Even when the weather's getting warmer, it's still quite cool at night. Of course you can wear a cardi or a wrap to layer up but you're just not going to feel as warm, dry or put together unless you're wearing coat at this time of year. Having the right array of jackets to top various spring looks is essential to pulling it all together effortlessly so here are 3 classic must-haves for every hip urban girl's spring wardrobe:
|Banana Republic New Classic Trench in Navy, $275|
1. The Trench: Perfect for the rainy season, often belted to accentuate curves and conservative enough to wear to the office or at evening soirees, the trench is function and sophistication at it's best. Choose classic tan or try navy for a more formal look. If you're lucky enough to find a breathable version that flares and hits just above the knee, try sporting it as a dress for a different look. Très chic!

2. The Denim Jacket : Your quintessential comfy casual topper for weekend looks and also an easy way to relax a dress or separates that feel a bit fancy. A light wash lends itself best to casual fare and works well with boho or athletic looks. A dark wash will present as a little more polished and can even head to work depending on your office environment. If a classic cut feels too basic for you, this is the season to pick up a denim jacket in a unique silhouette or with a print. Remember, denim is a neutral so it'll still go with everything.
