I don’t remember a time where a piece of outerwear has so influenced style – okay maybe the parka or the leather jacket – but this year the bomber jacket is available everywhere. Light or padded, plain or embroidered, of every color, you will see a plethora of choice this season. They are surprisingly easy to wear too.
Here I am in my H&M bomber yesterday – at just $59.99 it is great value. Don’t be scared of the red – it works great with blue or black denim. Oh size down too – it fits big. This is a medium.
There are so many others that I love that my edit has ended up rather long! Let’s start with this stunning number from Zara. It is reversible – embroidered or plain and is a Limited Edition. At $189 it isn’t cheap but it is stunning.
My next place to visit is always ASOS. Sometimes they have too much choice available!
I absolutely love this color – it’s described as silver grey, but here it definitely has some khaki in it too! It looks super and I love the pocket details on the sleeves. Just $73 from ASOS.
I really like the metallic trim on this one and the nude and yellow is fabulously summery and fun.
A bit of embroidery this time. I have a thing about peacocks and adore this jacket.
This is kind of special. There won’t be many other polka dot bombers around and French Connection have played an ace here.
I’ve ordered this one – it’s reduced to $39 and when can I ever resist a bit of animal print?
There are lots of nudes and pinks available this season – a really flattering color for showing off that holiday tan. This is New Look and just $49.
Another pink jacket and just $44.
On to Mango – and I know there will be more coming from them as the season progresses.
This is in the sale reduced from $149.99 to just $39.99! It will be perfect for taking you into Fall.
Embroidery and pink – this is beautiful and just $119.99 for a beautifully soft jacket. It looks so comfortable.
These next two a lovely and simple – yet will add a little pizzazz to a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. What more do you need at just $59.99. A great alternative if the H&M red jacket is too much for you.
An evening bomber jacket? Yes with this sequin jacket you will never feel underdressed regardless if you’re wearing it with jeans or over a cocktail dress – I love it.
Finally good old TopShop – they are a great resource as they really pay attention to the needs of a taller or petite customer too, and most of these jackets are available in Tall, Petite and Regular.
This may be my favorite of them all. It’s reversible with green on one side and black on the other. The green is stunning, and I love the dragon embroidery. It’s also quilted which I love too.
Along with anything animal, camo is a favorite print of mine. This is fab-u-lous.
Another pink jacket and the quilting makes this one look so luxurious.
A little lighter and dressier – this lace jacket is a little different, and I love the navy front panels.
More pink but combined with a subtle embroidery. Again a great alternative to the H&M jacket if red is just too much.
Ending with another favorite. It’s in my basket. Not only is it beautiful but I would wear this all Fall and Winter….
So have you ventured into the bomber jacket territory yet? There’s so much choice for fans and those who just want to dip their toes in.
Today the kids are back at school! I have a 5th grader and 3rd grader! For the first time I really wasn’t ready to wave them off – it’s been such a fabulous summer…Sorry for the photo quality today – I’ve dropped my camera and it may be nackered – but the awful humidity also meant I shot this inside!
