Come look at my Winter coats and tell me what Summer coat to buy!!
Sorry I can't be much help I live in the far North of Scotland and would wear any of those jackets in the summer!!
However, I have the same ishoos with biker jackets as you but found a longer length one last year in Dotty P's which looks good. I also have a fitted indigo denim jacket that I wear with a large vintage brooch. Have you considered a cord jacket?
How about a trench style? I got a lovely one from Jigsaw last year that doesn't have buttons but ties around the waist - quite lightweight and probably only showerproof at best, but a nice layer for summer. They had it in navy and blush last year - will have a quick look to see if there is something similar now. Could look quite glam?
Thanks everyone for helping. I thought it was a dead thread!
Unfortunately I don't like any of the links. They're all nice just not for me. I don't like unfitted shapes so that rules out boyfriend coats/dusters. I don't like trenches. I bought a pink boyfriend coat last year from River Island and returned it as I looked like Don Johnson in Miami Vice.
The military is still too short and not really my style.
The H+M one is nice but again not me.
I think I want something more fired and a bit more glam. How awkward? .
