5 Summer Jackets to Get You Through Until Fall: Friday Finds

Summer jackets are perfect for cool days, nights, or rooms.

Although the summer sun is hot and the days are long, certain days and outings require summer jackets. Here are 5 jackets that are fashionable enough for your wardrobe, and light enough for the season.

Summer jackets are for '90s lovers, too.

1. Cargo jacket

My inner ‘90s child is losing her mind over this cargo jacket. I love its hood, its pockets—its my angry teenage fantasy. Not only are the jacket’s many pockets fashionable, they’re functional, too. I mean, just think how many lipsticks, phone accessories, etc. could fit in there? Wear this jacket with a mini skirt to accentuate its boxy, roomy style. Priced at $198.

Denim makes for great summer jackets.

2. Denim jacket

I don’t think there’s a denim jacket in the world that would look out of place on anyone, any time of the year. This jacket is no different. We love its classic, blue hue and its oversized, yet slim, cut. Features distressed detailing so you don’t look too put together. Priced at $89.50.

Summer jackets can be light and lacey.

3. Lace jacket

We love summer jackets for another reason: Often times, they don’t actually have to provide a lot of warmth to be effective. For example: this jacket. Yes, it has killer style, but it will not keep you toasty come a cold, winter night. This jacket features the very trendy military cut, but is girled-up a bit thanks to its lace detail. Priced at $148.

Summer jackets should pair well with maxi dresses.

4. Summer anorak

While this is technically not a jacket, we’re going to call it one anyway. This would pair well with maxi and midi dresses because of its subtly cinched waist. It also has two, front pockets that come in handy if you’d rather slip your ID, cash, and phone in them vs. carry a bag. Priced at $178.

Summer jackets with a moto style are always fashionable.

5. Moto jacket

Has there ever really been an era where a moto jacket didn’t look amazing? We don’t think so. We love this moto jacket because of its short fit, woven detail, and easy-to-pull-up sleeves. Wear with shorts, jeans, skirts—basically with whatever. It’s that versatile. Priced at $148.
