Just because it's summer doesn't mean outer layers are never necessary! Cold air-conditioned offices and businesses are painful to sit in wearing your tiny summer dresses and shorts, so sometimes a light jacket is all you need. Plus, come fall, it'll be a necessary layering piece! These jackets are super on-trend, but won't break the bank.

Pseudo-Athletic White

Whether a bomber or more relaxed fit, a cool white jacket can add a casual element to a feminine summer dress, or bring some polish to a tee and cutoffs. The white hot look is much more relaxed than a white blazer, bringing more edge than prep.

Mesh and Semi-sheer Bombers

Whether sporty or sweet with an athletic or lace style, a semi-sheer bomber is such a great style for the hotter days of summer, and shows off what you're wearing underneath without overwhelming your frame with lots of fabric.

Floral Bomber

A floral bomber jacket is perfectly appropriate for the summer but adds some necessary warmth indoors. It will also transition so well from summer to fall, when the layer becomes a constant necessity.

Updated Kimono

The silky, festival-ready hippie-chick kimono style is so overdone, but the updated kimono style has more swing and a slightly more structured feel than the old draped style.
