Step aside letterman jackets – the bomber jacket has taken over as it has gradually made its way to campus, transforming the good ole lettermen’s jacket into modern sophistication with golden zippers, shiny fabrics, and slimming cuts.
As we know, this season has been terribly difficult to dress for with days ranging from the high 70’s to the lows of 20 degrees . . . where does one even begin to dress for days like that. The conclusion? Bomber jackets; transitional pieces guaranteed to give you just the right amount of coverage and style to stay chic and warm this season without the bulk of a winter jacket.
The range of options for wearing bomber jackets is expansive. From a basic tee and leggings to a pair of skinnies and a schnazy top, bomber jackets can be worn in any way you please.
My go-to look for wearing bomber jackets is as shown (sneakers, skinnies, crop top, simple statement necklace, and jacket) – a casual and simple look that’s perfect for a day out and about.
Trends 101: Fashion Sneakers are SO in and are a trend I’ve grown to love as I’ve replaced outfits I’d normally wear heels with for my adidas sneakers (bought on amazon for $38, a style-steal!) adding comfort to some of my favorite go-to styles.
Another popular option for wearing the bomber jacket trend is edgy, modern, and well put together pairing skinnies, a loose fitting top, heels and either a large blanket scarf or statement necklace. This look can take you anywhere from dinner to a night on the town.
Looking to find your own perfectly fitting bomber jacket? Local boutiques such as Urban Violet, Primp, and Kittsona, are well stocked on the trend with several options to chose from.
Style Tip: Although there are several colors, prints and patterns to chose from; opt for a bomber jacket that is more neutral to get the most use out of the piece – such as solid black, olive green, tan, or grey.
