When Olivia Palermo rocked that reversible Topshop bomber at London Fashion Week, it subsequently became the most covetable SS16 piece and sold out almost immediately. Since then, we've seen statement bomber jackets crop up across both high street and high end. Complete with different colours, fabrics and designs, they've become an incredibly versatile piece of outerwear that is no longer reserved for just the sporty-types amongst the fashion world.
When I saw this particular design on the Topshop Instagram, I knew I needed it in my wardrobe. The classic bomber shape featuring a metallic, rust-coloured finish with a sateen texture. It's the perfect statement piece to finish off any outfit from jeans & a t-shirt, or even better, SS16's other must-have - a pair of dungarees.
The colour looks perfect styled with a monochrome outfit, but I also love how it looks paired with complimenting colours such as khaki green. The metallic shine gives the jacket a glam-rock vibe, whilst the bomber shape adds a sort of 90s sporty-spice effect, together giving you an effortlessly cool, laid-back look to any outfit. I love throwing it on with studded ankle boots and blue straight-leg jeans for a casual daytime look, or paired with a sleek black shirt dress and heels for an evening out.
Will you be rocking a statement bomber jacket this Spring / Summer? Let me know how you'd style yours.
