Summer is the season for tanktops, shorts, and swimsuits. But for when you need to add a little class to your outfit or keep warm during the cool summer nights, these summer-ready jackets have got your back.
1. Floral Kimono
Fall in love with this summer’s hottest trend, kimonos. Give your heavy cardigans a break with these light and airy jackets. Throw a floral kimono over a maxi dress or high-waisted shorts for a flawless summer look.
2. Lace Cardigan
Okay, so you don’t need to give up all your cardigans. A lace cardigan is perfect for summer because the holey material lets your body breathe. This light-hearted jacket is an effortless way to add some girly class to any outfit.
3. Green Military Jacket
Military jackets took over fall fashion in 2013, but did you know they also work for summer? Since this jacket is a little heavier, it is the perfect way to keep warm without losing you sense of style during cool summer nights.
4. Jean Jacket
Jean jackets are so versatile; every girl needs one! Add a jean jacket to a maxi skirt and white tank for a casual look or pair it with a striped dress and wedges for drinks with the girls. If you’re worried the jean material will be too heavy, opt for a chambray jacket instead.
5. Colored Blazer
Class up any outfit without losing your fun summer style with colorful blazers. These vibrant jackets are perfect for a lunch date, work, or a night out. Try trending colors like orange, mint, or blush pink for an instantly chic look.
6. White Leather Jacket
If you thought leather jackets were only for the cold months, think again. This summer’s white leather obsession is focused on modern pieces, feminine detail, and utility. Add some edge to your summer wardrobe with a white leather moto jacket.
7. Sheer Kimono
If florals aren’t exactly your thing, don’t freak out, you can still rock this summer’s kimono trend. Try a sheer black kimono for an easy-breezy indie look. If you want to add a little pop try a print, like tribal or abstract.
8. 80's Windbreaker
Thanks to Macklemore, thrift store pieces are making their way into fashion. When you’re feeling nostalgic for the 80’s, add a whimsical windbreaker to a sporty look. Pair this colorful jacket with shorts or a skater skirt for a totally retro look.
9. Short, Colored Trench
A trench coat is such a classic item. The trick to turning this traditional fall jacket into a summer item is to choose a shorter length that hits at the waist instead of the mid thigh. Then show off your cheerful summer side with a fun color, like teal.
