Spring is nearly here, meaning you’re going to want to ditch the parkas and puffer coats and opt for a more lightweight option. You want something that won’t cause you to overheat during the day but also won’t leave you shivering at night.
From denim jackets to rain macs, we have compiled the perfect guide on the top spring jackets for men and how to style them.
The Leather Jacket
An ultimate staple in any man’s wardrobe, the leather jacket is one of the most versatile jackets you can own. It is pretty simple to wear this piece dressed up or down.
A leather jacket is the perfect thickness for spring and only covers your top half, keeping you a lot cooler than a longer jacket. Leather jackets are also usually styled un-fastened, meaning there is little risk of overheating.
Wear your leather jacket with a plain t-shirt, distressed jeans and trainers for the perfect casual look – throw on a hoodie or checked shirt underneath your jacket for those colder days.
Create a more upmarket look by pairing your leather jacket with a buttoned-up oxford shirt, chinos and smarter shoes.
