Summer is a tricky time for die-hard duvet fans. If you're like me, you crave weight on top of you as you sleep. This gets tough around June when snuggling under a comforter becomes an inferno. If you're looking for an attractive way to sub out your duvet for something that is still going to feel substantial, then I got you — try any of these coverlets, which range from light to mid-weight.

1. Parachute Surplus Multi Pieced Quilt (One Size), $299

A limited-edition Parachute creation, we're loving the desert-y hues of this garment-dyed linen quilt.

2. Cultiver Quilted Bedcover (One Size), $450

With just the right amount of quilted detailing and an absolutely to-die-for hue, this Cultiver bedcover is our top choice. While it might be a pricier side, trust us, Cultiver's linens are worth the investment.

3. Coyuchi Topanga Organic Matelasse Blanket (Full/Queen), $228

Okay, so if you are in the market for something lightweight that still completely covers your bed, try Coyuchi's matelasse blanket, which is irresistibly soft. Bonus: It's got stripes on one side and color on the other so you can reverse whenever you get bored.

4. Opalhouse Leopard Spot Matelasse Coverlet (Full/Queen), $79.99

Go on, have some damn fun with your summertime bedroom look. This leopard print coverlet from Target is just the spunky touch to give your space a real wow-factor.

5. CB2 Triangle Ivory Coverlet (Full/Queen), $139

Looking for something sweet but neutral? Try CB2's textured geometric coverlet, which has just enough weight to keep you cool but also cozy.

6. H&M Textured Cotton Bedspread (One Size), $49.99

This woven cotton fabric will be just a touch heavier than a top sheet, for those balmy nights were you still need a bit of coverage.

7. Anthropologie Washed French Terry Quilt (Queen), $248

Anthro itself says this is the ideal topper for the warmer seasons. The secret? Washed French terry, which is super breathable.

8. Lulu and Georgia Zuma Blanket (Queen), $187

Waffled, stonewashed cotton not only looks super chic on a bed, it's also a great design for breathability. Layer it with a top sheet if you want just a bit more warmth.
