It’s a legendary party location – there’s just no better spot for sun, sea, sand and shots than Ibiza. But if you’re a wide eyed newbie to the whole scene, you’re probably wondering what to wear to get noticed in the hottest clubs and at all the pool parties you’ll no doubt find yourself at. Here’s the lowdown:
What to wear in Ibiza
This year, it’s all about slogan tees, hot prints and personalised fashion. Don’t be afraid to embrace retro sportswear styles and mix these with modern everyday designs. When it comes to Ibiza clubbing outfits, go for key pieces that wouldn’t look out of place on the beach; so sheer cover ups work well for the girls and chino shorts are a good choice for you boys.
– Fashion swimwear – for the impromptu boat party
There’ll be more pool parties and boat events than you can shake a flamingo shaped inflatable at, so ensure you pack plenty of good looking swimwear.
For those spontaneous girls, swimwear that doubles up as eveningwear is a must, especially when you get invited last minute to a boat party that looks like it will carry on well into the early hours of the morning. Think tropical printed one-pieces and halter neck bikinis that can be casual with a pair of denim shorts and or be flirty and feminine with a skirt.
Lads, never doubt the power of a pair of good looking swim shorts – these be teamed with graphic tee or vest for a night partying on the waves before finishing up at a club back on the island.
Book tickets for:
Float Your Boat – Tickets €30 and include entry to club
This is the best party to get warmed up at and in 2017 is teaming up with nightclub Privilege with DJ Carl Cox and Hï Ibiza where Eric Prydz now has residency. Set sail from San Antonio and pre-party as the sun sets.
– Keep it casual – for sandy nights at Bora Bora
This is the place to go for a beach party and is perfect if you just don’t want to leave the sand. The parties start early, dancing on the tables is encouraged and the tunes play until the sun rises – ideal if you’re staying in a hotel nearby and can nip back for a quick freshen up before the evening begins.
Bodysuits and beach shorts are an ideal combo for a night dancing with sand in between your toes. Don’t be afraid to embrace summer festival trends like glitter roots or pastel hair to ensure you don’t look like a hot mess in every professional club photographer snap.
Throw on a vest but leave the swim shorts on and swap the flip flops for slip-on espadrilles before getting the shots in.
Book tickets for:
No need to book anything. Bora Bora is a free for all, which helps create that incredible party vibe all day long. Sunday beach parties are a must – keep an eye on the Facebook page to see what’s happening.
– Going out out outfits – for the VIP club treatment
The bigger nightclubs expect guests to dress up a little, so ensure you have time to nip back to your hotel to spruce up before making your way there.
Rock a bodycon dress and platform sandals for a night under the strobe lights, leave hair tousled with salt spray and enhance the tan with bronzer and highlighter on cheekbones.
Avoid shorts if you’re looking for VIP treatment – instead opt for lightweight chinos or even jeans and pair these with a plain fitted t-shirt – avoid taking this off later and waving it round your head or the bouncers will step in.
Book tickets for:
Pacha – prices vary per event
One of the hottest club scenes on the island. If you’re headed to Pacha, it’s a good idea to book now and get the VIP treatment. Sip champers while overlooking the dancefloor and enjoying a table reserved for just you and your mates – until that group of girls you’ve been eyeing heads over.
Where to stay in Ibiza:
Ibiza Town – It looks quaint – with its winding streets and tiny alleys – but Pacha, one of the most established clubs on the island, is located here.
Playa d’en Bossa – The main destination for revelers – here you’ll find the super clubs (Sankey, Ushuaïa and Hard Rock). It’s also where Bora Bora is located and there’s a whole strip full of hotels to head back to when the sun starts to rise.
San Antonio – One of the most happening locations in Ibiza, all the boat parties take off from here – plus it’s the best spot for evening drinks with Café Mambo, Ocean Beach and Café Del Mar all setting the party scene day and night.
Photo I.D. – Your youthful looks will be the end of you when you get turned away from the club if you don’t have your ID. Take your driving license though – you really don’t want to lose your passport on a big night out.
Tickets – The biggest events require pre-booked tickets so avoid disappointment and grab these now.
Sun cream for the day – No one wants to look like a lobster on the dance floor.
Travel insurance – Just in case you do lose something valuable after partying the night away.

