If Amelia Earhart can rock the bomber jacket, then so can you in the newest 2014 trend straight from the catwalk shows of Spring/Summer 2014.
The bomber jacket is a trend that has been around for years but the variations of style is something that can be tracked and changed from year to year. It is no longer worn for the comfort of pilots but seen as a winter wardrobe must have. It varies from the classic leather jacket, lined with sheep skin, to the thinner material of the now 2014 bomber. It can be seen cutting off just before the hip, but with a new stylized personality that is colourful, patterned and sure to fill any rainy spring day with sunshine and warmth.
With the likes of Marc Jacobs gracing the catwalk in a velvet burgundy bomber with accents of blush pink triangles, the bomber jacket for the new season is all about being daring and going for the boldest and most colourful shades you can find. For the most dullest of outfits, it can add a glitter of colour and make you stand out from the crowd. While the edginess is perfect for the daring of you out there, the sporty accents can work wonderfully with a pair of disco pants or a pair of shorts paired with trainers. A more floral bomber jacket would be the perfect essential to any of you girly girl’s dresses that just need that extra something to make it stand out and pop.
While the jacket is perfect to make any winter day seem brighter, the fabric itself is incredibly thin compared to that of a fleeced bomber so opt for this new trend in the warmer spring and summer months. Alternatively when it gets a little more chilly at night, team with a hoodie or cardigan to wear underneath as the bomber is comfy and big enough to wear without the fabric looking bulky.
This airy and versatile jacket is a perfect investment for any spring/summer wardrobe. Also when teamed with various fabrics, cuts and patterns it is the vital essential to any outfit to give it a unique edge that will keep you not only warm, but also stylish.
The blue floral print bomber jacket featured above can be purchased in store and online at £50.00. Alternatively, if you prefer something a little more subtle, try River Island’s dark red faux fur collar biker bomber jacket priced at £60.
