With the summer sun on the horizon, the last thing I want to hear about, let alone wear, is a jacket. But believe it or not, jackets and sweaters are summer staples for those breezy beach days and cool summer nights!
Salvador Camarena, celebrity wardrobe stylist, says easy, relaxed pieces are what the next two seasons are all about. Try these styles on for size:
Linen Cable Nit Linen has always been a great option for summer outerwear. It is light for day, easy for night, and a perfect layer to complete any summertime outfit.
Linen Cable-Knit Cardigan, $79.50
Lightweight Cashmere Contrary to what you may think, cashmere is not just for winter weather! In fact, luxurious over-sized cashmere is perfect for a beachside dinner or hanging out around town.Camarena also suggests trying cashmere round neck t-shirts.
Cashmere Open-Stitch Sweater, $248.00
Classic Jacket A denim jacket is an all-American staple. Look for a modern middle-washed denim that’s fitted and hits at your waistline. Colored denim is also hot for this summer. Try bright blue, melon, white, and Camarena's personal favorite, yellow.
