Women's Lightweight Jackets
The Best Lightweight Jackets for Women
Winters may call for women's warm parkas and autumn makes a great time to pull out the warm bomber to keep the changing winds out. Spring is all about the bright splash of a short puffer jacket, and in summer you can quickly pack a lightweight unisex raincoat into your bag just in case the heavens open. There are so many different styles of coats and jackets for women and the trick is whittling it down to the few invaluable choices to complete your wardrobe.

The Different Coats and Jackets You Need
Parka, puffer, trench, bomber - there are so many different styles of coats and jackets to keep you warm and dry. Our easy go-to guide helps you decide which outerwear pieces will work for your wardrobe.
The women's parka is insulated, warm, and usually comes with a detachable hood. It's an iconic coat that can be a truly versatile wardrobe staple. You can pick a parka that is lightweight for those in-between seasons or you can opt for a parka jacket made from Gore-Tex® or insulated with down for the chillier winter months. The Parka coat is usually worn in classic green or black and can be worn over jumpers, dresses, skirts, and even office wear.
The bomber jacket is a shorter jacket that often has a military fashion look to it. They can also be called 'flight jackets'. These jackets tend to be quite boxy in shape and come with a ruched hem and zip-up front. You can play around with colour so much more when wearing a bomber jacket and they also tend to have more of an urban edge.
The Lightweight Rain Coat
The lightweight unisex raincoat is the ultimate wardrobe staple. This jacket will carry you through those shoulder seasons with the appropriate layers. As the name suggests, the lightweight element also makes this a great travel piece as you can pack it into your suitcase or shove it in your bag for any city trip or when out walking. The lightweight raincoat will come in a spellbinding choice of colours and styles. You can pick one in muted tones for a more versatile approach or make a statement with a splashy primary colour.
The trench coat is another British icon. Make sure you pick a windproof, waterproof, breathable trenchcoat and you have a jacket that will never let you down. Trenchcoats can be made from a range of different materials and the classic style will come in tan or beige with a belt to cinch in the waist. There are tons of variations on this style of course. What we love about the trench coat is how adaptable it is to any kind of occasion. The trench is the ultimate go-to coat for the office as it looks slick and chic when paired with either business or casual. You can also keep it fully casual with a jumper, jeans, and boots and it looks great thrown over a sparkly dress for a night out on the town.
The puffer coat or jacket is another joyful coat and has the motto of the bigger the better. The puffer coat can be cropped at the waist for those in-between seasons or the most recent style is to pick a heavily insulated version that falls all the way down to the shins. This style of coat is pure warmth. Completely padded, it will keep even the coldest weather firmly out. The longer style looks great in black or you can choose a cropped version in a range of patterns and bright colours for a look that lends itself well to the urban environment.
The Quilted Coat
Another serious winter coat - the quilted jacket or coat is all about snuggly warmth. You can pick a long quilted jacket with a hood and heavy cowl neck for the dead of winter or you can go bright and cosy with the cropped version in a loud and proud shade. If you want to opt for a more eco-friendly choice, you can pick your quilted coat to come stuffed with sustainable down rather than the classic animal version.
With so many styles of coats and jackets out there, you only need to invest in a couple of heritage pieces to see you through the seasons. A solid and waterproof warm winter coat is a must but so is a lightweight rainjacket to see you through those springs and summers when the skies open.
