Stan Fields: Miss Rhode Island, please describe your idea of a perfect date. Cheryl “Rhode Island”: That’s a tough one. I’d have to say April 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.

This is one of my favorite quotes from a favorite movie, “Miss Congeniality.” And I’m with Miss Rhode Island. Spring is around the corner, just in time for my favorite layering piece of the year….the go-to, lightweight jacket.

Call me clothes-obsessed, but I am a sucker for a great jacket. I crave breezy mornings on the coast, simply because I can’t wait to bust out a new accessory. And yes, I 100% consider jackets an accessory. You can opt for a fun print, a bold color or a new texture to add to your overall look. Anything that can radically shift an overall vibe is absolutely an accessory!

If you need a bit more “weather” protection or you’re searching for a shift in silhouette, our team here at National® has developed an array of options sure to suit your closet. Below are a few options that seamlessly transition from winter to spring. Which one do you like best?
