15 Spring Coats For When The Weather Is Totally Unpredictable
Spring is here. But just because the sun is shining brighter and the temperature rising higher, doesn’t mean that you’re totally ready for bikini weather. Sure you’ve begun to pack away some of your heavier layers into storage, temporarily parting ways with your heavy puffer coats and chunky knits, but if there's still a chill in the air, you'll still need light Spring jackets. With unpredictable temps, cool nights, and a breeze that is just a tad too strong for your tank top and shorts, Spring is still the transitional season that requires outerwear on the near-regular.
But what kind of outerwear, you ask? Well, Spring is the perfect excuse to invest in some of the classics. The best of the best when it comes to seasonal outerwear can be easily found in the below five categories: the trench coat, leather jacket, blazer, tweed jacket, and denim trucker. And they're all surprisingly versatile. You can dress your outerwear looks up or down, styling the same spring coat or jacket with everything from a cocktail dress to boyfriend jeans to your favorite activewear set.
Ahead, find the best Spring coats to wear all season long, and exactly what to shop for every wallet size.
