Meghan Markle and Cindy Crawford are fans of anorak jackets

The days between summer’s official transition into fall are guaranteed to bring one thing every year: confusing weather. With it, the need for a lightweight jacket becomes a priority, and Hilary Duff is here to provide inspiration.

The How I Met Your Father star was recently seen wearing an anorak jacket over a full-on athleisure look. The oversized, utilitarian style in soft creme brought a trendy and functional feel to her casual post-workout outfit, complete with a spaghetti strap sports bra, black leggings, and black tennis shoes.

Duff’s casual take on the style while out in Los Angeles is the ideal way to ease into the return of added layers — and she’s joined by plenty of other celebrities in relying on the transitional piece. Earlier this year, both Cindy Crawford and Meghan Markle were seen wearing their own versions of the lightweight jacket as spring made way for summer, making the case for the year-round use style.

While Duff might have brought her jacket out of storage on the early side, it's only a matter of time before anorak jackets and other lightweight styles become less of a want and more of a need. It’s unclear exactly what brand of jacket Duff wore, but there is a seemingly endless selection of similar styles available.
