The next month will bring showers, brisk mornings and sunny afternoons, which is why finding a spring jacket for all elements is so tricky. Of course, you have your workplace-approved trench and well-worn jean jacket for the weekends, but there’s more to outerwear than those classics.
From a luxe kimono and feminine organza to printed bombers and moto jackets, your options are only limited to your imagination. These Cheap & Chic picks are lightweight enough to layer with ease, but substantial enough to keep the chill away, day or night. Though outerwear can be expensive, these are all under the $100 mark.
