How to transform your look with the perfect coat or jacket!
Often the last to be put on before you leave the house, a coat or jacket should always be carefully considered along with the rest of your outfit. With so many styles available, our jacket and coat guide will help you effortlessly transform your look, whatever the weather!
The barn jacket
A fully lined and lightly-wadded jacket is a wardrobe must-have. With its timeless styling, the barn jacket is ideal for a country walk or even on a day out in town. The wax-like finish creates a polished and effortlessly stylish look, whilst holding up to unpredictable weather conditions. Team this jacket with a pair of vintage wash jeans, a cotton V-neck jumper and classic walking boots for the ultimate country-inspired look.
The casual lightweight jacket
The perfect all-purpose solution, a casual lightweight jacket can be either rugged or relaxed to suit any daytime look. Wear with a printed t-shirt and relaxed fit jeans for an air of effortless cool, or pair it with cargo comfort trousers or even shorts for those warmer days. It’s incredibly versatile, practical and timelessly stylish.
The wool blend reefer
Reefers are a top pick for the winter months and are a staple classical look. A traditional double-breasted shape reefer, with a touch of cashmere for added luxury and warmth, is an easy choice for the cooler weather.
The reefer can be perfectly worn with pleat or flat-front cord trousers and a soft-touch shirt, or alternatively, layer with a fine knitwear piece for a smarter look. This is perfect to wear to work or on a brisk evening out, teamed with any classic shirt and trousers.
The pique jersey jacket
With a classic blazer silhouette, this timeless shape offers casual yet sophisticated styling. It is easy to wear with a classic Oxford shirt, ultimate chinos and suede desert shoes for more formal occasions, or you can dress it down by teaming it up with a more casual check shirt, linen trousers and boat shoes. The appeal of this versatile piece is the combination of the traditional blazer styling with the comfort and ease of the pique jersey material. It’s the best of both worlds, really.
The Denim jacket
The on-trend denim jacket is the epitome of casual style. In a choice of washes, and “three season wear” this is a must-have for every style-conscious gent. No matter what age; a classic denim jacket will give you a sense of comfort and style.
A denim jacket can be dressed in many different ways. It may be a piece of work wear but can look amazing when paired with a dress shirt and tie and formal pants to give a very stylish business casual look. It’s a good way of dressing up a simple T-shirt or layering on top of a fine wool jumper. Team up with chino trousers and a white base-layer, or go brave and honour the double denim look by wearing with your favourite pair of jeans, but make sure the colours are in contrast.
Ideally darker shades of denim look better when paired with formal attire whereas lighter denim washes give a more casual and rugged look. May it be slacks, khakis, chinos or chords, as long as the colour contrast goes well all can be dressed up with a denim jacket for a trendy style that looks great in all seasons.
A jacket can be the ideal finishing touch on any outfit, so think carefully about the style you’re aiming for and the occasion, and you can find the perfect jacket to complement your look.
