Summer blazers are a versatile and stylish addition to any wardrobe, ideal for adding a touch of sophistication to casual and formal outfits during the warmer months.

From fancy dinners to work meetings, blazers can work their magic even when paired over a pair of denims and a tank top.

So, there’s only one sartorial solution for the scorching sunlight, and that’s a versatile summer jacket. The best are made from lightweight fabrics for easy layering on cool Spring days, while remaining breathable in an impromptu heatwave.

Here are some tips when purchasing your next blazer.

Opt for Lightweight Fabrics

Linen is breathable and lightweight making it perfect for the hot weather. Alongside, cotton which is a versatile option. Aditionally, blends with synthetic fibers like polyester or elastane can add durability and stretch while maintaining a breezy feel.

Colors and Patterns

The two options include light colours such as beige, light grey, pastels, and white, which reflect heat and keep you cool or bold patterns featuring stripes, checks, and subtle prints can add interest and are suitable for summer.

Easy design elements

With unlined or partially lined structures, it reduces weight and increases breathability. An unstructured fit or relaxed fit comes without heavy padding, perfect for a casual summer look. Also, single-breasted styles are generally cooler and more casual than double-breasted blazers.

Also, if you’re after a more casual option, look to a classic denim jacket: and yes, this season, double-denim is very much on the cards. And for something that’ll lend a boyish slant to staple looks, the bomber jacket reigns: you can’t go wrong with an MA-1-inspired shade of green, which looks jut as good over neutral cargo trousers as it does a floral midi dress.
