Blazing heat

Jackets and blazers cool enough for summer's brutal temps

There are few things I do in summertime more earnestly than seek relief from the heat. But, even Louisiana summers call for a jacket now and then. (Think freezing restaurants and breezy nights.) We've spotted three brand new ones that have cropped up in summer worthy fabrications and perfectly subdued hues.

The first that caught this IND Styler's eye - Hemline's linen moto jacket. That's right, linen and moto all rolled into one.

Per our inside source at Vanessa V., fall is all about the moto jackets and boots. With a summer that carries far into fall around here, linen is just the fabric to keep you cool now and in style later. Speaking of Vanessa V. we love their new cream blazer. The dapper choice is paired with a polka dot dress but the ladies have also styled it with some shorts, which we're loving as well. It's just the way to get away with wearing shorts both day and night.

At Maven Womenswear a color block blazer brings two trends together. We'd love it paired with some slouchy boyfriend jeans or over an easy floral dress. And with a linen fabrication and cool summer colors, it's sure to keep you in style no matter the temp.
