10 Cute Spring Jackets Under $60


Cute Spring Jackets

It’s officially spring in two days, and with that comes warmer weather, sunny skies, and.. finally.. time to break out the spring fashion. From dresses and denim to accessories and shoes, spring is a fabulous opportunity to revamp your wardrobe. Year after year, one of the most important spring pieces is the lightweight jacket.

I’ve received a bunch of emails lately from you guys looking for cute and affordable spring jackets, so I thought I’d help you out and show you my picks.

A lightweight jacket is a true spring wardrobe essential, and to help you all with your shopping, I’ve found 10 cute spring jackets for even the smallest clothing budget. All of the jackets featured below are less than $60 each!

10 Cute Spring Jackets

Cute spring jackets

* 1. Full Tilt Women’s Venus Moto Jacket – $29.97 at Tilly’s.

Faux leather jackets are hot for spring, and this one is both versatile and affordable! It would go well with a simple pair of skinny jeans and a basic top, or could work over one of spring’s cute floral dresses. The choice is yours. Either way, for $29.97, you can’t really go wrong. As of my posting this, size M and L are still available, so buy this one fast if you’re interested.

* 2. Brow.NY Sailors Jacket – $39.50 at Buckle.

Off white is a great color for spring, and this jacket is a super-chic option for the price. With its slightly flared, cropped sleeves and sailor-inspired buttons, its got a hint of the nautical trend going.

* 3. Daytrip Quilted Coat – $49.50 at Buckle.

A cute lightweight nylon jacket that would be perfect for everyday. Fun details like the faux cheetah print lining and the button pockets add interest to an otherwise basic piece. The price tag isn’t bad either!

* 4. AE Boyfriend Blazer – $59.50 at American Eagle.

I love this white blazer because it’s such a simple basic that can work in many ways. Dress it up by paring it with a cute skirt and top (very Stella McCartney Spring 2009 Ready To Wear), or dress it down with some cropped jeans and a loose tank.

* 5. Grey Nylon Jacket – $29.99 at H&M.

How cute is this cropped bomber jacket? Grey is always a great color for spring because it pairs so well with yellow, hot pink, and other brights. A jacket like this one would be perfect over a yellow or hot pink top with skinny jeans and some cute spring flats.

* 6. Green Corduroy Jacket – $36.80 at H&M.

A lightweight pea coat in a fun color is a great way to spring-ify any outfit and transition your wardrobe into spring. This one from H&M is the perfect fresh shade of green. As a bonus, this piece is versatile – you could easily rock it now and and wear it next winter too (layered over a hoodie for extra warmth.)

* 7. Cotton Moto Jacket – $26.50 at Wet Seal.

Just because it’s spring, that doesn’t mean you have to give up wearing black! If you love basic black like me, you’re probably looking for something similar to this moto jacket for spring. It’s a little bit rocker chick and a little bit simple basic, all mixed up with some interesting details. At $26.50, could it get any better?

* 8. Harlow Denim Jacket – $54.50 at dELIA*s.

The denim jacket is probably one of the trendiest spring items that’s still a basic. Jean jackets are HOT right now, and they’re the type of piece that everyone needs to have in their closet. This one from dELiA*s is the perfect shade of distressed denim – not too dark and not too light. It would pair well with a boho-chic dress and boots, a tank and shorts, or just a dark wash pair of skinnies and flats.

* 9. Crinkled Faux Leather Zip Pocket Jacket – $46.80 at Forever 21.

Yet another faux leather jacket – notice a trend here? Again, faux leather jackets are the inexpensive, cruelty-free way to get in on a hot fashion trend and channel your inner badass. I love this one because it mimics vintage, distressed leather without the ultra high price tag & dead animals.

* 10. Hurley Moto Lila Jacket – $59.50 at

This one’s a super cute cross between a hoodie and a bomber jacket with an edgy sideways zipper. Instead of your typical stiff cotton material, this jacket is made out of soft sweatshirt fabric – perfect when you want to be comfy but still look put together. And once again, gray is a hot color for spring!

    I’m loving the faux leather!! I’m so ready for warm weather I almost hate the thought of jacket shopping at this point… But these are so cute you may have changed my mind. :)

    I like the offset zipper jackets and the green one. However, I still think the faux leather thing is silly. Leather is different from fur in that it is a by-product of the meat industry, something that will never go away. So, you’re not saving any animals by wearing faux.

    Also, faux is cheaper in the short term, but it doesn’t hold up in the long run. I’ve gone through so much fake leather that it isn’t even worth it. Genuine leather will last lifetimes (my boyfriend has a belt that his grandpa and father both wore). And if the price tag is too hefty, just check out a thrift store. I found my leather jacket for 12 bucks!

    I absolutely love the Grey H&M jacket, I’ve even featured it in an outfit on my blog the other day!! I’m happy to see that you think it’s cool too. Grey is really hot this season and faux leather jackets too. So I’d stick with No.5 and 9 and 10.

    Connie – The H&M jackets are from … it’s all in Swedish, and you can’t buy from the US, but you can get pictures of the items! And it’s pretty easy to navigate because the words are somewhat similar – for example Jackor is jackets :)

    Jenny – I totally agree with you on buying leather from thrift stores! Such a smart idea. As for why I prefer faux, I think for me it’s just the idea of wearing a dead animal’s skin that makes me wanna go faux. And of course ideally there wouldn’t be a meat industry, so I don’t want to support any part of it by buying leather when I don’t eat meat. But to each her own!

    Shining Trends – LOVE that jacket! Going to try and pick it up at my local H&M soon!

    I love that blazer from AE. White blazers are so cute for spring.

    & I agree with Jenny about faux-leather jackets. As a lifelong vegetarian, I still buy real leather. One reason is that, while i love animals, I love the environment more. Faux leather is essentially plastic. Plus it won’t last nearly as long as real leather, so it can’t really be reused either. I try my best to buy recycled leather/leather from thrift stores though. Also, I buy a lot of shoes from Corso Como which is a fabulous company that uses leather, but also eco friendly factories, naturally dyed leather, and fair labor practices. The shoes are amazing quality and really reasonably priced! I promise I don’t work for them, haha.

    Sorry for that long & kinda preachy paragraph. I hope it didn’t come off as rude. Everyone should do waht they think is right. It’s nice to see someone actually think about things like the welfare of animals, even though i dont agree with faux leather :)

    I love this blog!!

    Ahh, I love the H&M jacket. I love the color. I saw a trenchcoat in H&M the other day, the same color, and I wanted to buy it so much but I spent all my cash :(

    I love sifting through sales racks at more high-end stores. What you find can really be a surprise!

    Yes, thank you x! It’s important to know that a lot of faux leather is made from petro-chemicals (i.e. oil), an industry that is arguably far more destructive/harmful than the meat industry.

    I forgot to add in my first post that I don’t really get the point of 3/4 sleeve jackets. If it’s chilly enough to wear a jacket, then I need sleeves! Someone please explain it to me, haha.

    Faux leather is HOT this spring. I love that it was featured in the blog. I shopped at Ragstock, a thrift/vinage store and I got a great deal on a cropped simple jacket for five dollars!!! Being a thrity..haha, college student doesn’t have to mean sacrifice for a great coat. It takes hours of sorting through racks, but when you find something, it’s worth the time spent.

    The H&M jackets are available in the US. All the ones I’ve been to in New York have the nylon jackets, and they have faux leather jackets too.
