High St vs High End: sleeveless jacket

High St vs High End sleeveless jacket

A sleeveless jacket is great for this tentatively spring-like month. It can be easily slung on over jumpers or several layers of clothing when the weather can’t quite make its mind. We’ve picked two chic numbers from a High Street favourite and a slightly higher end brand.

It’s always tough to dress for the changeable weather at this time of year. Sometimes it feels like the outfit we put on in the morning is completely inappropriate by the time lunch hits and the sun has decided to make a dramatic appearance. A sleeveless jacket – whether in a trench, duster or gilet style – helps bridge that awkward style gap.

We love these two from New Look and Mango – the fox-brown colour is neutral enough to go with changing spring wardrobes as we embrace a bit more colour, and more interesting than just a plain nude, black or grey trench. Have a look below and see which is your favourite.

Find the perfect sleeveless jacket for spring

Our two top picks – whatever your budget.

High Street – Sleeveless Waterfall Jacket, New Look, £29.99

New Look is a surefire way to discover bargain imitations of top trends, and this sleeveless jacket proves the point. We love it paired here with jeans and a simple breton tee, but it would look equally fab over smart work trousers and a cream blouse. Wear it loose for a more casual look, or belt it up for a cute wraparound style. It’s also available in black.

High End – Suede Gilet, Mango, £69.99

If you want to spend a bit more cash, then we think this suede gilet from Mango is a good bet, and not too pricey for a high quality jacket. Suede adds a lovely bit of texture to an outfit and looks particularly good over loose fabrics, such as floaty blouses or a long-sleeved tee. Plus it has pockets! Always a bonus in our eyes.

Cognac Suede Gilet –  available from Mango, £69.99

That’s our top sleeveless jacket picks now that spring has finally sprung.
