Hi Sasha, Can you recommend any badass, feminine, and office appropriate spring coats? And not too hard on the wallet? I live in New England, and everything around here is so plain jane and non-remarkable.  I want to be excited to put on my coat, not ashamed. S

S, just in case we don’t have the same definition of “badass” I’ve broken it down into a few different style categories to make sure I’ve covered all my bases.

If you don’t own a trench then you need to get on that now.  It’s a basic piece that always ups the style quotient. I’m a fan of a little drape and if you can get down with that too click here and here.     
The only thing that makes me happy about this global warming heat wave is that I’ve been able to bust out my anorak.  I wear the sh-t out of it.  And for something similar to mine check out this BEBE one.  Label snobbery aside, I’m loving the gold hardware details, the detachable hood and the slick sheen on the fabric.      

Capes are still a ‘thing’ and this one from GAP is great. I’ve tried it on and it’s damn ass cute.  
A blazer is such a good alternative to a jacket, and something like this tweed or striped one will add some flare to any casual get-up.

Going the leather jacket route is a no-brainer. It’s too hard for me to narrow down my favorite so click here, here, here, here and oh dear lord can someone buy this  for me right now?!?

I don’t know what to call this last category other than “jackets that are light and long”.  Catchy, right?  It that makes sense to you click here and here.
