16 Jackets to Get You Through Weird Spring Weather in NYC

At the first sign of above-60 weather, your instinct might be to ditch the outerwear entirely. But don’t be that person shivering in short sleeves on the subway platform. These lightweight toppers will keep you warm and dry through whatever the forecast throws at you.

This Unexpected Jumpsuit Trend Is Taking Spring by Storm

1. Rag & Bone Belted Denim Jacket

Swap your regular jean jacket for a longer duster that offers extra warmth and some sartorial street cred.

Buy it ($375; $187)

Available in sizes XXS to L

2. Asos Design Curve Trench Coat With Check Splicing

You can never go wrong with a traditional trench coat, but one with plaid accents is infinitely more interesting.

Available in sizes 12 to 26

3. Ganni Double-breasted Faux Patent-leather Jacket

Swap your go-to leather moto for this cropped boxy trench that your most fashion-forward friends will envy.

Available in sizes 0 to 10

4. Rebecca Taylor Blanket Tweed Blazer

The name of this blazer says it all. The tweedy fabric delivers the same feel as a cozy blanket, making it ideal for days when you’d rather be snuggled up on the couch.

Available in sizes 00 to 16

5. Madewell Faux Shearling-trimmed Denim Jacket

It may not be quite warm enough for a denim jacket, but a fuzzy shearling-lined topper should do the trick.

Available in sizes XS to 3XL

6. Eloquii Long Tailored Blazer

Meet spring’s version of winter’s classic camel coat. It’s every bit as versatile and expensive-looking as your heavy wool version, just better suited for temperatures above 50 degrees.

Available in sizes 14 to 28

7. Kendall + Kylie Leather Duster Jacket

Keanu Reeves would be so proud. That said, if you don’t want to look like an extra from The Matrix, pair this trench with straight-leg, light-wash jeans, a casual top and easy white sneakers.

Available in sizes XS to L

8. Line & Dot Harrison Jacket

Part shirt, part jacket, the shacket is one of our favorite new trends in outerwear.

Available in sizes XS to L

9. Misook Plus-size Long Floral Space-dye Jacket

Not quite ready for full-on florals? This abstract blue-and-white graphic isn’t as obvious as other tropical blooms but still gives off a spring garden vibe.

Available in sizes 0X to 3X

10. Collusion Hybrid Bomber Trench Coat In Stone

This classic silhouette gets a super-sporty update with black and orange color blocking, including a vibrant zippered breast pocket.

Available in sizes 0 to 14

11. Anthropologie Quilted Liner Jacket

Even better than the ample pocket space and flattering waistline is the fact that this jacket is machine washable.

Available in sizes XXS to 3X

12. Gap Utility Jacket

Stand out from the pack of khaki green safari jackets with this lavender version instead.

Available in sizes XS to XXL

13. Asos Design Mono Dogstooth Suit Blazer

Yes, this houndstooth blazer will always look good with jeans and a solid-hued knit, but we prefer the idea of going bold and pairing it with another black-and-white print like stripes or polka dots.

Available in sizes 0 to 14

Co Edition

14. Standards & Practices Freya Velvet Wrap Midi Coat

This velvet is every bit as glamorous as a faux-fur topper but won’t leave you drenched in sweat by the time you reach the office.

Buy it ($119; $71)

Available in sizes 1X to 3X

15. Free People Golden Hour Fleece Dolman Jacket

The cozy fleece provides all the warmth you need when the sun goes down or if the wind picks up. But if you find yourself overheating, just unzip the front and the dolman sleeves will provide ample airflow to keep you dry and comfortable.

Available in sizes XS to XL

16. Violeta By Mango Faux-fur Appliqué Jacket

The faux suede has the same casual vibe as blue-wash denim but with a much more luxurious feel. Add to that a faux-fur collar and trim and you’ve got a topper that can be worn to anything on your calendar.

Available in sizes S to XXL
