Shop Lightweight Outerwear—Because Even In Summer, You Might Need An Extra Layer

  • 8137

The hottest summer days are upon us! And, blazing hot days call for clothes that make the temps more bearable—tank tops and breezy dresses in fabrics like cotton and linen. While the sun is out, less is more, however, summer is not always exempt from chilly temperatures, especially after dusk. And with the return of nightlife, having go-to breathable outerwear options on hand, like lightweight jackets, is key.

There are a plethora of options to choose from that are airy enough for summer yet insulated enough to keep you warm. Opt for a trench coat or poncho made from lightweight linen, a shacket that can be kept in a bag and thrown over any outfit you may be sporting, a vest for nights where only a little extra warmth is needed, or a polished denim jacket that can be worn day or night. With the world increasingly opening up, there’s no need to spoil dinners or drinks reuniting with friends with the constant nag of a chill. Here, shop lightweight jackets and outerwear for this summer and beyond.
