To distract us from the fact that this mini-heatwave we're experiencing right now is probably a direct impact of global warming, we're focusing on our spring wardrobes.
As temperatures reach a very cosy 17 degrees in February, we're shedding our padded parkas in favour of something a tad more lightweight.
Luckily, the high street was clearly watching the weather predictions, as it's awash with jackets to keep you covered but cool:
Zara corduroy jacket €39.95
ASOS DESIGN curve contrast stitch cotton jacket €52.54
Navy block high neck track jacket €65.00
Black longline duster jacket €75.00
Zara contrast stitch jacket €49.95
Bright Blue Suedette Biker Jacket €49.99
Monki oversized denim jacket with organic cotton in mustard €69.13
Blue Vanilla Black Floral Embroidered Studded Biker Jacket €29.00
Spring is one of the trickiest times of the year when it comes to style – especially when we live in a country that can't seem to make up its mind about what season it actually is.
But in saying that, there is one item on clothing that will carry you through the transitional season, no matter what the weather throws at us – a classic spring jacket.
It's time to say a well overdue farewell to our winter coats, and opt instead for something a little more compact, and to help het your spring/summer wardrobe off to the best start, we've rounded up our top picks of the best spring jackets on the high street right now.
Judging by the less than ideal weather we're having, winter has officially reared it's head.
That means more layers, chunky boots, and, best of all, new cosy jackets.
Whether you are after a snazzy new biker jacket or an on-point puffa, here are a few of our new season faves:
Pretty Little Thing PU Aviator €75.00, New Look Pearl Jacket €59.99
River Island Biker jacket €75.00, River Island Silver Puffa €87.00, Missguided Blazer coat €61.00

Penneys has come through this season, with a selection of the most delectable A/W coats we've seen in a long time.
The designer-inspired pieces look high-end AF, and we're struggling to choose our favourite style.
While this rainy day would be the perfect time to invest in a new coat, these pieces won't be in store until the end of August, so we have a bit of time to pick our trophy coat for the upcoming Autumn season.
Check coat €40.00, PU aviator €40.00
Brown faux fur collar coat €50.00, Shearling Coat €30.00
Slogan back padded jacket €25.00, Pink shaggy faux fur coat €45.00
YES! It is finally sunny.
We hoped and dreamed for days like this and now that they're finally here… what the hell do we wear?
Our fluffy coats and hooded jackets will have us sweating by the time we get to work, so now it's time to invest in light coats and jackets that will see you through the gloriously sunny months
Here are five of our favourite styles for this time of year:
Denim will basically see you through any month of the year. Layer it up or try the double-denim trend, and you'll never be stuck.
Yep, just about everything is coming in vinyl these days. This jacket would be perf for the chillier days during springtime.
If you're sooo not into florals for spring, try the military jacket. It will brighten you up while still having a grungy vibe.
Because, let's be real. It's Ireland.
If you want to wear something a bit more professional, this blazer is perfect for hopping in and out of the office.
