18 best spring jackets for women in 2023, according to a very picky shopping editor
Rain or shine, these are the 18 best women's spring jackets you can buy in Canada in 2023.
I have waited months to say this — winter is finally over. Thank goodness. Now that we're prepping for warmer temps, it's time to ditch that ankle-length parka and make room for a lighter, more versatile spring jacket.
Now, you may be thinking: It's basically April, which means it's basically May, which means it's basically June; we're (almost) in the clear. Why would I need a new jacket? However, we live in Canada; thus, forecast-wise, we're never in the clear. Fickle weather is always on the horizon, so investing in a few transitional pieces wouldn't be a bad idea.
Whether you're a classic trench kind of gal, a fan of quilted coats or need something weather-friendly that can handle the occasional spring shower, we've rounded up 18 spring jackets that will check all of your sartorial boxes this season. For every style, budget and weather situation, read on for all the best spring jackets you can buy in Canada in 2023.
