Sleeveless blazers around $100
The celebs are rocking them. Sleeveless blazers are are an easy way to dress up an outfit — a skirt, a tee, anything, and add another layer of interest and color.
There are a couple different versions of this warm weather cardigan-alternative. Here are some of our favorite ways to wear sleeveless blazers and vests this summer, all under or just around $100.
Extra long and sleek
A simple, long, straight jacket without sleeves is a no-fail way to wear this style. Pick one in a bright, solid color. The oversized front pockets add interest to this lightweight, polyester top layer. Leith Long Sleeveless Blazer, on sale $46.80 (plus 5% Cash Back), nordstrom.com
With a waist tie
If you’re looking for a more fitted option, go for a sleeveless blazer with a waist tie or belt. This Silence + Noise jacket from Urban Outfitters comes in faded black and has enough details, pockets and a distinguishable collar to make sure it doesn’t look like some sort of cast-off bathrobe. Think of it as a sleeveless peacoat. Wear this as your summer jacket or keep it on all day as part of your outfit, indoors or out.

Sophisticated and menswear-inspired
Why should men be the only ones who can wear suit vests? Look for menswear-inspired vests this season, paired with matching shorts, like this classy outfit at J. Crew. The single-button drapey vest in light mauve is on sale for just over $100. Can’t you just see model/actress Ruby Rose in this? Makes us want to hit the golf course.

A denim alternative
Not sure about the sleeveless blazer deal? Looking for something a little safer, but still trendy? A simple sleeveless denim vest will get you on the same style page. We love Old Navy’s denim vests, like this one in dark crystal. Look for denim vests in a variety of different colors, and pair them with a sundress or even a jeans bottom — of a different color.
