HOW TO
STYLE
A BOMBER
JACKET

It’s the military-inspired layering piece that’s landed with a bang – menswear editor Ian Wright shows you three easy ways to wear the spring-ready bomber jacket

 

Double up with confidence

Why wear one when you can wear two? Take it to the next level: a fine zip-through baseball cardigan will ward off the chill when layered under a tonally compatible bomber. This jacket nods to the formal – its tailoring-style fabric and suit-like shoulder shape bring structure to the usually soft silhouette.

Simply tee off your outfit

The bomber’s faithful friend is a basic T-shirt. Effortless and easy to wear, the best neckline to go for is round as it mimics the bomber’s signature curved and elasticated collar. White is classic and will go with any colour of jacket you pick, while a burgundy red complements this rust bomber perfectly to give you a significant style edge.

Step up your smart-casual game

While it may look simple, this outfit is all about carefully combined contrasts. The smart white collar of a shirt serves as an interesting counterpoint to the military origins of the bomber jacket. A richly textured knit and lighter trousers make this tone-on-tone look anything but boring.
