While you don't need every piece of outerwear available, try to stock your closet with a few basics, such as a lightweight windbreaker, long or short raincoat, long trench coat and a stylish jacket to accessorize a spring dress.
Windbreaker: Spring weather can be quite unpredictable, leaving a woman unsure whether she needs a raincoat from one day to the next.
However, a cheap windbreaker can rip or tear easily, and you still need a more formal coat for professional and social occasions.
A black windbreaker, pullover, or cardigan is worn as appropriate with the white shirt that does not have shoulder loops.
Slipping on a windbreaker helps to keep the worst of inclement weather from getting you wet and chilly.
