Spring is a confusing time of year for our wardrobes. Should I dress for rain and wind or warmth and sunshine? In spring, a girl’s got to be prepared for everything. The same jacket you wore on your chilly walk to work in the morning might be draped over your arm on the sunny walk back home. The key to being prepared for spring weather is layers. That’s why I’m sharing with you some spring layering outfits that incorporate different spring jacket styles for inspiration. Before the real warm weather arrives, drop your winter puffers and stock up on these 4 spring jackets that will up your layering game for spring!
1. The Lightweight Trench
Jacket styles come and go, but the trench coat is forever. The good news? Trench coats go with everything because they essentially cover up everything above the knees. I absolutely love this red tencel statement trench! To keep the attention on your statement piece, wear it with basics – layer over a simple white tee and denim.
2. The Utility Jacket
Salute to the ever-so-chic military jacket! It’s a definite spring essential, as it’s an extremely versatile piece that can be dressed up or down, depending on what you wear it with. Most military jackets, or utility jackets (same thing!), hit right above the waist so they work really well with cropped tops, like this tie waist button down. Pairing with white denim will make the awesome army green color pop!
3. The Windbreaker
Can you get any cooler than a color blocked windbreaker? This 90’s child says no. Windbreaker track jackets are not only extremely functional when combatting the chilly spring breeze, but also add a fun twist to any casual outfit. This retro windbreaker is updated with the trendy blush, white and black color combo and looks great layered over a casual striped shirt dress.
4. The Pastel Moto
Need a break from the traditional black moto jacket? Why not try a pastel one? Add a feminine twist to your moto jacket by wearing one in a spring hue. Nothing goes better with pastel than spring florals, so layer your jacket over a floral chiffon top and finish the look with black denim as a nod to the edgy side of your moto jacket.
