Help me find a jacket for Spring!

I am addicted to longish jackets. I have one from topshop I wear with jeans and converse, it's mid thigh length. It's very wintry. I am tallish, 5' 8, a size 12 /14. I cannot wear anything short or cropped or gathered at the waist. I want something to wear with the ubiquitous jeans and converse that is lightish weight and a bit cool. Think the Kooples on a Primark budget. I have a lot of leopard print and don't want any more but a leopard print long blazer is the kind of thing I'm thinking of.

I'm not sure if you want more leopard print or not. If you do I saw this in H&M. It's not very heavy so certainly more of a spring coat than winter

Would you consider a trench coat? I think navy or taupe/sand/camel/beige trenches look good with jeans & trainers/converse.

Esprit tweed?

I share your addiction - long jackets with jeans and converse.

Just ordered this

Just search for duster jackets and you'll probably find lots of the kind of thing you're after

Duster coats! That's right. I've worn them since I was a teen in the 80s

I love all of them confused
