You all know of my love for a relaxed, kinda sporty outfit finished off with a pair of white kicks. Right? Well, I’m one happy chick because the bomber jacket is back baby! Yes, I’ve lived through the bomber jacket trend (a couple of times) but I’m thrilled to see them shining again. Even better I’m thrilled to see them in larger sizes. YAY!
The bomber jacket hails from the fighter pilot jackets, traditionally leather it has a ribbed cuff on the waist and wrists, no collar, and a zippered front closure. My high school jacket was a mix of American baseball and bomber jacket but nowhere near as cute as what’s available instore and online right now.
I consider a bomber jacket the ‘off duty blazer’. They are lightweight (perfect for layering), and can be worn all year long.
Wear your bomber jacket cropped, just on the hip or a little longer, I need mine around hip length, any longer and it boxes me in. Right now we are spoiled for choice with colour and print, a printed bomber jacket is all kinds of F.U.N!
Some tips for wearing your bomber jacket…
Team your bomber jacket with…
–a stretch tube skirt, sneakers, neck scarf and bright lips (50’s style)
–skinny leg jeans, tee and heels (pretty/gritty)
–boyfriend jeans, sneakers, shirt and statement necklace. (Casual street style)
–over a lightweight knit or hoodie (weekend sport style)
–cropped with high waisted skirt or pants.
A luxe fabric bomber has the perfect balance of slick and sophistication, and will elevate your outfit in the style stakes. Try teaming luxe fabrics with denim or leather for a pretty/gritty look.
Right now I’m crushing on the patterned bomber, they are the perfect piece to lift a plainer outfit or have some fun and team with print for some pattern clashing. I’m still hunting for the perfect one for me, if you find one you love let me know.
