How To Work Post-Winter Layers

With any luck, the snow near you has (mostly) melted — but just because you've ditched your parka doesn't mean we're in sunglasses-and-cutoffs territory yet. Before spring turns sunny and balmy, it's blustery and gray — which means we need jacket options that keep away the chill, but are still light and colorful enough to let us know that, yes, spring really is around the corner.
Ahead, we found six women who made 45-and-cloudy look as chic as humanly possible. Click on for pastel moto jackets, layered denim jackets, and the ever-elegant coat-as-cape — and rest assured that there's hope for your wardrobe, even before those sailor tees and sandals are out of storage and on your body.
