Re-work the classic trend with new colour ways and patterns. Checks are no longer reserved for the golf course, bring your outerwear into 2018 by matching your jacket to your trousers and making a full statement like Monse Maison at Milan Fashion Week or chose a more unusual colour like model-of-the-moment Adwoa Aboah in Burberry.

Add a twist to a modern piece with statement accents, whether it’s a collar, pockets or sleeves, adding an unusual accent creates interest. Louis Vuitton captured the trend perfectly with a statement collar and sleeve on an otherwise plain beige coat ensuring your spring look doesn’t need to be boring. Or perhaps you want to make a subtler statement? If that’s the case, then Givenchy’s pearl and crystal embroidered bomber is perfect.

As the weather heats up, you no longer need to be swamped in a long and heavy fur coat. Instead, bring your look into Spring with the cropped version. Even more style points if you pull off a colour.

Suit jackets are no longer just for men nor do they need to be in the traditional black/navy/grey. Sweeten up your work wardrobe with a bright or pastel version to grab the attention of the office. Blogger Chriselle Lim nails this trend in a fuchsia Max Mara number looking effortlessly cool at Milan Fashion Week.
