As much as we love layering, there comes a point in early spring when all we want to do is hang up our sweaters, scarves, and coats and throw on an easy, lightweight jacket. And every spring, without fail, our jacket of choice is the anorak. Versatile and weatherproof, anoraks actually shield you from the spring elements (namely, rain), while providing a perfectly casual and cozy cover up for warm(ish)-weather attire.
This spring, we’re loving traditional, oversize silhouettes, but we’re also falling for anoraks in refreshingly cool colors and patterns (think polka dots and colorblock). The best thing about these jackets? They’ll never go out of style–and you can just as easily wear them on a hike in the country as you can on your hike to the subway every morning.
