In case you haven’t noticed, the 90’s are back with an almighty bang! From celebrities and supermodels, to the world’s most influential fashion bloggers, the era of tattoo chokers and tie-dye everything is being celebrated all round. A huge part of the style revival is without doubt the reintroduction of the iconic satin bomber jacket.
From the Pink Ladies to the hip-hop hunnies of the nineties and naughties, satin bombers have helped women to feel fierce, stylish and comfortable for decades and it seems they’re out to do the same again.
Top fashion publications are currently reporting on the rise of the trend in upcoming lines, and within celeb and supermodel circles. Beyoncé and Ellie Goulding even graced the pages of Vogue this month thanks to their stylish choice of jacket.
Girls of the moment Rihanna, Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne are also firm fans of the satin bomber and have been spotted out and about in them, rocking different on-trend looks.
Rihanna recently put a polished spin on her bomber jacket by pairing it with a pencil skirt and delicate heels. Oozing sophistication, Rihanna shows just how to wear hers as an alternative to the run of the mill basic blazer.
Cara followed suit by keeping it simple with black skinnies and, as always, looks effortlessly stylish in her choice of the season’s must have.
Putting her own individual spin on the piece as per usual, Rita Ora instead paid homage to the jacket’s hip hop roots and layered it over a mesh top, tiny mirco-shorts and sneakers. Lashings of accessories complete the look.
What these ladies really demonstrate is the versatility of this staple jacket. The satin bomber can effortlessly adapt to many different looks, outfits and personalities.
Importantly, it can also be used to conjure up a military edge, a key trend from that comes back year after year. A simple pair of aviators will help you to nail the trend in one.
The versatility and range of different trends this jacket can help to hit has given this piece an undeniable presence within the fashion industry from year to year. Cool, edgy, comfortable and with a definite casual edge, bombers are a fashion forward alternative to the standard blazers and lightweight jackets.
Ideal for transitional, trans-seasonal dressing, satin bombers are lightweight enough to wear during the summer, but can be layered under anything and everything during the colder months.
