The bomber

I bought this knitted bomber jacket in the Jaeger sale this summer, after having my eye on it for a while.  It was during the heatwave, so it felt more than odd buying a thick knitted jacket in 30 degree heat, but the supersonic air-conditioning on the train up to London meant that it was pretty much a necessity in order to face the journey home.

And although bomber jackets have been around for a while, street style photos from the SS2014 show that they're still a popular choice, which is no surprise given their flexibility. They're easy to throw on with a pair of jeans but are also a useful counter-balance to a more dressed-up outfit, especially if there's a evening dress or pencil skirt involved. And always team with heels.
