Blazer Vs Bomber
I hope you are all ok?
I wanted to do a quick piece on two spring wardrobe favourites- the blazer and the bomber, as they are so useful to have during spring and autumn when it isn’t cold enough for a heavy coat but you still need an outer layer to keep the chill out. Seeing as we are now in March and I have been wearing my own bomber jacket today- I thought it timely!
Blazers are an absolute staple and they’re back again for Spring 2019.
Wear it if… you want to give a polished feel to your look. It won’t date easily and there are so many different ways you can wear them. Just ensure that whether single or double-breasted, structured or unconstructed, your blazer works with your body shape.
Pair it with… skinny jeans or tailored trousers for a smart/casual look, or a skirt and lightweight top/blouse for a more formal feel. A look I love is to layer a medium-weight hoodie underneath for a more laid-back feel.
Finish your look..… by adding delicate layered necklaces, a statement ring or tasselled earrings to bring your outfit up-to-date and inject some personality.
Bombers are an alternative choice for Spring/Summer and with so many colours, patterns and embellished options available you will be spoilt for choice.
Wear it if… you want a laid-back feel as they work with so many different looks, meaning you’ll reach for it time and again.
Pair it with… anything and everything! Keep your look eclectic and interesting by mixing your bomber jacket with jeans to maxi skirts, boho dresses to mini skirts and everything you can think of in-between! Just be careful if you are “neat” in your waist- a bomber can add a lot of volume here and make you look bigger then you actually are.
Finish your look… by opting for a little interest. There are many embroidered options available (flowers, sports logos etc.) or you could choose a bomber in the colour of the year, coral pink.
