The utility trend has been in circulation for a couple of seasons now but is still going strong. Lightweight utility jackets are simple and practical, easy to pair and are a great piece to be able to just slip on when leaving the house.
Perfect for beer garden weekends.
In a nutshell the Harrington is a functional jacket with high collar and centre zip.
It can have many variations on this base
Originally known only as a Baracuta jacket the Harrington is a lightweight, waist-length jacket made of cotton, polyester, wool or suede. Designs often incorporate traditional Fraser tartan or checkerboard-patterned lining
Another easy light-weight jacket that can be paired with a smart casual outfit or over a T-shirt at the weekend
This season we are really seeing a new style of bomber jacket. It retains the classic front zipper, knitted cuffs and collar but adds a modern feel and flexibility, making it easier to pair and not necessarily the traditional statement piece of an outfit.
If you think bombers are dated, then we recommend takings a look at these new versions and see if any spark your interest.
They are a great jacket to have in your repertoire.
Sherpa Pullovers and fleeces
If you’re looking for something much more on the casual side, we really like the look of some of the Borg/Sherpa pullovers and fleeces coming out this season. They work for a trip to the beer garden or weekend walks but are also great for just everyday wear.
They give the extra warmth which is still needed at this time of year. Although it’s more like a fleece it does make sure that you look like you have put some effort in to your outfit even though you’ve just pulled it on.
This season we have seen the rise of the Shaket/Over-shirt for both men and women.
The perfect layering piece which gives you the warmth needed in spring without having to lug a coat around with you.
Many of these styles are in a thick flannel fabric can give a smart causal look as well as a more weekend vibe depending on what you style it with.
