The Jacket


Perhaps you've already got a lightweight jacket for spring. But allow us to make the case for one more. One that's yellow. Because it's rare that a piece of clothing can be so many things at once. A yellow rain slicker is about as old school as it gets, and yet a slew of modern labels have crafted lightweight coats (some more water resistant than others) in a range of sunny colors as varied as the brands themselves. You can wear the jacket by itself with a pair of jeans and some retro sneakers or pull it over a suit for a pop of color that comes with protection from the elements. In short: It's a statement-making piece that says you know what you're doing.
