For Spring/Summer 2016, one of the biggest fashion treasures to get – even with a minor delay – is the embellished green bomber jacket. It’s all about the elevated sporty look that exudes an element of luxury and eclecticism. Embellishment comes in the form of embroidery, beading or sequins, mostly with references to the 70s and 80s. Hip bloggers, celebrities, and the whole fashionable world embrace it as the new ‘it’ item!
Wild or Minimalist
Clare Waight Keller, Creative Director of Chloé, designed a much-discussed version of it, adorned with fierce tigers and sweet floral appliqué, and styled with leopard print top. It was an unexpected mix of wild nature and sports with a bohemian touch. Yet, you can go the minimalist way with equal success!
The Basic Users
Top model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley incorporated it into a cool off-duty traveller’s outfit that included a grey T-shirt and black skinny jeans. TV host Cheryl Cole combined it with ‘Mad Men’ secretary-style specs and simple black T-shirt on the Food Revolution Day, while cooking on camera with Jamie Oliver!
Versus Other Colors
Bomber jackets come in an array of colors, yet this season green seems to be the most eye-catching alternative. It’s bright against a dull urban setting, and it’s strongly related to the beauty of nature. Green looks always pleasant and youthful!
Tuning in with the retro-romantic spirit of the season and basically pioneering the granny-chic trend, infusing it with sporty elements, Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele designed his own green bomber jacket and styled it on the catwalk with an ethereal pink blouse with oversized bows and a full skirt. Bloggers further experimented with the pink-green combo and the romantic side.
On Stage or Elsewhere
Taylor Swift wore a sequined version by Jaded London during her ‘1989’ tour performances, as well as on the streets. On stage, she combined it with a mini metallic skirt in plum, while off-duty, she dressed it down with nude pants and a light blue button-down. She matched it with cool green booties!
The Smart Move
You can shop the look at a way more reasonable price tag. Our Maje Bacary Embroidered Stretch-Satin Bomber Jacket has the classic ribbed high collar, cuffs, and hem with a sporty three-stripe motif, as well as an eye-catching embroidered crest on the chest displaying a cactus and other floral details in graffiti-like style! You can style it with the Alice + Olivia Eartha Jacquard Midi Skirt or with the Alice + Olivia Luisa Floral Jacquard Box Pleat Midi Skirt for a girly look!
The Simplicity of It
You can simplify in the way Cheryl Cole did, styling it with sleek black separates. For a nice sporty look, style it with the Lanvin Corded Ribbon Stripe Wool Jogging Pants . It’s daytime luxury!
