TREND ALERT | The Bomber Jacket

Once an 80's staple, bomber jackets are everywhere at the moment and they don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. I love them because they give a really effortless but glam look to an outfit. They give off quite a relaxed 'I didn't even have to try' vibe.
I have been lusting over so many but have yet to bite the bullet and pick one. Researching for this post made it hard to resist so without further ado here is my favourite bomber jackets. 

Velvet Bomber Jacket Pink
Missguided €35.00

This baby pink beauty is from none other than Missguided. Both the colour and the velour gives me throwback Pink Ladies vibes. I think €35.00 is an absolute steal for this bomber as the quality from Missguided is always really really good. They are one of my go to sites for affordable but fabulous clothes.

Lacey Floral Jersey Bomber €20.00

I have to thank my friend Kate Kelly from Pure Irish Sugar Blog for bringing this one to my attention. I spotted it on her Snapchat 'katekelly1' and looked it up straight away. I think the pop of pink against the mint is absolutely stunning. It would be ideal for injecting a bit of life into an otherwise casual outfit. It almost has an oriental feel to it and at only €20.00 it is an absolute bargain.

White Lace Sleeve Bomber Jacket 
River Island €60.00

There is something really elegant and sophisticated about this limited edition lace sleeve bomber from River Island. I can imagine it being worn over a confirmation or communion outfit...for the mammies of course. It would even dress up a vest top and jeans for a more casual but wearable look.

Flowing Zipped Bomber Jacket
ZARA €39.95

This bomber jacket from Zara is simple but gorgeous!! It is the perfect everyday, wear it over whatever jacket. You know, Zara is one shop and website I don't look at very often but I need to start considering it more because it always has really nice, on trend but affordable pieces. This jacket is also available in white.

Embroidered Satin Bomber Jacket
Bershka €45.99

I think I may have saved the best for last. The detail on this satin bomber from Bershka is insane!! I am in love with the colourful floral design on the front and back. It is the kind of jacket that will see you right through Spring Summer and even early Autumn Winter.

My Top Tips For Achieving The Look
  • Wear a bright and colourful bomber jacket with an otherwise all black outfit to inject some colour and fun.
  • For a cute, feminine and Summer feel wear your bomber over day dress with converse or gladiator sandals.
  • To give a more masculine feel to your #OOTD opt for a more sporty bomber jacket, maybe one with patches and logos sewn on.
  • Wear your bomber over a glitzy dress on a night out to give an edgy look.
  • Take balance into consideration. If for example you are wearing a silk bomber jacket which is traditionally lightweight then team it with something like denim.
