How to Choose the Best Spring Jacket - Prepping for Warm Weather

Choosing the Best Spring Jackets for 2016

Budding leaves, birds in the trees, and yes: plenty of April showers. Spring brings both beauty and bluster, so your spring jacket should prepare you for whatever comes your way. While it can be tempting to bring a heavier coat along for chilly spring nights and forgo outerwear during a sunny spring day, a wardrobe is simply not complete without a functional, classic piece of spring outerwear.

What's Better for Wet Weather

A quality springtime layer should keep you comfortable and dry, no matter what Mother Nature decides to through your way. Leave the heavier fabrics of fall and winter aside, and seek a quality rain jacket that features a light, breathable fabric that will still stand up to showers and storms. Look for a jacket with a quick drying polyester shell and a cotton or cotton/poly lining to ensure you stay cool and dry, even in changeable weather conditions.

Whether you're looking for rain jackets for women or men, you'll also want to find something with a sturdy, functional hood. Prefer a more streamlined look? Try a detachable hood, or a hood that zips right into the jacket itself for a sleek, streamlined silhouette on cool, sunny days. A removable hood lets our women’s rain jacket provide you with the protection you need, without sacrificing timeless style. And pockets are more than just a pleasing perk; a reliable spring jacket should offer roomy storage for gloves or hats on those cool spring days or evening walks.

Design Matters

When choosing a light spring coat, you have the opportunity to select a lasting garment that will make you feel good and help you shake off the winter doldrums. While classic neutrals like navy and taupe never go out of style, it can be a lot of fun to play with brighter hues. A jacket in a vivid pop of yellow or red can make you smile even on the dreariest of rainy spring mornings. A bright, solid color coat pairs nicely with simple black trousers, jeans, or even a patterned dress in a complimentary shade. Using your outerwear to make a statement can lend some energy to your wardrobe without requiring a total closet makeover. In addition, feel free to play with texture or other fun details in your spring outerwear selection. A tailored quilted jacket can provide classic coziness and just the right amount of warmth, while the smooth feel of a well cut trench coat brings polished appeal to any springtime look. When selecting your coat, keep an eye to detail; quality outerwear means firmly attached buttons and snaps, cleanly stitched buttonholes, and reliable, attractive zippers. A well-made spring jacket is a pleasure to return to year after year, especially if it means you can stow away your bulky winter coat and boots!
