As I mentioned last week, my love for the pink bomber was born on the day I tried on Valfré’s Mermaid jacket at Lady Petrova. Wearing it felt like a magical hug and though I fell head over heels for it, I was there to buy a dress I’d had my eye on forever so I ended up leaving the bomber behind. A week later it was sold out and I really regretted not buying it, so I started looking for an alternative.
That’s when I noticed that pink bombers were popping up everywhere. I saw a Bardot one at Myer that I would have brought home with me if it weren’t for the stripe detail on the sleeves. A couple of weeks later, I walked past Forever New and all of a sudden I was really glad I didn’t buy the Valfré jacket. I should have known they’d have something even more amazing than I what I hoped for – after all, anything anyone can do, Forever New can do better.
The Remi bomber stole my heart because the jacquard pattern makes it a little more chic. It’d look really good even paired with a little black dress and heels for a night out. I’ve never been much of a casual girl, but ever since I quit my retail job and started working from home, I noticed I’m becoming less dressy. Still, wearing a bomber jacket is something I wouldn’t have thought to do even six months ago. It’s just too cool for me. That’s why I was glad to come across something in a colour and fabric that matches my wardrobe a little bit better; it made it easier to try out a different style while still being me.
The most popular way to wear a bomber jacket is matching it with a loose t-shirt, jeans, sneakers (especially white ones) and a choker. I tried to make this combo a little more fancy by adding a fitter t-shirt, a metal choker and heeled ankle boots, and I loved the result. Who knows, next time I might even take the plunge and dress it down completely. Now tell me: how would you wear this gorgeous pink bomber?
