All You Need Is a Light Jacket: 30 Chic Options to Try This Spring

The best lightweight jackets for women



The perfect date is right around the corner—one that's not too hot but not too cold, where all you need is a light jacket. References to Miss Congeniality aside, springtime really is quite idyllic in terms of weather and temperatures. Gone are the days of snow-filled skies and frigid winds, meaning you can pack away your puffer jackets and down-filled coats in favor of lighter options. Denim, twill, leather, and trench coats are ready to come off the bench to fulfill your outerwear needs. Say goodbye to winter layers and hello to sunny skies (with the occasional spring shower). 

Since we're not quite ready to ditch outerwear altogether, I perused all the major retailers to find the chicest jacket options for the season ahead. From Chanel-inspired tweed styles to oversized denim to vintage-looking leather, these jackets will keep you covered until summer officially arrives. To give you a head start on your spring shopping, I'm outlining the 30 best lightweight jacket options below—including the viral Zara bomber and Instagram's favorite oversized blazer. Happy shopping!