Cast your mind back to that Instagram scroll this morning – how many sandy beaches, six packs and bikinis did you see? Probably a fair few (sigh.)
Instead of getting hung up on those holiday Insta stories, it’s time to up your game and find a way to motivate yourself to get moving too.
But don’t just do it for the likes or the swimwear you’ve been eying. Do it because – admit it – it does feel good to get out there, move your body and look good for the summer as well. *insert bicep curl emoji here*
Motivation still low? Then we’ve got you covered with some clever ways to find motivation to work out:
- Sign up
It doesn’t have to be a marathon or a wade through the mud style event – just your nearest Saturday park run or a fun inflatable 5k are good starting points for getting fit and giving yourself a little extra motivation to workout. You’re going to need to feel ready for these events – so any excuse to squeeze in a cardio session or train your upper body is essential.
- Improve it
Be prepared for the crushing disappointment of seeing you’ve only burned 50 calories after jogging for 20 minutes…BUT tracking your steps/stats/sleep can be strangely addictive and could even encourage you to start beating your personal bests. Plus, there’s no excuse to not get out in your gym gear, now that the warmer weather is here.
Took 5,000 steps yesterday? Do 6,000 today. Exercised twice last week? Squeeze in a walk on your rest days. You can look back on the data on your tracker device with a new sense of satisfaction and the challenge to improve your stats should give you the motivation to workout more.
Oh and if you wear your tracker for a night out and spend a significant amount of time on the dance floor it counts it as exercise – bonus.
- Cut it
Knowing that your workout will be over quickly is a great motivator. So, cut your workout time down and plan in a couple of seven-minute HIIT sessions – which are high intensity interval workouts that aim to get your heart racing in a short period of time.
There are loads of apps available to download to get you started like, right now. You can complete these in the garden or even in the local park so there’s no excuse if you don’t have a gym membership (sorry, not sorry).
- New gym kit
Nothing spurs us on more than a fresh gym kit. Ladies – think snug leggings and a fitted sports bra. Guys – shiny new trainers and an easy to throw on vest are great when you want to get a sweat on. If you’re more into water based workouts grab a flash new bikini or pair of swim shorts to show off poolside – before completing those laps.
- Note progress
Whatever your reason for wanting to workout more – whether it’s to lift heavier or complete an event – it’s a good idea to update your progress on your achievements. You could take photos if you’re trimming up and keep note of your times if you’re training for a big sporting event – looking back on how far you’ve come is a great motivator to keep going.
- Phone a friend
Mates are great when it comes to encouraging you to work out – not only do they make you feel guilty for missing a session but you can also swap fitness motivation tips to keep the other person on track and push yourself to try new types of exercise. It’s a win win.
- Log it
If you don’t fancy using a tracking device, apps also make you accountable – which could encourage you to do more. If you add your mates they’ll see what you’ve been up to, so you’ll definitely want to push yourself a little harder. Strava is great for running, while MyFitnessPal lets you add your workouts manually so you’ll need to keep track of time and intensity.
- Try it
Yeah, we know – it’s easier said than done – but finding a sport or exercise you genuinely love doing is the simplest way of finding the motivation to work out. Sign up for a sport league with some mates, try out a summer boot camp or give every class at the gym a go until you find something that holds your attention – yes, even the one with spin bikes.
Give these tips a go and don’t forget to check out our range of men and women’s sportswear on the site – more than worthy of showing off on a jog around your local park. Don’t forget to take some pics too and share them with us using #MySuperdry.

