The Winter 17’ marked the arrival of the bomber jacket, with every off-duty model, bloggers and style influencers all sporting various styles outside the streets of fashion week. From big puffer style bombers, to edgy print embroidered detail, the bomber jacket fast became an IT Winter wardrobe staple.
While this season the bomber jacket still has its place, the dramatic over-sized puffy style has taken a back seat in replacement of a more subtle version in the form of a luxe style. In this week’s blog post, I’ve put a street inspired look together centred around this H & M luxe bomber jacket. Below is a full break down of this look.
Bomber jackets have always had a place in my wardrobe, however admittedly after purchasing an over-sized puffer style last year…..and not exactly wearing it more than once, I was ever so hesitant to turn back to the bomber for the Winter 18 season.
However I chose to remain open to other styles and this luxe cream light weight jacket from H & M was the perfect choice for my wardrobe. The thing about bomber jackets is that not every style is going to look the same on, so you really have to decide what it is that will set yours apart and that can be worn easily with your existing pieces.
Having recently taken a short absence from all things monochrome, I once again found myself turning back to this faithful combination when styling this piece. Whenever you are hesitant about introducing a new piece into your wardrobe its actually okay to play it safe and go back to a uniform colour palette.
The shade of cream of this jacket is quite striking which made it the perfect companion to be teamed with these black wet-look jeans from Forevernew. I often love teaming wet-look jeans with classic pieces as it gives any outfit some much needed edge and adds a different element, compared to just a plain denim.
Keeping it simple underneath the jacket, I teamed a black knit top which provides some much needed warmth. Bomber jackets aren’t necessarily the warmest of winter jackets, so layer up underneath for extra warmth.
The ruching on the sleeves of the jacket and detail around the neckline add a lot of detail, I could have teamed a print/logo tee with the jacket but instead opted to keep the look more minimal. I generally like to wear the jacket worn open instead of zipping it up as I think allows for more flow and keeps the look polished.
In terms of jewellery and accessories, as you can see less is really more, aside from a subtle silver long line necklace I have chosen to focus the attention of the look on my shoes and bag. Right now I’m absolutely loving the shoe of the season which is the Sock Boot.
Super stylish and comfortable these open-toed boots will elevate any outfit. The nude shade allows the shoe to be worn with almost anything and paired with a wet look jean add some serious street cred.
For an alternative more relaxed look you can also opt for sneakers instead of heels to keep this look more casual, the choice is up to you! Complete the look by pairing your favourite tote and shades together and you’re ready to go!Wi
