The bomber jacket has been the surprising must-have item for the past two seasons, and, much to our pleasure, it appears to be here to stay for AW16.

Whether you go silky and feminine or sporty and simple, plain, quilted or exquisitely embroidered, there's a bomber to suit every look for both men and women.

A few things to keep in mind...

  1. If it's a feminine, soft look you're after, opt for a pink or pastel jacket and layer it over a slinky dress or floaty skirt.
  2. To nail the athleisure look, go for colour block with a black bomber, distressed jeans and white trainers.
  3. To make a statement, pick a bold coloured or embroidered jacket and match with chic culottes or trend-led trousers (we particularly love white).
  4. Give a sleek dress an edge by opting for an oversized bomber (army green works well with a LBD) and rolling up the sleeves.

Voila! Perfect, minimal weekend style, no matter the occasion.
