I am a convert to the “light spring jacket.” It still sounds like an oxymoron, and here in Texas we don’t have a lot of mild weather appropriate for wearing said “light spring jacket,” but now that I have one, I wondered how I’ve managed without it all my life.
I wore my Eileen Fisher jacket to and from Florida, while I was there, in the mornings, and even used it as a robe while traveling. I wore it last weekend to my pop-up shop and was pleased with having pockets to drop things into. I’m wearing it today, even though it’ll be in the 80’s. I not only love the look of the long jacket, I am now a fan of anything with pockets; it adds a level of practicality to any piece. I can even see myself embracing the “light spring vest” look over slim pants without pockets (like my Elizabeth Suzann Cecilia pants) so I have a place for Dagny’s snacks, and my camera’s lens cap, and no sleeves 😉
Here are some more of my favorite light spring jackets or vests by a few of my favorite independent and/or sustainable designers. Which is your favorite? Do you wear a “light spring jacket”? How do you style it?
