Spring was basically designed to throw all outerwear lovers into deep confusion after the certainty of winter. Just as we get accustomed to the temperatures and the fact that we need to wear X amount of layers, spring arrives to completely disorientate us. Some days are hot like summer, others cold like winter, and sometimes it’s even kinda autumnal. So what the hell are you meant to wear?
Lightweight jackets. If you ask us, this is th lowest common denominator amongst the thousands of great spring jackets. You need to be adaptable, which means that super-heavyweight down fillings and wools are out of the picture.
Below, with the help of Luisaviaroma, we’ve rounded up 10 spring jackets for men and women from names like Jacquemus, Our Legacy, Burberry, and more.
Shop 10 of the best spring jackets for confusing weather below.
Our Legacy Evening Coach Jacket
Our Legacy really can do no wrong in our eyes. The Stockholm-founded label is on a mission to dominate menswear and it's going pretty well. This Evening Coach Jacket will certainly be a big feature in our spring jackets lineup.
Jacquemus La Chemise Boulanger
Simon Porte Jacquemus is a master when it comes to incorporating workwear codes into luxury-style packages. La Chemise Boulanger takes after bakers' uniforms. The slightly padded overshirt is a dream for layering and its neutral hue is perfectly spring-ready.
Max Mara GreenBox Jacket
Versatility is the name of the game for spring jackets. The Greenbox Jacket by Max Mara has it in abundance with a reversible build that's water-repellant on both of the understated sides.
Stone Island Soft Shell Jacket
Stone Island is a master of technical builds. The triple-layer soft shell of this jacket is breathable and weatherproof.
Arc'teryx Atom LT Jacket
If you're on the hunt for a spring rain jacket in particular, then look no further than the inimitable Arc'teryx Atom LT Jacket. This trusty design is favored by gorp kings and actual mountain climbers alike.
Burberry Colbury Striped Wool Jacket
Some days in spring can feel like you've taken an accidental return journey back to winter. For those days, opt for this wool jacket from Burberry which features a striped finish.
Moncler Grimpeurs Archivio Jacket
Lightweight and wildly utilitarian, the Moncler Grimpeurs jacket has been pulled from the label's long archive; an archive that positioned Moncler at the pinnacle of outerwear, by the way.
Off-White™ Embroidered Varsity Jacket
Varsity jackets are a huge staple when it comes to spring outerwear. They're nicely chunky with leather arms and a wool torso, but they're super versatile in terms of styling.
Marni Bomber Jacket
Marni usually opts for a bolder aesthetic than this incongruously vintage-styled bomber jacket. The wool body complements leather arms like a classic Letterman Jacket.
Miharayasuhiro Bomber Jacket
Much less classic than the Marni bomber, this iteration from Miharayasuhiro is seemingly made from the remnants of ancient liner jackets, with cuffs and necklines hanging from seams. It embodies Miharayasuhiro's mastery of that distressed, DIY look that so many others try to execute.
