Unlike other spring staples — quality chinos and sweaters abound — finding a blazer that’s appropriate for spring, with all of the weird and unpredictable weather that comes with it, is no easy feat. You want a spring blazer to be casual but not frumpy, lightweight but still substantial. Luckily, many brands have recognized the dilemma consumers faced and are increasingly turning out spring-appropriate blazers that look presentable without veering into black-tie territory.

Below you’ll find ten blazers, some slightly more casual than others, but all with the ability to make you look simultaneously approachable and like the very important man we’re sure you are.

Uniqlo Ultra Light Jacket

Uniqlo might refer to this as just a jacket, but we know a blazer when we see one. Like most of the brand’s goods, this lightweight performance number is uncomplicated and bound to become something you reach for over and over. It’s uncomplicated, inexpensive and a surefire way to elevate your style this spring.

J.Crew Garment Dyed Cotton-Linen Chore Blazer

Sometimes you want a little variety in your wardrobe, and why shouldn’t that extend to your blazers? Contrary to popular belief, not all blue blazers have to be navy. J.Crew’s cotton-linen chore blazer is available in a variety of colors like the expected navy and beige, but we’re partial to this French blue color, which is bold enough to stand out from the rest but isn’t impossible to style.

Orvis Traveler’s Hopsack Blazer

When it comes to spring-appropriate blazers for more formal occasions, any kind made from Hopsack will be a life saver. Not technically a fabric but rather a method of weaving that renders fabric loose, the result is a jacket that’s breathable and thus conducive to warmer temps. In addition to being Hopsack, Orvis’s Traveler’s blazer is a standard, everyday option, complete with their Orvis blazer buttons, for just the right amount of prep.

Lululemon New Venture Blazer

If form and functionality is the name of your game, Lululemon’s technically-inclined blazer is specced out and surprising handsome. With stretch and water-resistant more reminiscent of a travel pant than an unstructured blazer, it’s a unique find that suits those jet-setters, office-spillers and general performance-driven folk.

Another cotton blazer, this time in handsome madras. Alex Mill’s Alex Blazer is made from a breezy lightweight cotton that lends the jacket a more causal feel while remaining intriguing enough — it’s indigo print does the trick nicely — to keep things Parisian meets Nantucket chic.

Bonobos Unconstructed Italian Wool Blazer

Bonobos is known for their suiting, so naturally they would throw their hat into the unstructured blazer game. Granted, theirs is unconstructed, but it’s essentially the same thing and will serve the same purpose.

Don’t let the wool material put you off; Wills Stretch Jacket is as spring as they come, with natural temperature regulating properties and that bit of heft perfect for uncertain seasonal days.

The natural shoulder creates a relaxed silhouette that’s perfect for casually throwing on with jeans and a t-shirt, and the luxuriously soft fabric that’s just heavy enough to block out any inclement weather.
