We’re living in troubled times. No, we’re not talking about the housing crisis or the rise of the Kardashians as god like figures, we’re on about the awkward weather we’re experiencing. One day the sun is shining fooling us into thinking spring has arrived, the next we’re getting battered by apocalyptic storms. So how exactly do you prepare to dress for this indecisive climate? By getting yourself a versatile transitional jacket you can style for rain and shine, of course…
This butterfly printed souvenir jacket is about as spring as that first pint you have outside a pub without catching mild hypothermia, which can be simply teamed up with a plain tee and smart drawstring joggers. But on colder weekend sessions wrap up with a nude hoodie to complement the light colour of the Far East inspired statement.
A distressed denim jacket just looks better and better as time goes on, so it’s a real investment that can be doubled up with laddered grunge knitwear or worn with the sleeves rolled up over a revere collar shirt. Contrast this rock inspired look with a pair of casual sand coloured trousers for an unnatural hybrid outfit that’s more #OOTD than godless monstrosity.
Just because you don’t participate in weekend hikes or front an East London grime collective doesn’t mean you can’t pull off a windbreaker. Just steer clear from the full active wear look and wear it smart with a white denim overshirt and textured trousers or a tie dye tee and light wash jeans for when festival season rolls around.
Coming back from the ‘90s with a bang, the puffer jacket has become streetwear’s go to layer the past few seasons, suggesting it’s here to stay rather than a passing trend (fingers crossed this happens for Turkey Twizzlers too). So join the hype and layer yours up with a sportswear vibe by wearing a track jacket underneath when the sky’s grey and a baseball cap and trackie bottoms when the sun finally makes an appearance.
Channel your inner Americana preppy boy with a collegiate jacket, complete with embroidered number and contrast sleeves. This can be your everyday jacket that goes with absolutely everything, from jeans and jumpers to denim shirts and suit trousers.
