Jackets are a wardrobe staple year-round and a must-have for transitional dressing . Explore our guide to timeless jackets to find styles you’ll love, including lightweight jackets for mild weather and padded jackets for cold days. Learn how to wear them with various outfits for any occasion, whether smart or casual, to get the most from your outerwear.
Leather jackets are stylish and versatile, pairing effortlessly with any look. Our range includes several designs, from classic biker jackets to blazers and collarless styles.
Whether you prefer genuine leather, suede, faux leather or faux shearling, these materials have all-important insulating properties. Leather jackets are ideal for spring and autumn when it’s not quite cold enough for a coat but you need to keep the chill at bay.
Wear your leather jacket with a t-shirt, jeans and trainers on casual days or with a dress and heeled boots for evenings and special occasions. Add a jumper for a cosy mid-layer during the transitional period from autumn to winter.
Wondering how to wear a denim jacket? Luckily, this is one of the most versatile styles in your wardrobe, so you can’t go wrong! Denim jackets are a casual and lightweight option, making them perfect for spring and summer.
Throw a denim jacket over a cotton dress on breezy summer evenings or mild spring days. Pair them with casual trousers, printed maxi skirts, t-shirts or blouses for a laid-back look. Alternatively, create a unique double denim look with jeans or shorts in a matching shade. Add a pair of sandals or trainers to complete your outfit.
Need a jacket for cold weather? Padded jackets and parkas are the warmest winter jackets for women. These jackets keep you warmer than any other design, thanks to their insulating padding.
Wear them over any outfit to keep cosy whilst out and about – from casual looks to evening attire. Choose a padded jacket with a hood for extra protection from the elements or a waterproof design for rainy days. Alternatively, a padded gilet is an excellent mid-layer.
Although practicality and warmth are the main benefits of padded jackets, you don’t have to compromise on style. Explore our collection to find the best winter jackets for extreme cold weather. We also have padded thermal outerwear crafted from our innovative Thermolactyl fabric.
Whether you’re searching for a smart jacket for parties, work or formal occasions, our collection has you covered. These tailored styles make any outfit feel more polished and come in various colours, prints and cuts to suit your taste.
Blazers are one of the most versatile smart jacket designs, whatever the season or occasion. Wear them with jeans and trainers to elevate your casual looks, over a summer dress for an extra layer on chilly evenings, or with tailored trousers and flats to create a matching suit.
What is the difference between a coat and a jacket?
The main difference between coats and jackets is the length. Jackets are shorter than coats, ending at the hip or mid-thigh. Coats are longer, finishing around the knee, mid-calf or ankle.
How to store coats and jackets
We recommend hanging your coats and jackets in a wardrobe to keep them crease-free and prevent misshaping. Coats and jackets can be bulky, but try not to cram too many items together, leaving sufficient space between each garment for air to circulate.
There are a few options for storing coats and jackets out of season. You could:
- Pack them away. Fold them neatly and pack them away into plastic boxes with lids, keeping them free from moisture and safe from pests. Layer acid-free tissue paper between each item and include moth-repellent balls, blocks or strips for extra protection.
- Hang them in a wardrobe. If you have enough room, you can hang your coats and jackets in a wardrobe or storage cupboard. Use garment bags to protect them from sunlight, moisture and pests.
