Look We Love: Sporting a jacket in the summer may seem like a dumb (and sweaty) idea, but it can actually create a sleek, chic look…
Make It Work For You:
* Stay Relaxed: You don’t have to be heading to an office or social event to pull your look together with a jacket (like the typically casual mom Julia Roberts). Try choosing laid-back and light fabrics, but make sure the fit is just right to avoid looking cheap (it shouldn’t pull or bunch at the shoulders,Â across your back or on your chest). Try something short-sleeved (to beat the heat)Â with a nipped-in waist lineÂ (to make you appear slimmer), such as the SS Career Jacket.
* Go For Light: Avoid roasting in the sun by wearing light colors (like white or khaki), and pairing the look with summer appropriate pieces (like aÂ sleek tank or matching pants,Â Ã¡ laÂ mom Madonna).
* Play With Fit: Keep summer jackets fresh and youthful by choosingÂ Â¾ quarter length sleeves (or rolling up atÂ the arms), or wearing a cropped version (only if you want to show off a small waistline). Have fun by pairing a light-weight blazer (like the Women’s Twill Blazer) with a feminine sundress and flats, or boyfriend jeans and a T.
