Denim jackets are a summer staple, it's true, but sometimes your outfit calls for something with a little more oomph than your tried-and-true Levi's tooper. That's where the pieces above come in: they provide a lightweight layer for both windy summer nights and enthusiastically air conditioned buildings—without leaving you sweltering.

I know I felt lost when I lost my favorite cropped jean jacket last August (though I hope whoever picked it off that rooftop is treating it well), but with my fallback gone, I had to look elsewhere in my wardrobe for options, and nowadays I get far more use out of the cotton blazers and khaki bomber that I had previously neglected. So if you, too, feel like you're in a bit of a denim-induced rut, click through to shop our favorite warm weather-friendly alternatives.
