19 Lightweight Jackets Well Worth The Investment

I’ve never invested much in transitional jackets before, simply because it feels like I don’t get the chance to wear them for very long. Before you know it, the weather has changed again.

Despite this, jackets are always something I feel my transitional wardrobe is missing. I’m aiming to invest in more practical pieces this year, rather than wasting my money on trend-led items I wear once and lose to the depths of my wardrobe soon afterwards.

You’d be surprised how many brands are already dropping their autumn collections. & Other Stories, Mango, Zara and ASOS are among the high street brands that have launched coats, jackets, boots and loafers for winter, which has left me feeling excited for the change in seasons.

While I’ve been looking, I’ve collated an edit of my top 19 lightweight jackets for the transitional period. With tweed blazers, denim, quilted and more jackets dropping, I’m spoiled for choice (and now you will be too).
