With its minimal design and lightweight construction, a bomber jacket is the perfect extra layer for spring days and cooler summer evenings. Here are five of the finest options out there.
5 LIGHT BOMBER JACKETS FOR SPRING
By Kasia Hastings, 25 April 2017
Being the best-dressed man in the office comes with its drawbacks – you're always after something that’ll help you stay one step ahead. Granted, Maharishi’s salmon MA1 bomber is an investment piece, but a sustainable cut like this in the perfect shade of pink is guaranteed to cement your sartorial status for years to come.
Or, if you were a fan of last summer’s souvenir jacket, then a silky, floral-print bomber is the update you’ve been angling for. Go for a Japanese-inspired design in a neutral colour and team with a T-shirt and jeans to keep things understated.
Alternatively, if your wardrobe requires something simpler, Espirit’s camel jacket is cool, casual and uncomplicated. River Island’s washed-pink MA1 bomber is equally excellent, and will work with lighter denim and a pair of canvas kicks.
Finally, we have the black bomber jacket: summer edition. A lighter, seasonal riff on the goth-architect-dj-minimalist favourite, this discreet ASOS classic is for you if you like to keep things subtle and straight-forward.
