It's that time of year again girls- winter is nearly upon us and the hunt for a jacket that's both stylish and practical begins! This season there's no doubt that one style has been killing it over all of the others- that's right, it's the bomber jacket. Here at IKRUSH we love this retro style; bomber jackets are super versatile and can be dressed up or down, making them a wardrobe essential for A/W 16. The only problem is deciding which one to choose...

 

First, decide if you're looking for a more casual style or one that you can rock on a night-out. The defining feature of a bomber jacket is the cuff detailing that can be found at the hemline and sleeves. For a casual look, pick one that has thicker cuffing and heavy padding- our Shani Bomber Jacket looks amazing paired with skinny jeans, a bodysuit and boots for an on-trend daytime look. If you're looking for the perfect cover-up for a party outfit, choose a bomber jacket that has a satin or metallic finish. This complements a bodycon dress and heels perfectly, creating a sleek look that even Kim K would envy!

 

Looking for something a bit different? Bomber jackets don't need to be plain or predictable. This season they come in all different styles, from floral prints to embroidered patches. We're crushing on the velour trend right now, and the Marianna Suede Bomber Jacket has been on our wish-list for a while. Team this with ripped skinny jeans, stiletto heels and a crop top for a look you can work day or night. For a Kylie Jenner inspired look, go for a camouflage printed bomber jacket that you can wear with a choker neck dress and knee high boots. This knock-out look will make sure you stand out from any crowd.

 

Once you've found the bomber jacket for you, we guarantee you'll wear it season after season and it will quickly become a firm favourite in your wardrobe!
