The Best Spring/Summer Jackets For Men

With spring just around the corner and summer not far off, many are looking forward to warmer days and brighter nights, and it is fair to say that this time of year is one that the vast majority of people love. As the weather starts to change, many will be starting to swap their autumn/winter wardrobe for their spring/summer wardrobe and thinking about whether there are any additional pieces that they need to invest in this year. 

As you put your winter puffer jackets and parka coats away for another year, you may be wondering which men’s coats and jackets are best for spring/summer when we’re greeted by tricky in-between temperatures. Thankfully, there is a range of outerwear pieces that are brilliant for this time of year and they can keep you warm and dry but prevent you from overheating. Below we have looked into some of the best spring/summer jackets for men. 

Denim jackets 

This is a must-have jacket for men and women as we head into spring/summer and it is a staple piece for every wardrobe that can be worn over almost any base layer. A denim jacket isn’t too heavy, but it still provides an additional layer when required, and with a vast range of styles available, there is a denim jacket for everyone. Many will play it safe and opt for a medium or dark blue denim jacket, but for something more unique, take a look at an ecru colour instead.

Shirt jackets

Not too dissimilar from a chore jacket, shirt jackets have soared in popularity over the past few years and they are the perfect jacket for men during the spring/summer months. As the name suggests, this simple style of jacket is essentially a thicker shirt and shirt jackets really are versatile, comfortable and easy to style. Shirt jackets are available in a number of materials and colours, but something like a navy corduroy style shirt jacket is a classic choice. 

Harrington jackets

Many will say that a Harrington jacket is quintessentially a spring/summer jacket and they are most definitely a style that everyone should have in their wardrobe at this time of year. This lightweight shorter jacket is easy to dress up or dress down, and it is undoubtedly perfect for everyday wear. It isn’t uncommon for people to have more than one Harrington style jacket in their wardrobe and many will have one darker colour like black and one lighter colour like stone

Windbreaker jackets 

This style of jacket has come a long way since the 90s and windbreakers are no longer the brightly coloured and patterned nylon jackets that they used to be. Whilst vintage designs are still available, more modern windbreakers are a common sight nowadays. It is fair to say that this is a brilliant jacket to have to hand, especially if it is waterproof, and it is the perfect ultra-lightweight layer. It is worthwhile considering ‘stormbreaker’ jackets too. 

Mac jackets 

For something slightly more structured and dressy, a mac jacket or a trench coat is the best option for this time of year. This three-quarter length iconic design will be able to keep you warm and dry on colder days, but it won’t be too heavy if the sun starts shining. Whilst mac jackets tend to be simplistic in design with a boxy silhouette, trench coats are usually more detailed with a belted waist and double-breasted front, but they are both a brilliant option for spring/summer. 

Visiting a men’s clothes shop in Dublin 

It is fair to say that all of these men’s coats and jackets aren’t just perfect for the spring/summer seasons as the weather starts to get a little bit warmer, but they are also relatively timeless too. Whilst men’s fashion is subject to trends, you can purchase any of the different pieces mentioned above knowing that they can be worn year after year. What’s more, they can be dressed up or dressed down too, so they really are the perfect addition to any wardrobe.
