Spring Jackets That are Made to Layer

Stay warm and look cool in these perfect lightweight layers for spring.

By Taylor Ness

Now that the snow is, hopefully, behind us and spring is upon us it’s time to stow away our puffy winter jackets. No longer will we have to layer scarves with turtlenecks, but rather light-weight jackets with your newest springwear. This season, prints, colors and convenience are key when searching for the perfect spring jacket. You want something that can block a chilled breeze, but still show off the trendy clothes you’re sporting. Printed Anoraks are very popular, offering a length that won’t leave your longer tops peaking out behind. Show spring that you’re ready for it with Anthropologie‘s floral printed Sketchbook Anorak, $168. For a colorful twist on a trend older than we are, we’re talking Military Jackets, there’s J. Crew‘s Hooded Fatigue Jacket, $138. But if you’re running out the door and in a lazy-day mood then Helmut Lang‘s Soft Double Zip Sweatshirt, $195, will keep you warm and cozy.
