MENSWEAR STYLE GUIDE: THE BOMBER JACKET.

The bomber is well-known to have a timeless appeal that speaks years of styles and trends; born out of the use in the military,  it was key to Autumn/Winter trends. Designers from Gucci, Ralph Lauren and Levi’s, have made sure the jacket has followed us into Spring/Summer by creating lighter-weight versions of the piece.

Due to its versatile nature, the jacket can be dressed up with a shirt and tie and can also be casually worn with a pair of jeans and tee.

LUXE BOMBER.
The ‘Luxe’ bomber jacket is known as the sophisticated style of the jacket, which is perfect for those days where you go from a casual day look to night. High-street stores offer textured versions which feature leather sleeves.

To style: keep your overall look simple as this allows the jacket to standout and become the focal feature of your outfit.
Something as simple as a white tee and bomber combo, works wonders.

PRINTED BOMBER.
Prints have been big for the past two years in the menswear world, so it’s no real surprise that printed bomber jackets have created a bold impact this Spring/Summer season.


This style of bomber has a sports-luxe feel it’s best worn with a simple tee or sweatshirt, black jeans and trainers. If you’re worried about the look being too ‘everyday’ – don’t, the print on the jacket insures your look is anything but ordinary.

SUMMER BOMBER.
Commonly known as the lightweight bomber jacket, this piece is much lighter than everyday bomber jackets, for those summer evenings where it begins to cool and you’re out.

To add a little more appeal to this style, wear a printed polo tee underneath the summer bomber. For warmer days try this look with tailored shorts and boat shoes.

The bomber can be worn all year round due to it’s versatile nature so don’t just think you’re purchasing a one-season piece, it’s set to be big this summer.
