Refinery29 Pipeline, 14 Perfect Jackets to Take you from Winter to Spring in Style.

Allegedly, the groundhog (his name is actually Phil) saw his shadow earlier this week. That means just six weeks till official springtime heats up. But even though mother-nature is sure to bless us with a few unseasonably warm days (like this Saturday in NYC), you can bet your snuggie that there will be just as many wintry days, too. What’s a girl to do? Grab a great-looking transitional jacket—one that has just enough room for layering but still packs a singular refinement all on its own.

To make things even more interesting, we amassed not just 4 or 5 but 14 great little jackets—floral blazers (just right over some cashmere or on top of a little dress in warmer days), long slightly oversized blazers (this season THE essential wardrobe staple), feminine biker jackets (an all-year going-out must), and more fantastic cost-friendly options that will make you that much more ready for spring, and even a little more winter, too.
