It’s that time of year again – there’s a new season’s worth of men’s jackets to look at, so we’ve put together this guide to take you through some of the hottest styles. One great style of jacket for this season is the preppy office look. This is great for giving you the fresh, youthful look even in the hottest of weather, especially when you wear it in cool colors like beige and blue. The lightweight fabric is another bonus that makes this look perfect for summer.
The tailored jacket is also set to be really big. This is one item that never goes out of style as the flattering, fitted cut of the jacket is always popular among all sorts of men. Going for a single vent is a good option as this is very flattering and try and avoid double breasted jackets as it’s single breasted that’s set to be big this season. These also draw less attention to your middle, so they’re great for hiding any excess pounds.
Also seen out and about on this season’s catwalks were lots of biker jackets. These are mostly made out of leather, which is again fantastic as leather is eternally popular, meaning you’ll be able to wear your leather biker jacket for years to come. Often, this season’s jackets come with metal studs on them, which is great if you’re looking to make a statement. If you want something enduring, though, try going for just a few discreet studs on the shoulders of the jacket.
There’s also an interesting twist on the leather biker jacket around for the upcoming season – the fur lined or shearling jacket. These take the leather biker as a template and then embellish it to add extra style and interest. For something nice but subtle, try a simple fur collar on your jacket that won’t add too much bulk. Alternatively, a fully fur lined jacket will be ideal to keep you warm during the winter while also looking really fashionable and interesting.
Finally, you should also check out the soft tailored jacket, which is the perfect easy to wear option that’s ideal for summer evenings. Most commonly made out of linen, these jackets are meant to have creases and folds, so you don’t need to worry about ironing them out. Go for light, neutral colors for a cool look that matches the summer season and a slouchy, relaxed cut to the fabric that will be effortlessly stylish. Just make sure to stay on the right side of scruffy!
