Spring is right around the corner and you all know what that means. 😉 No. More. Parkas. Say it with me!!! I, for one, cannot wait to shed my heavy winter coats for the light and fresh jackets of spring. Mild weather is coming our way people!
We as Vancouverites know that with April flowers comes May SHOWERS. However, it can be tough to find the perfect jacket that is both functional and stylish. I’ve put together a list of my jacket MUST-HAVES for this spring, as well as some spring trends that I just need to let you in on.
Spring Trends of 2018
Shine as bright as a tulip this Spring! I’m loving jackets that are a fire-engine red, sunshine yellow, or a saturated orange. For those of us who are happier in neutrals, I’m a fan of this dove grey piece. For something bold, nothing brings brightness to a rainy day like this equestrian style bright red riding coat. Both pieces are from Noel Asmar.
Although Noel Asmar designs some of my favourite equestrian apparel, they sell items for EVERYBODY. Personally, I cannot get over the beauty of their italian leather handbags and cashmere sweaters. Each of their pieces feel so LUXURIOUS to the touch.
Channel your inner prepster with an adorable checkered patterned coat. Although checkers can be bold, I love how versatile they are. Checkers can be worn as a statement piece, or a neutral! It’s all about your accessories. 😉 I love this Zara coat here. I always check out Zara for fun prints and unique and affordable pieces.
This spring we are bringing on the Easter egg colours! Dusty rose, robin’s egg blue, and muted lilac are just a FEW shades that are hot this season. I’m loving this baby pink trench coat from RW&CO. RW&CO creates so many beautiful and timeless pieces.
Baby blue looks AMAZING on everyone – especially you blue-eyed lovelies! 😉 Check out this amazing jacket from H&M.
Natalie’s Spring Shopping Tips:
- If you’re living in a rainy climate – like Vancouver – pick materials that are water resistant. You’ll feel SO much better when you arrive at your destination dry.
- Invest in a QUALITY jacket like the kind Noel Asmar offers. When you invest in your own personal style, you’ll have a durable wardrobe staple that doesn’t need to be replaced.
- Choose a fun pastel – or a bright colour – to add a POP to your wardrobe. If you’re uncertain about investing in a statement jacket, check out Forever 21 for affordable options. It’s an awesome way to try out a few styles before committing to a more expensive piece.
- FOLLOW THE SALES. When quality brands have blowout sales, snag your best pieces then. It’s the best way to keep you – and your wallet – happy.
Speaking of SALE………. One of my favourite brands, Noel Asmar, is helping ALL of us to get a bounce back in our step this spring with a HUGE Warehouse Sale. You guys know I like to keep you in the loop….. So here are the SALE details 😉
I love how Noel Asmar is committed to capturing the essence of spring with light materials and beautiful tones. These stunning pieces will surely help you shed your winter blahs. Grab your favourite sneakers (to run towards the amazing deals, of course) and meet me there!
When shopping, remember to choose pieces that suit YOU and your lifestyle. I hope you all have an amazing time putting together your spring wardrobe.
