Maximize Your Ventilation With These Summer Vests

As the temps start their rise from comfortably mild to scorching hot, it’s time to take stock of your wardrobe. White summer dress(es)? Check. Water bottle holder? Got it. Dad sandals? Already on the way. But we’re guessing you don’t have nearly enough summer vests.

Sweater vests have become fall and winter mainstays. And three-piece suiting is still going strong. When it comes to summer, however, most of us steer clear of both categories. Actually, you can rock both types from June through August.

Of course, there are some caveats. First, material matters. Skip wool and other heavy fabrics. Instead, look for linen, cotton, etc. Second, consider sporting the vests solo. Granted, some don’t have buttons to keep everything covered. In those cases, simply slip a tee or tank underneath. Problem solved.
