I remember the exact moment I fell in love with bomber jackets. I was reading a magazine in the car and saw Cara Delevingne wearing an awesome jacket from Whistles. I therefore thought that if I possessed that jacket, I would look like her. Alas, that didn’t happen. I mean the part about looking like her.. as I managed to snatch the jacket after running around London trying desperately to find it in EVERY SINGLE Whistles store! And boy was it worth it! I wore it practically everyday for a year and looked so cool (at least I like to think I did!).
Anyways, as they are coming back into fashion (where they ever NOT though?), I thought I could round up my favorite pieces in order to convince everyone of their worth.
I am the biggest velvet fanatic so no wonder this one from J.W. Anderson (here) is my favorite, although, with all the amazing ones out there, it was pretty bloody tricky to pick one!
Another winner (mainly because of the velvet) is this Tommy Hilfiger one (here). It definitely deserves extra points for coolness..
This See By Chloé one (here) is just too pretty for words. I love the cream color of the vest paired with the off-white shade of the collar. I think it would look particularly amazing with light blue jeans…
On a scale of 1 to 10, this jacket from Alice + Olivia (here) is a 20! The details and the rich hues make this vest a real stunner!
As a fan of Sandro, I could not write this post without including one of their jackets. This one (here), like the brand, is effortlessly chic.
I came across this amazing piece (here) whilst online shopping (what else is a girl to do on a rainy sunday afternoon?)
I’ve been a fan of Mango for as long as I can remember and this piece (here) reminds me why. I love the simplicity of this jacket and the fact that it can be paired with anything.
Finally, one can’t write something on bomber jacket and not include leather. This one from Ted Baker (here) is the perfect piece to end this post on a cool note.
