Casual Outerwear for Spring

Get ready for spring by stocking your closet with casual coats and jackets. There’s an excellent selection of spring outerwear to complement every outfit, whether you’re wearing a t-shirt dress or leggings and a tunic. Spring jackets and coats come in all women’s sizes, including petite, plus, and tall. Keep reading to learn more about the different styles of fashionable spring outerwear.

Lightweight Down

A lightweight insulated coat can work for winter and spring. If you want a coat you can take anywhere, choose a packable down coat. It folds into its pocket so you can easily tuck it into a duffle bag or backpack for travel. These women’s coats have down fill and waterproof exteriors to keep you warm and dry, and they come in a variety of different lengths and colors to complement your spring outfits.

Wear a down coat over a cotton turtleneck and skinny jeans for an outfit that works for winter and early spring. Or impart ski-resort style to your loungewear by wearing a puffy coat with women’s joggers. In addition to coats, there are down vests you can wear with long-sleeve tops for added warmth and for a look that’s somewhere between on-trend and outdoorsy.

Fashionable Fleece

When shopping for spring outerwear, you can’t go wrong with a women's fleece jacket. It’s easy to layer over any top and you can wear it under another coat or jacket, depending on the weather. Quarter-zip fleece pullovers have a universally flattering mid-hip length and princess seams in front and back for a shapely look. The cozy polyester fabric has an anti-pill and anti-static finish, and it comes in colors and prints ranging from neutral to bold.

There’s also a stylish selection of full-zip fleece jackets, including those made with super-soft sherpa fleece. Or wrap up in a zippered sweater fleece coat that falls past the hips for plenty of warmth and coverage. Look for features such as a stand-up collar to cut the chill, and welt pockets to keep your hands toasty. Sweater fleece blazers come in an array of colors and prints, so you'll have no problem giving any casual outfit a dressy touch while still staying warm and cozy.

Versatile Denim

Jean jackets are a must-have for any spring wardrobe. They’re an enduring fashion classic that’s trendy for spring, and they come in multiple washes, including indigo and black. Another thing to love about denim jackets is the cotton construction, which is enhanced with a hint of spandex. The fabric is soft, durable, and machine washable.

Wear a denim jacket with a fit-and-flare dress for date night, or layer one over a white tee and khaki pants for a business-casual style. To make the outfit dressier, wear flats or heels in nude, patent black, or an on-trend animal print. Or impart a streetwear-inspired style with athletic shoes.

Rainy-Day Jackets

Women's raincoats are another spring fashion essential. If there’s wet weather in the forecast, tuck a packable raincoat into your work bag. Like the other spring coats, these come in sizes to fit every body. When it comes to colors and prints, you can go for a vibrant hue like magenta, or impart a touch of nautical style with navy stripes. Many packable raincoats are hooded to keep your head dry, and some have cinched drawcord waists to enhance your shape. For plenty of coverage, choose a raincoat that falls past the hips.

A waterproof 3-in-1 parka can keep you comfortable in multiple seasons. Zip the coat components together for insulated warmth when it’s cold, or wear the nylon shell on its own on mild spring days. This coat style has pockets for your hands or small items, and it’s versatile enough to pair with jeans, chinos, and skirts.

Quilted Barn Coats

Another versatile option is the quilted barn coat. They have PrimaLoft insulation for warmth and a plush feel, along with a quilted texture for elegant style. The water-resistant exterior stands up to light showers, while details such as a shaped hem and to-the-hip length make the barn coat a fashion classic for fall, winter, and spring. These coats fall between casual and dressy, so it's easy to pair one with jeans and a flannel shirt one day, and a skirt and sweater the next.

Spring Accessories

Style your spring outerwear with fashion scarves and other accessories. A knit beanie keeps your head warm and adds a ’90s-inspired touch to your outfit—especially if your look features a jean jacket and chunky shoes. Any casual outfit can be accessorized with classic hoop earrings or a stack of bangle bracelets, or you can go for a minimalist style with a delicate chain necklace.

Spring temperatures can vary from cold to warm, so it’s a good idea to have several outerwear options. Explore the vast selection of spring jackets and coats to find pieces that work best with your wardrobe.
