A bomber jacket is a chic, casual way to cover up when you don’t want a full-on winter coat. With the promise of spring finally around the corner, we’re feeling inspired by the pretty floral designs hitting the shops. Throw a bomber jacket over your workwear for a smart cover-up, or use it as a stylish addition to your outfit for a night out.
The bomber jacket has definitely been having a comeback – there’s a whole range out there to suit every style and budget, from casual and grungy, to pastel and pretty. After the darker colours of winter, we’ve chosen a couple from high street to high end that embrace spring prettiness, without being too sickly!
We love the combination of pretty prints and embroidery with the slouchy, casual design of these two favourites from high street brand Zara and high-end Net-A-Porter.
Find the perfect bomber jacket
Our two top picks – whatever your budget!
High Street – Printed Bomber Jacket, Zara, £39.99
Zara has always been a high street favourite here at Average Janes. It’s our go-to when we want something stylish and flattering to add to our wardrobe, particularly for workwear pieces and gorgeous jackets. We love the punchy colours of this printed bomber jacket. Floral without being too twee. Dress it down with jeans and your favourite pair of trainers – or throw it over a cute skater dress and boots.
Printed Bomber Jacket – available from Zara – £39.99
High End – Embroidered Bomber Jacket, Needle & Thread, £213
If you feel like splashing out on more of an investment piece, then take a look at this beautiful embroidered number from Needle & Thread. Definitely one that will stretch your budget, but a gorgeous jacket. Needle & Thread are known for their intricately detailed designs, and this is a really pretty look just in time for the spring months.
Embroidered Bomber Jacket – available from Needle & Thread on Net-A-Porter, £213
That’s our top bomber jacket picks as spring starts to peep around the corner.
