There’s a lot to love about spring, but definitely one of the best parts of the new season is the warmer weather. Yes, spring can be rather temperamental when it comes to rising and falling temperatures, but we’re finally past the terribly cold winter days, which means you can officially pack your parkas and down coats up to next year, and bring back your long-lost spring wardrobe. That doesn’t mean you can go without layers though, as a light and stylish jacket is an absolutely essential part of spring attire.
After all, impressive the weather is notoriously unpredictable, and while it might seem like everything is sunny when you’re walking outside in a t-shirt or dress, remember you’re just a big cloud away from shivering on the sidewalk. Luckily, there are plenty of chic spring jackets out there that are ideal for this fickle transitional weather.
