Trending Now: The Floral Bomber Jacket

The one-time 90’s favourite and go-to for tricky transeasonal dressing, the floral bomber jacket is certainly proving it’s worth this season. With pretty, botanical-inspired embroidery, the bomber also has a touch of the ‘borrowed-from-the-boys’ which means it really does tick all the boxes. This is how we like to style the floral bomber. Matchy matchy. Blame Margaret. As much as we love to pair the bomber with sneakers and skinny jeans (although, the

Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.

Spring is in the air, sort of, and that means an onslaught of bloomin’ florals. Interpret that as you will.

Neither is good. So keeping that in mind, and that
