Lighten Up: Jackets, Coats and Slickers for Spring


Guess what?... Spring has arrived! (Well, at least technically speaking.) Yes, the forecast still calls for snow in New York City (ahhh!), but Mother Nature will catch up with the calendar soon enough. At least I think.... And hope. And beg. Pretty please, Mr. Meterologist.

It's not only the weather. I mean, yes, I've had it with the bitter cold temps, but I'm also soover wearing puffy, bulky jackets and itchy, wooly winter coats. Sure, they keep me cozy and warm, but they're also starting to cramp my seasonal style! (Personal comfort is so over-rated.)

I'm ready to embrace spring--despite what the weather channel says--with lighter, brighter, and breezier coverups. I'm talking denim jackets, sweater-knit bombers, khaki trench coats, and sleek slickers for rainy April days.

To celebrate spring (and coax it out of its shell!), I've rounded up a few cool and on-trend jackets, coats, and slickers I'm coveting in various price points. I'm officially ditching my winter garb, and lightening up with one or two of these fab finds. Feel free to join me... I'll be the crazy girl wearing a chambray bomber jacket in the upcoming snow storm. (Take that, Weather! I can be just as stubborn as you!)
