The time has (finally) come to shed your winter layers. Say farewell to your failsafe puffer jacket and traditional trench coat, because it’s all about stocking up on SS18-ready jackets. From a classic Harrington to a steezy overhead style, here’s how to rock spring’s most popular outerwear silhouettes.

Over and out

If you’re a fan of streetwear, you’ve probably already got a few overhead jackets in your arsenal. A silhouette plucked straight from the '90s, whether in a color-block design or a rave-ready glow-in-the-dark version, the overhead jacket is the wavy, waterproof layer to see you through spring’s temperamental weather.

To sartorially transition into the season nicely, go for one in a subdued color palette. Then, team your overhead jacket with indigo slim-fit jeans to add a little contrast to your ’fit. On foot, continue paying homage to the '90s and pick a pair of old-school kicks.

Traditional touch

For decades, the Harrington jacket has served as the ultimate smart-casual layer. First introduced to the menswear scene back in the 1930s by Manchester-based company Baracuta, the G9 jacket, as it was originally known, was a favorite amongst golfers before it was later adopted by various subcultures in the '50s and beyond.

Now, a mainstream fashion mainstay, the Harrington is guaranteed to add a refined element to any get-up. Go for one in a heritage check pattern to give your ensemble a grandadcore edge, but choose streetwear cuts to make up the rest of your look — think side-stripe joggers, chunky-soled kicks and a cross-body bag in a standout color.

Laid-back layer

As soon as spring hits, it’s time to get out the striped gear. And what better way to include the staple pattern in your outfit than to layer up with a slick pinstripe coach jacket? Similar to the Harrington in the fact that it lies somewhere between sophisticated and chilled, wear one to add some structure to your get-ups.

A staple navy number should seamlessly slot into your wardrobe, so rock your coach jacket over a multicolored half-zip top for a look with some flavor. On your bottom half, carry on the hype for stripes with a pair of adidas joggers. And, to finish, don light-blue kicks to give your aesthetic a touch of tonality.
