Spring is great and all, but if we're being honest, that awkward period filled with confusing transitional weather can be a pain in the butt. Will you be too hot in a coat? Too cold without one? Oh, and now you have to carry this random jacket that doesn't even match your look around just in case you catch a chill? Well, we find the best way to tackle this confusing time of the season is via extreme organization and some fine-tuned sartorial thoughtfulness.
No worries—we did all the thinking for you by providing five light spring jacket styles you'll be able to grab every time you face the aforementioned conundrum. From trench coats (duh) to some springy leather layers, the comprehensive list ahead will ensure you are ready for whatever weird weather comes your way that might require a light jacket.
1. A Light Leather Layer
Be it a trench or a leather shirt, this light outerwear piece is not only on-trend for spring but will also prove to be extremely functional all season long.
2. A Trend-Proof Blazer
Some trends climb so far to the top that they just stick. Could we call that trend-poof? Well, we're going to. Grab a blazer that you feel you'll have in your closet for years to come and call it a day.
3. A Pristine Trench
Trench coats are to spring as icing is to cake: You really can't have one without the other. If you have yet to invest in one, we suggest you add one of the below to your cart ASAP.
4. A Roomy Cardigan
Cardigans as tops are having a major moment this spring, but in terms of the perfect lightweight outerwear, a roomier cardigan is in order. Stuff this in your tote and you'll be prepared for chillier days this spring.
5. A Shacket
It's a shirt! It's a jacket! No—it's a shacket! Shackets are honestly the best. They are structured enough to look normal over most things, but are also cool enough to transform an otherwise basic look into something fresh.
