In the 2000 film classic Miss Congeniality, a character named Cheryl Fraiser is asked to describe her perfect date. She replies, “I’d have to say April 25, because it’s not too hot and not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.” Have truer words ever been spoken? There’s nothing quite like being able to bid our winter puffers farewell and enjoy milder temperatures before the summer heat creeps in. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite jackets for the spring season that would make Cheryl proud.
90s Trucker Jacket
If you invest in only one jacket for spring, please make it a good denim jacket. We love this medium-wash 90s trucker jacket from Levi’s that can easily be dressed up or down. Pair it with a sundress and sandals for a cute brunch look or throw it over leggings and sneakers before you head to the gym.
Say it with us: Every season can be corduroy season. Some people may consider corduroy more fitting for fall, but a pastel color makes the material much more versatile. This pink corduroy jacket from Urban Outfitters is perfect for spring, especially with its cropped fit.
If you’re the type of person who never wants to part with your puffer jacket at the end of winter, then consider trading it in for a quilted jacket. You’ll find the same comfort and coziness in a quilted coat that you do in a puffer, but this one is much lighter weight and easier to pack for weekends away.
Name an item that screams “spring” more than a raincoat in a gingham print. This coat is a perfect example of a piece of clothing that can be both practical and fashionable. One of our favorite parts is the flap pockets in the front to protect your phone and other essentials from the rain.
Is elevated sporty a thing? If so, this coat is it. The recycled wool bomber from Everlane is a trendy twist on your favorite letterman jacket from back in the day. With its neutral cream and camel colors, the options for what to pair it with are essentially endless.
There’s nothing like getting a compliment on your new jacket and being able to tell people you also earned Cash Back on it. Not only are you fashion forward, but you’re also a savvy shopper — two badges to wear on your new coat with pride. Happy springtime shopping!
