Here are the top five spring jackets for ladies:

1. The trench coat

It’s a polished layer to complete your work look. A trench coat is a classic coat 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.

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 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.
