The ladies’ safari jacket: the perfect blend of lightweight utility and style
Are you looking for a lightweight, easy-wearing jacket to throw on when the weather takes a colder turn? Maybe you miss the practical pockets of last winter’s parkas
and heavy coats? Then look no further, we’ve got the solution! Read all about our collection of excellent safari jackets, and choose between classic desert-chic tones, feminine pastels and feel-good primary colours.
A cotton or linen classic with a rich pedigree
If you’re new to the safari jacket, let us tell you all about it. First developed by the British Army for use in warmer climates in the 19th century, it was soon adopted for safaris in Africa before coming to the attention of the fashion-conscious on both sides of the Atlantic. The lines of the traditionally masculine model were then softened as the style spread through women’s wardrobes. Safari jackets are easily identifiable by their four bellows-type pockets, lightweight cotton, linen, viscose or poplin fabric, and the vaguely military air that they still carry, two centuries later. The button-up safari jacket is traditional, but full-zip safari jackets have caught on for their convenience and added protection from the wind. On women, this style works beautifully, suiting every figure thanks to its gently elongated, flattering fit. Some of our models also feature a visible drawstring around the waist, allowing you to pull the safari jacket in and highlight your natural figure. And if you’re wondering how to wear safari-chic and pair it with the rest of your warm-weather wardrobe, we’ve got you covered!
Choose classic desert tones or a more modern flair
Put your mind at ease: these safari jackets are a delight to wear, and are as versatile as they are lightweight, stylish and practical. Why not lean in to the desert-chic look and try the classic shades of ochre and beige? These authentic tones have the advantage of pairing extremely easily, so keep one ready to throw on over a pair of your favourite jeans and a white blouse
for effortless style. Add a few accessories
for extra glamour. If you’d rather tone down the utility focus, try a model in pastel shades – pinks and creamy tones work beautifully with soft, pale colours and floral prints. Lastly, our collection also includes button-up and full-zip women’s safari jackets in bright, primary colours, which are an excellent way to inject some positive energy into your outfits this season.
