Dear LUXYMOM™ – What Is The BEST Layering Jacket for Summer?


Look no further, my fashionable friends – THIS is the most perfect jacket style to layer over your outfit for summer. A drapey duster jacket is a style that moves fluidly with you and is currently available in lightweight fabrics, from many retailers, and at all price points.

You’ve seen this style recently when Hannah Jeter wore a gorgeous pink duster over her maternity outfit for Derek Jeter’s retirement ceremony. And while Hannah wore a beautiful blush pink duster jacket, they’re being designed in many colors – black, white, grey, khaki, pink, blue, to name a few.

This pink jacket is the perfect, light layer for spring and summer. It is similar to the one worn by Hannah Jeter.

Above, I’m showing a nearly identical jacket on my friend Carol Imhoff of Nashville fashion blog My Smart Collection. Carol is a PRO at styling jackets for summer, or any season for that matter. It’s one of her signature ways to pull an outfit together and make it look really polished.

A light layer is essential for summer dressing, because not every day is scorchingly hot, and those summer evenings can get pretty cool in much of the country. A jacket like this can be layered over a casual outfit – elevating a simple jeans and tee look – or it can be worn over a much dressier outfit, like Hannah Jeter’s.
