When it comes to revitalizing and refreshing your wardrobe once warmer weather rolls around, it's important to take out the pieces that are better for colder temperatures—we're talking about those heavy fur coats, shearling-lined boots that keep your feet warm in the wintertime but would probably make them sweat profusely in the heat, and of course, your wool sweaters. As for the items that should stay year-round? Your tried-and-true jeans (here's a guide to wearing them in the summer), boots (sans fur interiors, of course), and an office-turned–street style staple: a structured blazer, the latter of which we're focusing in on today. Below you'll find an easy-to-follow outfit guide for how to wear a blazer in the summer, so get ready to take note.
