5 Lightweight Jackets To Wear Right Now

5 Lightweight Jackets To Wear Right Now


Now we’ve officially crossed the threshold into spring, the sun is beginning to shine a little bit brighter and the days seem to be lasting just that little bit longer. And while that seasonal shift might prompt you to pull your winter puffers and parkas off their coat hooks, we’d probably advise against completely disregarding jackets as viable wardrobe options for the time being. In fact, being the consummately versatile instruments that they are, jackets really are an all-season wardrobe must-have; the only significant variable is the type you choose to go for at any given time of year.

With that being said, a healthy rotation of lightweight jackets should certainly be kept close at hand for this particular time of year, even if just to help bridge the gap between the seasons. We’ve combed through our latest outerwear showcase and hand-picked a selection of jackets that will not only protect against the lingering chills of early spring evenings, but also elevate your outfits with some really unique layering options…

 Stone Island Membrana 3L TC Sage Green Jacket

Stone Island’s Membrana 3L TC Sage Jacket is an undisputed highlight from their SS23 collection. It really shines a light on the label’s steadfast dedication to performance and innovation in its garment design, especially with the patented ‘Membrana 3L TC fabric’ that the piece is built around. Its ultra-lightweight construction makes it an easy recommendation for the spring months, but if we’re being honest, its incredible all-around incredible weather resistance (rain, wind, snow, you name it!) makes it a fantastic option for pretty much any season.

Balenciaga continues to throw it back to classic 90s sportswear archetypes with their latest 3B Sports Icon Tracksuit Jacket. Bold colour blocking and vibrant tones contribute to the deliberately retro aesthetic and that expressive streetwear vibe that underpins all of Balenciaga’s ready-to-wear collections. You really have to try this one on to appreciate how incredibly light and airy this style is, making it an absolute dead cert for lightly layered spring ensembles and even a casual workout or two…

Kenzo artistic director Nigo delves deeper into his nautical fixation for the SS23 season with this ‘Kenzo Sailor' Workwear Jacket. It’s a wonderfully crafted piece of clothing that celebrates both Japan’s long history of appreciation for and interpretation of classic American workwear archetypes and Kenzo’s Parisian foundations. Everything from the assortment of varsity-style badges and appliques to the plaid jacket lining demonstrates Nigo’s deep understanding of the importance of detail and referencing in his mission to reinvent the profile of the label.

Valentino White Logo Maison Valentino Jacket

Pierpaolo Piccioli’s experimentation with American varsity tropes and themes is a pillar of his SS23 showcase (and arguably a few of his more recent Valentino collections). You could even go so far as to suggest that ‘varsity influence’ is an overarching trend for luxury fashion, in general, this season. But few varsity-inspired designs have got us talking as much as Valentino’s featured Maison Valentino Jacket right now. We love how it takes on a sort of hybridised appearance, with a cotton-poplin-style body that’s somewhat at odds with the jersey raglan sleeves; almost as if Piccioli’s decided to splice a shirt with a sweatshirt! It’s Americana, but very much done the Valentino way…

Matthew M. Williams continues to prove that sporty styles can be just as sleek and chic as any other, a sentiment reflected perfectly by this featured Nylon Jogger Jacket. The technical nylon membrane and racing stripe sleeve trims certainly accentuate the sporty undertone and general vibe but a monochromatic colour palette and markedly minimalistic design still communicate that moodier, tonally gothic aura that has come to define contemporary Givenchy. It’s the perfect palette cleanser for any off-duty wardrobe that’s beginning to get a little too overwhelmed by vibrant colours and loud graphics…
