Yes, summer is here, but as much as we’d like to be able to venture out jacket-free without a worry, it’s perhaps sensible to have a jacket on hand. Summer jackets can take a nice summer outfit right up to fabulous, so don’t be afraid to make the most of your jacket collection this summer. Here we’ve compiled a list of eight summer jacket styles that are all well-worth investing in, to keep you looking cool but feeling warm this summer.

Prints are totally in this season, so liven up a plain outfit with a printed jacket if you aren’t quite ready to go prints all over. A print jacket will instantly lift your wardrobe, making every outfit look as though it’s been planned in detail rather than just thrown on at the last moment.
