Spring may have officially started, but that doesn't mean the weather immediately flips to sunny skies and moderate temperatures. In New York, the promise of a warmer tomorrow seems closer than ever. And while we're leaping at the opportunity to shed our puffy winter layers, we're also keeping in mind the unpredictability of March and April — which means: We're investing in transitional jackets.
In fashion, "transitional" is a holy grail term used to describe this sweet spot in seasonal changes that allows for innovation in styling. For outerwear, that can mean anything from a trusty jean topper to a classic trench coat and even the newer stepped-up button-down shirt, a shacket. And this month, Fashionista editors had their eye on this category. Below, we're rounding up our picks (and hoping they encourage the sun to come out) — happy shopping!
