How to wear the Silk Bomber jacket this Fall

We have been slowly lulled into the concept of the bomber jacket for the last 18 months, however this AW16 season the bomber jacket has shaken off its casual image and gone high octane glamorous to dress up evening dresses. The fabrics are glossy with a strong influence of chinoiserie, from Gucci to Chloe the silk bomber jacket is a must-have this fall.

Fear not the exuberant designer price tags though as there are some amazing and accessible silk bombers at Topshop, Zara and most high street retailers.

In this post we show you how to style up the silk bomber.

1- Invest in a beautifully cut plissé skirt or if you are really keen on the trend buy several affordable ones to mix and match colours. Gucci’s original printed version in the picture above may be a bit too daring for most of us whose palate is now used to minimalistic patterns and neutral colours, especially as we age.

If you really can’t bear the thought of the exuberant Christmas tree look, just stick to neutral colours, strappy sandals and a low key clutch.

2- If you do fancy the idea of wearing metallics during the day, opt for a slightly shorter plissé skirt length, a ribbed sweater and a laid back pair of white sneakers by Converse, Stan Smith or Golden Goose.

3- You could also reach a cross between casual and polished effect for day, like Olivia Palermo, by opting for a sophisticated mini skirt in either lace or a jacquard print or embellished satin.

The hottest silk bomber jackets to shop for right now are the reversible styles by Topshop and Zara in either chinoiserie patterns or simple army khaki shiny fabrics.

  • One last stroll in Dubai's Citywalk this weekend, admiring the modern architecture... after 6 years in Dubai I am going to terribly miss the spirit of this city... where literally everything is possible and where you can only dream big. If only most people and countries had that same ambition, the world would be a much happier place
