The humble bomber has been hanging around for the last few seasons, I managed to bag myself a cute lightweight khaki one in the Zara summer sale not last year but the one before, and now it’s been elevated from a grungy casual to a high fashion must-have.
I remember back at school, people (well the boys mainly) having a black or khaki version with orange lining, and you can still find these cult styles if you’re a bit of a purist, but why not open your eyes to the array of colours, prints, patterns and textures out there and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
It’s also no longer just a casual jacket to be teamed with jeans and trainers – oh no, the bomber will fast become your most versatile piece of outerwear, teaming easily with a beautiful dress or cute little skirt, and take a styling tips from the fash pack and celebs alike, who like to drape theirs (so nonchalantly) over their shoulders.
