5 of the best: these textured jackets are the BOMB (geddit?)

Because they’re BOMBER jackets you see?

One of those trends that ended up on the catwalks – rather than springing from the sketches of a designer – the bomber jacket in its latest incarnation originated in the sporting arena, bearing more resemblance to an American football jacket than the military uniform from which it got its name. This raglan-sleeved, letterman style filtered up via ‘the street’ i.e. style bloggers took photos of hipsters wearing them. Having come full circle, the spring catwalks were basically carpet bombed with them, from DKNY’s black silk longline NFL style to Balenciaga’s patchwork denim version. Having been on the high street for a few seasons now, the athletic hallmarks are less evident in the latest crop of bombers, making it a more versatile proposition. Here are five textured bomber jackets that won’t make you look like an NFL player.

Bellfield Denim Bomber Jacket, £50, ASOS

Acid-washed and oversized, make this the replacement for that shrunken, ripped denim jacket you’ve been meaning to ditch for years.

Tapestry Jacquard Bomber Jacket, £59.99, Mango

Bring a delicate Delft pottery vibe to the often manly bomber, this is pretty enough to wear over a dress to an early Spring wedding.

Beaded Bomber Jacket, £40 (was £100), River Island
How could you possibly be in a bad mood walking around in this yellow and red sequin-covered delight? And it’s on sale. I didn’t think clothing could be so dopamine-inducing.

Miracle Bomber by The Ragged Priest, £70, Topshop
In shiny purple organza with a white print that reminds me of sugar puffs, this is another jacket which is ‘cheerful’ to say the least. They’ve got it in silver, blue and orange too, in case the mauve isn’t quite bright enough.

F&F Lace Bomber Jacket, £20, Tesco

Not so hot from a practical point of view (it’s basically see-through)  but this black lace bomber will most definitely get you sparking.
