Shop 8 Jackets To Brighten Up May Gray, June Gloom

Looks brought to you by the marine layer….

Southern California has the reputation for always being sunny, but locals know that come late spring, early summer, you can count on cloudy skies and cooler temps, particularly in the first half of the day. Known as “May Gray” and “June Gloom,” the seasonal phenomenon is basically just a more dramatic expression of something we see year-round: the marine layer, which is a shallow slice of cool air just above the water, which often helps form fog or clouds. As summer goes on, the ocean temperatures eventually catch up to the warmer air and the gloom goes away. Until it does, Angelenos should plan to dress in layers. From denim trenches to metallic motos, shop eight jackets to throw over your ‘fits for the next couple of months.
