Jackets for the summer

We’re having a bit of a weather meltdown this summer in Manchester; we don’t know whether it’s going to be sunny for the rest of the day or when the rain will start! Typical British summer! 

We’ve picked five of the best jackets for women and men, ranging from leather and suede styles to light jackets perfect for layering.

Just because the sun is out, doesn’t mean that you have to hang up the leather for the summer! Try this gorgeous little cropped jacket in a suede and perforated leather mix from Barneys; the cropped style is perfect for the warmer weather, while keeping you protected and your wardrobe up to date. 

We’re loving the influx in people wearing all white, it’s such a clean look and is synonymous with summer and dressing for holidays. If you want to go all white, or you just want a white piece to team up for monochrome looks, take a look at the Barneys Originals women’s dirty stone asymmetric biker jacket in leather look material, that works as hard as your leather jacket but is more purse friendly. 

If you’re looking for a statement jacket this summer, this suede contrast jacket from Barneys is a great investment and the bright coral colour of the suede looks striking against any ensemble. 

The IL2L parka is an essential jacket all year round. When the weather warms up, the removable fur insert can be left at home to leave a great utility layer, perfect for the summer!

We’ve found five of the best jackets for men too, starting with this Criminal Damage windbreaker jacket with bandana print detail. This jacket is a great everyday jacket, with the print adding to the classic style. 

If you love a bit of leather, this canvas multi pocket jacket with leather look sleeves is a great addition to your wardrobe. This style is incredibly flattering and the collar and shoulders create a structured look to an otherwise casual jacket.

Another jacket from Criminal Damage features in our top 5 summer jackets. The Galaxy Bomber is a sure-fire wardrobe update with a digital galaxy print. 

If you want to switch up your leather style, we’ve got a range of suede jackets that look and feel amazing. Take a look now, fall in love with a soft suede jacket in brown, tan sand or navy and take it through the year with you. 

The IL2L men’s parka is as versatile as the women’s version, and the removable fur insert is just ideal for the unpredictable weather that we experience in the UK. 

Which is your go-to jacket for the summer months?
