards the end, and sunshine again come April. Trust us, you NEED one.

We’ve put together a selection of the best spring coats we’ve had donated, that are simply perfect for this awkward time of year, and will see you through those rainy July days too…


This swing style slightly cropped jacket from Hobbs will smarten up any outfit. It looks great worn open over a statement dress for a spring wedding or christening, over a simple shift dress for work, and still looks amazing done up over jeans, a polo neck and bright accessories for cooler days. It’s monochrome colour means it’ll go with virtually anything, and what more reason do you need than that? Oh, yes the price; at £30.50 you’ll be walking away with a wardrobe steal, too! Head to our Marlborough shop next week to find this gem.

Jaeger Boutique

Who doesn’t need a classic rain mac in their wardrobe? This choice is great because it’s swing style means you can layer underneath it and it can be worn all year round. It’s light, showerproof fabric makes it ideal for springtime though, and this is one style statement that will never go out of fashion. From Jaeger Boutique, one of the most trusted British heritage brands still around today, this jacket is made to such a high standard, and the bow details on each cuff set it apart from the rest. Priced at just £39.50 we’ll be sending your future coat to our Henley shop.


Now believe us when we say this is one of the most stylish coats to be seen in this season, and is set to stay at the top of the fashion charts for a few more seasons to come. The Boyfriend coat. This oversized and slouchy garment says casual cool, yet, made in a cotton and linen fabric and finished to a high standard, it screams sophistication. Wear over dresses, jeans, your suit for work, heels or flats. Everything works with this coat – plus we love the gorgeous spring colour! Usually retailing at £295 this hardly worn jacket is priced at £95 and will be available next week at our Hale shop.

The White Company

It’s not quite a coat but it still made the cut. This 100% cashmere jumper from The White Company is so luxurious we had to include it. It’s lightweight but as it’s cashmere it’ll still be ultra warm when you need it to be. Perfect over a t shirt when you’re shopping – because how annoying are multiple layers when you’re trying to get some serious retail therapy? The asymmetric neckline has a nod towards this season’s hottest trend too, so you needn’t worry about accessorising too much, this speaks wonders for itself. Get over to our Wilmslow shop next week and find this beauty for just £30.
