What I'm Wearing | Bomber Jacket

I'm loving that bomber jackets are back 'in' style, they're the easiest and comfiest item to throw on over an outfit. For some reason I'd never quite found the one. Until now. This classic khaki bomber from New Look hasn't left my side this week. It's from the 'Tall' range which means it falls slightly lower (across the bum area) and I find it much more flattering on me than the bomber jackets that gather in above the bum. New Look kindly sent these items to feature as part of their new #ThisIsNewLook interactive platform. Upload a photo to Instagram or Twitter of yourself wearing your New Look buys and using the hashtag, for a chance to win £200! Not to mention finding some quality inspiration from real guys and girls wearing New Look outfits out in the real world...

For a very dressed down look, I'm throwing the jacket over skinny jeans and a white tee. It's effortless and certainly not ground breaking but it's a go-to option for those days where you just need to get stuff done. We quickly took these photos in Manchester's Northern Quarter before heading off to see Suicide Squad on its opening night. Which is brilliant by the way, don't listen to the negative press, I really enjoyed it. I don't dress up for the cinema, comfort is key and I need to keep warm (does anyone else find themselves freezing cold half way through a film?) and surprisingly this lightweight bomber holds a lot of warmth! It's definitely going to take me through to autumn and even winter if I can layer it with knitwear. I was debating whether to get it in black or khaki, I'm glad I went with the latter option, I have too much black in my wardrobe as it is and khaki green is still a very wearable staple colour.
