One of the most frustrating aspects of spring is needing to swaddle yourself in a raincoat to protect against inevitable April showers. The functionality of weather-proofing sacrifices the #lewk of your chic spring outfit just as your Michelin Man–style puffers obscured your oh-so-cozy seasonal velvet athleisure pieces in the winter.
