Guys – How to style a bomber jacket
5th March 2017
From Kanye West to Sergio Ramos, bomber jackets are everywhere. They have a timeless appeal but still give off an effortlessly cool vibe. And one that can be transformed to reflect many styles.
It’s a perfect transitional layer for those surprising warmer winter days but also functions as a layer to wear to work or at the pub with your mates.
If you’ve been considering trying the look, check out this quick guide on how to style one from our Superdry jackets range. We’ve got plenty of choice in terms of shapes and textures, so you can choose the one that’s right for you.
Look One: Smart for work and everything in-between
Our Moody Night Flight Lite Bomber Jacket is the ideal choice if you’re looking to create a smart casual look. This jacket’s material is lightweight and comfortable, ideal for overlaying a basic tee, which can be paired with blue jeans. You could even team it up with a slim fit cardigan if you’re braving the cold. The black colour is a perfect match with some high tops to nail that All-American vibe.
Look Two: Road ready
Whether you want to ‘out-dress’ your fellow students in that 10am lecture or you’re leading a group presentation you’re majorly underprepared for and need to dress to impress, you know a leather jacket is a great choice when you want to make an impression. Our Ultra Lite Slim Leather Jacket is stylish, offers a structured fit and adds a laidback edge to any look. Pair with an over-the-shoulder bag, fitted black jeans and suede boots for a smooth yet edgy style.
Look Three: Drinks with the lads
Heading down the pub on a Friday night for a catch up with your mates? If you’ve hit the gym beforehand be sure to take along one of our Rookie Duty Bomber Jacket. Not only does it look good – but it’s the perfect transitional jacket to help you ease into the new season.
Alternatively, if you don’t mind the banter and are looking for something a little bolder, a printed bomber is a great choice. Camo is still in this season, but don’t expect to see too many green and brown colour schemes, instead grey and black camo prints is a great look for bomber jackets. Pair yours with a collared polo shirt, fitted jeans and a pair of comfy trainers for the ultimate athleisure style.
Look Four: Footie on a Saturday
Headed to watch your favourite team? Want a jacket that is a bit sporty and can be thrown on over your team shirt? Our Applique Bomber Jacket is the outerwear for the job. As we ease into the new season, its lightweight design and ribbed cuffs make it a great layer for a bit of extra warmth without being a burden. It’s also ideal for when you head down to the bar later to celebrate or grieve your team’s result.
Look Five: Date night
Date night calls for a jacket that meets that blurred line between smart and casual. You want a plain bomber jacket that works with one of the many comfy but on point tees in your wardrobe. One of our Moody Nite Flite Lite Jacket in navy is a good starting point. Alternatively, for a stronger look, a bomber jacket featuring more of a spring is a great choice – especially if you choose yours in a standout navy.
Style up your bomber using one of the looks above for inspiration and we guarantee you’ll be looking good all season.
