Your mom’s wardrobe essential from the ’80s is back. I’m not talking about the fanny pack. I’m talking about the windbreaker, man. So what if you think this polyester/nylon jacket is fugly or obnoxious because it makes that “woosh” sound every time you wave your arms. When it comes to practicality, windbreakers are cool in every sense of the word.

The 11 jackets below will help you stylishly transition into spring. And remember: A little wind and rain never hurt a windbreaker.

Chill Season Windbreaker ($17.99) at Pink Ice

Gingham clothing is taking over, so score a jacket that will complement the picnic-y print. And because I know you’re wondering: Yes, Dorothy totally would have worn this while battling tornado gusts in Kansas.

Empyre Roni Potent Purple Tribal Windbreaker Jacket ($39.95) at Zumiez

I’m 100 percent over the tribal-print fad. Blame that on the high schoolers who flocked to music fests last year only to annoyingly text on their phones during all of Lorde’s set. Nevertheless, this jacket gets a pass because it includes the design in a way that doesn’t scream, “This is my first Coachella!”

Windbreaker Utility Jacket ($37.90) at Forever 21

Who said windbreakers can’t be chic? This one is adorable, sophisticated and even has a drawstring at the waist, so it’s figure-flattering, too.

LA Hearts Windbreaker Bomber Jacket ($44.95) at PacSun

In terms of windbreakers that don’t actually look like windbreakers, this one takes the cake. It’s masquerading as a bomber jacket, but I’m confident that Peaches Monroee would still declare, “Windbreaker on fleek!”

Volcom Juniors Enemy Lines Windbreaker Jacket ($26.22) at Amazon

Tropical prints are another go-to trend this spring, and the palm trees sprinkled across this lightweight jacket are a fun way to usher in warmer weather.

Zine Jester Red Windbreaker Jacket ($29.99) at Zumiez

The simplicity of this windbreaker’s design works well, as the color is crazy bold. Now all you need is a pair of Converse or Dr. Martens to go along with the jacket, and you’ll be the queen of grunge.

Without Walls Colorblock Windbreaker ($78) at Urban Outfitters

Here’s one for the sporty girls who like to keep things classy. This moisture-wicking jacket has a chest pocket, so you can stow your MP3 player while hitting the pavement and turning heads.

Zine Black Celestial Windbreaker Jacket ($39.95) at Zumiez

This jacket is out of this world! Ba-dum-tss. Wear it, and you’ll be feeling starry-eyed and dreamy—no matter how dreary the weather.

Volcom ‘Enemy Stone’ Hooded Jacket ($59.50) at Nordstrom

Be pretty in pink while splashing through the puddles. This one is also available in black if you’re not, you know, into Pepto-Bismol–color clothes.

Windbreakers that are worth the splurge

Drop of Mindfulness Downtown Sprinter Jacket ($120) at Carbon38

If a unicorn were to wear a windbreaker, it would be this one. Not only is the metallic purple magical, but the peach trim adds a touch of whimsy. I’m obsessed with this. I’d wear it everywhere. Even to the club.

Invicta Reversible Nylon Windbreaker Jacket ($173) at Luisaviaroma

I love the colors. I love the stripes. I love everything about this jacket except for the price. Still, at least it’s reversible and has a hood and two pockets. So you’re getting quality, functionality and versatility for that cost!
