We’d love to be able to leave the house without a jacket during the summer months – but sadly, the British weather almost always requires some sort of added protection from the weather.
Luckily, throwing on a coat or jacket doesn’t have to ruin your carefully-planned outfit. Whether you’re looking for a classic buy to wear year after year, or you want to be on-trend with the latest high street buys, we’ve rounded up the styles for every scenario this summer.

A true British classic, the trench coat is a timeless buy that’s well worth investing in. If you have cash to spare you could invest in a Burberry trench, but if your budget is more high street then rest assured that there’s plenty of affordable buys. Hit up places like M&S, Next and Uniqlo, and don’t be afraid to move away from the traditional beige style for something a bit different.
Realistically, you’re going to need one of these this summer. However, it doesn’t have to conjure up images of hiking or wet weekends; rain macs are shaky their dowdy image as the high street offers up colourful and stylish designs. Here’s a top tip: size up to make sure you can fit a jumper or cardi underneath – those summer nights can get chilly!
Smarten up your jeans or dresses with this season’s trendiest tailoring. A black blazer is all well and good, but you might want to try something new for this season; checks and pastels are particularly on-trend right now.
Style with everything from culottes and trainers to midi dresses with sandals.
Linen is everywhere right now, and nothing screams summer more than a lightweight jacket in a cool fabric. We love the cream and white versions available in most stores, but you could also try a pastel number if you want to add some colour to your look.
Just like a trench, you’ll never go wrong by investing in a good leather jacket. Nowadays the high street has some great, quality versions that will last for years and make any outfit look instantly cool. Go for classic black if you want something that works 365 days a year, or tap into the season’s trend with a cool brown version.
These lightweight jackets are dreamy for summer days – and they look so effortlessly cool. Throw one on over your jeans and t-shirt for an instantly trendy weekend look.
There’s a reason almost every high street store has their own selection of denim jackets; they work with literally everything in your wardrobe. Go oversized if you want to perfect the cool, slouchy look and feel super comfortable. And before you ask – yes, you can do double denim.
