3 casual spring jackets I didn’t want you to miss

A lightweight jacket can be a wardrobe workhorse, and perfect finisher for spring outfits. Here are 3 looks with casual spring jackets.

3 casual spring jackets

It’s been my experience that the best transitional season styles seem to come and go in a heartbeat. Our weather’s been too sucky (wet/windy/foggy/gray) for outdoor photography the last couple of weeks. But I did want to show you these casual jackets I tried recently, while they’re still available in a good range of sizes. So I did a quick at-home try-on and styling session.


This is the Talbot’s shirt jacket I mentioned here. It’s very lightweight, has a little bit of stretch, and runs true-to-size. (I’m wearing the Petite Small.) I really like this one, which has a utility jacket vibe without being too rugged. It’s also available in navy and mint green, in Misses, Petite, Plus & Plus Petite sizes.

I’m wearing size Small in the sweater, and 28 in the jeans.

Trench alternative

Trenches are a big trend for spring, but if you find traditional trenches too structured or heavy, this Eileen Fisher linen trench might be worth a look.

Yes, I know it doesn’t look like much in the photo. It’s much better in person and especially in motion; the linen fabric has a beautiful drape and flow. The color is “cobblestone,” which is a neutral taupe. It should work for most Autumns and Springs, and probably some Summers could wear it too.

It’s an easy throw-on-and-go topper for mild-to-warm weather. The fit is oversized; I’m wearing Petite Petite. It’s available in Petites, and in Misses sizes to 3x, and also in black.

I’m wearing size Small in the tee, 28 in the jeans.

Easy blazer

I jumped on this Madewell blazer as soon as I saw it online. It was offered in both Misses and Petites, but several of the Petite sizes sold out before they could fulfill my order. So I took a chance with the Misses Small, which I’m wearing here. The sleeves are a little long, but otherwise the fit is good.

The color is a yellowish beige (not as yellow as some of the online images). This color is definitely warm, so best for Autumns and Springs. Unlike many Madewell blazers, this one’s not crazy oversized. It’s relaxed, but fitted nicely in the shoulders.

Misses sizes XX-Small to XX-Large, some Petites still available. This particular style isn’t offered in Plus, but many other blazer styles are.

I’m wearing size X-Small in the tee, 26 in the jeans.

I’m still debating on whether to keep this jacket. I really like it, but it’s also quite similar to pieces already in my wardrobe. I’m trying to avoid duplication at this point.

Do you wear jackets with your casual outfits? What style do you reach for most often?
