20 Transitional Jackets and Coats to Wear Now in Anticipation of Spring

As we feverishly prep our wardrobes for warmer weather, spring cannot come fast enough. It’s currently the time of year that inspired the fashion tastemakers to create the word “transitional.” Enter the transitional spring jacket: a perfect investment that’ll make you look cool but keep you warm when the weather is less than ideal. Lightweight, waterproof, durable and able to take you from rain to sleet to shine and back again, you can easily carry over transitional jackets into spring and early fall with the help of a little layering. Sure, it’s been less than a year since we first lusted after the winter coats we are still wearing, but during the awkward in-between season, you can still get excited about spring while sporting those bulkier, last-season pieces that keep the elements at bay. Details like drawstring fastenings, leather panels, luxe quilting and pops of color add style points while still being practical. Shop the 20 transitional jackets to find your new go-to topper while you wait for spring. Come on weather, do your worst.
