Spring is right around the corner which can only mean one thing: shedding huge winter coats in favor of lighter spring jackets. Here are 6 kinds of jackets to wear this spring, with ideas for how to wear them!
Trench Coat 1 of 13
A classic trench never goes out of style, and this spring is no exception! For something a little more unique/trendy try a trench with leather sleeves, like I'm showing here. No matter which style trench you go for, try pairing it with a buttoned-up white collared shirt and a statement necklace for an easy outfit. Wear it with jeans as pictured, or with a pencil skirt or trousers.

Colorful Blazer 3 of 13
Blazers can be a great way to add some color to your ensemble, especially during spring months. Throw one over an all-black ensemble, or pair with other bright colors like a statement necklace and yellow pencil skirt, as shown here.

Military Jacket 5 of 13
Military jackets are incredibly versatile. (Check out my Babble post from September with 10 outfit ideas for a military jacket here.) For spring, I love the idea of a military jacket over a lace top, a sundress, or ivory jeans and stripes as pictured.

Motorcycle Jacket 7 of 13
My motorcycle jacket is a staple all winter long, but there's no reason to stop wearing it when spring arrives. When paired with a white or floral dress and strappy heels, this is one layering piece I'll be wearing all the way 'til summer.

Puffer Vest 9 of 13
Puffer vests work well in the winter over thick sweaters, but go for longevity this spring by trying a more warm-weather approach. Pair your puffer vest with a collared shirt (sleeves rolled up) and jeans or a pencil skirt. Simple pumps or ballet flats finish off the look.

Boucle Jacket 11 of 13
Boucle jackets (or "First Lady" jackets, as I like to call them) are one of my personal favorites. Under a heavy coat with boots they can be a great piece during the winter. Don't abandon your boucle jackets come spring though. They look equally great over a sequined tank top, jeans and cap toe shoes. Or try a sleeveless silk blouse and pencil skirt for work.
