6 SLICK SUMMER JACKETS
By Steven Potter, 4 May 2021
If you're yet to invest in a sweet summer jacket, now's the time. While heatwaves, T-shirts and barely-there 'fits might spring to mind when you hear the word 'summer', we all know the reality in the UK is somewhat... different. Here are six different lightweight jacket styles guaranteed to see you through unpredictable climes with ease (and steez).
The classic bomber jacket
In a traditional olive-green-and-orange colourway, the classic bomber jacket is another wear-with-everything addition. Padded for those chilly pub-garden visits and heavy on utility style, it's practical and stylish in equal measure. This one from Scandi specialists Selected Homme is made from recycled plastic, so it looks good AND does good. Win.
This one’s a no-brainer. Its bold design 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 you can shove it in your backpack – no drama.
The worker jacket
The iconic worker-jacket silhouette has its roots in 19th-century France, but this suits-everything update is your daytime go-to. Lightweight and in a clean black finish, opt for a pair of work pants to complete your utilitarian aesthetic.
