9 Perfect Light Jackets For The Perfect Date

april 25 perfect dateIt’s April 25! Anyone who’s seen Miss Congeniality (2000) knows that April 25th is the perfect date.

In honor of this most perfect of days, we rounded up some fun light jackets to warm you up just the right amount while the weather is so balmy.

1) Pont des Arts Picnic Coat, $79.99 via Modclothlight modcloth jacket

This hooded jacket has the most adorable details–just look at those pockets and the little roll-up sleeves! That gingham is sweet enough to add a little preciousness to any outfit.

2) Outbound Jacket, $98 via Madewelllight jacket

This sleek take on a traditional army jacket is both polished and tough. You can wear it with a cutsey dress and ballet flats or badass boots and jeans. 

3) Chambray Blazer, $89.99 via LoftimageServiceThe fabric makes this the least stuffy blazer of all time. Plus, chambray goes with literally everything. It’s corny to say, but this piece can be taken from daytime to nighttime flawlessly.

4) DKNY Short Hooded Trench, $129 via Blueflylight trench

Khaki trench coats are a classic staple garment for a reason. This one is extra supreme because of that hood.

5) Rapid City Blues Jacket, $59.99 via Modcloth mod cloth jacket

Serve up late 90s playfulness in this girly jean jacket. Unlike grungier jean jackets, this one has a tight fit and dark wash that make it versatile and adult.

6) Leather Moto Jacket, $330 via Nordstrom

7) Drapey Longline Kimono, $103.48 via ASOSlight kimono

Kimonos are about to be everywhere. They look great and are extremely comfy. Any outfit looks more put together and fashionable when topped with a kimono.

8) The Fast Times Reversible Bomber Jacket, $82 via Karmalooplight jacket obey

You can have it all with a reversible jacket. One side has a punchy and unusual floral print, the other a mellow solid. Typically, I avoid any clothing that isn’t black or grey, but I’m drooling over this wild garment.

9) Buzzword Blazer, $68 via Nasty Gallight jacket

Everything about this jacket is perfect. The cobalt color, the big lapels, the structure, the length–it’s a statement piece that isn’t over the top. Who knew shoulder pads could look so fresh?

    The thing is that I seriously need to buy a light jacket. I’ve been wearing your sweater at the office (I’M SORRY AND I <3 YOU) and my winter coat everywhere else. :( So I appreciate this shopping guide and so do these stores because now I'm all like:

    I’m totally wearing the outbound jacket right now.

    All super cute, but some more affordable options would be nice to see. A $29 dollar H&M jacket can be just as cute as a pricier one! Being a poor, jacket-less college student requires frugality. :/
