It would be nice to think that in a couple of months time we’ll be ditching our layers and stepping outside in what we like to call ‘t-shirt weather’. Unfortunately, when it comes to the great British weather we’re all too aware that we are going to need to be prepared with an extra layer pretty much all year round. Although we won’t be ridding ourselves of all of our layers, we will be able to lighten up when it comes to our outerwear and put our heavy coats to one side in exchange for lightweight jackets – the perfect excuse to treat yourself to something new.
Here we have a selection of jackets that are not only perfect for the (slightly) warmer months but also fall in line with some of the up-and-coming season’s biggest trends. Stay one step ahead of your mates and the weather by checking out our picks below.
A bomber jacket should be your number one investment piece for the spring/summer season, set to be one of this years biggest outerwear trends, you’re going to want to get ahead with this one. They’re going to be everywhere, so you’re going to want a bomber jacket that has something a little bit different to everybody else’s and this super-modern design from CP Company will give you just that. This jacket has been constructed from a lightweight nylon that has been garment dyed for a unique and bold colour – just what you need as it starts to warm up.
Shades of green, particularly olive and khaki, are going to be big news this season. If you think that this is going to be the colour trend for you then this iconic G9 harrington jacket from Baracuta will make for the perfect everyday piece that will bring your look right up to date. This jacket has also been constructed from a water-repellent fabric, ideal for when the British weather can’t quite make its mind up (most of the time!).
Updated versions of old-school sportswear designs are still going strong this season, and rightly so! This track jacket from the ultimate retro sportswear brand – Fred Perry, is a double hit, as this lighter shade of blue is also going to be one of spring/summer’s freshest, new colour trends. This super casual jacket is perfect for when you need just that little bit of extra warmth on a breezy summers day.
Sandy coloured shades such as light brown’s and beige are going to be everywhere this season, so we advise you start stocking up in these colours to keep ahead! Clothing that has made it’s way from military to streetwear (such as the field jacket and bomber jacket) has to be one of the biggest themes to come out of this season’s collections, the bomber jacket is going to be massively popular but if you’re a fan of more of a smarter look, then the field jacket is for you!
Denim jackets are once again going to be one of this spring/summer’s most popular outerwear choices and this jacket from True Religion, that is constructed from a lightweight denim-look cotton, is the perfect option to stay on top of this trend whilst also keeping cool. This denim jacket is also equipped with a hood, meaning you’ll be prepared for whatever our un-predictable weather may throw at you.
