Summer is so close we can taste it, but in New York, we're still dressing like it's February. What gives, nature? While our denim shorts, floral dresses and sandals continue to collect dust in our closets — and while we put our massive summer shopping trip on hold, maybe indefinitely — there's still an easy way to update your wardrobe of transitional staples with just one piece: a new jacket.
Luckily, there are tons of options on the market right now that reflect the best and the brightest spring and summer trends. Whether you're all about the wild prints that made up the Gucci collection, the sporty track jackets that popped up at Alexander Wang (and made up the bulk of Marc Jacobs's fall show), the camouflage toppers that the Kardashian/Jenner/Wests are all about right now, or something clean, chic and sophisticated, we've got you covered. Shop 31 of our favorite transitional jackets in the galleries below, all of which are available right now and under $500. We know, we have summer vacations to save up for, too.
