At this time of year, a good mac really is a girl’s best friend. It’s the classic coat that never goes out of style and somehow manages to look new and fresh every season. It’s the must-have coat to see you through this unpredictable weather, which will no doubt return the other side of summer, making it a real all year round wardrobe staple. It’s made our Top Ten Wardrobe Must Haves list, which you can see at Littlewoods.com right now.
So with this in mind, and with a whole new raft of shapes, colours and styles on our radar, we thought it was about time we brought you some of our favourite macs for Spring.
This South Stripe Belted Mac is far and away one of our favourites, we love the monochrome stripes, the black pocket and cuff detail and the neat waist-cinching belt. It’s a classic reinvented with some 60s style, and monochrome is one of those trends that will forever be in style.
This South Pleat Skirt mac is really pretty thanks to the peter pan collar and the pleat detail to the back. We love this cute blue shade but it also comes in pink or black, unusual shades for a mac we think (well the blue and pink are anyway) but that’s exactly why we love it.
Probably the most glam mac we’ve ever seen, this Savoir Tipped mac does come in a plain stone shade with black edging, but it’s the animal print version we love. It’s a bold print on a classic shape, and teamed with simple jeans and muted colours it’s a real statement piece. We can’t remember the last time animal print wasn’t in fashion, so it’s a definite keeper!
Short and sweet
We typically think of macs being belted and thigh length, but this shower resistant double breasted one from Savoir proves macs can be any length you want them to be, and if you’re not into the whole belted thing a double breasted version keeps it neat and figure flattering. Or if you want something more relaxed and a bit fashion-forward, this South Swing mac is short and on the baggy side, but means it’s perfect for getting that ‘thrown together’ look just spot on.
