The Embroidered Bomber Jacket Just Won't Go Away—and That's a Good Thing

What's silky, colourful and embellished all over? Embroidered bomber jackets, of course. This style of jacket has been making quite the statement in recent collections and street style imagery alike, and it's selling out on retail sites left and right (no surprises there). There is something special about this jacket that we can't quite put our finger on. Is it the contrast of the ornate embroidery on the sporty silhouette? Or is it the statement-making colours and unique detailing?

Either way, we love everything about them. From the eccentric Gucci pieces adored by the street style set to the unbelievably chic high-street offerings, these satin toppers are basically begging us to wear them, and we will definitely oblige.

Style Notes: Embrace brights when choosing your new bomber. A cobalt blue, red or even purple will instantly breathe life into your off-duty wardrobe.
