The search for your most stand-out cover-up starts here. Snap up our round up of the best bomber jackets in stores now...
It’s that time of year when your search for a new, more spring-appropriate cover-up begins. While trenches are a timeless option, for something more casual and edgy, the iconic bomber jacket is the way to go.
Traditionally reserved for fighter pilots in WW1, the cropped, lightweight and tactile jacket is now a regular fixture on the catwalks and a firm favourite among fashion editors and A-listers alike.
On the catwalks, it was all about embroidery, look-at-me fabrics and bold prints. At Gucci, there were space-age metallics and wild bloom embroidery,while palm prints were favoured by Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent and florals by Jonathan Saunders.
One message was clear – the bomber jacket is a do-it-all-style. Day or night, there’s a style and price tag for you.
While there will always be the highly covetable and super versatile plain navy, black and khaki styles, this season’s trophy jacket trend has never been more easy than with a bomber jacket.
When it comes to what to wear with your bomber, there really aren’t any rules to follow. They’ll look especially great with denim at the weekend and perfectly balance out this season?s key wide-leg trouser trend.
Just don’t make the mistake of thinking these cool cover-ups are only for the weekend. Though we do love them teamed with skinny ripped jeans and a pair of all-white Adidas Stan Smith for a classic take on the normcore trend, they work for many other occasions too.
Opt for a luxe silk style and team with midi skirts,culottes, and flirty dresses for an on-point date night get-up. Now that it’s finally time to start baring some skin, opt for a stand-out after-hours look with a pair of sky high heels and a splash of lippy.
