Springtime can be a tricky time to dress for. There are days where it feels like we’re not quite done with winter and days where spring showers are the least of your worries. But fear not! Finding the perfect lightweight layer for whatever weather the spring throws at you isn’t as hard as you think. We’ve rounded up a handful of spring situations and the jackets that they call for. Add one or two of these to your closet and you’ll be set for April showers, May flowers, lions, lambs, and everything in between.
FOR THE EVERYDAY
Men's All Day Every Day Jacket
This jacket may seem less than substantial for a spring day, but it’s made from Public Rec’s technical fabric that’s breathable for layering up but warm when you need it to be.
FOR THE RAINY (BUT WARM) DAYS
Columbia Men's Glennaker Lake Packable Rain Jacket
Throw this packable jacket on top of any outfit and you’ll be ready for whenever those pesky spring showers pop up.
FOR WHEN YOUR DAY CALLS FOR SOME LEATHER
BLANKNYC Women's Moto Jacket
To me, a leather jacket is the perfect spring layer. This faux one from BLANKNYC comes in multiple colors and it’s overly stiff so you can pair it with everything from jeans to dresses.
FOR THE ‘STILL KIND OF WINTER’ DAYS
Women's Barbour Flyweight Cavalry Quilt Jacket
There’s just enough poly fill in this jacket to keep you warm when winter tries to hang out. Its slim silhouette keeps you from looking overdressed in the spring.
FOR A WEEKEND STROLL
Women's Cotton Quilted Jacket
The lightweight polyester fill of this coat makes it the perfect thing to throw over a T-shirt without much thought. It’s also roomy enough to fit a thicker layer under come fall.
FOR A SIMPLE NIGHT OUT
Amazon Essentials Men's Midweight Bomber Jacket
The bomber is a great option for any occasion, but it looks best with a pair of trousers and a button down. It adds a bit of edge to a classic outfit for a night out.
