10 Easy Going Jackets for The Return of Simplicity

 
10 Easy Going Jackets for The Return of Simplicity


Those fond of layering up sadly had no cause to unpack their flashiest jackets this year. Amidst the three months of wearing just your boxers in the comfort of your home, these late night dinner pairings have since had a struggle in reputation because of the intense glowing heat of our island nation.

It’s true. Wearing a jacket — let alone one made of luxurious fine wool — is a death sentence in tropical heat. But, those days are soon to be gone. 

In our July 2020 issue, we’ve zoomed in on topics of renewal and the return of simplicity. It is a common philosophy that will continue to inspire the upcoming seasons.

Forget loud prints or electric colours, less is more is the way it should be. That said, getting new pieces from your wardrobe should reflect that as well, after all, the pre-seasons embody characteristics that attend to the desire of layering while still being reasonable to our climate. 

To get started, we select the best 10 easy going jackets from Pre-Fall ’20 you can buy in stores right now. But remember, if the weather doesn’t call for it, leave the jackets for another day.
