Fashionista's Guide to Finding the Perfect Spring Jacket

Are you more of a trench coat or light leather jacket type of gal? We picked the brains of some of our favorite outerwear designers (Veda, Confezioni Crosby, Gryphon and more) to bring you some tips on how to find and wear the perfect spring jacket for you--and came up with a handy little guide to find the best ones. We've scoured the market to find the best in five iconic spring jacket styles: the trench, the leather jacket, the denim jacket, the utility jacket, and the rain jacket (we already covered bombers, fyi).
