There’s nothing more classic or flattering than a well-tailored jacket or blazer. It instantly pulls an outfit together and can dress up even the plainest t-shirt and jeans. This is a great option in the fall and winter, but in the summer, the weather is way too hot to warrant pulling on a jacket. For that reason, it may seem like there are no outerwear options for July and August. This is where the sleeveless blazer comes in.
It’s not quite a vest, not quite a jacket. It has the crisp tailoring and structure of a blazer, but without the sleeves and is light enough to wear on a summer day. You can wear one in the office to keep your style professional without overheating. Or you can wear a sleeveless blazer over a summer dress to get a more structured look. Pairing one with ripped skinny jeans will give your casual summer look a bit of a rocker chick vibe. Or you can stay fresh by wearing your sleeveless blazer with a pair of patterned, denim, or leather shorts.
A sleeveless blazer is so versatile and can transition easily from day to night, so you’ll be sure to get a lot of wear out of it before the summer season ends. Here are our top picks:
