The trend report: All the spring jacket inspiration you could possibly need

You may be tired of your puffy down jacket, but you'll be singing a different tune when you see this sleek version. Layer it over a hoodie and pair with leggings and sneakers on the way to the gym.

Ok, this one's a splurge but it is such a good one. This neon yellow stunner is such a fun take on the classic raincoat. 

J.Crew Collection Basket-Weave Toggle Coat

Shearling was all over the runways during Fashion Month, so why not get a head start with the lining on this black & white jacket (that also happens to be on sale). 

Tibi Shearling-lined Stretch Twill Coat

We love a good trench, and this deconstructed style in the color of the season (blush pink!) feels so right.

Zara Round Neck Coat

So maybe it's not totally wise to invest on a neon rain coat when your city is still going to be near-freezing in early spring. Enter this fleece-lined parka.

ASOS Cocoon Parka

Yes, we know, jean jackets have been around for centuries (OK, not really, but that's what it feels like). But, there's a reason for that! They're a classic wardrobe staple that go with anything and everything. This pretty blue guy has a vintage vibe, but still feels fresh.

For some reason, shopping for spring outerwear is just so hard. Maybe that's because over here at StyleList HQ in NYC, spring weather means it could be 60 degrees and sunny one day, and freezing rain the next. The ever-changing weather means our spring jackets have to be serious multi-taskers -- warm without being too hot, lightweight enough to stash away for changing temps, and at least somewhat waterproof to protect from surprise downpours or the occasional bout of flurries. Are we the only ones with this problem? We're thinking probably not, which is why we've compiled this handy guide for selecting your perfect spring jacket. All of the coats in this here trend report serve multiple functions -- they're sleek, chic, versatile, and best of all, they're right on-trend for the season. Click through the gallery to see them all (we recommend buying two of these styles just in case, but hey -- that's us!).
