It is that time of year again when a T shirt is just not warm enough and you need something else to keep you warm. Put away your leather jacket or mac and go for the more casual bomber jacket.

This iconic jacket was traditionally worn by fighter pilots in WW1 with its cropped lightweight features it always pops up through time onto the catwalks and is embraced by the fashionistas world over. Some designers have taken it further and lengthened them almost to resemble oversized baseball jackets.

This season the bomber has been taken to the edge with flowered embroidery, bold prints and metalics. From soft silky fabrics to the shower proof nylon, it is a ‘must be worn’ this season. To be honest I think they are great pieces to have in any wardrobe as they are so versatile.

There is a bomber jacket for everyone this season. Lots of colours to choose from out there – black, khaki to bright or pale colours with minimal or printed designs. If you are narrow on the top, you can embrace the bright light embroidered, printed designs. If you are top heavy, go for the darker ones and a more minimal look.

I particularly like Gucci’s take on the bomber jacket this season with their use of metallic materials and choice of colours and print or embroidery detailing. I have fallen madly in love with Phillip Lim’s take on it and Todd’s…having said that minimal does look better on me. Chloe and Yves Saint Laurent have done really lovely colour combinations with their printed and embroidered versions.

Top Shop and Zara are definitely the best High Street ones I have seen and Other Stories do a great plain white one which is lovely and fresh looking. Most of the High Street jackets start from 49.00 to about 30.00. Most of the ones I seemed to look at were priced at £59.99 but I have price days like that…everything I pick up that day is the same price. Miss Mango have a leather baseball style jacket and also look in H&M for leather bomber.

Go on treat yourself to one…here are list of the best ones out this season. These are but a few as there are so many great ones out there!

The UK is definitely holding onto the lovely summer weather.  This is the season for having special days out of town and making the most of the season.  Get out there and do something different, Break that summer weekend routine in the local pub for lunch or sitting in the park. A change is as refreshing as a holiday. Whether it’s going to the seaside, a stroll around a lovely public garden or driving with the roof down to the country for lunch.  A carefree summer’s day is a great opportunity to wear something fabulous.  It doesn’t just have to be a “I don’t care what I wear because I am too hot” day.  Don’t hold back feel fresh and free in a flowing dress or a onesie either in shorts or trouser style.  They are so comfortable, unless of course you end up needing the loo in a field.  This is when you could find yourself in a bit of trouble.  No tree or cow will help you…it will be time  to look for a  forest for complete cover. “Lisa Showman”

Picnic 1,14

For That Special Picnic

 

It’s July hurray the season for summer picnics and barbeques. At the moment the weather is absolutely fantastic for sitting in the park, hanging out in your local cafe. The importance is that you are with your friends taking in the sun and eating delicious summer foods. This is also the time to shine in a newly purchased summer outfit. Let’s face it the weather in the UK is not so great…we need to embrace the moments when we can actually wear our summer clothes to the max to feel free and light without silently wishing we could put on our winter jacket also. The key purchase I think for the cold spots in the day is a lovely light denim jacket that you can slip on and off when you need to. Oh and an umbrella but that goes without saying doesn’t it?

I would like to suggest that on a really warm UK day that we change into three different summer outfits per day to make damn sure we get the best out of our summer wardrobes. But this would just be silly!! But this does in turn make me think that saving your favourite summer outfit for best means you may wear it 5 times…what a waste! So get it out and look your best…shine at that picnic. Oh and don’t forget to use sun cream.
Here are few chosen outfits for that special picnic! “Lisa Showman”
