We love a good layering piece, especially when that piece is a jacket. But for the summer evenings when the air is still warm, they can be a little much. However, a solution does exist: the cropped jacket.

Whether it’s a frayed denim jacket to throw on over a blouse and a skirt or a chic leather jacket for a night out on the town, a cropped jacket is the perfect outerwear piece to have during the summer. Shortened to hit right at the waistline, this cut is seriously flattering too. Sport yours like a Hadid sister with a midriff-baring crop top or wear yours with a lightweight dress during the day—these will be the only jackets you reach for this season.

Ready to add one to your closet? We’ve curated our favorites on the market just for you. Before you know it, they’ll be your go-to jackets for every day. See them now.
