5 Outfits To Welcome Jacket-Optional Weather

Photographed by Melodie Jeng.
Though it might last for just a week (unless you're one of those people who live in Southern California or the Côte d'Azur where you've never suffered a single snowflake), we totally relish the few days we get where we get to bask in perfect in-between weather. No matter what we wear — shorts or pants, sandals or shoes, tights or no tights — we can be sure that we won't sweat or shiver through our day. We call it jacket-optional weather, and as far as we're concerned, it's just about the second-best thing to Summer Fridays about this time of year.
However, easing into this kind of spoon-fed perfection can still be a bit awkward, especially for those of us who just came out of the suckiest winter in recent history. So, we're here to offer five outfits to inspire you to really peel it back, or pile it on. Grab your jackets (or not — it really doesn't matter, for once), and click through.
