The Leather Jacket

An ultimate staple in any man’s wardrobe, the leather jacket is arguably one of the best 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 leathers with a plain t-shirt, distressed denim 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. Other jackets will look on in envy!

The Raincoat

Knowing the typical British weather is important when picking your outfit for the day. It is inevitable that even on the warmest of days, it’s going to rain. Be prepared by picking yourself up a raincoat (preferably with a hood) – a stylish yet practical addition to any man’s wardrobe.

Water-repellent fabric is often made with Gore-Tex to offer added protection on those typically wet British spring days.

A thin, durable raincoat is perfect for keeping you cool on warmer days and dry in the rain. If you pick the right raincoat, they’re very easy to style. You can also layer them up with a sweater or hoodie – the perfect combination for those colder days.

Pair your raincoat with slim-fit jeans, your favourite pair of Converse and a simple T shirt to keep it casual.

The Bomber Jacket

Every designer has jumped on the bomber jacket bandwagon this season. With a huge array of styles available, the bomber is an obvious choice this spring/summer.

You can get bomber jackets in a range of thicknesses so make sure you opt for a thinner one – ensuring it’s not too tight so you can layer more clothing if necessary.

Bombers can be worn casually and for a more smart-casual dress code. For everyday wear, pair bombers with ripped jeans, T shirts and trainers.

For a more dressed-up occasion, go for a smarter bomber jacket with black skinny jeans, a shirt and Oxford shoes.

The Windbreaker

A water-resistant windbreaker is a great super lightweight option, perfect for the spring weather and is well suited to keep in your bag as it doesn’t take up much space. Choose a bright colour or print to make a statement and to brighten up your outfits.

Wear your windbreaker with joggers, a simple t-shirt and trainers for the ultimate casual look. If you’re going for a more sports luxe outfit, wear your zip jacket over a hoodie with some ripped denim and low-top trainers.

Take your wardrobe from winter into the warmer months with transitional styles that never go out of fashion.

The Denim Jacket

When you think of spring, you think of light wash denim – Making this an obvious choice this season. The denim jacket is one of the most adaptable types of coats available to men. This means styling one is much easier than you might think.

A denim jacket is up there with the best spring jackets. It’s lightweight and versatile, and it goes with pretty much anything. Plus, they’re always in style, so you know you won’t have to worry about it going out of fashion.

Chest pockets make a jean jacket a functional choice and a raw denim finish can give it a more casual look. An oversized jacket gives a more relaxed fit.

As per our guide on How To Wear a Denim Jacket, combine with a simple white tee, dark trousers and trainers for a relaxed look. Or go for a more dressed-up look with black pants, a shirt and Chelsea boots.

Trucker jackets are perfect outerwear for your spring wardrobe as they are lightweight and have a versatile style. A black trucker jacket’s classic silhouette can be styled smart or casual, making it a great option for any man’s wardrobe.

A feature of some is a ‘Sherpa’ collar. This is a great way to keep your neck warm on those cooler spring days and makes an interesting addition to your everyday jacket.

This shorter jacket looks great with chinos. For a casual look, pair it with your favourite denim and some trainers. Try wearing your trucker jacket with a plain white tee and jeans for a relaxed look, or dress it up with a shirt and tie combo.
