Stylish Spring Coats and How to Wear Them

You can always count on the weather to be unpredictable in the spring.  No matter what the upcoming season brings, these chic toppers have you covered.

The Trench

Why It Works: A navy trench has all the authority you need to pull a mix of shades and styles together.  Pair a minty green and springy coral combo in a top handle satchel and cropped sweater and repeat the hues on a romantic floral skirt.  Now you're as fresh and delightful as the season.

Why It Works: Get flirty with your blazer! The crisp white blazer neutralizes the graphic blouse and bold colored skirt.  Match it with a feminine satchel and suede pointy-toe heels for the ultimate ladylike spring look.

Why It Works: This time of year isn't about bundling up; it's about looking polished.  A stunning outer layer does that for you.  A statement coat doesn't have to shout it; it can whisper.  Go monochromatic with shades of pink, raspberry and blush.  Keep the colors soft and save neutrals for the extras.

Short-Sleeve Swing

Why It Works: Think of this silhouette as a new take on a sweater or cape and you start to see the possibilities. Talk about making an entrance- this coat practically sweeps in on its own steam.  Done in light-weight ivory wool, the A-line shape and wide, graceful sleeves lend plenty of dressy drama to a tweed ensemble.

Why It Works:  Hello, fly girl!  Originally made of leather for airplane pilots on a mission, these breezier versions let your style soar.  For a look that's equal parts retro and of-the-moment, pair a bomber with cropped trousers, a printed top with an embellished neckline, and a metallic clutch.   Lace up sandals add an offbeat foot note.
