The One 2017 Trend you cannot ignore!
Whether oversized, velvet, leather or traditional, the bomber jacket has taken over the Fashion Week runway. Long or short, quilted or fuzzy, bombers are back for another season in a big way.
For a few seasons now, we’ve seen the bomber jacket maintain its status as one of the most versatile and covertable trends, unshaken by the ever-changing nature of the fashion industry. From bloggers and editors to models, everyone has hopped on board at one point or another. From style veterans like Jessica Alba to newer "it" girls like Kendall and Gigi, everyone is (still) rocking the jacket style we’ve all come to love.
How to wear your Bomber Jacket?
Step into Autumn
The best thing about bomber jackets, is that they are the perfect layering piece. They keep you warm when it’s chilly outside, but they’re definitely not suffocating. For a no-fuss Autumn look, style your bomber jacket with skinny jeans. Add a simple but luxurious loose tee, and you’ve got that “off-duty model” look nailed. When you do need to wrap up a bit, layer your jacket over knitwear. A long-line sweater or a lightweight hoodie, with sneakers would look effortlessly chic and keep out any Autumn chills.
Keep It Casual
Simultaneously sporty and sexy, bomber jackets are a great way to dress down and give a too-girly outfit a bit of an edge. Throw your bomber jacket over a print dress or playsuit and team with a pair of cowboy boots or sneakers. For an outfit with some serious attitude, combine your jacket with a leather skirt or shorts.
Dressing Up Your Bomber Jacket
Traditionally bomber jackets may have been limited to casual wear, but this season streetwear and high fashion have well and truly collided. Wear an oversized bomber jacket with a pencil skirt. Choosing a jacket of a different material will instantly add a touch of class to any outfit. Throw on a black silk bomber over your favourite party dress and pair with some black heeled pumps, and you’ve got the perfect look for a night out.
With such a versatile item of clothing, there really are no fashion rules. Be brave and experiment – confidence and attitude are really all you need to rock this look.
