Meet the coolest cover ups available to buy now...

Spring jackets are a key sartorial solution to combat the changeable weather conditions that we have to battle with on a daily basis (you know, you leave the house and it's sunny, ten-minutes later... it's a snow storm). And thanks to a new season refresh, oversized and frilled jackets are leading the way right now. But if classic styling is more your thing, we suggest sticking to the basics, like Next's new season blue trench - a style staple for any wardrobe.

Looking for something smart that won't date? Then Max Mara's spring offering is the way to go. The designer's powder pink double breasted jacket is perfect for day or night, work or the weekend - basically, it's the new classic. If you're struggling with ideas on how to wear pink, try layering the coat over a white shirt dress for a day at the office, or pair with your favourite denim and pointed pumps at the weekend.

Utilitarian styles have been spotted at various high street stores this season. Think khaki lightweight jackets and military-inspired cover-ups.We love Zara's camo style with cool fringing. We're styling ours with distressed boyfriend jeans, a fitted white shirt and a pair of killer heels.

And of course no compilation of the best spring jackets would be complete without our pick of must-have denim jackets. A 'throw-on' essential, these go with pretty much any outfit, and can be layered up with a hoody for when those balmy days turn into unseasonably cold nights. H&M is our shop of choice for purse-friendly pieces, while we'll be looking to & Other Stories and GAP for investment buys.
