It’s been a good, long run, but it’s time for the blazer to step down from it’s pedestal and be replaced with a new heir. Enter the Bomber Jacket (Non-fashion folk, that’s a jacket with an elasticated waist and sleeves, with a zipper down the front. You’re welcome.)

 

And we’re not just talking any old bomber jackets, like the usual sports-inspired ones we’ve seen around since the eighties. No. These babies are embellished, embroidered and emblazoned with larger-than-life prints. The ‘Statement Bomber’, if you will, is one of Spring’s key trends and is doing the rounds of the high street after having filtered down off the runways of Erdem, Marni, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Jonathan Saunders, Stella McCartney, Pringle, Balmain and Trussardi to name a few.

 

Stay true to it’s boyish reputation by pairing it with skinny jeans and trainers or combat boots. Or if a more feminine silhouette is more your thing, throw one over your favourite dress to for a boy-meets-girl feel. These babies also make for a fun pairing with shorts if you’re in the mood to get your indie on.   Oh, and if you’re thinking accessories, I’d steer clear of statement necklaces that would take the focus of the jacket or fussy bracelets that could get in the way of it’s elasticated cuffs. A long pendant, earrings or rings work best with this winner and a utilitarian, ‘working gal’ carry-all or a mid-sized satchel compliments the fun meets functional vibe of the jacket perfectly.
