Blazer v Bomber

Navigating Spring weather can sometimes be tricky here in the UK as it changes so often (sometimes within the course of a single day!)

It (usually) isn’t cold enough for a heavy coat but you still need an outer layer to keep the chill out until the temperatures really start to soar (we hope!)

This season there are a lot of lightweight outerwear options. We’ve already taken you through what to look for in a trench coat (you can read that post here), so in this post we thought we’d give you the lowdown on a couple of other key outerwear trends; Blazers and Bombers.


Blazers have been a staple of many a chic wardrobe for several seasons now and they’re back again for Spring 2018.

Wear it if… you fall into the Classic, City Chic or Romantic style personalty categories. A blazer will give a polished feel to your look and never goes out of style. Just ensure that whether single or double-breasted, structured or unconstructed, your blazer works with your body shape.

Pair it with… skinny jeans or tailored trousers for a smart/casual look, a skirt and lightweight top/blouse for a more formal feel or do as the fash-pack are doing and layer a medium-weight hoodie underneath for a more laid-back feel.

Finish your look..… by adding delicate layered necklaces, a statement ring or tasselled earrings to bring your outfit up-to-date and inject some personality.


Bombers are the cool-girl outerwear choice for Spring/Summer and with so many colours, patterns and embellished options available you will be spoilt for choice.

Wear it if… you fall into the Dramatic, Creative or Natural style personality categories. A bomber jacket gives your look a laid-back feel and works with so many different looks, meaning you’ll reach for it time and again.

Pair it with… anything and everything! Keep your look eclectic and interesting by mixing your bomber jacket with everything from jeans to maxi skirts, boho dresses to mini skirts and everything you can think of in-between.

Finish your look… by opting for a little interest. There are many embroidered options available (flowers, sports logos etc.) or you could choose a bomber in the colour of the year, ultra violet. The choice is yours so go as eclectic and show-stopping as you dare!
