The appeal of the androgynous garment has remained on the wardrobe must haves list for 2016, and the bomber jacket embodies this trend completely. Yet while the traditional colour palate of space grey, charcoal and olive have always been the go-to shades when purchasing a bomber, now more than ever is the time to capitalise on the pale hues and colour blocked embellishments added to the age old jacket.
As seen at Gucci’s Spring Summer collection earlier this year, a black bomber is classic but an embroidered bomber may add a little spark to your outfit.
The collar sits flat, circling around the neck with a secure fit. Typically accompanied by a fitted waist, cuffed sleeves and a zip front, the item has been popularised in 2016 by the likes of Karlie Kloss, Olivia Palermo, Ellie Goulding and Georgia May Jagger while walking the streets and runways of fashion weeks globally. Throw it over a shift dress or with a pair of ankle boots and you’re set for work or play!
Keep warm and stylish this winter by adding a bomber jacket to your shopping cart.