The season for music festivals is officially here. But with it comes the tough choice of which music event to actually nab tickets for, before you find yourself hanging out at the local pub watching Glastonbury on the telly.
We’ve rounded up the top festivals to attend this year, featuring who’s playing, the general vibe and more importantly what to wear – to ensure you nail this summer’s hottest trends while you’re there.
Feature image photo credit: @sophiehannahrichardson
What to wear to a festival
General music festivals wear includes, for the ladies:
- Waterproof shoes or boots – wellington boots are a popular choice.
- Denim shorts – ripped and frayed denim is still in, opt for a pair of comfy jean shorts.
- Cropped t-shirt – a cropped tee always looks good.
- Lightweight jackets – British evenings always get cool, so take along an embroidered denim or a leather jacket.
- Sunglasses – protect your eyes and hide how tired you really are from dancing all night.
- Bum bag – not just for your Dad on that Spanish holiday in the 90s, this will keep your phone, cards, keys and lipstick safe and always on hand.
And for the gents:
- Waterproof shoes or boots – damp socks are not ideal.
- Chino or cargo shorts – featuring plenty of pockets for valuables.
- Band t-shirt – be the ultimate fanboy and pack one or two of your fave band t-shirts.
- Hoodie – for when the evening turns chilly.
- Sunglasses – take a sneaky nap before the next set with these.
Now you know what to wear to a festival, here’s:
What to take to a festival
- Tent – cut costs and buy one with your mate.
- Sleeping bag – stay snug.
- Noise cancelling ear plugs – well, you’re going to need sleep at some point.
- Snacks and alcohol – for obvious reasons.
- Mobile charging pack – stay online and keep your phone charged up.
- Several carrier bags – for dirty clothes, dirty shoes, your rubbish, to sit on if the ground is wet, wear as a hat…
- Waterproof bag – a zip lock will do but they’re great for those valuables you want to keep dry.
- Extra socks – just in case your waterproof shoes don’t hold out.
- Sun cream – even with cloud cover you can still burn.
- Lots and lots of baby wipes – for a quick wash after a day/night of dancing, to remove mud and when you have to use the porta-loo. Good luck with that.
Where are the biggest artists playing?
Ed Sheeran – Everyone’s fave chart topping Brit is headlining at Glastonbury.
Craig David – The Daddy of garage is back and this year he’s headlining Sundown and performing at V Festival.
Jason Derulo – That guy who likes singing his own name is making an appearance at V Fest this year.
Busted – The boys have returned from the year 3000 and are rocking out at V Fest.
Katy Perry – Back with a bang and playing at Glastonbury.
Clean Bandit – The hottest collaborative dance artists of late will be playing at V Festival.
What’s the weather like?
Average temperatures in the UK:
While we can’t predict the weather for 2017, we can give you an idea of what recent years have witnessed for three of the biggest festivals:
Isle of Wight
One of the biggest, early festivals of the year, the Isle of Wight features classic bands and up and comers and when it comes to weather it’s usually kind.
2016: Sunny and cloudy with some light showers and temperatures of up to 23°C.
2015: Sunnies and wellies were needed with light showers and sunshine occurring.
2014: Pretty balmy, with plenty of sunshine.
Not too shabby on the island.
Taking place in June, the weather at Glastonbury has seen some extremes, so it’s safe to say you’re going to need an umbrella at some point.
2016: The festival was a ‘mud pit’ after heavy rain and a flash flood. Perfect excuse for some wrestling.
2015: The tail end of Storm Bill soaked revellers but in the end it stayed relatively dry.
2014: Heavy thunderstorms caused temporary shut downs at the festival.
So, yeah, pretty wet.
Those who rock don’t fear the rain, right?
2016: Light rain turned to heavy rain in this year – particularly on the Sunday.
2015: Rain and humidity.
2014: A bit damp but the sun did come out to play.
Hmm, bit of a washout.
Which festival should I go to?

