We’re all roasting in the summer heat, so the thought of putting on a coat is the last thing on our minds. But you might want to think about jackets a little right now as many styles are currently in deep clearance, what with stores trying to make room for new fall items.

I’ve always believed outerwear is one arena in which the Europeans have us beat…they tend to look so polished and 9 times out of 10 it is because they are wearing a chic topper or wrap. Let’s give them a run for their money and amp up our own style with classic outerwear!

This navy trench, similar to the one sported by Duchess Catherine, is currently on sale at Land’s End, along with many other cute styles, including the green gingham trench and black quilted topper pictured above.

This sweet yellow raincoat is less than half of its original price at Eddie Bauer along with some pretty blazers.

I know we’re smack dab in the middle of summer, but is anybody else stocking up on coats? On the first crisp day of fall, you won’t regret it! Happy Monday friends!
