March is over, which can only mean one thing: April Showers are near. Prepare yourself in stylish gear by opting for the sportier, but equally as fashionable, alternative to the trench, the anorak. Super hot on the runway as seen at Jason Wu, Tommy Hilfiger, Rag & Bone, and Alexander Wang, anoraks are having a fresh moment in the fashion world. Lightweight and practical, these toppers are the perfect coats for between seasons. While remaining sporty at heart, anoraks have developed into a chic staple that can be paired with flirty dresses and even a classic work outfit. They are also easy to throw on and work well in the season of layering. So get in on the change and check out the best anoraks spring has to offer.
