Whether it's a gentle breeze, a not-so-gentle sunburn, or a tricky dress code that requires you to cover up in warm weather, the kimono jacket is the perfect Summer staple. Cooler and lighter than a denim jacket, chicer than a zip-up hoodie, but more casual than a blazer, these slouchy cover-ups work all day long and are particularly great for throwing in a suitcase for a holiday or short break as they'll roll up to virtually nothing. Whether you prefer classic black, a bold print, or a bit of subtle embroidery, we've picked some of the best buys available right now. Throw them on over shorts and a vest for simple festival style, or layer up over a dress for a laid-back evening look. No Summer wardrobe is complete without one!
