We looked at some wonderful summer jackets yesterday featuring labels like Rene Gurskov and Moncler but for the more budget conscious among you here is a pick of summer jackets from the high street.

At the high end of the market Dexter Wong‘s cropped trench for Topshop is £80 which gets you smart tailoring and an unconventional shape. Burton‘s coated jacket is reduced to £25 and has a wonderfully masculine silhouette. K-Ways were the in thing when I was at school, and they’re back with collaborations from A.P.C and Limoland. This classic version is just £45 and the punchy yellow will team up a treat with smart grey trousers. Even cheaper is Uniqlo‘s windbreaker with a neon lining, combining functionality with good looks it’s only £19.99

Dream team: lightweight summer jackets

Looking for summer jackets might be slightly premature but it’s never too early to shop, and with a chunky jumper a lightweight waterproof layer will more than suffice for March.

These jackets are all fairly pricey, but would make fantastic investments if you have a bit of money burning a hole in your pocket. Rene Gurskov‘s bomber is in a simple colour but tailoring details like shrunken buttons and origami pocket flaps make it a bit more special. Paul Smith’s jacket is for the more formally inclined Brandites, the colour is simply awesome and will look wonderful with a summer palette. On the more utilitarian end of the scale Moncler‘s khaki jacket is so unassumingly stylish it will take you from office to pub to disco to wherever you kids hang out. Lastly Lyle and Scott‘s jacket is a classic shape and again a great colour, a perfect choice if you fancy something more conventional which retains a bit of interest.

See after the jump for product details and stick around to see our budget picks tomorrow!
