Spring Coats: After 5 Style for Casual or Dressy Outings

Once the weather starts to warm up and we can happily shed our heavy wool and down coats, evenings still require a coat for most of the country. Beautiful colors like classic white and bold blue give us a much needed pop of spring cheer, and look amazing with all the colors of the season, as well as our neutrals and denims. Styles go from cropped to maxi length and play with unexpected fabrics like denim and crepe to create pieces that are not only stylishly flattering, but extremely versatile, so you’ll be able to wear them for casual drinks with friends, to a nicer dinner, or even over a cocktail or formal dress.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Thursday) when we are showcasing the best casual outwear for this spring season. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Trina Turk - Adelle 2 Printed Snap-Front Topper Coat
Trina Turk’s collarless black jacket, with the most amazing print of digital geometric color, is just what we were always looking for, even if we didn’t know it. The contemporary fit is easier than most and the simple a-line silhouette works over a dress or even a sweater, cardigan, or suit. If you are wearing simple jeans and a blouse for a dinner out, this coat will elevate your look. And it will work over a cocktail dress with poise, no matter the color.

It’s the subtle touches that earned this cape-like jacket a spot in our top picks. With the popularity of midi-length skirts and cropped dress pants (even culottes), a hip or mid-thigh coat just doesn’t hold the right proportion. The same is true for a maxi length skirt or dress. But the waist length and wider proportions look amazing with these pieces. The denim is deep and saturated, with a high quality finish – it’s not what you think of with traditional denim and can hold up to a dressier look without a blink. It has a rose gold zipper detail, a metal that is as popular as ever and pairs with silver and gold accessories, too. Raoul is all about sleek, contemporary womenswear and we’ve been fans since their international launch in 2010.

There is nothing like a motorcycle jacket, in a beautiful pop color, for spring. It just gets better with age, and is one of those staples you will always reach for when you want just that subtle tough edge to complete your look. While it’s perfect with jeans and a tee, we love dressing it up with a pair of wide leg trousers, a simple blouse, and your favorite heels. It’s contemporary, slim fit also creates a perfect balance to a feminine flouncy skirt or dress – very grown-up and sexy.

The color is beautiful and the price is amazing for a leather jacket. BB Dakota's contemporary fitting open jacket is the perfect casual finishing touch, with an easy drape. Wear it as part of your outfit AND as an outerwear piece. We love it as shown, worn casually with jeans, but it's just as fabulous with a chic black outfit. Treat it like the neutral that it is - you can wear any color shoes with this.

For a more casual night out, Banana Republic’s coated denim jacket is a great option. Denim jackets have made quite the comeback, but this one feels purely modern and grown-up. Since it’s such a dark navy, and it’s coated, there is no competing with the denim color of the jeans you might be wearing that evening. You can absolutely wear them together. And it looks so cute over a casual dress or skirt/tank with your favorite sandals or sneakers.

Sleek and edgy, this Tory Burch leather jacket is not only a fabulous sale price, but also a beautifully made piece. The cropped length and fitted, modern silhouette is fantastic over a dress, and with all the higher rise bottoms that are popular this season. The leather is so, so soft and simple, while the stitching creates a graphic striping that is timeless. Ideal for a date night or any time you want that strong finish.

Is there anything more classic than a satin trench coat? The gorgeous navy is even better than black in our opinion – no worrying about your blacks matching, but it can certainly be worn with black…and white…and pattern…and any color. It’s a color that truly looks fabulous on everyone. Via Spiga’s modern fit is easy, so there’s enough room to wear it over a dressy suit. It’s a fun juxtaposition to dress up your favorite jeans and a great pair of heels with it for a sophisticated nighttime look, too. Believe it or not, this dressy looking fabric is actually water resistant. Thank goodness.

Oh, the drama of this Alice + Olivia coat had us at “hello”. It’s fully lined, with a black-accented drape collar that hangs elegantly. It’s an easy fit in the body – you could stylishly close it with a wide belt, or just leave it open (as intended). Since most of us are not as tall as the model, keep in mind that this coat looks best hitting between mid-calf and ankle on the leg. Any tailor can shorten it, as needed. Wear it with everything. Seriously. This long coat makes a statement over jeans, dress pants (from skinny and cropped to long and wide-legged) or a midi-length dress. Unless you’re tall, it will look best with heels – but, hey, it’s intended for a night out.

The flared hem on the waist and sleeve of this neutral zebra print Nanette Lepore makes it an easy jacket to wear over an outfit – or as part of the outfit. The jacquard fabric has a bit of a sheen to the finish, but this isn’t metallic. The sand and grey combination are actually quite neutral, so when needed, treat it like outerwear over a simple blouse with black, white, beige or denim trousers – or skirt. You can see from the picture that it will look just as good with a blouse untucked, as it will when it’s neatly tucked in. And the best news is that you can easily keep this jacket on if it’s cold once you get to your destination. It goes up to size 12, so if you're size isn't available through the 'shop it' button, try Saks Fifth Avenue.

For a truly formal affair, this sequin and lace bolero is a timeless treasure. It can be so hard to find something to wear over a full-length dress, especially when you need just a little something in the warmer months. This looks truly elegant over any black dress, or as a finishing touch to sleek black tuxedo pants.
