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.
It’s the perfect mid-season coat, an alternative to your more basic trench coat, and is versatile enough to be worn over a summer dress, a linen suit, or simply jeans and a t-shirt.
