Fashion Top Five: Swap Heavy Suit Jackets For Lighter Blazer Alternatives

Wearing a stiff, dark jacket when it’s getting warm out is no fun – office attire that signals the spirit of spring is much more pleasant. With shorter sleeves and lighter fabrics, these five jackets can be paired with trousers during the day and work as a convenient layer you can carry around a bar at night. And when they turn on the air in your office in a couple of weeks, these jackets will work wonders providing a layer of protection from freezing hallways.

Banana Republic’s Cotton Sweater Jacket ($98) is shaped like a jacket, with the weight and movement of a spring sweater. The cheery yellow color will brighten up neutral-colored work attire.

The hint of metallic woven into this BB Dakota Paulette Jacket (was $64, now $45) will add some pop to the solid black and white pieces you already own.

The slightly crinkly fabric and puff sleeves on this Funnel Neck Jacket ($295) make it a good go-to blazer for the slightly more relaxed sunny seasons.

This Kensie Lace Jacket ($98) has a vintage sensibility, with charming details like the lace pattern, pleated cuffs and faux wood buttons.

The big buttons on this Sunny Leigh Three-Quarter-Sleeve (was $129, now $96.75) tone down the black-jacket seriousness.
