At just over halfway through the year, the fur bomber jacket might not seem like the most seasonal of items: but then, let’s face it, the weather hasn’t been either! For the time being, it can be a great and potentially live-saving warm cover up for a summer dress on a cooler-than-expected night…with the advantage of being able to see you through autumn and even the winter months. With that in mind, we’ve picked out our favourite faux fur bomber jackets.
Green Bomber Jacket In Faux Fur With Metallic Stripe Rib – £45 (was £75), ASOS Collection
If you want your fur to be clearly faux (and we definitely fall into that category), then green is the colour for you! We love the vibrant bottle green of this faux fur bomber jacket from ASOS Collection. The fully-lined jacket is made from a soft-touch fabric and has functional pockets as well as metallic-finish ribbed trims. Fastening up the front with a zip, this fabulous find is currently available with a thirty quid reduction, so act now if you want this one!
Long Sleeve Faux Fur Bomber Jacket – £50 (was £109), Bardot
The fluffy, almost feather-like finish on the Bardot long sleeve faux fur bomber jacket gives it a real feminine touch, as does the cropped shape. This fawn-coloured number has black ribbing on the hem, neckline and cuffs, and is another great sale find: it’s currently available in a limited number of sizes at less than half price, so act now and get your hands on a beautiful yet practical garment.
Faux Fur Bomber Jacket – £695, Helmut Lang
At the designer end of the spectrum we have this black faux fur bomber jacket from Helmut Lang. In classic style, the jacket has an elasticated hem band and cuffs, but has a hood to the rear. It’s made from 100% cupro – a regenerated cellulose fibre resulting from a chemical process that uses the fibres that stick to the seeds of the cotton plant – and has a super-soft, velvety feel.
Boutique Evie Teddy Fur Bomber Jacket – £14 (was £40), Boohoo.com
We really did have second thoughts about this one. I mean – teddy fur? Can that be ethical? After some soul searching, we decided that since teddy bears aren’t an endangered species (and also that they’re not real) then we can all wear this Boutique Evie teddy fur bomber jacket with a clear conscience. It’s also available in a nude colour, as well as in this lovely (frankly teddy-coloured) brown, and both have been reduced handsomely.
Stone Coloured Faux Fur Bomber Jacket – £14.99 (was £34.99), Select
We finish with another number that has a distinct feel of teddy bear about it! Select’s fur bomber jacket would look just as good over a pretty dress as it will with skinny jeans, and it’ll keep you warm too. With elasticated bands at the hem and cuffs, and pocket detailing at the front, this cute jacket is also available in black – and both are currently selling out fast in the sale at a remarkable £14.99 each!
