How To: Wear The Bomber Jacket

Anna Sui

The bomber jacket has become the key piece for S/S16 but with its sporty look and bulky finish it often can be difficult to style right. Take a look at my top 5 styling tips to introduce the bomber jacket into key trends of the season. 

90s Minimalism
The 90s are set to the be key decade this season and the bomber is the perfect piece to create the urban minimalistic look. Pair with a simple black slip dress and trainers for the minimalistic 90s vibe or add some mom jeans and plain tee to create a slightly more urban feel to the look.

Romantic Florals
Romantic florals and feminine styles are key every S/S and despite its military roots, the bomber jacket can complete the perfect romantic look. The print is the base of this look and to create the delicate, romantic style it cannot be too bright or too busy. Pair with a feminine cut dress and heels for the completed look. 

Grunge Edge
Grunge styling has been key on the catwalks for the previous few seasons and the oversized bomber is the perfect finishing touch. Pair with a delicate floral dress and utility boots for a feminine twist on the style or team with the traditional check skirt and ripped jeans for all over grunge.

Sport Luxe
The bomber jacket is more commonly associated with the sport luxe look and with the rise of the 90s, the tomboy style is key. Pair with a crop top, leggings and white trainers for the ultimate sport-luxe look with that nod to the key 90s trend.

Unusual Layering
Layering was all over the catwalks for S/S16, with the focus being on unusual pairings. The bomber jacket is perfect for the trend as it is often light in nature and adds and instant sporty pop which can be contrasted easily. Pair with a mid-length dress, cropped jumper and sandals for the clash of styles and lengths.
