One Bomber - Three Ways


Style Theory: The luxe bomber is so hot right now, however, it is definitely not a classic item, a wardrobe staple that you will have in your wardrobe for years to come. I like to dip into these trends to update my looks and make them relevant but I always make sure first, they are not a big investment piece and secondly, I get lots of wear out of them

So with this in mind Good Housekeeping asked me to write a feature of how to style the bomber in three ways, casual, evening out and smart/work. Here is how I styled my Zara bomber (link to the feature at the bottom of this blog post)...

The key is to keep your outfit underneath simple and let the jacket do the talking.

 I love this Topshop top, it has an open back so normally I would wear a white vest top underneath but on holiday I will wear over a bikini with denim shorts and flat tan sandals for a beach look.

Evening out
As you may have guessed I am slightly obsessed with tulle skirts. I love the way the bomber juxtaposes with the girliness of the skirt making it look less frou frou. I am wearing my H&M body underneath the bomber, it works well as it smooth under the skirt avoiding any lumps or bumps..

To update a day to day, smart look, throw your bomber over a blouse (I love pairing a dark red top with this bomber it brings out the embroidery) add a pair of plain black trousers and you instantly breathe life into a classic work outfit. Add a structured handbag to smarten up the slouchy jacket and you have a cool, practical look.

The luxe bomber is such an easy jacket to throw on and makes a big impact to your look, the perfect fashion 'lift' for your wardrobe.

Here's the Good Housekeeping feature

Now if the weather clears up I would really like to get on to the subject of high summer clothes! Are you a fan of the bomber, what jacket have you been wearing this summer? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xxx


  1. Wow, congrats on the article Fran, you look fabulous! I love the tulle skirt, I actually had one years ago that I must have got rid of, as I can't find it anywhere *sob* How I wish I'd kept it!
