Finding the right outerwear can be tricky for the Spring.
On the one hand, the days are generally getting warmer, brighter and drier - yet on the other there’s still the odd spot of rain and chilly evening breeze to contend with. As a result, the bulk of Spring outerwear trends for 2019 put functionality first, but what about fashion? You want the kind of apparel that works just as well slung over shoulders in the double digits as it does zipped up at night or caught up in a downpour. Not an easy balance to achieve, which is why finding the perfect spring jacket can be an arduous task.
The good news is that our coats are designed to work for all seasons and Spring is no exception.
Here’s three Spring outerwear trends in 2019, or SS19 in fashion speak (Spring Summer 2019), that are designed so you don’t have to choose function over fashion - you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
1. Menswear SS19 Trend: The Utility Jacket
The arrival of spring brings with it the return of long walks in the countryside - and you’ll want to be prepared for every eventuality. Pockets have proven to be a prominent menswear trend for SS19, with brands from Moncler to Prada untucking their designs to create a field jacket you could fit the world inside.
Our Utility jacket also blends iconic parka styling with innovation to create the ultimate field jacket with a detachable hood. Available in four colours - black, forest, sepia and tornado - it’s the ideal year-round outerwear option.
2. The 49Winters Outershell Spring Parka
Utility is a huge trend for SS19 but it’s not just limited to menswear. Traditionally a parka coat is lined with an inner layer and hood fur trim. However, our three-part ‘zip in’ design answers women’s calls for functionality in outerwear - in particular the 49Winters parka outershell.

The 49Winters parka is available as a stand-alone piece in both long or mid-length, or can be unzipped from its cold-weather components to adapt all year round.
When it comes to your Spring palette , Sepia is this seasons go to colour to pair with everything (as demonstrated by Flora Macdonald Johnston, pictured at the top, who was spotted in our Parka at London Fashion Week this year.) Or choose Forest for a more classic look (and was the 49Winters Parka colour choice for Sienna Miller earlier this year). Our men’s Mac is also available in sepia, navy or black, presenting a distinguished Spring coat that will never fall out of fashion.
