A lightweight blazer is a summer essential for men. It easily can dress up a pair of jeans (or even shorts) and will be a saving grace at more formal events when it is hot outside.
Picking the Perfect Summer Blazer
1. Budget: The first thing to do is determine your budgett. If you’re after that one piece that you’ll make the most out of, then it’s a good idea to invest a bit more. You’ll be able to use it all summer, every summer for years to come.
2. Fabrication: While linen is a great summer fabric, always remember that it will wrinkle almost instantly. So if you want to stay crisp all day, opt for a cotton/linen blend or 100% cotton fabrication.
3. Color: Pastels are always popular this time of year and an easy way to incorporate color into your wardrobe. If you prefer to stick with the basic, opts for a darker blue, grey or khaki blazer. You can always sneak some color in by choosing a style that has a fun lining (Ted Baker is great for this... his blazers always have a whimsical printed lining)
