4 Spring Jackets to Mix and Match in Your Wardrobe

An easy way to change the look of your spring outfits is by mixing and matching a great core set of light weight jackets. Spring jackets are easy to throw on and off as weather permits (no more lugging around 50 pound down jackets!), and add an extra element of style to an outfit as well. There are four types of spring jackets that will take you from day to night, work to weekends, picnics to dinners out, cooler temps to warmer temps, in good times and bad and in sickness and health. I'm getting a bit carried away there, but you catch my drift. Three cheers for versatility!





The Trench: This classic spring jacket looks best when paired with other tailored pieces. Wear over button-ups, light weight sweaters, and trousers or skinny jeans. Pair with heels, flats or loafers, and a classic satchel style bag.

The Soft Moto: I have a similar soft moto as pictured that I purchased last year from Lou & Grey. It is one of my favorites to throw on and go. To me it is a nice alternative to a blazer, which are a bit too structured for my personal style. A soft moto goes well with more casual looks, such as over a tee and with boyfriends.

The Denim Jacket: Ah, perennial favorite, the denim jacket. This guy gets voted "Best All Around" for spring. My favorite way to wear one is over a daytime dress. They also look cute when paired with a stripe top, black shorts and espadrilles.

The Field Jacket: The Field Jacket is the perfect weekend jacket. It reads "I'm ready for some adventuring!", and don't we all love to adventure? I would say this jacket is interchangeable with the lightweight parka. They have similar looks, and are usually made with the same materials and in the same colors. The only difference I see is that a field jacket is a bit more tailored than a parka.  These are perfect paired with denim jeans or boyfriend shorts, some fun sandals and a bucket bag!

The great thing about these four styles of spring jackets is that you can find affordable versions at many retailers. Collect all four and you can mix and match within your core wardrobe for scores of different looks! Do you own one or more of these jackets? What is your favorite way to style them?
