Wardrobe Essential: A Colorful Sport Coat

Christina Garofalo

A fast way to update your spring/summer wardrobe with a shot of personality is to add a bright-colored sport coat. They’re appearing a range of colors, including bright blue, crimson, and yellow; in versatile, lightweight fabrics; and in easy-to-wear unstructured silhouettes that work with everything from sleek trousers to jeans. Here are our top picks for the season.  -Christina Garofalo
