While we can't wait for the warmer weather to finally arrive, there's one small factor that many are failing to realize about March: It's still pretty cold in most places. If you're one of those people who like to pretend that 65 degrees is downright balmy, you might be able to get away with just wearing a sweater of some sort. The rest of us, however, will be searching for a slightly lighter coat that's just right for in-between weather.
The key here is to find something that embraces a much more colorful season — so long, sea of black and navy! — but is still warm enough for those days when winter forgets it’s over. This can be tricky, but it’s not impossible. There are plenty of outerwear options out there that pretty much scream, “Yay! Polar vortexes are only a distant memory, and soon we’ll be complaining about how hot it is!” You just have to look. So, we did just that and found 10 numbers perfect for transitional dressing. Oh, you were kind to us, ridiculously warm, cute-yet-practical winter coat, but sorry — your days are numbered.
