Vogue is declaring the bomber jacket the new coat du jour this year! A classic fashion staple and darling of Hip Hop community in the naughties, the bomber jacket must be the coolest way to stay warm! All major designers from Gucci to Acne offer a variety of styles of the off-duty staple this year.
This uncomplicated blouson, as the bomber jacket is also know as, is easy to style and pair: Imagine unexpected combos like a sequined evening dress with the sporty jacket or do it like Romantique and Rebel, making it your sartorial choice for a day of sight seeing in London!
My favourite way of styling the bomber jacket is just like Mossy does it in the photo: Offset the casual bomber with a carefully ironed, crisp shirt, skinny jeans, ankle boots and structured bag and you’re good to go!
For a day of sightseeing in London’s East (check back for the full report soon), I’m wearing skinny jeans by J Crew, Breton jumper by St James, ankle boots by Jil Sander and a blue satin bomber jacket.
Yes I freely admit wearing bomber flight jackets is not really my forte. But now and then it’s good to mix things up, one can’t always wear Swiss lace and brocade dresses. My bomber jacket is made of wintery wool – a toned down version of the classic shiny nylon or silk. Paired with denim and ankle boots, this is an easy and relaxed look for every day.
I’m wearing a wool blouson by Closed, denim by Hugo Boss Orange, ankle boots by AGL Attilio Giusti Leombruni.
