A new winter jacket can feel like a big investment, which is why it’s a good idea to pick up styles that are transitional between seasons to ensure you always look on trend but stick to budget too. Here are the jacket styles you should be wearing...
Combine two hot trends – the bomber jacket and the iron on patch – to create the perfect transitional jacket for 2017. A bomber jacket is lightweight but can be warm when combined with a thick scarf and gloves. It’s clean, crisp look also makes it ideal for embellishment. Head to a site such as etsy and pick up pins and patches in styles you love – there’s all sorts of themes and styles featured from Star Wars to Game of Thrones, handmade by talented illustrators and designers.
You can’t go wrong with a classic, and the leather jacket is a style that will stand the test of time. Popular with those looking for an edgier vibe as we transition into 2017, the leather jacket is regularly seen on the backs of celebs such as Kayne West and David Beckham.

Black is a safe choice for a transitional jacket, but a brown shade is also a good option and works well with fitted jeans and ankle boots for winter.
Puffer jackets are warm, waterproof and perfect for your transition between seasons. Opt for a longer style with a hood that will see you through the cooler months and look great with anything you throw on underneath. If you don’t want to go full puffer, a quilted style is a great alternative that is just as stylish.
Parkas with a punch
Now commonplace on the high street, the parka is no longer just for the outdoorsmen. Ideal for days with a chill, parka jackets with fur lined hoods are a strong look for wherever you might be heading. Opt for a style in a bold colour, straying away from the more traditional black and khaki, for a standout jacket that will get you noticed.
