These Jackets are the Bomb

The bomber jacket has been on and off the radar with increased regularity since Gucci did a fabulous one a few years ago. I remember it very well as I loved it and it came in a fabulous bordeaux leather...alas it didn't make it into my wardrobe but my superstar Mum did get me a friggin fabulous cream one for Xmas a couple of years ago and with my tender loving care it still looks as good as new.

Which is handy as the bomber jacket is firmly back 'on'. Remember they look best when worn snug so leave the chunky jumpers out to avoid le michelin homme look.

Here's my pick of the best of the bunch.

These are all from the best shopping site in the UK
Interestingly enough I'm not the biggest fan of black leather but these are all pretty fabulous. I love the supersnug fit of the Ted Baker, love the pintucked detail of the ASOS jacket and at such a great price you can't lose.
LEFT: Ted Baker Big Collar Jacket 295GBP
CENTRE: ASOS pintucked leather jacket 85GBP
RIGHT: Oasis jacket 140GBP.

A lightweight alternative to the leather biker jacket, this cotton jacket from BB dakota in pale grey is a good everyday jacket.

This Wrangler jacket has a lived in look and its quite possibly one of my favourite shades of brown. Let's call it butterscotch caramel...sounds great doesn't it? 225GBP Firetrap Big Collar Bomber Jacket 295GBP, white and off white add a touch of glamour to a decidedly understated look.

The yummy reddish brown colour on this retro style bomber jacket is what makes this look fabulous. And expensive. $395. At 85GBP, asos are really coming up trumps with the leather jackets. This is a cute, sexy twist on the classic bomber shape, love it and love the colour.

Since they launched I've loved the name of this company...Young, Fabulous and Broke. Its the bright patterned lining that makes this black bomber truly fabulous. $370

Members' Only has been revived for 2008 from their heyday in the 80s. This biker jacket is a classic colour and cut and a good alternative to the bomber shape. $768.

This is another non-leather bomber jacket from Hinge. Great colour, great cut, great price. $98

And lets end for the weekend on a cheap and cheerful note. never leave you in a fashion rut and this little jacket is supercute with a supercute price...$19!!!

Have a good weekend

I love leather coats. I have a couple of them, and they're just wonderful. Asos is incredible.
