The Only Jacket You Need This Summer

Step out onto Oxford Street and tell me how many people are wearing bomber jackets. Got bored of counting? So did I. But I did end up wanting one in pink, black, and ice white. Saturating the sartorial world with their laid-back sporty vibes, it's easy to see exactly why they are so popular. But it all depends how you want to work it. Do you go for seriously silky satin styles, embroidered in eastern-inspired prints a la Olivia Palermo. Or a modern minimalist interpretation of the MA-1, which has its history rooted in military uniforms of fighter pilots in the late 40s? And do you go super oversized to follow the vibes of Yeezy? Or keep it closely cut to the body?

Finish things off with a pair of supersized shades. Cat-eye sunglasses are set to be among the trendiest fashion accessories this summer. Remember your classic black biker? Don't throw it out - it'll never stop being cool. But consider putting it out of your sight so you're not tempted to wear it, and try your bomber out in place of it instead.

Here's all of the best bombers in every colour you could ever want.
