We're in the midst of some seriously good weather right now, but hey, let's be realistic – even during a heatwave we need a light jacket to tide us through those evenings chilling in pub gardens. Here are six lightweight options, each with their own unique selling points. Which one will you go for?

Denim jacket

They may have fallen out of our wardrobe rotations for a few seasons, but the 90s-style denim jacket is back on the menu. Added bonus, you can pair this staple one with pretty much anything in your wardrobe. Sensible sartorial choice, sorted.

Deconstructed bomber jacket

The humble bomber jacket shows no signs of disappearing anytime soon – largely thanks to high-end designers and brands reinventing it in numerous fabrics and styles. Go for a deep-red version like this one to add a bit of colour to your SS18 arsenal. 

Classic bomber jacket

The timeless MA-1 bomber jacket, on the other hand, needs no added extras to justify a place in your warm-weather rotation. Pick one in a nice navy hue so you can easily rock this army surplus staple for the summer months and well into autumn/winter. 


This one’s a no-brainer. Its bold print will help you stand out in a crowd (especially useful when you’ve lost your mates at a festival). And it’s ultra-light, which means that you can shove it in your backpack and forget about it. And it has a hood – who doesn't love a hood?

Track jacket

The sports-inspired zip-up is another great one for stuffing into a bag during the sunny spells without worrying about creases. The only problem is the statement striped detailing on this Nike track top is so strong, you’re going to want to make it the key part of your ‘fit.

Worker jacket

The iconic worker jacket silhouette has its roots in 19th century France, but this sharp SS18 update of the proletarian staple is your daytime go-to. Lightweight and in a minimal brown shade, opt for a pair of work pants to complete your utilitarian aesthetic.
