Bomber Jackets: Spring/Summer Essential

Hi Guys,

It’s hard to believe that this post is nearly a year old and is still my most popular post! Seeing as we have a range of bomber jackets this Spring/Summer, I decided I would update this post. My inspiration still comes from last year’s MTV Movie Awards. Bomber Jackets and Sneakers were the main menswear talking points. We saw Miles Teller and Zac Efron rocking the Bomber looking both cool and casual at the awards.

Seeing how versatile this jacket is, I decided to browse online and pick my favourites from the High Street.

This pink bomber jacket from River Island is perfect for this time of year. I love the detail, it gives off a nice biker feel to it. The colour is also great for Spring/Summer so it’s perfect for a night on the town. I would pair this with a white polo shirt and dark wash slim fit denim. Add a pair of navy desert boots to smarten up the look.

This beauty was my top pick from the recent Boohoo press day. I purchased it within days of seeing it. I wore this on a recent night out and teamed it with a navy t-shirt, burgundy chinos and a pair of trainers I picked up in Primark recently. I felt that the combination worked well and I know that the jacket can also be used for a smarter look.

 

 

This Navy number from Burton is more on the smarter side of things. I would pair this with a white shirt and navy tailored trousers. I would add some black Chelsea boots to finish it off.

 

 

This satin Bomber from Mango would be a great addition to any stylish man’s wardrobe. The colour just makes it so versatile. Just think about it, you can dress like Ryan Gosling from Drive for just €89.95! This would be a timeless piece that will be used again and again.

 

 

This one from Bershka is a real bargain at €35.99. As in the picture, I would pair it would wear it with a check shirt and jeans because of the casual nature of the jacket. Also, another major plus point is that black doesn’t go out of fashion, so it will be a piece that will last season after season!

I really love this one from Topman. I won’t lie it was the Teal colour that immediately drew me to it. It really stands out! So I would recommend this as one of your statement pieces for the upcoming season.

 

Pull and Bear €46

Pull and Bear €40

 

 

Finally, we have this tan faux suede Bomber from Pull and Bear. I really liked it when I saw it recently and I’m really sorry I left it behind. It is also a bargain at €40. I really hope it is still there next time I pop in. http://www.pullandbear.com/ie/en/suede-effect-bomber-jacket-c0p100036938.html

Penneys also have a great range of bomber jackets this spring/summer.

It is considered their IT jacket for this season, make sure and check out Primark.ie to check when they are available and are priced between €18 and €28. Would it be wrong not to buy one for that price? Wouldn’t it? Of course, it would! I expect these to fly off the shelves so act fast!

I really hope you enjoyed the post and that you pick yourself up a bargain or two!

Blazing a trail

Hi Guys

Today Im gonna post about my favourite item of clothing… Blazers!!

Lets get the definition bit out of the way a Blazer is a sports jacket that isn’t worn with a pair of matching trousers. There is a wide variety of blazers out whether it be single or double breasted, what colour? how many buttons? decisions, decisions its always hard to choose from. The classic navy blazer is always the fail safe option and pretty much goes with everything. The High Street always have a good number of these available at different prices. My own personal choice for this type of blazer would be Topman or River Island as I have always found their tailoring to be of high quality and at a reasonable price.

Here is a Topman Blazer

Given that trends change regularly it is not uncommon to see blazers in a variety of prints such as checks, houndstooth, florals etc. once again being a fan of affordable fashion the high street has a number of affordable printed blazers either in store or online here are a few of my personal favourites
