Bag a Bomber
September is here and schools are finally back - hooray! I do love my children, but 8 weeks is surely enough. Sad to say summer is over and Autumn is just around the corner. There may still be a bit of sun to come, but we will all require a little jacket to cover our shoulders for when the chill sets in. The bomber jacket! My daughter tried to dissuade me from writing about bomber jackets, buy my wisdom over-ruled as I believe this is the jacket of the season. It is the new blazer, the new cardigan, and it goes with everything - over the new season's maxi dress, with a pair of jeans or even over a cocktail dress. Most of the jackets are silk or satin and are beautifully adorned with sequins or oriental flowers and birds. They are luxurious.
Here is Rosie Huntington Whiteley wearing a printed bomber jacket with dark jeans. Looking gorgeous.
Or Lucy Watson with a similar look
Or with a skirt...
Here are some of my favourites.
First of all Zara, my favourite shop for very reasonably priced fashion. This is a special edition embroidered bomber jacket at £89.99
Or this Gold Toned Bomber Jacket at £49.99, perfectly on trend with its metallic finish, and sporty stripe trim.
Or a floral option in navy, Oriental Print Bomber, £29.99
There are plenty to more to choose from in Zara, so it is worth having a look.
Dorothy Perkins has this lovely jacket in blush pink which is currently reduced.
Pink Colourblock Bomber jacket, £31.50
Or if sequins are you thing, this beautiful jacket from Mango is fabulous, Sequin Bomber £69.99
The perfect way to dress up anything for a night out.
Or this floral sequin jacket, from Lipsey, has wonderful detailing. Lipsey sequin bomber jacket from Next.co.uk, £70
I think this next one with the blue and white floral design, would look great with jeans.
Topshop, Ribbon Embellished Bomber jacket, £69.00
Also from Topshop is this stunning lace number,
Lace Bomber, £69
Animal print is very much the thing this season, so why not have a leopard print bomber?
This one is Dries Van Noten, £745
Or at a fraction of the price, this is from M&S
Faux Fur Bomber jacket, £89
Or a more oriental style jacket, Embroidered Floral Bomber jacket, £59
For something a little different, there is this beauty from Anthropologie
Canberra Mesh Bomber jacket, black, £178. This would look beautiful if you are a Warm or a Deep. If you are not sure what I mean, then you haven't had your colours done with me...yet!
Or this wonderful, textured gold jacket would glam up any outfit!
Tedori Jacket, Samsoe & Samsoe, £209.95
Maje has a beautiful powder pink satin jacket, Bart Satin Bomber jacket, £270
I love the colour of this and also the pocket detail.
Finally, and i could go on for ever with these, is something just to tickle the taste buds...
This stunning jacket is from Gucci, and believe me, you don't want to know the price!!
There are so many wonderful jackets to choose from, we are spoilt for choice. But do be careful how you wear it. The more embellished it is, the plainer the rest of your outfit should be. However, if you choose a darker colour, you can wear with other prints and colours. If you are big busted choose a less embellished jacket and don't zip it up.
If you are not sure what colours suit you, why not come and have a colour consultation.
