Lightweight jackets are the key to making style work for the temperamental weather as winter moves into spring. And sure, bombers are great! Macs and Harringtons, too. But bringing something different into the mix can make your entire wardrobe feel new. Something like a blouson (so called for the way the OG versions "bloused" out from the nipped-in waist; don't let the name scare you). It's the perfect bomber-ish jacket for those days when you're sick of actual bombers. Here are a few of our favorites.
