Bomber jackets made a huge effect on SS16f fashion weeks. The bomber is an iconic style that has existed since the turn of the century in uniforms and fashion. In the ’50s, youth culture adopted military and labor pieces like the MA-1 bomber, subverting their symbolism by bringing them into the streets and clubs. We see that rebellious spirit again from young people and designers, which is why the bomber jacket has again gained popularity. Knowing that they are here to stay, we could not think of a better way to ease this trend into your daily wardrobe. Velvet, satin, oversized or suede they‘ve been cropping up among the celebrity and street-style styles all over the cyber net.
Here are a few suggestions from us on how to style a bomber jacket this spring :
High-waisted denim, midriff-baring tops and your favorite sneakers.
Bring velvet designs into your day or night wardrobe with a velvet bomber jacket. Try a more casual touch paired with skinny jeans.
For those of you that love back and pink combination, we’ve spotted it also on bomber jackets on the street. The great thing about this version of bomber is that it’s more versatile, allowing you to treat it like an outerwear staple or a layering piece all year-round, depending on the weather.
Give a casual dress some street cred with a satin bomber. Pair it with ankle boots and there you have it : totally casually and rock.
Push the jacket’s sleeves all the way up and accessorize it with some light jewellery to earn you cool-girl points.
