Bomber jackets have been EVERYWHERE this year and they're certainly not going to go away for the autumn and winter. If anything, they've been given a serious style upgrade. Everyone can rock one as theres plenty of variety in terms of style, colour, size and budget.
I wrote about the longline bomber that I love for daytime wear in this post but today I thought I'd share with you something a little more special... The Manon Baptise Sequin Bomber.
Seriously, how incredible is this plus size bomber jacket? I get major heart eyed emojis every time I look at it let alone wear it.
I first learned of plus size design house Manon Baptiste through premium fashion retailer Navabi. Season after season, they create timeless pieces in the finest fabrics with quality thats built to last.
The Manon Baptiste Sequin Bomber Jacket gives a whole new meaning to the sports luxe trend. It combines the loose fitting, relaxed style of a bomber jacket with the sparkle of black sequins which instantly upgrades it to a garment that could be worn during the day or at night.
This jacket is true to size but with a relaxed fit so it feels a little generous in the best possible way. I love how this jacket looks when worn open and when its closed too so I really get the best of both worlds with it.
Like other bombers, this one has a mandarin collar with cuffs to the sleeves and hem which are stretchy but the quality of the fabric feels far superior to other jackets I've worn.
There's a pocket on either side of the bomber which come tacked together when the jacket arrives. I love that there's pockets in this jacket as the lining is actually soft and really does keep my hands warm. The whole jacket in itself keeps me feeling warm, even with just a t shirt underneath. It has such a comfortable fit and feel yet looks sparkly and luxe to the outside world.
Aside from the beautiful aesthetic of this jacket, what I love the most about it is the incredible high quality. It feels very luxe and is exceptionally well made.
Today I've shown how I would style the jacket for a sports luxe daytime look, with a black t shirt, my leather leggings (similar) and my new Claudia Ghizziani trainers in black (also available in pewter) that I bought from TK Maxx. I've been looking for a smarter pair of trainers for off duty days for ages now and these tick all the right boxes. They're so similar to the Balenciaga Race Runners with the elasticated panel but they're at a tiny fraction of the price!
I'll also be styling this jacket up for more of a night out look very soon as it is definitely a piece that I'm going to be wearing on my own Christmas nights out.
It looks great when worn with a cami, skinny jeans and heels with a little clutch bag, as you get the sparkle from the sequins but the comfort and warmth from the jacket too!
Now that the festive season is rapidly approaching, I feel as though I'm going to get so much more wear out of this bomber and I can't wait to share some more looks over on my Instagram.
If you're looking for a luxe addition to your wardrobe this winter, I'd not hesitate in recommending the Manon Baptiste Sequin Bomber Jacket.
