I’ve got a warm snuggly parka, but nothing for spring. —expect for a very unstylish waterproof—

Tell me what you’ve got your eye on please! I need inspiration! 😄

Bumping! I've done down 2 dress sizes and need some inspiration for a new spring coat!

I've got a biker and a denim jacket which are my spring summer staples. Wondering about a khaki shacket but I really need something a bit smarter for work, I quite fancy a Chanel stylee boucle jacket but not sure the boxy style will suit me. Also like the idea of a blazer but haven't seen 'the one' yet.

I have a biker jacket in black leather from River Island.

It came out for a few days last week before the down jacket went on again.

Hopefully it'll get more than 3 days wear before summer. confused

They have faux suede ones there in really nice colours too. I'm caught by them every time I go past....

I’ve got broad shoulders, although I’m pretty slim. I sort of feel too butch iyswim in a biker jacket or denim jacket. I like the idea of them but gave up looking years ago.

I've got this - it's lovely with jeans and skirts - a bit biker but nice weighty cotton. Mint Velvet have got some lovely Spring jackets.

I got a twill cotton parka from H&M (I do cover proper parkas but I think they'd be too warm for me )

Got a 25% off a one-off order too grin

Safari jackets are on trend this year op?

It still feels very much like winter, don't know where all of you live, I'm still in scarf hat and done-up winter coat!

I'm still in winter coats, I'm going to get my blue striped blazer of the top of the wardrobe and work out how to clean it

I'm still in my winter coat too, my new parka is hanging in the wardrobe waiting.

The past couple of winters I've sailed about in a jumper while everyone else is in thick coats. I've been bally freezing this winter.
So either its cold or my inner furnace (menopause) has switched itself off?

Winter coats here, but last week I wore my leather biker (black, Whistles) and froze. I tend to wear it a lot until it’s denim jacket weather (indigo, Topshop) and I also have a fisherman’s mac with a hood (bright yellow, Warehouse). I would also like one of those khaki “shacket” type things, although the word sets my teeth on edge.

Bought a khaki shacket thingy from F and F clothing (Tesco) after seeing it on an instagram. It looks quite nice on but haven't worn it out yet because it's brrrr... freezing here. Also got a yellow thin quilted type jacket from Next. My other staples are suede jacket and leather biker from Mango.

Cant imagine wearing a thin jacket for ages.
I wore my aviator jacket a couple of days last week then it was back to the winter coat plus sheepskin gloves, scarf and hat.

I bought the attached camouflage jacket from Tesco last year and I have 2 AllSaints leather jackets but it's -1 this morning so my big Diesel parka it is!

I like that camouflage jacket! Which has made me think of the ones that I coveted as a student.

Camo jackets with patches/ embroidery on them. That’s what I want! The jacket I couldn’t afford as a student! 😂

What is a ‘shacket’?

Sweetheart Thu 22-Mar-18 16:22:58

I'mm off for a girls weekend away to Spain in a few weeks and need a light casual jacket for the chilly evenings. I haven't seen anything as yet so will watch here with interest.

I do have a denim jacket if all else fails but I need something i can also wear with jeans and not keep on the double denim look on me.

PNGirl Thu 22-Mar-18 16:28:13

A shacket is a thick shirt, or a thin jacket, usually with buttons rather than a zip. It's probably best described as something you'd wear as outerwear on a warmish day if you don't like a cardigan.
