It's almost time to ditch our winter coats which is guaranteed to put a spring in our step!  So Lou Lou fashion director Claude Laframboise rounds up some of the trendiest, must-have spring coats. Claude says, “Outerwear is often treated as an after-thought but a great coat can make an outfit and can elevate the most simple looks."

The Statement Coat

It’s more versatile than it seems. It can be worn to work to add wow factor to a conservative skirt or pantsuit, or it can be worn on the week-end with jeans and a crisp white shirt and also as a dressy topper over a little black dress. Treat animal as a "neutral" and don’t be afraid to mix it with a pop of colour!

Get the look:

Leopard coat: Ann Taylor
Colour block top: Bedo
Floral skirt: The Fifth Label
Black structured bag: Ted Baker
Black shoes: H&M

The Quilted Coat

The quilted coat is a staple of Italian sport-chic style, it’s been around for decades and is having a comeback. It’s a great layering piece since it is so light. You can wear it over a chunky sweater when it is still cold and by itself come spring.

Get the look:

Weekend Max Mara yellow quilted coat: The Bay
Pink polo shirt: Aritzia
Skinny jeans: Naked and Famous
Woven clutch: Aldo
Rain boots: Hunter

The Boxy / Oversized Coat

It’s on trend this spring to combine opposite elements: dressy versus street style, for example. This coat which is "prim" in an ironic way works well dressed up or with jeans and booties. This coat is also a great transitional coat, since its cut allows for layering.

Get the look:

Blue oversized coat: Forever XXI
Printed sweater: Forever XXI
Jeans: Mavi
Bag: Aldo
Shoes: Nine West

The Classic Topper

Traditionally, bulkier coats allow room to fit over a suit, but what’s new this season is the slimmer cut. This gives this classic coat a modern feel and also it gives it more versatility as it also looks great with jeans and a sneaker.

Get the look:

Camel topcoat: Club Monaco
Printed shirt: Club Monaco
Blue chinos: Joe Fresh
Brown wingtip booties: Aldo

The Coloured Biker Jacket

Leather is usually an investment buy and we tend to go for neutral shades but a hot pink is more versatile than it seems. It’s a great transitional piece as it can be worn as a jacket indoors in colder months and as outerwear when spring hits.

Get the look:

Fuchsia biker jacket: Mackage
Floral dress: White House Black Market
Pink bag: Michael Kors
Floral shoes: Joe Fresh

The Dressy Coat

This coat is another example of mixing elements. This mesh fabric gives an athletic feel yet the cinched waist and perfectly flared skirt screams femininity. It’s an elegant option to wear to work or for a night out and even with a pair of jeans for a weekend brunch.

Get the look:

Pink Tartan white mesh coat: The Bay
White shirt: French Connection
Floral pencil skirt: H&M
Pink cut out booties: Nine West

The New Trench

This coat is the ultimate buy for someone who wants a classic yet an on-trend staple to count on. The pale pink shade is unexpected yet right on trend. Treat it as a neutral and pair it with black, navy, grey, taupe, bright shades or patterns.

Get the look:

Pink topcoat: Club Monaco
Dress: Club Monaco
Shoes: Aldo

The Leather Bomber Jacket

Typically seen in black this classic bomber style jacket has a modern athletic feel because it’s in navy.  What’s also new for spring in menswear is a strong injection of bright colours. It was seen all over the runways in jackets, pants and even suits. If you are not quite ready to embrace bright hues go for a more muted tone like these pants.

Get the look:

Midnight blue leather bomber jacket: Club Monaco
Sweater: Club Monaco
Red pants: Ted Baker
White sneakers: Aldo
