Due to the recent change of weather I’ve realised I’m back in my jackets again – I guess it’s something us Brits are acceptable with during summer. But clearly we don’t want to be wearing the same clothes all the time and actually a lightweight jacket is much better during summer. Something both practical yet stylish can be a chore to find. Saying that, did you know Barbour has a brilliant summer collection? They’re not just about their winter waxed jackets and I was really happy to find a number of versatile summer items online. Barbour has a heritage of classic yet timeless style with a number of biker-inspired pieces – all of which I love.
For me this *Barbour Tourer Quilt is an ideal jacket for coastal living during summer. Its lightweight and small enough to fold away in your bag, yet it still keeps the chill away once on. I like the fact that you can style the collar up or folded it down and the jacket looks just as good open as closed. With a diamond-quilted outer, classic biker styling and a subtly tailored fit, the Barbour Tourer Quilt is a versatile women’s jacket.
Designed for changeable weather, the *Barbour Tourer Quilt can be thrown over almost any outfit. Inspired by the iconic motorcycling jackets made by Barbour in the 1930s, it’s styled with a buckle-close funnel neck, a waist-flattering fabric belt and multiple outer pockets, including the angled biker’s ‘map pocket’ to the chest. Brass hardware and shoulder epaulettes gives an added road-ready edge.
This *Barbour Tourer Quilt jacket has a timeless look, something which I’m clearly going to be wearing year after year. For me this classic yet chic summer jacket is a wardrobe staple for every woman.
