Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaInspirational Image

Now that warmer days are ahead, it’s officially time to start thinking about transitioning from your bulky, heavy parka and making room in your closet for spring-appropriate options.  From bold hues to oversized fits, we’ve rounded up the top outerwear trends that we can’t wait to get our hands on.

1.Updated Bomber

The Updated Bomber

2016 was the year of the bomber jacket, with fashionistas around the globe donning bombers in neutral and pastel hues. We’re excited to see that this trend is sticking around, only this spring we’re looking forward to getting our hands on a bomber that has more personality. We love this statement orange Ted Baker bomber and are swooning over its romantic print.



For those warmer spring days when you can get away with wearing a sleeveless top and a pair of airy dress pants, you need a feminine coat to match. We can’t get enough of this embellished, white coat and its boucle finish. Not to mention it can easily transition from the boardroom to après work cocktails.

Statement Sleeves

While flowy sleeves have been popular in the past, spring’s statement sleeve is going to take the trend even further.  A statement sleeve is loud, fun, and attention-getting and will instantly elevate your look.

4.Robe Coat

Bathrobe Inspired
One of the coat trends we’re most excited for is the laidback luxe look of a wrap jacket. This look gives us a model-off-duty vibe and we can’t wait for warmer weather so we can rock this bathrobe-inspired trend. Toss one over jeans to add polish to a casual look, or pair one with a slip dress for a boudoir-inspired ensemble. 

5. The New Trench

Oversized Trench:

Slouchy fabrics, big buckles, and extended silhouettes – this year’s trench coats are anything but ordinary. Our style advice? The bolder the better.
