Why We Love the Bomber Jacket

Why We Love the Bomber Jacket

It’s the one to own this year. Nailing the sports chic trend and all of your layering needs add a bomber to your wardrobe to earn extra style points with every outfit.

One thing we know, the bomber is a piece to buy now and wear forever. When it comes to what to wear with your bomber there don’t seem to be any rules. From pretty, feminine styles to classic sporty looks there’s something for every personality and every trend this season. Here’s why we love the bomber (and you should too)…

It adapts to every season

The bomber is so versatile and works in every colour to suit your own style. Cold weather? A padded bomber solves all of your problems. Hot summer sun? We’ve got silky styles and lightweight jackets to layer over a cami top. It really is the hardest working piece in your wardrobe.

It goes with everything in your wardrobe

Whilst the bomber itself is a sporty style, this season catwalks and streetstyle are proving that the bomber can be a pretty piece too. All over lace or floral details ensure that the bomber isn’t just for monochrome joggers but works perfectly over dresses too.

It’s had a grown-up makeover

Take the traditional bomber jacket and add a high-fashion twist with luxury fabrics and details. Team with this season’s must-have pieces from our Exclusives collection and you’ll be sure to turn heads everywhere you go. From suedette to detail padding, the styling possibilities are endless.

It’s a right-now update to every casual outfit

The beauty of a bomber jacket is that it’s so easy to wear. Throw on with your favourite pair of jeans and joggers and you’ve nailed one of this season’s hottest trends. Add a smarter pair of tailored trousers for that off-the-catwalk feel whilst off-duty.

It’s taken the world by storm

From the SS16 catwalks to the A-listers, it seems everyone can’t get enough of the bomber this summer. Steal Rosie’s airport style and pair back with a simple white top and skinny jeans, or wear it like Alicia Keys does on the red carpet and dress your bomber jacket up for a night out.