Glastonbury and V Fest

Stuck for hen party ideas? Want to avoid the L plates and willy straws? (Okay, fine, you can take a couple of willy straws). Then here’s a round up of the best places for a hen do abroad to check the bride and her girls into, spanning across Europe and even stretching over to the US.
You’ve probably seen a fair few beauty bloggers soaking up the Mykonos sun in their Snapchat stories and to be fair, they’ve got the right idea. Plan a trip to this glam destination and come back with a tan and a full Instagram feed, after sending off the bride in style.
Flight time: 3h 50m from London airports
Wear this: Opt for a halter neck bikini top and pair this with frayed denim shorts – add heeled sandals and a clutch for those afternoon pool parties that go on into the night.
Plan a hen party activity:
Camp at Paradise Beach
Price: between €5-€8 for accommodation, €90 to reserve a table
Paradise Beach is the party hotspot, but instead of paying out hundreds to stay overnight in a room, book a camping spot to save some cash for the bars later. Head to Guapoloca beach at 10pm every day for the Body Paint party featuring UV paint and neon lights and every Saturday there’s a Toga Party – perfect for hens who want to relive their Uni days and dress up in bed sheets.
The home of great vodka and good looking bars to hop between, Krakow is climbing the charts when it comes to the hen do abroad. Cheap flights (bless you Ryanair), cheap accommodation and cheap booze are what makes Krakow one of the perfect hen party destinations.
Flight time: 2h 30 direct from London airports
Wear this: You just can’t go wrong with the classic ‘skinny jeans and a nice top’ combo for a day of exploring, with the addition of heels for the evening. Add some sashes, a veil for the bride and you’re good to go.
Plan a hen party activity:
Price: 290zł (around £60)
You’d be mad to visit Krakow and not sample some of the good stuff. Plan a trip on a vodka tasting bar crawl and enjoy taking different flavoured shots of the traditional spirit, accompanied by platters of Polish bar food. The idea is to get tipsy, not totally sloshed, so plan to move on to a club nearby once you’re done.
Ain’t no party like a Vegas party – think casinos, Elvis impersonators, bright lights, cocktails in penthouses, stealing Mike Tyson’s tiger…wait, no, don’t do that.
Flights are a little lengthy but you can get the party started with Prosecco on the plane and once you’re on that glittering strip, sitting in a tiny seat and breathing in the same processed air for hours will feel worth it.
Flight time: 10h 40 direct from London airports
Wear this: A little black dress is a good call for the evening but embrace the bikini by day, as you lounge by the pool – probably nursing a fantastic cocktail hangover.
Plan a hen party activity:
Explore the best bars and casinos
When in Vegas you need to pay a visit to a couple of the big casinos and hotels but you should also head downtown for a pub crawl, where the drinks are way cheaper – Beauty Bar is a popular spot where you can enjoy a ‘martini and a manicure’ as well as live music.
Book a place for the group on the Insanity ride, a mechanical arm that extends 64ft over the edge of the Stratosphere tower, which stands at around 900ft.
You’ll find yourself tilted into a ‘down’ position, so you get a great (aka stomach turning) view of downtown Vegas below before being spun at speeds of up to three G’s. Maybe skip breakfast that day and offer extra shots for the girls who take up the challenge.
A city that’s been revamped by creatives, Leipzig has a thriving tourist and nightlife scene now – you could check out a techno club, sip German beer, take a look around an art installation and pay a visit to its famous vegan kebab shop. (It’s open until 11pm, perfect for when you need to soak up some alcohol before moving on to the next bar.)
Flight time: 1h 30m direct from London airports
Wear this: Fit in with the artists living in the centre in an all black ensemble, chunky heels and an embroidered jacket.
Plan a hen party activity:
Row, row, row a boat
Price: €33 a day or €7.50 per hour
If you fancy a laugh, rent out some folding boats and get out on the canal. It’s a fun way of checking out the city but even funnier to watch everyone attempting to navigate the water. Pack some champers in your day bag to make things a little more interesting.
Locate the clubs
Price: varies between clubs
A major club in the city, even if you aren’t into old school techno with the pounding bass and wild dancing, Distillery will still get the party started. There’s also Täubchenthal which is relatively new with a huge dance floor, massive chandeliers and a well stocked bar. The party doesn’t even stop when you need a toilet break, with live DJs performing in the bathrooms too.
We’re not gonna lie (and the clue is kind of in the name), Iceland’s a little chilly – but there are plenty of bars offering enough spirits to warm up your insides and geothermal springs and lagoons to take a cheeky dip in.
Flight time: 3h 20m direct from London airports
Wear this: For daytime activities, athleisure is the best option, so pack your joggers and a comfy hoodie. For the evening, swap this for a jumpsuit and heels and finish off with a leather jacket.
Plan a hen party activity:
Price: 12,990 ISK (around £94)
It’s no secret that Iceland is home to stunning, wild landscapes, so push the bride out of her comfort zone with a casual hike to look for some natural hot springs to take a dip in. It’s the perfect daytime activity before hitting the bars later.
Actual conversation when the bride gets home:
‘So, what did you do on your hen party?’
‘Oh, y’know, the usual. Bathed in some rivers, jumped in a hot spring, tried to avoid developing pneumonia on the way out…’
Bar crawl in the centre
Head to the centre of Reykjavík in the evening where you’ll find all the best bars; the Lebowski Bar is a good starting point for drinks at Happy Hour and Ölstofan is great for getting close to the locals and sampling the rather extensive cocktail menu. Drinks can be a little pricey, so look for the places offering deals.
Hen party hand luggage
Only hardcore hen parties go on for more than two or three nights, therefore you should be able to get away with just packing hand luggage that you can squeeze into the overhead hold all. Here’s a hen party checklist featuring what to pack for a weekend getaway:
Tick these items off:
- Fancy dress for the first night – obligatory for every hen party.
- Day shoes – we don’t want to sound like your Mum but you do need to wear something that isn’t going to destroy your pinkie toes.
- Athleisurewear for day activities – think fitted t-shirts and shorts or capri leggings.
- Going ‘out out’ clothes – jumpsuits and dresses are easy to throw on.
- Hangover cures – paracetamol, ibuprofen; whatever gets you through the day.
- Mini toiletries – ensure each one is under 100ml, so you aren’t frisked at the airport.
Ready to double check that passport’s in date, prepare for the raised eyebrows when the airport staff spot the copious amounts of glitter in your hand luggage and start the party early at the airport? Don’t forget to look up our holiday shop before you go.Read more

