We hate to say it, but summer is nearly over. Evenings are getting chillier, back to school commercials are constant, and—though you would never admit it—you’re even looking forward to the thought of a pumpkin spice latte. The good news? With the sad end of the sunny season comes a whole new world of wardrobe possibilities, starting with the jacket.
This season, they’re not only practical but cool—and they’re a great way to add some interest to the tees and chambrays you’ve been wearing all summer. With September fast approaching, we bring you a jacket for every day of the week.
￼￼SUNDAY: The Sweater Jacket
The structure of a jacket, the comfort of a cozy sweater. Ditch your old hoodie for one of these, and easily upgrade your weekend look.
￼￼MONDAY: The Field Jacket
Yes, the weekend’s over. But when a jacket looks this good on a motorcycle or with a suit, you can try and keep an off-duty frame of mind even when you’re at your desk.
TUESDAY: The Tech Blazer
Sudden downpour on the way to work? No problem. This lightweight tech fabric is water-repellent and still office-appropriate. (Better bring an umbrella next time, though.)
￼￼WEDNESDAY: The Vest
It’s casual enough to catch a game after work, but looks surprisingly pulled-together under a sportcoat (ideal for enthusiastically air-conditioned offices).
￼￼THURSDAY: The Varsity
Loosen up. It’s nearly Friday—and, depending on your office environment, you can pull off this sporty style at work if you pair it with a crisp white shirt, clean dark jeans, and proper shoes.
FRIDAY: The Bomber
Perfect for a casual dinner or a night on the town. Try it with jeans and standout sneakers for a look that’s laid-back but still plenty luxe.
SATURDAY: The Puffer
Outdoorsy day ahead? This super-lightweight down shirt jacket is perfect for layering in in-between season weather.
