After more than a year of wearing loungewear on repeat, we totally empathize with those people who are ready to get dressed again. Spring’s arrival, and the promise of warmer days it brings, makes it harder to even look at our winter clothes anymore. But dressing for transitional times presents challenges of its own: While you may not need a lot of heavy, insulating layers, you’ll want some lighter ones that work as well on cool days around the house as they do on chilly days spent running errands. A denim jacket can be a most effective layer for these in-between times, but if you don’t want one that looks the same as everyone else’s, Everlane’s denim chore coat would be an option to consider — especially right now, while it’s 60 percent off. Made from non-stretch denim that’s loosely woven, it’s cut a tad longer than your traditional jean jacket, with lots of front pockets that give it a workwear-inspired look. Its longer length and looser weave mean it’ll be even easier to throw on top of a spring-weight sweater, and because it’s denim, it can be dressed up (over more denim) for outdoor dining or dressed down (over sweats, if you’re still not ready to let go) for dog walks. We’re fond of the classic medium-wash denim, but you can also get it in a crisp off-white for the same sale price.
