Dressing for fickle weather with temps that dip to as low as the 40s in the morning, but rise to somewhere in the 70s by mid-afternoon is challenging, if not downright baffling. Well, challenge accepted. To battle awkward, in-between weather, we matched spring jackets to their under-layer counterparts, resulting in 10 combos that do the job of providing the right amount of insulation to protect you from chilly breezes, but won't let you overheat. A gauzy floral-print blouse may be too sheer to wear alone, but with a black leather moto jacket? Fashion gold. Or, top off a white button-down with your trusty water-resistant trench, and you're set to weather any showers headed your way.
