Summer Coats

Summer coats are a big trend for this year. That may seem a bit daft – isn’t any coat we wear in the summer, a summer coat?! But the point this year is that we should be wearing them instead of any other summer cover-ups we might want.

Summer coats, of course, have to be light. There’s no point in something that overheats you, is there? But for a summer event, a garden party, a wedding, or a fancy BBQ, you might want to cover up when the sun goes down. And they are the perfect solution for your summer work wardrobe.

So, here’s a few summer coats we love.  Obviously pale shades work best in a summer coat. White is great, as is pale pink, carrying on the winter pink coat trend from last year. Cream or beige are always great colours for summer coats. Style-wise, choose from loose belted macs, or cocoon shapes, and collarless coats look great with dresses.

Textured fabrics like lace, and jacquard details work well on summer coats. Gorgeous duster coats in a 1960s inspired shape work well over jeans, or a smart dress.

Summer coats don’t need to be pale and quiet though! Try a denim coat – denim is huge this year. Or perhaps a coat in another big trend – the floral print.
