Barbour Jackets for Women

If you are considering purchasing a new jacket, you are undoubtedly going to be faced with a myriad of styles to choose from this coming season. Do you opt for a leather jacket, which are in fashion, or a bright neon number? Alternatively, you may prefer to choose something a little more substantial, in preparation for the chilly summer evenings undoubtedly heading our way. The problem with any of these choices, however, is that they may prove to have too much or too little protection from the variable climate that we live in.

I was recently faced with this dilemma and after some thought and consultation with friends; I decided to opt for a Barbour jacket. Initially sceptical, I put aside my previous assumptions and did a little online research. What I found was most pleasing indeed. Barbour have an astonishing wealth of jackets available for women, ranging from the wintry and waterproof coats necessary in the colder weather to more lightweight and stylish numbers for spring and summer.

So after much deliberation, I was able to narrow down my choices to five Barbour jackets. I mainly focused on finding a coat best suited to the spring and summer. I was, however, tempted by a heavier duty coat which would be perfect for any season. The beauty of Barbour is that even their lighter coats can be worn in the winter, as there is space underneath to wear jumpers and layer clothes, providing you buy the appropriate size.

                                                                           

Listed below are just some of the fabulous coats I came across on my adventures into the world of Barbour:

  • Summer Liddesdale Quilted Jacket

Coming in a sumptuous range of red, black, navy, pink, purple, lavender or pearl, this is a truly girly jacket which would work well with any look. Lightweight and short, a tailored cut makes the jacket stylish and sensual. Essential summer wear for any fashion respecting woman!

  • Flyweight Cavalry Jacket

A touch of equestrian style is employed here, without making the coat too out-and-out horsey. Again, a classic fit is employed, this time with a funnel neck, perfect for drizzly days when you are caught out in the rain.

  • Ferndown Jacket

I just loved the gorgeous buttons on the front of this jacket. When I tried it on I found the cut super flattering and comfortable to wear. It does only come in olive or black, but these colours go with most things and the jacket could be a statement all on its own.

  • Rainbow International Bright Jacket

Wow. There are no words to describe this beauty. With brass buttons all the way up the front and a belt which helps to create a sexy and sleek silhouette, wearing one of these is bound to please both you and anyone who sees you in it. Slightly longer than the other coats mentioned here, the Rainbow has a funnel neck and four handy pockets suitable for putting all those general bits and pieces in.

This chic and effortlessly stylish number is hand made. A classic style, with a heavier feel, this number will keep you dry, comfortable and warm, in any conditions. This coat would be ideal for anyone who spends lots of time outdoors.

 

I could continue to sing the praises of Barbour until the cows come home. Whether you wish to wear one simply to be on-trend, or you are looking for a long term investment in a decent coat, there is a Barbour jacket to suit every taste.

 

Now I just have to decide which one is right for me!
