The heat is real this summer, but don’t convince yourself that you won’t need any jackets for the next three months. It might seem counterintuitive to wear, but there are still plenty of breezy winds, rainy days, and chilly evenings in between ahead when you'll need to wear outerwear both practical and stylish. Take your outfits to the next level and keep your summer looks fresh with jackets, cardigans, and more! Today, read about five summer outerwear staples to keep in your closet this season:
The possibilities are endless for our Jane Mocha Cardigan! This is the perfect companion made for everyday all year long. Cardigans are one of the summer's most practical and beloved seasonal outerwear pieces, so throw this light duster over you anytime. Style it if you're cool during dinner in our Cher Linen Skirt + our Dreaming of Summer Knit Tank, or as a cute coverup with a bathing suit + our Addy Ivory Silk Tie!
Our Travel Away Trench is the epitome of classic! This gorgeous tan trench is not only for the chillier season — we've found the perfect woven, lightweight piece for any time of year, especially summer. The satin lining, functional pockets, and optional belt makes for a beautiful quality jacket. Worried about a summer rainstorm? Pair this with our Everyday Tee + your trusty pair of jeans for a simple look to navigate the weather. Add this piece with our Jetsetter Joggers + our Alyson Croc Sandals as you head out to your next paradisiacal vacay!
Our Cloud Teddy Jacket definitely feels like a summer dream! There's a reason why this trend was all the hype — these jackets are plush, full of cozy texture, and are the clothing equivalent of the stuffed toy they're named after! From the bright white color to the soft + cozy fabric - it's no wonder why our jacket reminds us of a cloud. Throw it on for any and every occasion during those breezy days + chilly nights. For a day inside curled up on the couch, wear with a pair of leggings + our Millie Knit Tank or our Bayside Knit Tank then tie your hair up with one of our Audrey Soft Scrunchies!
Add a stylish touch to any basic summer outfit with our Grace Scalloped Jacket! The fun scalloped detail makes this blazer-turned-jacket into such a staple piece this season. And it's not just fit for an office cubicle — transition this chic piece from day to night for any occasion. Use it to polish up our Peach Lace Mini Dress + our Heidi Strap Sandals for a brunch — or with our All the Frills Tank + some statement heels on a night out!
An unexpected SJ trend — our Scarlet Organza Trench! Bring out the sass with this fun black piece and take any outfit from ordinary to fabulous! From the structured collar and oversized fit to the functional pockets and included belt, this sheer beauty will be a forever fave all year long. Try this style by mixing it with other textures like with our Vanessa Satin Blouse + our Untamed Satin Shorts underneath for a bold nighttime look. Or layer it over a strappy piece like our Bea Slip Dress with a different but equally as fab belt.
