Ah Spring! It’s here. It’s time to shed the heavy coats and opt for a lighter weight jacket. Here are five spring jackets you should consider for your wardrobe. These will take you from work to weekends and in between.
1. The trench coat- It’s a polished layer to complete your work look. A trench coat is a classic worth the investment. In addition to polishing up your work wear, you can throw it on over jeans and sneakers for a cool vibe. Go for a trendy look in a bright yellow trench. While it may get some trendy updates with color and patterns, a trench coat will neve go out of style.

Two years ago I invested in a trench style that doubles as a rain coat. I love the pop of color on a rainy day.

2. Utility jacket- the best jacket for weekends. I was hesitant to get one but I’ve more than gotten my money’s worth. I even replaced my old one. A utility jacket is great with jeans but works with dresses too.

4. Moto jacket Moto jackets come in lots of lightweight options and colors that are perfect for spring. Go with a lighter color for spring vibes. Try a soft suede moto jacket instead of a heavy leather one. There are also lots of moto style jackets made from other materials like knit, twill and tweed that are perfect for spring.

5. The Shacket– The hottest new trend in jackets for spring is the shacket, or shirt jacket. Some love them, some have said “No way. I can just wear a shirt over a top.” I didn’t jump on this bandwagon when the shacket came out in the fall but they are growing on me now that they are sticking around for spring. I always find the look of a button up shirt layered over a tee or top sloppy on me, so I like the extra structure a shirt jacket offers. There are lots of spring colors and fabrics available.
