How to wear a bomber jacket, The Atomics way
We’ve teamed up with the coolest family band since The Jackson 5 to find out what they’re wearing this week.
H&M STYLE DIARIES PART II.
As summer winds down, our desire to put on one (or many) layers of clothing arrives. We asked our new friends – the four siblings in The Atomics – to pick and style their favourite looks from H&M Divided, with the classic bomber jacket in focus.
Tomorrow, 19 August, the LA-based brothers and sisters head east, to their hometown Spanish Fork in Utah, where they are playing their first shows on their upcoming tour. Before they hit the road, Starlie, Daisy, Pyper and Lucky met up with photographer Nate Hoffmann in Los Angeles for this week’s H&M Style diaries shoot. We got some time to chat with them too.

• Starlie is 22, lead singer in The Atomics and lives in Los Angeles
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING TODAY?
“I am wearing an amazing black bomber that not only looks great, but is so comfortable. I paired it with a fun cartoon sushi shirt for a more playful look.”
DO YOU PREFER EATING SUSHI – OR JUST HAVING IT PRINTED ON YOUR T-SHIRT?
“Oh my gosh, I LOVE sushi! It's one of my favourite foods, I always want sushi on my birthday and every kind of celebration. Honestly though, I don't think there's anything cuter than cartoon sushi.”
ON ANOTHER TOPIC: YOU’RE PLAYING YOUR FIRST SHOW TOMORROW. NERVOUS?
“I am extremely excited! I never get nervous about performing because I feel like the stage is my home. I will say that I am anxious to see how everyone reacts to our new music! I couldn't be happier to be performing our new songs on stage with my siblings!”
• Daisy is 20, a model and the lead guitarist in The Atomics. She lives in Los Angeles
TELL US ABOUT TODAY’S LOOK!
“Today I am wearing some overalls, a graphic tee, and a bomber. I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of overalls, and today I am finally wearing some!”
WE ASKED YOU TO FOCUS ON THE BOMBER JACKET. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE STYLE JACKET?
“I do love a bomber. They are so easy to wear and take your outfit to the next level. Between bombers and leather jackets, I don't need anything else.”
DO THE ATOMICS HAVE A STAGE STYLE?
“The Atomics do have a stage style! We are revamping it from what it was before, and we are incorporating a lot more of our personal style into it. Whatever we wear on stage is going to be something we would wear off stage, but with an extra edge to it.”
• Pyper is 19, she models and plays the bass in The Atomics. She lives in Los Angeles.
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING TODAY?
“I am wearing an army green bomber jacket with different cool patches. I’m also wearing some black-washed skinny jeans and a black crop top.”
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR LOOK?
“I love how the trousers and top are simple. The jacket is my statement piece! I have a collection of bomber jackets – it’s my favourite style!”
WHY IS FASHION IMPORTANT TO YOU?
“Fashion is important to me because it’s such a prominent and visual way to express yourself. I love exploring different styles and experimenting with my look.”
HOW ARE YOU PREPARING FOR YOUR UPCOMING SHOWS?
“My siblings and I are in rehearsal every day! We are constantly thinking about how we want to perform and what we want to look like on stage. We are really excited to get out there and play shows!”
• Lucky is 18 and one of the world’s most successful male models. He plays the drums in The Atomics and lives in Los Angeles.
TELL US ABOUT THE OUTFIT YOU’RE WEARING TODAY!
“I’m wearing some good blue denims with a cool red flannel shirt. To make the whole outfit clean, I finished it with white shoes. It gives it a summer beach or camp vibe.”
WHAT'S YOUR BEST STYLE ADVICE FOR GUYS?
“My best advice for guys is to keep it simple, classic, and cool.”
YOU’RE GOING BACK TO YOUR HOMETOWN TOMORROW. DOES SPANISH FORK STILL FEEL LIKE HOME?
“No, not really. I live in Los Angeles now, and it’s where I feel completely at home. But I do love going back to visit my friends in Spanish Fork.”
Every third week Starlie, Daisy, Pyper and Lucky give us an update on where they are, what they’re doing and what look from H&M Divided they’ve chosen to wear this particular day. Check out the hashtag #HMStyleDiaries on Instagram and Twitter for more good stuff.
