Bomber Jacket

Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking. Except for when they’re combined with this season’s number one choice for outerwear: the bomber jacket. I struggle to do ‘casual’ that isn’t to the joggers and hoodie extreme, so this revolutionised bomber jacket is the perfect halfway-point for me. After weeks of googling, pinteresting and internet surfing for a floral bomber, I came across this hidden gem by Marks and Spencer (of all places!).

Despite the sun shining there is still a bitter bite in the air, so today I opted for my reliable joni jeans, a nude floral tee and my new bomber. It’s somewhat of a floral overload but the neutral and complimentary tones avoid causing aesthetic offence. To top it off I added in a floral daisy necklace. Busy on top but plain on the bottom: attention grabbing but not OTT. The great thing about a casual fit jacket is that it looks wrong with formal shoes, so it’s comfortable Vans or Converse every time for me now!

I’m sure that any bolder colour would condemn it to an 80s dress up box, but the neutral nudes and gold thread throughout just adds a touch of finesse to a casual and classic wardrobe necessity.
