THE WHITE JACQUARD COAT
Mastering two new-season trends in one, this wear-anywhere coat will see you straight into summer and beyond, says M&S.com womenswear editor, Charlene Barton.
The vision from the summer catwalks was clear: white is the new black. From conceptual tailoring to demure lace, designers called out to modernists and romantics alike, showcasing a fresh sense of clarity for the season ahead. Coats were championed too as a practical solution to weather-induced style dilemmas, making this classic design – seen here on singer-songwriter and M&S Leading Lady, Annie Lennox – a true hero piece. Featuring a precision-cut silhouette with intricate jacquard detailing, it’s perfect for any occasion. You can wear it to the office with pencil skirts or black trousers, as a dress coat to your next event or over casual denim and a cashmere knit for chic off-duty days.