Perfect for those wild festival nights and summer BBQs, a suede jacket is lightweight, the material feels amazing and it always looks good. This is why knowing how to care for one is so important.
Here’s the lowdown on how to keep your suede jacket looking like it’s just come straight off the rail:
So what is suede made from?
Good question. Suede is actually leather, but it uses the underside of the skin instead of the hard-wearing exterior used for real leather jackets. It is then rubbed to create a soft, velvet-like feel, which is why it feels so good to wear.
Suede might come from the same crop as leather but it doesn’t offer wear or tear on the same level. It’s much easier to stain and mark, so it’s a good idea to be a little cautious and protect your suede jacket before you even leave the house in it.
Sounds like effort? You couldn’t be more wrong…

How to protect your suede jacket
Protecting suede is as easy as grabbing some purpose-made, suede protecting spray and applying all over the main areas of the jacket. Focus especially on elbows, hemlines, collars and pockets that come into contact with your skin and other clothes regularly.
Look for a protecting spray that is also waterproof, because once suede gets wet that’s when it starts picking up dirt and stains. Spritz it on, leave it to dry and then you’re good to go.
Dyes from denim jeans and other materials can easily transfer onto suede fabric, so remember this when out and about. If you’re not up for regular cleaning, go for a darker suede shade that won’t show everything up.
The spray should do the job, but we recommend playing it a little safe. It’s also a good idea to bear in mind that you may need to clean your jacket every once in a while, especially if it comes into contact with dirt and spills. Here’s a little guide on how to clean your suede jacket properly:
How to clean a suede jacket
Before we begin, we must emphasize that it’s never advisable to machine wash suede. Suede does not fare well in the machine, even on a cold wash. It’s an investment piece you need to treat with love.
Instead, get your jacket booked in for a spruce up at a reputable dry cleaner for an all over clean. It might be more expensive, but it’s worth it to get your suede jacket looking like new.
If you’re just getting rid of a small stain or mark you can use a suede brush – pick one of these up in the supermarket next time you’re popping in.
TOP TIP: When choosing a suede brush remember – the longer the suede, the softer the brush needs to be. This ensures you don’t damage the material with the wrong ‘strength’ brush, which can cause damage and even tear in the material.
Leave the stain to dry and then get to work gently brushing it out – the brush loosens up the dirt and removes it.
Don’t forget to respray the brushed area with suede protector to avoid having to re scrub it in the near future.
Three ways to style a suede jacket
Keeping your jacket clean and maintaining the quality is always in style. Here are a few style ideas to try out mix up your look:
- Ladies – Pair a tan suede jacket (preferably with plenty of tassels) with denim shorts, a band tee and some comfy knee high wellies. Don’t forget the glitter face paint.
- Men – Dark chino shorts work well with a suede jacket. Add a plain fitted t-shirt and ankle boots to wade through the mud and you’re good to go.
- Ladies – Traveling over the summer months? Introduce your suede jacket to the athleisure trend (read up on our top tips on this trend here) and wear it over comfy joggers and a thin jumper with your fave trainers.
- Men – Throw your suede jacket over a matching hooded tracksuit, pull the hood out to add a little edge to the look.
Saturday night fever:
- Ladies – Going out out? Then a darker coloured suede jacket is the perfect addition to your LBD and heels ensemble.
- Men – Suede and a crisp white shirt? You’re going to stand out on Saturday night. Pair with dark coloured jeans and leather trainers and prop up the bar in style.
Feeling confident? Then don’t hesitate to add a suede jacket to your wardrobe and find any excuse to wear it. If you’re yet to grab one, check out our men and women’s jackets ranges here on the site to find your new fave piece of outerwear.

