At My Fashion Life, we love mixing fashion price tags and teaming our saved-up-for stylish pieces with our snap-up high street finds.

And what better way to sport one of this season’s most versatile looks than on a sweet budget? This week, we’re digging the soft seamed bomber jacket from Topshop, costing a not-such-a-fortune £42 and ticking all the spring/summer 2012 trend boxes.

Thanks to London Olympics 2012 fever, sporty apparel made a splash on the runway, from laser-cut mesh bombers at Alexander Wang to luxe-athletic detailing at Victoria Beckham. The bomber jacket has made a serious comeback this season, and refreshed from its scooter boy 80s appeal, we’ve picked it up in soft stone, ready to pair with other key new season pieces.

We’ve picked out our top three bomber jacket styling tips straight off the catwalk, ready for you to replicate with your Topshop version in front of the bedroom mirror. In 3, 2, 1, Go!
