Finally, if you have an event this summer, the J.Crew Ludlow Slim-Fit Linen Suit Jacket is a great option. J.Crew quoted that, “Introduced in 2017, our Ludlow unstructured suit has become a customer favorite”. This suit jacket is lightweight, versatile to dress up or down and unpadded for a comfortable feel. It also includes a two button closure and pockets for convenience. I also love the light blue shade of the jacket that’s perfect for summer. However, it does come with a steep price tag of $168.

A less expensive alternative is the Tasso Elba Men’s 100% Linen Blazer at Macy’s. This jacket looks very similar and is priced at just $60. Plus, it comes in several color options.
