Great spring and summer cotton or linen jacket in blue

Wanted to share with you a more summery look as the weather has taken a turn for the better.

Seen this great jacket surfing the web and thought would share with you a really stylish way to stay relaxed and cool but with a twist. Cottons and linens have been worn for generations as a versatile and fabric that breaths well. But with a couple of touches here and there you can add your own individual twist.

The cream mother of pearl buttons really work for me on this. Horn buttons will work fine but be very boring. But go to a local haberdasher and find some great buttons that hint at your personality and put those on instead.

The edges are stitched which break up simple style of the jacket.

The patch pockets here make it more casual, but you can do piped for a more trendy look, or add flaps to make more formal.

A white silk pocket square (always contrast if possible to the fabric in the garment as it creates opposing textures which stand out more) and a flower lapel pin/button adds that extra quip of character.

Enjoy The season in style.
