Shop the Trend: Bombers for Fall

After the past month of runway shows, we can clearly see that the bomber jacket is here to stay. And while it came onto the scene heavy in shiny satins and nature-inspired embroidery, this season it’s turning a bit more track and letterman in shape with a touch of evening-wear thanks to sequins and embellishments along with fabrics like velvet and lace. They’re also slightly heavier with leathers and furs so they’re not only fashionable but functional for the colder season ahead. For instance, our own OP dons a stunner a la Elie Saab which is crying to be worn with far more than a simple pair of skinnies – hence the extravagant pair of La Boutique flared trousers.


For something a bit less editorial but none the less polished and chic, dress up your bomber game this fall/winter by spinning traditional suiting and wearing it with a pair of trousers or culottes or consider layering it over a spaghetti strap velvet slip with tights and boots or leather dungarees. No matter how you wear it, it’s time to think outside of the box with this style, and now, more than ever, there are plenty of fun options to play dress up with.
