H&M’s pared-down trench makes us feel a bit like a secret agent, even if we’re wearing it over yoga pants and a vintage tee.

Chinoiserie meets liberty print in this stunning printed jacket that looks as good with brights and pastels as it does with neutrals.

Wallis

This pale jacket blends biker styling with Guinevere-era detailing. And it’s a smart investment, since you’ll want to wear it next fall and winter, too.

Zara

Zara’s patchwork coat is heirloom-quality, thanks to the intricate piecing and crisp piping. (But we’re planning to get years of wear out of it before it gets passed down.)

H&M

Sure, this brocade coat is ready for the opera (or a formal wedding), but we also like it styled with skinny jeans (or, even better, leather leggings) and cute ankle boots.
