Trends Spring Summer 2014 |
The Bomber Jacket

 
As very obvious in my Silent Sunday post yesterday, spring has arrived. A change of season usually means taking a closer look to our wardrobes: What is missing, what needs to be replaced, what are the new trends and styles… Yes, it is that time again!

One item that is not especially easy to find is the perfect jacket, when afternoons are already warm but mornings and evenings still cool. It also has to be a piece of clothing that looks good with either trousers or skirts and dresses. As seen in Vogue Italia and on many blogs, the re-vamped bomber jacket is just the answer. I have selected a few styles on the John Lewis website that I find particularly versatile and attractive:

A classic with a nice collar and shoulder details

Very tailored, great cut and hidden front zip

 
What do you think? I own a white leather bomber jacket with coloured details. Do you have one too?

    Katia dear,

    You said it, change of season is a good time to reconsider many things, including your wardrobe. This Thursday is the first day of Spring, and by the same token the Persian New Year. I wish you and your family and loved ones a wonderful new year, filled with love, health, and prosperity!

    I would wear all of these jackets. Great choices Katia. I agree; I feel I need to have a good sort through of my wardrobe and have a revamp! Enjoy the weekend xx

    My career was with John Lewis before I left to have my son. Still my favourite shop so I must go into town and try these…all of them!

      Would you still get a discount? 😉
      They have a bigger selection, of course, but those were my favourites. xx

    I love jackets but not really a fan of the bomber. I am rather short and unless it is very fitted, they don’t give me any shape. Love the orange one, though. Fave colour at the moment x.

      I think with all the different styles available it would be worth trying them on.
      Love orange too. 🙂 xx
