With the ever-changing weather of spring, a roster of lightweight outerwear is essential to any chic capsule wardrobe. Our selection of jackets includes quilted shell liners from The Frankie Shop and The Drop on Amazon, as well as cropped trench coats from Cos and Massimo Dutti. While particularly nautical, a selection of striped sweaters was a highlight of the season.
