If there ever was outerwear for your warm weather jaunts it would have to be a lightweight anorak. Breezy California style is embodied in these hooded numbers and when aiming to layer in the upcoming months this should be a go to. When topping off that uniform of a white tee, cuffed chino shorts, Vans and a pair of shades grab an anorak like those shown below. You'll be simultaneously channeling The Beach Boys and 80's skate/surf rats before you know it. If your goal isn't to be the most gnarly dude with the most radical gear when the temperature peaks then I guess you can skip the rest of this post. Hopefully as S/S '10 lines start rolling out there will be plenty of options to choose from in a range of prices and I will be sure to highlight them over here as they pop up.
