As the weather slowly but surely warms up, we’re looking forward to shedding the heavy parkas and slipping into something a little airer. Here are the top jackets that have been forecasted to go viral and dominate street style for the coming season.
1. Longline Blazer
Women’s blazers have been evolving with time, and we’ve come a long way from shoulder pads. This season’s style comes in pastels and hits as low as the knee, mixing the worlds of blazer and trench, turning the suit-piece into more of a complete coat.
2. Bright Statement Leather Jacket
The black, oversized leather jacket with a biker feel has been a timeless style classic for years. This time around, it’s getting an update with a more sophisticated and bright makeover taking on more classic and less grungy silhouettes.
3. Fringed Suede
You’ll be the trendiest cowgirl on the block with this Coachella updated trend. Many are opting for brown suede with multilayered fringing on the breast, sleeves, and hem.
4. Cropped Puffers
Throwbacks to Spice Girls and 90s babes have us swooning over puffer jackets. However, the kind that hits below the waist often leaves us feeling like a shapeless marshmallow. This is a cozy transition staple that works great with high boots and skirts or skinny jeans.
Other textures have had their shining moment, but this is a homage to Coco Chanel herself. With chic detailing, millions of styling or color possibilities, this is an upscale way to wear plaid that doesn’t make you look like Kurt Cobain.
6. Colorblocked Windbreaker
Sporty Spice in geometric, color blocked fashion is “the lewk” for 2019, and we’re all about it. Even the girls that wear all black will feel swaggy in this artfully colored at leisure must-have. Makes even a leggings and sneakers look club-appropriate.
7. See-through trench coats
While plastic clothing hasn’t had the best reputation, this Matrix style take on waterproof trench coats is going to take off in 2019. Get it in a translucent yellow, or try a leather trim. Staying dry in a rainstorm has never been so quaint.
8. Utility Jacket
Utility Jackets are the perfect representation of women this year and their societal makeover. Sturdy, resilient, and tough as nails. Also, they have a boatload of pockets which is a dream come true for the majority of women across the globe.
9. Metallic Plaid
This is a trend that is oh-so-cool and filled with effervescent power. We’re not sure how many can pull it off, but due to its holographic aesthetic, it looks like a doable way to add some boldness, and a rare way to make plaid couture.
10. High End Fleece
We’re not talking about your dad’s LL Bean favorite. Fleece has gotten a contemporary (but still cozy) update with unique color patterns, mixed mediums, and wide bell sleeves. Perfect for an over air conditioned movie theater or a brisk evening walk.
