Gone are the April showers and May gray as we head straight into June gloom before things heat up in the summer sun. However, with cooler temps lingering around through the end of Spring, it’s not too late to add some fashionably fly and lightweight outerwear to your collection. Don’t forget that anoraks and windbreakers are great for keeping you comfortably cozy while looking cool; a great first choice for a damp day. Not only do they protect you from the elements, they’re perfectly practical, providing you with plenty of pockets for storage. Usually lacking in structure and shape, this casual piece of outerwear is easy to throw on over almost any ‘fit.
Drawing heavy influence from utilitarian military design, anoraks are a simple way to add edginess, power, or both to your look. They’re so versatile, you can even show off your unique style by dressing them up in an unexpected way. Guys, just layer a neutral jacket over a nice sweater or vest on top a button-down of your choice and you’re set! Ladies, pair it with a mini-dress or sleek skinny jeans and sexy top to slay the streets. There’s no doubt that as you traverse the urban jungle, you want to stand out among the chaos and commotion. Don’t be afraid to take risks with your outfits and play with the over-sized proportions of a windbreaker.
Whatever your personal style is and whether you prefer solids, stripes, camo, or canvas, there’s sure to be a piece of lightweight outerwear that’s just right.
