These Are the Only Spring Jacket Trends That Matter

The F/W 2021 runway shows have come and gone, and though the layered looks that graced the runways are accompanied by the scent of crisp leaves, we can’t get our minds off a different season: spring. Winter fatigue is real, and while everyone loves an autumnal glow, the hint of fresh flowers and soft pink palettes is much more appealing, at least to me. With spring in mind, we’re looking to the fashion set for inspiration on the season’s most important accessory: jackets.

Spring means transitional dressing, which means an internal dialogue as to whether or not a jacket is really necessary. The answer is almost always yes, lest you regret your decision come 3 p.m. when the sun is no longer shining quite so brightly. Your winter puffer will no longer do, but a light leather in bold colors certainly will. Not to mention statement trenches, oversize blazers and yes, vests (the shapes that are taking over outerwear this season).

Scroll through to shop the spring jackets that you’ll want to wear to get you through to the summer months where clothes are really just a suggestion anyway.
