Short of jacking in your job and jumping a one-way journey to the northern hemisphere, there are few surefire ways of staying both dry and stylish for summer. Luckily, one of them is owning a really good jacket, which is where we come in. Here are six laid-back but style-forward options, each with their own unique selling points. Just take your pick.

Waterproof? No. Showerproof? Pretty much. A denim jacket isn’t built to withstand biblical rain, but it’ll see you right if you’re caught in a brief downpour between the bus and the pub. And you’ll look excellent, especially if you change things up with this fresh two-tone version.

The bomber shows no signs of disappearing anytime soon – largely thanks to designers and brands updating it with the latest materials and refinements. Here, a baseball collar, exposed pockets and zip detailing elevate this classic cool-weather layer.

The timeless MA-1 bomber jacket, on the other hand, needs no added extras to justify a place in your winter wardrobe rotation. But a bright and breezy colourway, like this primo pink shade, will freshen up this army surplus staple right into spring.

This one’s a no-brainer. It has a hood, which means you can keep your hair in check. Its bold print will help you stand out in a crowd. And it’s ultra-light, which means you can shove it in your backpack and forget about it until a random downpour hits your hood.

The sports-inspired zip-up is another great one for stuffing into a bag during the sunny spells without worrying about creases. Only problem is, the statement jacquard print on this adidas Originals track top is so strong, you’re going to want to make it the key part of your all day decor.
