AE Lightweight Hooded Anorak, $34.99With the summer sun rolling in, I know the last thing I want to hear about, let alone wear, is a jacket.
Believe it or not, jackets and sweaters are summer staples for those breezy beach days or cool summer nights. Salvador Camarena, an LA-based wardrobe stylist, says easy relaxed pieces are what the next two seasons are all about.
The soul of this summer's outerwear is putting a twist on classic styles. Try these styles on for size:
Linen Cable Nit Linen has always been a great option for summer outerwear. It is light for day, easy for night, and a perfect layer to complete any summertime outfit.

Classic Jacket A denim jacket is an all-American staple. Look for a modern middle-washed denim that's fitted and hits at your waistline. Colored denim is also hot for this summer. Try bright blue, melon, white, and Camarena's personal favorite, yellow.
