The Four Sport Jackets You Need This Season

The Four Sport Jackets You Need This Season

March 14th, 2019

With the weather warming up, it’s time to start thinking about the key pieces you’ll want in your wardrobe this season.

Although suits can always be worn year-round, the warmer months are more suited to sport jackets. They travel well and there are infinite ways to style a jacket depending on the weather, the occasion, and your personal tastes.

Here are our four must-have sport jackets for Spring/Summer 2019.

1. The High Blue Sport Jacket

Spring is the time to start pulling out the brighter colours, and a high shade of blue is just the ticket. It looks great with other vibrant hues, like a washed red trouser and bright pocket square. Look for a silk or linen blend fabric, which creates a fresh summer texture.

2. The Statement Navy Blazer

A navy blazer is always a staple, but this spring, you’ll start seeing details that make this old standard stand out. If you're looking for an updated navy jacket, we recommend choosing one with a textured fabric and a large peak lapel. Wear it with berry tones, a light blue or grey trouser, and suede driving shoes.

3. The Brown Jacket

People often think of brown as a fall colour, but this season we’re embracing warm, vibrant shades of brown for the spring and summer. The key here is to choose a jacket that has lighter tones running through it, like a light blue check or a textured tonal weave. We love this jacket worn with a light wash jean, polo shirt, and leather sneakers for a smart casual look.

4. The Berry Tone

From deep purples to vibrant reds, berry tones are taking over this season. These colours can almost be worn as a neutral, because they work well with so many other shades. It’s an absolute must-have. Wear a plum sport jacket with a patterned dress shirt and grey trousers for a top-notch office or event look.
