We are now in the thick of ‘jacket weather’ and if your style is a little laid-back (like mine) then you might be eyeing off a bomber jacket. Babes, are you also wondering how to wear the bomber jacket?
Well, I have got you covered with some tips PLUS where to find some awesome bomber jackets. I consider a bomber jacket the ‘off duty blazer’, perfect for kicking back on weekends but don’t be afraid to wear them with a fancy shmancy ensemble for that perfect style juxtaposition.
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!
Tips for wearing a 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, look for a leather look bomber for extra street cred (pretty/gritty)
– boyfriend jeans, sneakers, shirt and statement necklace. (casual street style)
– layered over a lightweight knit or hoodie (weekend sport style)
– cropped with high waisted skirt or pants.
A luxe fabric bomber 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 simple outfit or have some fun with print clashing…just remember to have at least one colour in common connecting both prints.
Let’s not forget texture when it comes to the bomber jacket, velour, velvet, embroidery, mesh and faux fur are all fashion forward and super fun too.
Right, let’s take a look at a stack of my recent bomber jacket finds….
