Hands up if you got caught in the rain this week?
Yep, us too. Here at the Peacocks offices, we’ve stubbornly continued to come into work either wearing a shirt without even a summer jacket, a skirt, or hugely-inappropriate flimsy footwear.
Well, it’s hard to keep up when temperatures drop from high twenties to 17 and rainy overnight! The most unfortunate among us have forgotten umbrellas – more than once.
Let’s face it, when we get to May onwards we get so excited about buying bright, pretty clothes that don’t hide our entire body, we don’t think about outerwear.
But in all seriousness, we still live in Great Britain and plenty of days we still see lots of less-than-lovely weather!
That’s why we’ve made an edit of the most stylish ladies’ summer jackets for SS17. Cast your eye over denim, bomber and aviator styles and save your worries for stressing out over wanting to buy them all!
A godsend for warm, breezy days in June and July, denim jackets are our go-to summer style. Embroidery, as we’re sure you know is very high on the SS17 fashion radar and we have two options with gorgeous floral detailing.
Choose this faded dark blue design for cowgirl chic or work baby blue à la the ‘80s. Jessica Simpson, Kelly Kapowski eat your hearts out!
We wanted to say that we put the glam in pac-a-macs but we couldn’t because it isn’t in the word – so we put it in there! Our glam-a-macs are updated to keep you looking gorgeous in the new season, whenever the heavens deem to open.
Go on-trend gingham for your low-key looks or show your love for spring/summer with vocal ditsy florals. ‘Sunny with a chance of showers’ – you won’t ruin our day or our hair ever again!
Dressing like one of the Pink Ladies is stylish again! Woo hoo! Well, in all fairness, we aren’t sure that it ever stopped being cool, but for 2017 leather bomber jackets are huge and pastels are all the rage.
If you’re after that sleek, sexy, minimalist vibe though, we’ve got you covered with this black option, featuring biker chick-style padded inserts.
Sure, blazers are always quite understated for the boardroom but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun when it’s chilly and your power dress needs that extra layer. Explore SS17 waterfalls, bold patterns and luxe capes at Peacocks.
KIMONOS AND DUSTER JACKETS
We all need a jacket for those days when we’re sure it’s going to be warm for hours, but there’s that niggling doubt at the back of your mind. A military-inspired duster jacket or a luxurious kimono will stop you from freezing and will keep you looking fly until you get indoors.
