Shop It Right Now: 22 Printed Jackets to Add to Your Wardrobe

These patterned blazers and bombers are way more chic than a boring cardigan.

Just when you’re feeling so very grateful for the gloriously warm sunshine and rising temps—BAM: The attack of the air conditioning throws a curveball into your hot-weather wardrobing. Suddenly the carefree sundresses, shoulder-baring tanks, and breezy sleeveless blouses necessary for surviving the outdoors become totally inappropriate for the frigid indoors. Sure, you could throw on a basic cardi or wrap yourself with that emergency scarf you’ve stuffed into your desk drawer. But why would you? Here’s a chicer approach: Try a structured blazer (for work) or a soft, silky bomber jacket (for play). This year’s infatuation with bold, no-wallflowers-need-apply prints means these pieces are far from boring.

Click through the gallery to see 22 of our favorite options. Our suggestion: Stock your closet (and/or office) with these babies, layer as needed, and compliment yourself on sidestepping the sartorial status quo. Problem solved.
