With the spring equinox just behind us, the temperature is bound to get warmer and the skies bluer as we head deeper into the spring months. While better weather may be coming, there will still be days when you need to grab a jacket before leaving your dorm, but you shouldn’t have to compromise your style for the sake of warmth.

Take the classic trench coat, for example. The double-breasted style offers a nod to military-style outerwear, while also providing a clean, crisp look to complement the most casual of outfits to a more formal, business look. While they vary in weight, they also come in different styles; guys have the option of choosing between the classic long silhouette that hits at the top of the knee or a shorter style that ends just below the waist. Ladies also have the option of the cropped trench or the long, belted trench, but styles for women are often available in various colors, ranging from bright reds and pinks to neutral navy and taupe. Another plus: many styles are waterproof, so if you ever get caught in a surprise rain storm, you won’t get soaked in your stylish trench coat.

Another versatile style for the spring is the utility jacket. This jacket’s name is indicative of its purpose, as it is a jacket that can transition not only from class to a night out with your friends, it can also be a useful piece in both cooler and warmer temperatures alike. Typically done in cotton, these jackets are light enough for the warmer days of the season, but when worn over a sweater, they can provide just enough warmth for those unusually cool days. Perhaps the best part about these jackets besides their versatility: the endless supply of pockets. With the ability to store everything from your phone to your wallet, this jacket is a must-have piece for men’s and women’s wardrobes alike.

We all know that April showers bring May flowers, so it’s best to be prepared for those rainy days with a fashionable rain coat. Both girls and guys can choose from trench coat styles or even anorak styles, a silhouette related to the utility jacket — and with the same versatile functionality as utility jackets. This way, a walk to class in the rain can be just as fashionable as one on a sunny, warm day.

With all of these styles to pick from, there’s no way you won’t look fashionable as we head into the spring months.
