As winter fades slowly into spring — a little too slowly for our liking — a wardrobe that can cope with changeable weather conditions is required. When it comes to outerwear, tepid temperatures and the ever-present threat of rain equal transitional jackets.

Durability and insulation, while still being lightweight enough to zip off and pop in a bag, are the required characteristics here. And below you'll find a host of pieces that tick those boxes.

The beauty of every single one of the jackets below lies in its adaptability — easily styled, no matter what the event. Perfect for the time of year when fits are in constant flux.

Get ready for spring with the best transitional jackets below.
