As far as summer trends go, few have been so unexpected as quilted jackets. They are a natural extension to last winter's duvet coat, but with a decidedly more bohemian spin.
Think florals, tie dye and patchwork fabrics that will instantly at that Sienna-Miller-circa-2006 touch.
That said, for a more classical approach to the quilted jacket, neutral shades are also key. I'm thinking in particular of The Frankie Shop's olive cropped oversized coat, which the label can't seem to restock fast enough.
The trend has been going down a storm on the streets of fashion week in London and Paris, as well as taking over the virtual world on Instagram, spotted on my favourite influencers and celebrities.
Ready to get on board with the quilted jackets trend? Here are some of the best styles to shop now.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
