Although it is just the beginning of February, with the holidays behind us, we can start to look forward to spring. So if you’re starting to get excited about choosing a new spring coat, here are some trends to keep in mind while shopping.

Trends for this year’s spring coats are all about colors, collars, and cuts. The good thing about spring coats is a return to color after the black, grey, or camel in the winter. It is finally to time to put some colors on without feeling like a parrot in the middle of the grey city. Don’t be afraid of pink or baby blue this spring, as seen on the Burberry or MiuMiu catwalks.

Another trend is a round-collared coat with a line of buttons, reminiscent of an early 1920s style. Another with two rows of buttons is also popular, similar to a typical spring trenchcoat. Acne took this early ‘20s trend further and created a nautical-inspired collection full of short coats with two lines of buttons or longer capes.  

Fit, suit-style spring coats can work especially well for women with straight bodies whose waistlines are not clearly defined. To achieve a better hour-glass shape, put a belt around the waist.

A fresh new option for this spring is the bomber jacket. It’s been featured in spring collections in feminine style with floral prints, in classic Chanel-like houndstooth print, and other creative designs.
