As spring comes around in full force, people opt for a lighter coat that can protect them from the wind and rain of the season. In the beginning, there are still cold days to get through, but, as the weather shifts, it becomes more unpredictable with bouts of rain and sunshine. This unpredictable weather can make it hard to know how to dress properly, but it’s always a safe bet to own a couple light and versatile jackets to get through the season. Lightweight coats don’t need to be expensive to be effective. Many buyers will opt to buy less expensive coats because they don’t get used often. However, any coat purchased for spring weather will also be useful in the fall.
