Good news: The weather is finally starting to lighten up. Even better news: That means you get to buy a new coat! These not quite hot, not quite cold temps call for a topper that's lightweight but can still ward off a chill. Feel free to take a cue from Gabi Gregg (above, of gabifresh.com) and go for a pretty printed number, or shop from our picks below. Whether you choose a cool cropped style or timeless trench, these will give your spring wardrobe a polished spin.
The classic will always be a staple in your closet. Try one with a flared bottom, you get a flattering shape that whittles your waist and skims the body in all the right places.

A soft hue is perfect for Spring and works well as a neutral base. So go ahead and mix it with other colors that work well, like heather grey or aqua.

Who says this tough girl style has to be leather? This lightweight color-blocked version has stretch panels, which allows for a form-fitting silhouette while still keeping comfort in mind.

What a perfect choice for transitional weather! Pair with a cute floral print dress on those beautiful sunny days. Swap in a cool graphic pullover and jeans on those rainy cool days.

A crisp white jacket is about a chic as it gets. The key factors here are fit and structure. Princess seams ensure that you will get a shape that is complementary and not boxy. Visit a tailor if needed. After all, you should flaunt your incredible figure as much as your new blazer!
