Try Warehouse. They had a grey jacket with a lovely matching dress and trousers last week.

That jacket is lovely.

Thanks again for good tips. I bought this one yesterday which has a kind of muted mauve tone to it in RL. now I just need a lighter one, as MissBeehiving suggested.

I find silk and linen jackets the best - they aren't as heavy or restrictive and as hot.

I like this shape for dresses.

I have this one in navy and have worn it loads in late spring, summer and early autumn.

Don't think I'd get away with white at our place.
Someone wore a cream jacket last week and got called the man from Del Monte all day hmm

IME, no. I've just had one made in desperation. I do think jackets look way better for work than cardigans though, and I am reliably informed that there is a real trend atm towards being smarter in the work place. Apparently it's because people are upping their game in the face of the recession.

I need to smarten up a bit and swap cardies for jackets. I don't want anything too formal or structured. But not too cheap looking.

I'd wear them with dresses mostly.

But I'd like some colour (green/plum/nice grey?), something a bit different and not too thick so I'm not having to hoik it off to let my armpits breathe every 10 mins.

Is there such a jacket?
