I love doing collaborations with my friends especially when we all have such different styles. 5 of my blogging bffs and I recently worked together to showcase this fabulous bomber jacket from Next. It comes in red and grey and I picked the red – mainly because I have the grey Next biker jacket from last year. I didn’t really know what to expect so I was thrilled when I opened the package to find a lovely soft, lightweight, vivid red jacket. It’s as light as a sweatshirt so the perfect weight for a throw on here in Spring. Yes it was gifted – thank you Next – but that has not skewed my opinion – I really love it and would have paid money for it. Look how great all the other girls look too! Lizzy, Fiona, Frances, Avril, me and Michelle!
Many people steer clear of red thinking it is too bright or won’t go with much in their closet. I had fun prancing around the other day with different combinations to try and demonstrate how versatile red can be. My outfits are fairly neutral but red is also a great statement color to clash/colorblock with oranges, pinks and blues.

Ooh, so many more ways to style it Joanna. I love it with the leopard trousers. I’ve got some that are very similar, so I’ll definitely be stealing your style. I love it with the shorts too. Warm weather seems a long way off in the UK xxx
Absolutely fantastic in red! It’s more versatile than I gave it credit for! You’ve worked some styling magic showing all the different ways it can be worn!
The red really suits you and I’m madly impressed by how many different outfit combinations you managed to come up with! Clearly a very versatile little jacket!
Great to see the different looks! Love the red, I just ordered red myself!
Wow Joanna….the jackets looks awesome in every photo but I love it with the leopard print trews and heels…..you are giving me many more ideas of how I can style it! The red is gorgeous on you!! xx
Love, love your looks, the jacket is so versatile, looks fab the way you have dressed up and dressed down. Big fan of it with the shorts and jumpsuit, gorgeous! x
I love it with the leopard, you saucy minx, love it!! Now you would look great with either colour way but I am so glad you went with the red. H xx
LOVE the red bomber jacket on you Joanna, the colour is just stunning on you & you’ve styled it to perfection. It’s so interesting to see how you’ve all styled it.

Love it with the Splendid jumpsuit and the leopard trews too. You’ve really made the red work for you and it really is such a lovely eyecatching red. After going through all the different posts, I’m definitely divided between which I prefer the grey or the red. Sometimes, it’s good to break out of your comfort zone!
And look at the weather where you are – you can even model shorts!
I love red Joanna, for it’s nautical nod and also for how well it works with leopard and snakeprint and you have proved that here. It also works so well on a brunette, my mum used to always dress me in red dresses as a child, what do you mean I’m not really a natural blonde? Looking good girl xx
The red version looks amazing on you Joanna! Its such a great jacket & so much fun to work to with friends on posts like this! xx
Have to say I love it with the leopard. Great options to show its versatility.
Great collaboration with the ladies. I love the bomber so much that I ordered it in grey. Great styling!
I actually ADORE it with the leopard print trousers! They are fantastic! Gorgeous with the all black too. You look fab! x
LOVE the red on you – you should wear more of it, it looks fab on you. And that fabric of the jacket looks great. Perfect for the Spring.
I loved this post and seeing how you have all styled it. The red colour looks amazing on you!
That is such a great colour Joanne and I think my favourite look has to be the leopard print trousers x
You look fabulous…I struggled to pick which photo I liked best..definitely love the denim shorts as I seriously envy those gorgeous legs….but I think with the jumpsuit, it looks shamazing!! Nice to see how a bomber can be dressed up a bit too. Great to link up with you on this post my lovely, Avril x
Looks fabulous – I’ve really enjoyed how you’ve all styled this – especially with the denim shorts. I think Next are regaining some of their old mojo lately and I’m so excited that I’ve got a leather jacket from them arriving tomorrow. Can you get Next in the US or do you have to wait until you are back visiting?
I have been so impressed with Next each time I go back to the UK. I LOVE my grey biker jacket from last year and my jersey harems. This jacket is slightly lighter and is perfect for throwing over a t-shirt. And yes Next ship EVERYWHERE! At the bottom of the UK site you can see all the different country sites so there is a US site just for us:)
I live in the US and ordered the grey bomber jacket the day the ladies posted their gorgeous outfits. I’m looking forward to getting it. This is my first Next purchase.
Great to hear that – their quality is brilliant – and shipping is free to the US! I have some camouflage harems in my basket waiting to order when I get home – I’m trying to be good on vacation and not hit a ‘place order’ button:)
Wow – free shipping to the US? I have to pay £3.99 and I live literally 20 minutes drive from their head office!!!!
Really!! That’s crazy – this is the US site advertising free shipping http://us.nextdirect.com/en/
