Hi, I'm new to mumsnet so just finding my way around. Great to find this section as I need a bit of an overhaul!

I'm looking for a lightweight jacket for spring/early summer but can't really see anything I like. I don't want black and I'm not sure if I can get away with biker style though I quite like the look (I'm 46), or maybe a shortish mac would be the way to go?

I have a pretty tight budget - max £50, any suggestions?

It's the "Bright green short tipped mac coat" on Debenhams website if you can't get the link to work.

Cheap as chips Asda, but looks good irl

Asda have a number of other nice short macs. There is a smart red one.

OP what about a jersey blazer in a neutral like navy or grey? You could then change the look with different scarves. They are very popular with S and B regulars who are looking for a Spring/ Summer cover up. There have been a number of threads on the topic:
