We don’t feel like wearing a thick winter jacket anymore, but it’s not really spring yet. So what to wear in the transition phase from cold to warm? Tikbow shows 5 beautiful jacket trends that you can’t go past in 2022.
This jacket trend had a heyday in the 2010s, but then disappeared from the fashion scene for quite a while: the bomber jacket. At the Fashion Weeks of the past few weeks, however, the sporty pieces were omnipresent again and still look exactly as we remember them: long, voluminous, with bumpers at the collar and hem, in neutral colors such as olive green or dark blue, and often a bit oversized.
While in the past the trend jackets were exclusively combined in a sporty way, now it’s all about contrast. Instead of jeans and sneakers, we now prefer to wear bomber jackets in a style break, for example with satin dresses, pencil skirts and boots. This turns the casual jacket into a real it-piece.

Trench is trend!
The former Burberry trench coat has become a timeless fashion classic and makes a comeback every spring or summer season. No wonder, since the cut and fabric make it the perfect jacket for warm days. Classically, the trench coat comes in a straight cut with a tie belt, wide lapels, double button placket, bold front and back yokes and shoulder and cuff tabs. The preferred colors and patterns are beige, khaki, plaid – nothing changes in this season. However, the trench color palette is expanded with pastel shades such as pink, lilac and vanilla yellow, as well as bright colors such as Bottega Green, orange and Millennial Pink. And materials like vinyl and leather. But material and color or not, the trend trenches all have one thing in common: the extra-long XXL silhouette, which gives the elegant coat a casual twist.
Jackets with waist belt
With all the oversized cuts, elegance comes too short for you? Then it’s best to reach for a jacket with an integrated waist belt. Usually slightly longer than hi-length and straight-cut, these uniform-style pieces use a tie band knotted at the waist to show off the middle of the body to advantage, creating a beautiful hourglass silhouette;
For the effect to work, the jacket should be worn closed, otherwise the whole thing is just a straight cut piece without that extra bit of shape. When styling there is t much else to consider, the trend jacket can be combined with anything: For a chic look simply combine a wide-cut pleated pants, loafers and a mini-bag to it. A turtleneck peeking out from under the collar of the jacket rounds off the elegant spring style. But also casual jeans outfits with sneakers or boots make the knotted jacket instantly a number more elegant.
Blazers are the new jackets
Don’t feel like investing in a Übergangs jacket? No problem, an oversized blazer will do – especially on the first sunny spring days. In terms of style, it can easily keep up with the other trendy jackets, while remaining true to grays, leather looks and check patterns, pastel shades and bright colors are also very popular here. And: XXL shoulder pads are now celebrating their comeback! Important on not yet so warm pre-spring days: style the blazer in an onion look so that you don’t freeze. Therefore, it is recommended to invest in a really übergro;en blazer, under which at least a hoodie or a knitted sweater fits.
Chore jackets made of tweed or wool
In addition to the penchant for blazers, this trend also emerged quite clearly at the street styles of Fashion Weeks in Paris, New York and London: short chore jackets made of elegant materials such as felted wool fabrics or tweed. Actually, the boxy cut trend pieces with the spacious pockets have been found more in the men’s department until now, but now they have received a feminine update with their shortened fit and new color palette. Fashionistas are breaking up the still masculine style with the most feminine pieces possible, such as dresses or mini skirts. The result? Somehow sporty, somehow elegant, but in any case quite stylish.
