THE BOMBER JACKET, THREE WAYS

Fashion

The legend lives on…

1.

THE 90S THROWBACK

Take your style tips from the early adopters of the cult favourite and go for a slouchy or oversized satin shell. For a contemporary take, opt for a reversible version in blush pink or emerald green.

How to wear it: Choose one with zipped pockets and ribbed jersey trims – so it stays put when you roll up the sleeves – and grosgrain tags at the sleeves. Style it with denim trackpants and finish the look with high-top trainers or toughen it up with Dr. Martens. For the evening, you can lift it with an electric-yellow pleated skirt and pumps.

2.

THE VARSITY STYLE

Part sports luxe, part off-duty baseball captain, the varsity-style bomber is a substitute for a black biker jacket on cooler days and the ultimate layering piece. We’ll leave it at that.

How to wear it: Whether all-black or two-tone, the varsity bomber looks best over a long sweatshirt, hoodie or T-shirt, with second-skin leather leggings or jeans to balance the proportions. Flat or heeled lace-up boots are the on-trend way to finish the look.

3.

THE HEAD-TURNER

Let the statement-making jacket be your weekend saviour. Let it be loud, lilac, crimson or – the way we’re partial to wearing it – adorned with a slogan print. The statement bomber is designed to lift the simplest of looks: think an LBD or a T-shirt and jeans.

How to wear it: However your mood dictates. Wear it with shades of grey and black or clashing checks – a key trend for spring and summer. Go forth and conquer!
