Originally designed for fighter pilots in WW1 – The bomber jacket obsession went into overdrive in 2016 and shows no signs of being grounded in 2017.
The 'bomber-with-everything' look popularized and glamourized by models and celebrities alike – Kylie, Karlie and Gigi to name a few – takes full flight into spring /summer 2017.
From Fashion Week catwalks in Beijing, Paris and NYC to Milan street style, the versatile bomber was well represented in the 2017 spring/summer collections.
This season, the bomber has truly been elevated – street style meets couture - Embellished with faux fur (see our "Sasha jacket" from Anouk Studios), satin, appliqué, sequins or bold silks - designers let their imaginations run wild.
The only rule – proportion: Less shown with skinny pants and jeans and more pairings with full or flared skirts, chiffon dresses and wide-leg trousers.
Mix-it-up with tulle or shimmering silk for an ultra-feminine look or go ‘bad-girl-done-good’ with 80’s inspired minis and studded ankle boots.
If you’re still shy about committing to the trend – opt for a neutral colour for maximum style longevity - easily dressed up or down depending on your mood.
Time for 'take-off’!
