Best of 2024 Spring Jackets You’ll Want Now

Seven commanding styles are set to reign supreme in your spring wardrobe. Shall we delve into the sartorial spectacle that is 2024’s Spring Jackets?

As the temperature starts to climb, here at SLH, we’re eagerly scouting the latest spring trends. 2024 heralds the triumphant return of revamped retros, effortlessly updated for the contemporary scene (naturally). Alongside this nostalgic revival, there’s a renewed emphasis on timeless essentials, plus a few newcomers fighting for space in our coat closet. Ready to dive in?


It’s gone by many names, the Chanel coat, the Coco jacket, and now (because nothing hits feeds faster than a catchy nickname) it’s being referred to as “the Cardiget”.  This short waist, fitted jacket was made famous by, you guessed it, Coco Chanel herself, who sported the look everywhere. Traditionally made of either tweed or bouclé, this is a jacket that’s sophisticated and unabashedly fem-forward.

Speaking of ladylike, this blue tweed version by Boston Proper checks all the boxes, including a bonus dash of lovely pearl trim that will look instantly chic with your midi, or pair with your favorite tee and jeans for a whole different character take.

Another strong showing is the return of the utility jacket for spring. Unlike last season’s oversized versions, this year’s utility jackets are following the trend back towards a more classic size, or in some cases, that 90s cropped look.

Case in point, this slightly cropped khaki version from Democracy Clothing.

Here’s some you’ll want right now…

Try to think of something more 10s than dark-washed, faded denim in a cropped jacket. Sure…we’ll wait…
