You might recall that earlier in the year I previewed some of the new Spring Summer range from me&i. Well as they prepare to welcome the new Autumn Winter range in there are still a few pieces left to last you through the Summer and beyond. My absolute favourite of those pieces is this Regimental Jacket, and the lovely team at me&i sent me one to review.

khaki green military style jacket worn over white topI just love this on trend double breasted jacket in a gorgeous khaki colour with silver buttons. Its perfect for Spring and Autumn when the days are a little cooler, but also for the warm Summer nights ahead when the evenings get a little chillier than the balmy days. This jacket looks gorgeous teamed with jeans and a tshirt, making it a staple for Mums on the go, but its also smart enough to look great on a night out with the girls. As you can see from the picture is looks great fastened, but even when its left open it still looks very classy.

I love the colour, the shape and the design. I love the fact that it contains elastane which gives it a comfortable amount of stretch, whilst looking sleek and fitted when you’re wearing it. At £65 its not a cheap jacket but it is a long lasting one. I can see me wearing this well in to the Autumn and early next year. Its already had plenty wear this summer because its so versatile. It goes with so many things I own and so can be just pulled on as you head out the door.

I can’t wait to see what me&i have in store for us this Autumn Winter season – hopefully the weather won’t take us there too soon!
