There's no denying it, autumn has most definitely swept in during the last few weeks, and with winter on the horizon, it's time to think outerwear. However, if you're not quite ready to sink into a full-on winter coat, we have the perfect sartorial solution. Meet our Samba jacket.

A round neck, collarless jacket in a grey and fawn country-esque checked weave, we love the Samba. Wool-rich and stylish, this fabulous little jacket sits over jeans (skinny or flared) or little black dresses (very Audrey Hepburn) with ease.

Samba has a straight cut with three-quarter sleeves hovering  just above the wrists. Forties-inspired with a heritage feel, it's a great alternative to a heavier-weight jacket.

It fastens with stylish gold hook tabs, offering a luxe edge to a casual design and a neat, smooth front.

And, those soft, rounded shoulders echo the season's love for vintage shapes and offer a flattering, easy look.

The ideal jacket for warmer days in lieu of a coat, or for wearing indoors as an kind-of cardigan, Samba's purposes know no end. Slip it on and feel the warmth.
