The weather hasn't been playing ball recently, forcing me to layer up, yes in August! It's certainly not T-shirt weather out there. This weather has made me turn to my wardrobe for something I don't own, but really need. A bomber jacket. This is the perfect piece to own when the typical British summer is living up to its name. That being cold, warm, wet, sunny, windy, lightning- all in the space of a week.

A bomber jacket also seems to be this seasons hottest piece, with the likes of Gucci & Saint Laurent stocking an endless selection of bomber jackets online in their AW17 collections. However, if you haven't got a spare £2,500, you can always pick a bomber up for as little as £30 on the high street. A bomber jacket is the perfect piece to suit the bipolar weather we're all experiencing at the moment. As you can see, the one I've just bought looks pretty bloody cool. It's a navy blue jacket, with silver zip & feature arm pocket.

Every brand does their own take on the bomber, that originates from the classic design first worn as a military uniform. Worn back in the 50's for its functionality as a lightweight jacket, the classic bomber kept soldiers warm, and allowed them to move freely. The military bomber jacket was made to be a very versatile piece for everyone to wear and still to this day, nothing has changed. It's a timeless piece! I'm sure everyone will recognise the classic khaki green shell and bright orange lining, of one of the most famous bomber jacket in history, think Tom Cruise in Topgun!

The bomber jacket I chose is navy blue and is made from 100% cotton. The jacket also comes in khaki. It features a zip pocket detail on one arm, and two front hand warming pockets. It's a simple yet functional piece with your classic zip up front. I bought the jacket in a size small, which I think looks sweet and does the job as a lighter moveable layer.

I found the range of bomber jackets online to be truly huge! You can pick a bomber jacket up for quite a reasonable price, my bomber jacket was only £29.99. I've featured five additional favourites of mine, from various online sites ranging from a similar £30 jacket up to £114. Check my list of bombers out below.
