4 Summer Coats to Cover Every Occasion

Posted on 30 Mar 2018 by Anna Scott
As all sensible, stylish women know, the best sorts of jackets are the ones you can use for more than one occasion. Not the most exciting way to approach your seasonal cost-buying but by far the most cost-effective if you’re on a tight budget. By all means pick out your perfect statement summer coat if you have the funds, but for everyone else, here are our essential summer coats that should cover all eventualities in the coming months…


The Blazer

We’ll start with perhaps the most versatile of the lot. No wardrobe should be without a smart summer blazer because it can go with literally everything. Ok, maybe not gym leggings but pretty much every other item in your closet. Match with your pencil skirt for a smart office look, pair with skinny jeans if going out for a light lunch or stick over your favourite floral maxi dress if it gets a bit chilly out. And if you’d rather something that falls below the hips, then the current trend for boyfriend blazers will do very nicely indeed.

The Parka

But then there are the times when you need something just a little it more practical. A stylish parka can be so much more than something you wear to take the dog for a walk. It can be a fashion statement when paired with a great skirt and ankle boots, it can be a colourful addition to your outfit if you go for something bright instead of the more common navy blues and khaki greens. And yes, it can be useful when walking the dog and you need something with a hood, just in case of a summer downpour.

The Denim Jacket

The more casual relation to the summer blazer, has there every been a wardrobe like this that simply refuses to go out of fashion? There is no better summer pairing than a stonewashed denim jacket and floral summer dress. Everyone should have a good quality denim jacket at their disposal. And if you find yourself getting bored of it for whatever reason, then you should keep it hanging in your wardrobe, because it’s guaranteed that you will love it again one day.

The Mac

We all love a good quality winter coat that we can wear out in the evening or to work. The summer equivalent in the double-breasted rain mac, preferably in a nice beige hue and very much channelling the 1980s powerful business woman look. But this doesn’t have to be worn with JUST office attire. A good mac will always look great with a smart pair of jeans, some nice heels and roomy bag slung over your shoulder.

Of course, there will be days when you don’t need a jacket at all. But let’s face it, these will be few and far between because we are in the UK.