In 2017, we’re going to witness the most stylish influencers introducing edgy Americana vibes into their everyday looks, the type of style that wouldn’t look out of place at the hottest summer festivals such as Coachella. If you’re looking to replicate this, then a classic denim jacket is the perfect piece of outerwear to help you nail this trend.
Whether you fancy doubling up on denim like Kanye, rocking an oversized jacket like The Weeknd or being smart like Idris Elba and wearing it like a shirt, there’s really no wrong way to embrace the look.
If you’re still unsure as to how to wear a denim jacket then don’t worry, we’ve broken it down in this quick guide. Check out our jackets available here on the site, then feature yours in your look, following the tips below for some serious style points:
How should a denim jacket fit?
True denim doesn’t give much, in terms of fit and stretch, so the jacket you choose now needs to fit well. We recommend grabbing two – one in a slimmer fit for a smart look and an oversized one for a more off duty style.
Here’s what to pair with those jackets:
Wear the trousers
When it comes to choosing what trousers to wear with a denim jacket, you’ve got plenty of options:
Double denim is a trend that doesn’t give up, so embrace it. However, it’s best to avoid doubling up on the same shade. Instead, we recommend you always look for slim fit jeans that are a darker colour than the denim jacket you’re looking to style up – if in doubt, you can’t go wrong with black.
Comfy, stylish and easy to wear, you probably have a few of these hanging in your wardrobe right now and a khaki or tan pair work well with denim. Opt for the well-fitting denim jacket and pair this with chinos, canvas trainers and a plain white t-shirt for casual, everyday vibes.
Jean shorts are perfect for the spring months as the weather turns a little warmer – whether you’re just hanging out in the beer garden or heading out on an impromptu bike ride. Choose a pair that sit at knee length, great for teaming with your oversized denim jacket.
Layer it up
What you wear under that jean jacket sets the vibe for your whole outfit, so here are a few options:
- Cable knit jumper
Leave the parka coat behind, now that spring has arrived, and instead grab a chunky cable knit jumper to wear under your oversized denim jacket on cooler days. Mixing textures adds a little interest to your look, and a cosy jumper makes you look approachable when chatting to that cute barista in your favourite coffee shop at the weekend. Finish off with slim fit jeans, suede desert boots and an oversized scarf.
The plaid shirt is considered a staple wardrobe piece now, so don’t throw yours out anytime soon. We recommend a red plaid shirt for this look, worn under your fave oversized denim jacket, then roll the sleeves back but let them peek out from under the denim. Finish with some darker colour, slim fit jeans and a pair of leather look trainers.
- Plain white T
You can’t go wrong with a basic t-shirt and here we’re talking about that plain white t-shirt you probably have ten or more versions of. Slip one of these under your oversized denim jacket, then rock with black jeans, tan ankle boots and you’re ready for whatever the day can throw at you.
Need that little additional something to finish off your look? Sprinkle some of these extras on:
- Beanie hat
You can’t go wrong with a simple, knitted beanie hat – throw one on when you leave the house to finish off your denim look.
Not only is this accessory mega practical, it’s a great way of completing a casual look. Wear yours slung over one shoulder – this looks great with the jean shorts and white t-shirt combo. Don’t forget to check out our range of stylish bags here.
A pair of good looking shades work with any look, but pairs yours with a denim jacket and you’ll instantly create a laidback, nonchalant vibe. You can’t go wrong with wayfarer styles but aviators also look great with everything.

