Spring weather is unpredictable. One minute it’s warm and sunny, the next it’s cold and windy (and sometimes snowy). That’s why transitional coats are essential for this confusing time of year. The right outwear will keep you warm and dry without sacrificing your style.

Classic trench coats are a must when it comes to spring dressing, and they have been a staple for many decades — think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Catherine Deneuve in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Olivia Pope in Scandal. In recent seasons, leather has become a popular material for light outerwear, while the surge of DIY and naughties fashion made the “small top big pants” silhouette more in vogue. Shorter jackets, such as windbreakers, shackets and bomber jackets, have become favourites among Gen-Z.

From classic trench coats and versatile anoraks to sporty letterman jackets, here are some of our top picks for transitional coats this spring.
