I’ve come to regard a lightweight, indoor-outdoor, throw-on-and-go jacket as Wardrobe Gold. ✨It’s the finishing touch on a simple outfit, and can fend off overly aggressive air-conditioning. But it can be challenging to find styles that are casual but not too rugged, and that combine ease with some structure. Spring collections often have the best options.
Yes, there are plenty of (good) blazers out there now, and they can be a workable option. But for this edit, I wanted to show some styles that aren’t blazers or standard denim jackets. And I tried to find options that are versatile, but not too generic.

Utility and Chore Jackets
Here’s one that’s offered in some unexpected colors, up to size 3X. I like this soft pink, which creates a nice masculine/feminine balance.
Here’s one you could wear to the office. This (lined) jacket has a bit more structure, but isn’t stiff. I’ve seen in person and it’s SO cute! Also offered in Navy, sizes XX-Small to XX-Large. (I tried on a Small and found it ran true-to-size.)
Neat & Clean
If you prefer a more streamlined look, this cute knit jacket from Kettlewell is offered in over a dozen colors! If you know your seasonal palette, you can filter to just show “your” colors too. It runs TTS, and I found the Small was my best fit. (See how I wore mine HERE.) I like my red one so much I’ve ordered this Aqua color for Spring.