Bomber jackets – they are the perfect transitional piece. We love adding them to glam up a casual look or to give a night look a more casual edge.
Inspired by sportswear and the popular sports luxe trend we’ve witnessed in 2016, bombers are the ultimate casual jacket worn by celebs running errands and by influential fashion bloggers to high profile events. If you’ve been wondering how best to style up a bomber jacket of your own then here’s a quick how to guide – and if you don’t yet have one be sure to check out our range:
Oversized with rolled up sleeves
Currently trending in Japan, wearing one oversized garment adds an instant edge to your look. Our favourite it girls are donning jackets in dramatic lengths with extra-long plain t-shirts. Capture the trend by wearing your bomber jacket oversized and simply rolling the sleeves up. Or slip over a feminine, fitted dress and finish off with a pair of high top trainers. It’s the look for those of us that never grew out of our inner tomboy.
Which bomber is best?
Our SDR Lite Pilot Jacket has a slightly masculine vibe, perfect for the oversized trend. The detachable fur collar adds some extra volume.
Grunge is back, 90s kids. So mess your hair up ala Courtney love and embrace your grunge roots with a khaki bomber, worn open over your favourite band tee, ripped jeans and finished off with a thin, flannel shirt tied around your waist. Don’t forget the eyeliner.
Which bomber is best?
The SD-1 Bomber Jacket is a good choice when it comes to recreating this look. Turn it’s airforce styling on its head by playing into the rocker look. The multiple zips and pockets included in the design add a little edge – plus what girl doesn’t want more pockets for all her essentials?
Going ‘out out’
Velvet has resurfaced this season, and we’re loving it. A velvet bomber is the perfect addition to a sleek dress or black jeans and a top. The velvet adds a mix of textures to create an outfit that’s sure to turn heads.
Which bomber is best?
We’re mad about this Bella Bomber Jacket. It’s great for draping over your favourite party dress and keeping you cosy when waiting for a taxi after a great night out. The additional small pocket on the arm is ideal for keeping travel cards or money close by and easily accessible – so it’s practical and pretty!
Bomber jackets are perfect for making a casual statement in the workplace and for dashing around on the tube for client meetings. Pair yours with some slim trousers and a sleeveless blouse and finish off with a pair of killer heels.
Which bomber is best?
You need something that’s going to look good in and out of the office. Our Beach Micro Jersey Bomber Jacket works well as a blazer and as a piece of outerwear. The light colour works with your favourite pencil skirt and blouse combo and its relaxed fit means it can see you through to the weekend too.
For many of us, fashion bloggers are our main source of inspiration when it comes to styling up our wardrobe. A suede bomber is the perfect way of replicating the looks seen on Instagram. Pair this with a denim mini skirt and a striped Breton t-shirt for instant, blogger worthy style.
Which bomber is best?
The Captain Coach Jacket is definitely Instaworthy. Great for being snapped in front of some street art with a coffee in hand, this jacket is what every fashion icon should have in her wardrobe.
Nothing beats a classic jeans and t-shirt combo for casual weekend style. With a cute bomber jacket slipped on over the top, you’ll nail that laidback look. If you don’t fancy something heavy, opt for a bomber jacket featuring lace or mesh sleeves and a lightweight material for the body, then wear it like a cardigan over your favourite pair of blue skinnies and a comfy t-shirt. Finish off with your favourite heeled ankle boots.
Which bomber is best?
Our Dust Quilt Bomber Jacket works great for this look, the dusty ink colour and quilted detail make this an attractive lightweight jacket that can be worn most days. It’s a great transition piece and works great as a jacket to wear indoors or to add a layer in warmer months.

From Kanye West to Sergio Ramos, bomber jackets are everywhere. They have a timeless appeal but still give off an effortlessly cool vibe. And one that can be transformed to reflect many styles.
It’s a perfect transitional layer for those surprising warmer winter days but also functions as a layer to wear to work or at the pub with your mates.
If you’ve been considering trying the look, check out this quick guide on how to style one from our Superdry jackets range. We’ve got plenty of choice in terms of shapes and textures, so you can choose the one that’s right for you.
Look One: Smart for work and everything in-between
Our Moody Night Flight Lite Bomber Jacket is the ideal choice if you’re looking to create a smart casual look. This jacket’s material is lightweight and comfortable, ideal for overlaying a basic tee, which can be paired with blue jeans. You could even team it up with a slim fit cardigan if you’re braving the cold. The black colour is a perfect match with some high tops to nail that All-American vibe.
Look Two: Road ready
Whether you want to ‘out-dress’ your fellow students in that 10am lecture or you’re leading a group presentation you’re majorly underprepared for and need to dress to impress, you know a leather jacket is a great choice when you want to make an impression. Our Ultra Lite Slim Leather Jacket is stylish, offers a structured fit and adds a laidback edge to any look. Pair with an over-the-shoulder bag, fitted black jeans and suede boots for a smooth yet edgy style.
Look Three: Drinks with the lads
Heading down the pub on a Friday night for a catch up with your mates? If you’ve hit the gym beforehand be sure to take along one of our Rookie Duty Bomber Jacket. Not only does it look good – but it’s the perfect transitional jacket to help you ease into the new season.
Alternatively, if you don’t mind the banter and are looking for something a little bolder, a printed bomber is a great choice. Camo is still in this season, but don’t expect to see too many green and brown colour schemes, instead grey and black camo prints is a great look for bomber jackets. Pair yours with a collared polo shirt, fitted jeans and a pair of comfy trainers for the ultimate athleisure style.
Look Four: Footie on a Saturday
Headed to watch your favourite team? Want a jacket that is a bit sporty and can be thrown on over your team shirt? Our Applique Bomber Jacket is the outerwear for the job. As we ease into the new season, its lightweight design and ribbed cuffs make it a great layer for a bit of extra warmth without being a burden. It’s also ideal for when you head down to the bar later to celebrate or grieve your team’s result.
Look Five: Date night
Date night calls for a jacket that meets that blurred line between smart and casual. You want a plain bomber jacket that works with one of the many comfy but on point tees in your wardrobe. One of our Moody Nite Flite Lite Jacket in navy is a good starting point. Alternatively, for a stronger look, a bomber jacket featuring more of a spring is a great choice – especially if you choose yours in a standout navy.
Style up your bomber using one of the looks above for inspiration and we guarantee you’ll be looking good all season.

