Next Bomber Jacket- 6 Bloggers, 6 Ways

Today I’m taking part in a style challenge. 

Six bloggers have each been sent a bomber jacket from Next and asked to style it- thank you Next. It’s gorgeous.

I love to see red with navy (it’s that nautical thing again!) so I put mine with a classic navy breton.

The jacket is great quality, thick jersey and is in the orangey-red that I prefer.
I love the honeycomb style quilting.
It’s also available in grey which looks equally good.
I’ve styled it very casually, but I think it would beautifully with smarter jeans and a pair of heels. It could be popped over a pair of shorts or bikini in the summer, layered with a t-shirt or worn with a dress.

Here is how my friends and fellow bloggers have styled theirs. 

It’s really rather versatile.

Next to me from left to right:

Fiona from Avenue 57

Frances from School Run Style

Avril from School Gate Style
Joanna from Poppy’s Style
Michelle from My Fashionable 40s

Do go and take a look at their blog posts for more photographs.
I’ll certainly be taking inspiration from their styles.

Love Liz x

    Oh you chose wisely! That red shade is beyond stunning on you! You're right – it's clearly a very versatile jacket judging by all the different ways it was styled. Looking lovely Liz!

    If I had the red I would have worn as you did – I LOVE the red/white/blue look. Looks great also with the brogues

    I love the red on you Liz – if only I was brave enough to pull something like this off. Very simply done but very effective – lovely!

      Sue, you look wonderful in everything but thank you for the lovely compliment x

    I am so with you on the nautical theme, I would probably have put a red one over a classic breton. Looks lovely Liz x

    Just gorgeous Liz! I love it with the Breton – I'm so glad I chose the red – I'm excited to try it with other colors too!

    • April 7, 2014 / 10:25 pm

      Thank you Joanna. I loved all of your style ideas. It really is very versatile isn't it xxx

      Thank you Andrea. It's the first collaboration I've done with other bloggers and it's been brilliant. I've loved seeing how the other girls styled theirs xxx

    Aaaaaaahhhh…. You are all teasing me with this amazing jacket. I absolutely adore it. It is perfect. I was certain that I was going to get the grey one but now when I see the red one I love it just as much. The red really does suit you best. Decisions decisions. I adore how you styled it. It looks fantastic on all of you. What a great piece. What is the sizing like? Would you say it is true to size?

    • April 7, 2014 / 10:28 pm

      Celina, I think it is true to size. I'm wearing a Uk 12 which is usual for me in a jacket xxx

    • April 7, 2014 / 10:29 pm

      Thanks Emma. Yes, I love the texture too. It's such a nice cut too xxx

  11. April 7, 2014 / 4:44 pm

    Really enjoying the nautical approach. Red is your colour.

  12. April 7, 2014 / 8:33 pm

    I can't believe just how perfect this red is on you Liz – you've got it spot on! Plus the jacket's a great shape, and I love love love your metallic lace-ups (you know me and brogues…)!

      Thank you lovely. It's my favourite shade of red. I love the metallic brogues too. They're last year's and I love them as much now as I did when they were new xxx

  13. April 7, 2014 / 9:18 pm

    I love the red! The style of that jacket is so versatile – I bet you'll get lots of wear out of it.

    • April 7, 2014 / 10:30 pm

      Thank you Stacey. I'm sure I'll wear it a lot. I've taken lots of ideas from my fellow bloggers already xxx

  14. April 7, 2014 / 11:24 pm

    Beautifully classic styling and I am totally in love with your brogues. Just gorgeous!

    Hi there! Great outfit choice, the bomber works so well with Breton stripes! This will be a really stylish addition to your wardrobe! x

    I definitely wasn't expecting to like this jacket so much in the red – it's stunning on you and I loved the breton combination so much, I've ordered that colour in a breton from Boden today! You look stunning and it was so great to collaborate with you on this post Liz, Ax
