A jacket may not be the first thing that comes to mind when imagining one’s summer wardrobe. But the cool breeze of spring is still hanging in the air, and once we do return to those overly air-conditioned buildings for work or continue our video conference calls from home, we will need to look the part—at least from the waist up.

We can’t underestimate the feeling of accomplishment when we engage in our morning rituals, with the simple act of getting dressed being an important part of the process. Throwing on a jacket, be it a chic blazer or an effortless tie-waist wrap, is the bow that ties an outfit together, even if it is topping off the most basic of loungewear. Peruse the following options to guide you, with all styles easily transitional from weekday to weekend to what day is it again?