Have you ever looked longingly at your gym leggings or that comfy hoody and just wished it was acceptable wear them on a brunch date with your mates? Well, we love a stretchy waistline too, so no judgement from us, and we’re here to you tell it’s totally fine.
The athleisure trend has really been gaining popularity since 2016, mixing casual on trend pieces with traditional sportswear to create looks the likes of Gigi and Kayne would be proud of. It’s perfect for travelling, for casual days out or just lounging around the house. If you’re brave enough, you could even rock your yoga leggings at work.
Still unsure? When it comes to perfecting the look, in 2017, it’s all about the outerwear you choose. Here are a few ways to include those staple jacket pieces and nail the athleisure trend:

We’re sure you have a leather jacket hanging around somewhere – if not, we have a huge range of jackets right here on the site to choose from – and this is the perfect addition to the look.
How to wear it:
- Guys – Straight leg jeans and a fitted t-shirt always look great under a leather jacket, but with a slim fit hoodie worn underneath (with the hood pulled out) you’re going to be nailing that athleisure trend. Jackets with hoods are always a good call.
- Girls – Yoga leggings and a cami top are great for creating that casual, sport luxe trend you see on high flying fashion bloggers, while they’re being papped in the street – pull on some sporty hi-tops and finish off by draping your favourite leather jacket over your shoulders.

Bold in a bomber
Bomber jackets alone are synonymous with the athleisure trend and the sporty vibe it creates. They remind us not only of high flying aviators but also track athletes and the cool Jock in that American high school movie – making them the perfect addition to this sporty look.
How to wear it:
- Guys – Let your bomber jacket do the talking, wear it open and undone with a pullover jumper for that gym hall vibe and pair with comfy chinos and white trainers to finish.
- Girls – Skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple many of us wear near everyday, so team yours with a cropped slogan tee and wear these under your bomber jacket. A sports rucksack, slung over one shoulder and bright coloured fashion trainers will complete the look. Consider your hair too, a high ponytail suggests that you’re ready for for the gym at all times.

A daring duster
Duster coats and military jackets are the perfect mix of smart and casual, with longer length styles that make an impact when you walk in the room – perfect for introducing to your athleisure look.
How to wear it:
- Guys – Military jackets are great for pairing with sporty pieces – aka your gym kit – if you’re just heading down out for a day around town or travelling somewhere new. Wears yours over a comfy t-shirt and some plain slim fit joggers (darker colours are best) then finish off with some good looking fashion trainers.
- Girls – We reckon there’s a camel duster coat hanging in every fashion lover’s wardrobe, so be sure to pair yours with a cropped tee, some luxe joggers – yep, such a thing exists – and a pair of running shoes.

Puffer jackets are hot when it comes to outerwear right now and great for featuring in your athleisure trend look, as they remind us of hiking and the great outdoors and we recommend you pair yours with a matching tracksuit. While a full on tracksuit might not sound all that appealing outside the gym, trust us on this. Choose a lighter colour – such as marl grey or even white – but avoid a hooded jumper.
How to wear it:
- Guys – Perfect for airport runs and coffee dates in the winter, wear your tracksuit under a bright coloured puffer jacket and finish off with a comfy beanie.
- Girls – Joggers with cuffed ankles are great for maximising comfort but also keep the ensemble form fitting and flattering for the ladies. Wear yours with your puffer jacket worn open and finish with canvas trainers and a leather shoulder bag.

The finishing touch
Baseball caps scream sporty and are regularly worn by those fashionable celebs, adopting the athleisure trend – or just to shield their faces from the cameras. Include one in your everyday look to add a hint of this sporty vibe.
How to wear it:
- Guys – For a contrasting look, wear a preppy long sleeved shirt with straight leg jeans and white trainers then pair these with a baseball hat to work the athleisure trend into your outfit.
- Girls – A pinafore dress, worn over a roll neck jumper and paired with sports socks and trainers creates a look worthy of the trend, top off with a baseball cap and you’re nailing it.
