7 SLICK SUMMER JACKETS

We’re all dreaming of heatwaves, but UK summertime can be a cruel customer – ☀️ one minute, ☔ the next 🤷 To help you find your perf staple, we’ve pulled a line-up of seven men's summer jackets that’ll get you through the szn with ease (and steez, obvs). From light summer jackets to loadsa transitional styles, scroll down for some serious inspo.

DENIM JACKETS

Easy to sling over any 'fit and ideal for layering, a men's denim jacket is the ULTIMATE wardrobe staple. For a chilled vibe, layer it over a hoodie, or double up on denim for a statement-making moment (avoiding JT circa 2001 where poss 🥴). And when that heat finally hits, wear your denim piece with a plain white tee – a classic look repped by style icons like James Dean, Steve McQueen and waaay more. Can the worker jacket get any more versatile?

TRENCH COATS

ICYMI, summer in the UK 🤝 showers, but we’re defo not cancelling our plans – just throw on a lightweight trench coat. Style yours with a smart shirt and straight-leg trousers, or go casual in sweats – this beige number is giving us major Burberry vibes, but we’re also loving the shiiiine on that green summer raincoat 🤩 And JSYK, we’ll be wearing these summer rain jackets under blue skies too.

BOMBER JACKETS

Simple to style and flattering-AF, the bomber jacket might be the slickest summer staple. When lost for inspo, go preppy – think polo tops, suit pants and chunky brogues 👞 Or take note from Pull&Bear and try out low-key utility-chic ✍️ Whatever you do, your lightweight summer jacket will do the talking.

GILETS

Would any men’s summer jacket selection be complete without a gilet? No sir. This half-and-half wonder keeps your core toasty on chilly days. Pop a utility gilet over a white tee to serve a tactical-meets-streetwear kinda vibe, or feel extra snug in fluffy borg. It’s the ultimate in-betweener.

SHACKETS

Can’t decide if it’s a shirt or a jacket day? Imagine the hours of your life a shacket could save you ⌛ Fans of normcore should sneak a peek at the COLLUSION offering – pair your lightweight summer jacket with baggy jeans and a pair of dad trainers to reach peak school-run energy 👟👟

LINEN JACKETS

Lightweight, breathable and lush to touch – linen is a fave for a reason. This check summer coat from Reclaimed Vintage is a top-tier companion on a date, pub garden pitstop or Friday night drink(s). Or strip it back with this minimalist style from ASOS DESIGN – wear it with matching trousers for a looovely, head-to-toe linen look 🤸
