You may remember that in Miss Congeniality, Miss Rhode Island declares that April 15th is the perfect date, because "it's not too hot, not too cold. All you need is a light jacket." It's incredibly satisfying when you're finally at the point where all you need to head out the door is a light jacket. But when it comes to shopping for spring outerwear, the perfect time is right now—not because it's finally starting to get warm (alas, we still have a few weeks more of this), but because some of the best pieces are going on sale.
A light leather moto jacket is frequently cited as a spring staple. They never go out of style (and aren't really beholden to trends.) They can be thrown over sundresses or layered underneath heavier coats (for when you got a little too excited about the sunshine but didn't check the temperature.) And they last a long time, which can help justify the investment. As stores start making room for a new season's worth of inventory, though, you can find that perfect leather jacket at a serious discount. Right now, there are options everywhere from Shopbop to Nordstrom to Coach. Need some more convincing? Check out 15 spring-ready leather jackets on sale to top off your #OOTD.
