Yes, I hear you say. "The bomber has been around for ages!" I agree, but instead of being a 90's trend piece it is now considered, for me at least, a staple piece in my wardrobe. I now look at my bomber like my leather jacket; timeless, chic and totally interchangeable. I've teamed up with Wallis to bring to you "two ways to wear" showing you how versatile a bomber jacket can really be.

First up the black satin bomber jacket. First of all it is super light, making it the perfect addition to your Summer wardrobe! I struggle in Summer as I simply can't go out with some type of jacket/layering option-I hate being cold and we all know what our seasons are like in England. On the plus side, if the weather is overachieving like it has done lately theres no need to worry about a leather jacket for example weighing your bag down.

Bottom line, it's versatile. (As is any kind of black item, but you already knew that!) Being versatile means we are able to wear it for any occasion, day or night, wedding or holiday. I especially love changing up my looks between day and night, and this bomber looks super chic paired with jeans, a breton and a pair of converse in the day, and equally as desirable layered over a maxi and heels.

If you're worried about breaking into the trend try styling your bomber in a similar way to what I've done; a long sleeved tee, a classic pair of jeans and a statement accessory.

I have to admit, I "ummed" and "ahhed" over this floral bomber for quiet some time. If you know my style well you know that prints don't quiet cut it in my super basic, sleek and monochrome wardrobe. But you know what, style is all about experimenting and I'm actually so glad I chose it as I'm really loving the print.

Considering loud prints and bold patterns are really not my forty I thought I'd keep this look super basic, I'm sure there's a couple of you out there like me that freak out when faced with a floral/ somewhat colourful item of clothing. And for me it works out in my favour to keep the rest of the outfit low key. I paired the floral bomber with a beige oversized jumper which compliments the florals perfectly. Dressed down with a basic step hem skinnies and my all time favourite Gucci pairing.

Although I did feel out of my comfort zone at first, I'm actually really looking forward to styling this jacket up again!
