If you’re reading this from a hot country, lucky you. For many of us, the weather is still absolutely freezing so unfortunately we haven’t been able to hang up our jackets just yet.
We’re in this awkward stage where it’s warming up slightly, but most days are still cool – and transitional weather is notoriously difficult to dress for. We can’t wait to finally be able to head out in just a top, pair of shorts and sunnies, but we’re not there just yet.
The good news is there are some super cute lightweight jackets to wear while we wait. Designers seem to have had our troubles in mind when they released their collections for spring summer 2021.
There’s the lightweight trench coat from Louis Vuitton, Celine’s multi-colour anorak, and the selection of neon blazers we’ve seen everywhere this spring – but the high street is awash with affordable options too.
Of course, we already did some sleuthing for you. From Rixo to House of Sunny, we’ve gathered the best lightweight jackets to wear while we wait for summer. The best part? Prices start at £14.99 — yes, really.
