THE SUMMER COVER-UP
It might be hot outside, but showers are, unfortunately, never far away. Keep dry in style with this minimal water-resistant jacket, says M&S.com menswear editor William Oliver
Even at the height of summer, we all know that it’s worth planning for a bit of rain. Rather than going for something bulky, the warm-weather months call for a lighter option to keep you cool and dry. Minimally designed, this anorak will add a slick touch to a smarter outfit – it looks great layered over cotton trousers and a fitted shirt or light knit – and works brilliantly as part of a casual downtime look. Lined with breathable mesh, the jacket packs down easily into a day bag, so, wherever you’re headed, you shouldn’t get caught out by a sudden downpour. Made from water-resistant material with a taped seam on the zips to seal out moisture, it comes in red or navy and ticks all the boxes for a stylish summer cover-up.
