Style – summer jackets and blazers: Albam, Merc, River Island and more

By Stefano on June 17th, 2013

What with the vagaries of the British summer is sage advice never to leave home without a jacket. And if you need something a bit smarter than the lightweight navy anorak with white piping that the world and his dog has been stepping out in this June, check out these slightly more formal summer jackets.

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!
