Dressing for the Irish Spring

Amy Rohu

With the in between season of Spring upon us it can sometimes be difficult to decide what to wear while still remaining warm and stylish , writer Amy Rohu reviews the best jackets to sport this Spring season.

Daffodils are in full bloom, your commute to college is a little bit brighter and the evenings are getting ever so slightly longer, but what does all this mean? Spring time is upon us once more. Now, before you cast aside all your fluffy socks and cosy jumpers just wait, because we all know what the Irish weather can be like, one minute you’re sweating and the next you’re trying to take cover because of a hailstorm, or wait is that snow?

Whatever the weather at this time of year it is vital to have a jacket that’ll keep you warm, but not too warm, all while putting a spring in your step, because we’ve had a long winter and are ready for some sunshine. Below are my top picks to suit all tastes and budgets.

Starting off with girls we have a super cosy grey faux suede jacket from River Island, perfect for those colder spring mornings, the colour is completely on trend and don’t you know suede is everywhere at the mo? Also, the fact that it’s not real suede will make sure you aren’t feeling too hot. Up next we have a fab hooded khaki jacket from Miss Guided, this is timeless and trendy at the same time, plus it’ll keep you dry. Team this with ripped jeans and a tee or even a dress and tights, it’s so versatile it’ll go with everything. Finally, we have the cutest faux leather jacket from Penneys, again a wardrobe staple that will see you right through summer, the writing on the back is very on trend and will ensure you’re ahead of the fashion pack, all while battling the weather and saving you a few bob.

Now for some ideas for the boys, for the majority of lads being fashion conscious isn’t too important, however you can still be trendy without the need for a Vogue subscription. First of all we have a denim and grey hoodie from River Island, this is a great jacket to wear absolutely anywhere and will keep you snug without the need for a hat. Next up we have a simple baseball jacket, this one doesn’t even need explaining, it is the perfect spring jacket for any guy, regardless of his style. Finally, another classic from Penny’s, the simple black denim. This piece works great with a jumper for colder days or a tee for those warmer nights.

Happy Shopping!
