With our non-existent summer in full swing, and the relentless rain showing no sign of waning, summer jackets are becoming as important as a coat is in winter months! Fortunately there are some fabulous styles around, from classic trench macs (try Burberry (of course) and Warehouse for a more purse-friendly option), to leather-denim biker hybrids, so which jacket camp are you in? We've narrowed the offering down to four key styles; the effortless biker- good for throwing over jeans and tee combos and toughening up pretty dresses a la Alexa Chung and Poppy Delevigne, the sharply tailored blazer- as favoured by Olivia Palermo and Kristen Stewart. Then summer's hot new festival favourite-as worn by Kate Bosworth, supermodel Karolina Kurkova and Fearne Cotton- the super cool army/parka/camo style jacket which is currently taking the high street by storm. And finally, a summer jacket round up wouldn’t be complete without the humble denim jacket making an appearance: the '80s and '90s versions are both back in fashion favour with oversized and shrunken styles filling the shops. So what are you waiting for? If you haven't already it's time to snap one of these beauties up!
