You don’t need to limit your summer wardrobe to just barely-there silhouettes. However, you will see a lot more of them this season. Although summer is a season of less clothes and more sun, you can still use your favorite style hacks. My favorite is to layer a jacket over a dress.

We’ll tell you a little secret in case you forgot: you don’t need to completely ditch your outerwear during the summer. The jacket isn’t only for wrapping up. It can also be used as a layer to keep you warm at night. The key to a timeless dress and jacket uniform is to balance both silhouettes. Consider lightweight fabrics and vibrant colors that will keep you cool throughout the day. Summer is here, so you don’t want to pass out for fashion.

Scroll down to see seven different ways to wear jackets for the season. From blazers to cropped silhouettes, to leather moto jackets.

Leather Moto Jackets

Leather jackets can be worn during the summer. This is best done at the transitional point of the season. Leather jackets can add a pop-punk edge to any outfit. This includes dresses. Because the silhouette is more pronounced, choose a lightweight dress–think of flowy slip dresses. When the sun sets, add a leather jacket for an extra layer.

Boxy Blazers

This summer, while everyone is on vacation, it’s important to transition into business casual from the office. We’re relying on our favorite blazers. Wear the preppy item over your favorite dresses like floral minis and floor-sweeping maxi gowns. It can add sophistication to an easy daytime look. The blazer can be worn all year round. It’s light, practical, and too cute to give up for one season.

All Things Oversized

There are far too many benefits to list. The oversized outerwear is not only stylish but also functional. It allows for more airflow. You can use a large-than-life shape to create a stylish dress if you are stuck for ideas. This style allows you to experiment with many trends for summer. For example, a large jacket looks great when worn over a mini-dress.

Lightweight Linen

The linen fabric is a great choice for summer clothing. It’s not just for wide-leg trousers. The material is also a reliable outerwear option, regardless of the silhouette. (Sometimes the best solution for outerwear isn’t a jacket, but a lightweight t-shirt disguised as outerwear.) If you are unsure what to wear as your final layer, try a linen shirt instead of a knit top.

Cute & Cropped

You can still make an impact by choosing a cropped style if going pants-less seems too daring. Cropped styles don’t have to be baby tees. You can also add some fun to your outfits with a maxi or midi dress paired with a cropped jacket.

Daring Denim

There are many ways to wear denim on denim. Denim has been a favorite for decades and it is still popular this summer. A jean jacket, in a light wash or a dark wash, adds a casual touch to any dress. It’s perfect for wearing to the beach, or to dinner.

Maximalist Motto

Colors are a great way to express summer. Include bright, vibrant colors, especially in outerwear, for a summery look. Mix patterns and colors or pair a monochrome outfit with a statement jacket to create a chic look.
