It has all the natural warming power of down (because we all know how fickle spring can be) but in a super-lightweight design. And as if that wasn’t enough, it’s also reversible and packable!
To put it through its paces, we enlisted the help of our talented in-house stylist, Rachel, to create 6 fantastic looks, from smart to casual, and everything in between.
Rachel says: “I love this jacket, I want one in every colour. I mean, it just goes with everything! I was amazed how lovely and snug it was when I tried it on, yet it isn’t in the slightest bit bulky. We’ve really got it right with this jacket, and I think every woman needs one in her wardrobe.”
“I love to follow trends in fashion, but I also think you can’t beat a classic look. So I’ve combined the two here: classic stripes with one of this season’s biggest trends – coloured denim. It’s the perfect look for a day of shopping followed by lunch with your girlfriends. (Not least because the jacket takes up no space in your bag) And these butter-soft suede loafers have to be felt to be believed, they will keep your feet happy through as many shops as you can manage! Switch round the stripes at the top and pair with a denim skirt for an ultra feminine take on the look. And to finish it off, add a pop of spring colour (I just LOVE this new shade, Light Watermelon Sorbet). Hey presto, city break/coffee date here you come!
Smart and sophisticated
“Neutrals and monochrome are the staple of any wardrobe, whatever the season, so this colourway of the jacket is one of my favourites. Using the tan side, I paired it with an easy-fit white shirt and white trousers, broken up with a black belt and ballet cute pumps. It’s an effortless work look, which can just as easily be worn at the weekend. Turn the jacket inside out and you have the ultimate everyday, black jacket. Flattering with goes-with-everything convenience, it’s the ideal choice to help you ease into down time. Our lovely new Shaker Polo Neck Jumper adds a bit of texture for interest and our new backless loafers are the ideal smart-yet-casual finishing touch.
“Everyone is craving a bit of colour at this time of year, so the blue/black jacket is a great option to lift your spirits and inject some colour into your wardrobe. A day out and about? Cover every eventuality by popping on this cheerful floral print jumper with these comfy boyfriend jeans, grab an umbrella and this jacket and you have everything you need. If the forecast looks particularly promising, I’ve chosen this gorgeously girlie striped t-shirt dress (in the coral colour I love!) and a pair of trainer pumps to welcome the sunshine. And if the good old British weather does its thing and changes its mind, you’ve got your wonder-jacket which will fit neatly in your bag and look great worn over the top.”
