Be the bomb-diggity in summer’s luxe sporty style…
Most of us harbour dreams of owning a slinky pink bomber jacket – complete with embroidered monogramming – since eyeballing Rizzo shoulder-robing hers during the epic #squadstrut in Grease.
Aside from buying a cheap NAF NAF knock-off from the market in the ’90s, most of us haven’t had the chance to legit make these #jacketgoals a reality. Not until summer 2016, that is.
Oh yes, the bomber jacket has exploded back onto the style scene in a major way. Spotted last year on the Spring Summer 2016 catwalks of Gucci through to Stella McCartney, and landing on the high-street this spring, Instagram feeds around the world are full of our favourite fashion follows sporting a sleek satin style.
The main requirements to make for an Insta-worthy look? Pretty pastel shade: TICK. Hi-shine fabric (silk is the dream but satin keepin’ it real): TICK. Contrasting sleeves: TICK. Embroidered erry’thang: TICK TICK TICK. Personalised monogramming being the sartorial cherry on top of this sweet offering.
And the best bit? If you’ve yet to invest, you haven’t missed the bomber boat, oh no. From what we’ve seen from the Autumn Winter 2016 press days so far, this casual-cool cover-up is set to stick around for next season. All the yeses!
So what are you waiting for? Snap up one of these slinky statement jackets pronto so you too can look DA BOMB(er). Shop our bomber jacket shopping edit below…
