All The Spring Coats You'll Ever Need.




Hi Hi Hi. 

I feel like if I talk about Spring....it MAY actually happen for us.

So, Spring coats!! The one and ONLY thing I like about Spring and even Fall weather, is how creative we can get with our outfits, with coats, cute boots, and accessories. Otherwise I'll stick to sweaty, 30 degree weather, thanks. 

I've picked out some of my favourite Spring coats and shared what I think is pretty essential for Spring. I am also a sucker for coats, so I can get a little carried away...


1. Your Faux Fur Coat.



I live and die for faux fur coats. 

Especially this one. The colour and texture is just beyond perfection. Obviously, it's not something I'll wear to the grocery store, but its perfect for an evening event.

2. The Long Trench.



How classic is a trench like this one?! I feel like everyone should own a good old-fashioned trench coat. It's the perfect casual coat and you can throw it over anything. 

It can be as dressy or dressed down as you want it to be. 

You can definitely find me at the grocery store wearing this one. Haha.

3. The Short Trench.



K, you're probably thinking 'ummmm she probably doesn't need a long AND a short trench coat...' 

Except I do. 

Why? Because as I mentioned earlier, I am a total sucker for coats and it only makes sense that I have a short trench coat as well. 

In my opinion, they are very different, and can be used for different outfits/outings. Plus the material is totally different.

I know, I'm making excuses...sue me.

4. The Statement Coat.



I always think it's necessary to own a coat that you feel f***ing fabulous in!

Something you wouldn't wear all the time, but when the time is right, you bust out a coat that turns heads. THIS is my coat. It's super oversized and the colour is to die for. 

Really though, I'm so in love. 

Again, not something you wear on the daily.

5. The Printed Coat.



You guys already know I love prints. On coats, pants, shoes, scarves, you name it. 

Andddd, the obsession with leopard print in particular, is still very much strong. #CougarLife

You have to know how and when to wear your bold prints. A coat like this one goes so well with a little black dress. Be subtle with prints. They don't have to be so in-your-face. 

Mind you, you CAN actually do print on print, just be careful on how you do it. Two, big and bold prints are almost never going to work out. However, a subtle one with a bold one, may go well together.

6. Your Classic Leather Jacket.



There's nothing much to tell you about leather jackets. 

Everyone has to own at least one (or four if you're me).

It's the perfect casual Spring jacket. Can be dressed up or down, and can be totally badass when you want. Ripped jeans, combat boots, silver jewelry, and your golden.

Great post and awesome pictures!

I have a red coat which is my statement one, I guess; grey one which is my every day coat; black and blue leather jackets; green light parka (I think that's what it's called) and that's about it. I also have few light sweaters and a kimono-like something that's for spring/summer time :D
