Women's Cropped Co-Ord Wind Waterproof Jacket - Blue / Purple

Berghaus

Women's Cropped Co-Ord Wind Waterproof Jacket - Blue / Purple

​Berghaus is a fantastic brand, and one to keep your eye on if you aren't already up to speed on them. Their super-soft, high-quality materials create layers of impeccable warmth you can customize to fit the season, and we recently got to try out a black puffer coat from the company that put other big-name brands to shame – and this is coming from a New Yorker, so you know it's a good black puffer. The material is breathable, toasty, and ideal for spending time in unpredictable weather that might throw a rainstorm your way at any moment.

This brings us to our first pick for lightweight jackets to prepare you for spring: the Cropped Co-Ord Wind Waterproof jacket in blue and purple color-blocking. It's a wildly stylish take on the popular 1990s multicolor windbreakers that reigned supreme for many years, but with a modern shape that allows easy movement for outdoor workouts or hiking.

Another bonus: It's on sale along with many other styles! Check out Berhaus' full sale section to see pages of items ready to help you beat the chill this spring.

Embellished Denim Jacket

This Bloomingdale's exclusive takes the staple denim jacket and gives it some flair with embellishments that strike the perfect balance of tough and feminine. We love the oversized fit and frayed hem that lend some 1980s edge, too.

Contrast Hood Raincoat

Jessica London

Contrast Hood Raincoat

We love a traditional raincoat, but this one has the added pop of a timeless houndstooth print on the cuffs and lining that gives an interesting twist to the neutral shade of this topper. The black version is just as fun and even a little more daring, so order whichever suits your personality best to stay toasty and dry this thunderstorm season.

UO Arden Faux Leather Western Fringe Jacket

Urban Outfitters

UO Arden Faux Leather Western Fringe Jacket

The biker jacket is an ultimate icon of effortless style, but adding fringe gives it a free-spirited, retro feel that simple zippers and belts can't quite convey. This particular fringe jacket conveys a hippie sensibility with harder-edged grit, set off beautifully by the floral embroidery that makes this primed for spring outfits.

Levi's

Light Blue Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket

This is it, the perfect basic denim jacket. The light blue wash lets you match it to practically anything (yes, even other denims), the fit is meant to mimic the "stolen from your boyfriend" feel, and it's meant to be worn to shreds, aka it will only look better as it breaks in.
