Loved by the fashion crowd, oversize shirt-jackets are trending hard right now, blowing up our Insta feeds and dominating at all our favorite stores. They're the perfect layering piece through winter and spring. You can easily layer one over a turtleneck and under an overcoat throughout the colder temps, and when spring arrives, you can throw it on over a lightweight tee with little effort required.

Nouveau Leather Jackets

Leather is one of the biggest trends for spring 2020, and this season we're seeing the fabric on all types of jacket styles. (Think beyond your regular moto jacket.) Fashion girls are particularly taking to leather blazers and shackets that exude a fresh sartorial touch.

Trench Coats (With a Twist)

Trench coats will always reign supreme as a perfect springtime jacket. They're chic and classic, rain or shine, and this season we're seeing plenty of updated versions with unique details and twists, giving the timeless jacket a contemporary touch.

Lightweight Quilting

While we may be casting aside our heavy-duty puffer coats, we still love a cozy and cushy layer to keep us toasty while the temps are still cool. Lightweight quilted and padded jackets are the fashion girl's answer. Spotted in all different lengths and bold colors by the street style set, there are plenty of lively choices to zhuzh up your outfits for the season ahead.

Fresh Denim

Much like trench coats, denim jackets are a go-to in our springtime wardrobes. But there are plenty of iterations this season to keep the fabric fresh, such as oversize silhouettes, longline belted jackets, and trendy puff-sleeve details.

Lapel-less Blazers

Blazers of all forms are unquestionably a fashion-girl favorite, but it's the lapel-less iterations that are dominating this season. They'll add a smart, polished, and elegant touch to your spring ensembles. Perfect to take you from desk to drinks in style.

Utility Jackets

From Stella McCartney to Max Mara, the utility trend was seen in full force on the S/S 20 runways, featuring plenty of oversize pockets in fresh springtime hues. They're such an effortless and easy option to pair with jeans, skirts, shorts, and trousers alike this spring. 

Unique Details

For spring, we're seeing a handful of head-turning jacket trends that really stand out for their unique and cool detailing. While these may not be your everyday jackets, they're perfect to add a statement touch to your outfits and will unquestionably see you through the rest of the year in style. Included in the mix are fringe details, high-shine fabrics, and puff sleeve jackets (all of which also had a huge presence on the F/W 20 runways). Turn heads in the toppers below.
