It's cold. It's warm -- wait, it's raining. Ah! It's windy. Dangit. As much as we've been touting spring, the weather is unpredictable, making it difficult to choose a temperature-appropriate outfit. A sweater might be too hot, but a cardigan not warm enough. Oh, the confusion!
But, this problem is easily solved by investing in a lightweight jacket. Or as I like to call it, an "inbetweener." The not too heavy or light material keeps you feeling just right. Here are four coats that will keep your inner thermostat in check.
♥ Women's Ruffled-Collar Utility Jacket, Old Navy ($40, pictured). Ultility jackets continue to be an It item. This one comes in charcoal gray or white, and has a great basic shape, with a cute addition: a ruffle collar.
♥ Drawstring Jacket, Gap ($40, sale). A little sporty and a little chic, wear this one over a pretty floral dress or throw on a hoodie underneath it.
♥ Amazed By You Light Jacket, Ruche ($39). A soft, light gray coat with an off-center zip -- trench-like, without all the fuss of a belt.
♥ Elbow Sleeve Jacket, Wet Seal ($21.80). A 3/4 sleeve keeps you cool, both literally and figuratively.
