TheFind Guest Post: Summer Must-Have: The Lightweight Cargo Jacket



No matter how warm the weather gets in these freakish, pre-summer heat waves we've been getting from time to time here in San Francisco, there is always a handful of stylish (if not unseasonal) girls on my morning bus ride who insist on rocking their winter cargo coats, rain or shine. Sure, a military-inspired jacket is a versatile and stylish wardrobe staple, and we hardly experience real seasons here in the Bay Area, but there's still something to be said about modifying one's wardrobe for the weather at hand! Well, good news, military trend lovers -- summer isn't ready to give up on the cargo coat just yet. Just in time for warmer weather, a slew of more lightweight, summer-friendly versions of the military-inspired jacket have cropped up to keep you covered on the chillier summer nights or breezy mornings that require a little extra layering over that maxidress or romper. Cropped silhouettes, breathable twill or linen, and more seasonal colors like cream and slate make for a perfect update to fall's favorite jacket!
