There are two, erm, schools of thought on the best jackets of the season – both of which easily make a style statement on the school run.
Moddish biker jackets – usually only in leather – have been made in cottons, knits and nylons this Spring. And even those that are in leather are a little different – with quilting a massive trend.

Liberty have joined forces with that quintessential name of country clobber, Barbour, to produce waxed jackets lined in the famous store’s paisley prints.
While high street stores including Miss Selfridge and Zara have embraced their inner-Sloane with quilted jackets that would almost certainly bag you a Prince. Almost.
Here are some top picks for Spring jackets. Now you just need to decide if you’re a Mod or a Middleton.
