For a few seasons now, I’ve seen the bomber jacket maintain its status as one of the most versatile and covetable trends, unshaken by the ever-changing nature of the fashion industry. From bloggers and editors to models and It girls, everyone has hopped on board at one point or another. So how best to integrate this iconic piece into your wardrobe? Read ahead for some suggestions…
The bomber jacket was originally created for pilots. This garment moved into pop culture during the 1970’s and this winter the bomber jacket is back. Whether worn super-oversized with arms rolled up or shrunken ’90s-style, these guys work just as well with a slinky dress as they do with a pair of shredded jeans—and they’re also really, really comfortable which is always a win.
Choosing a jacket of a different material will instantly add a touch of class to any outfit. Throw on a black silk bomber over your favorite party dress and pair with some black heeled pumps, and you’ve got the perfect look for a night out. Here I paired this black number with a pair of patent Mary Janes and a pleated metallic green skirt creating a totally badass look which I love!
Personally, I suggest sourcing a great vintage find (in a shade like rose gold or blue satin) to pair with your newer pieces. In fact, the bomber jacket tends to look best when it’s a little worn in, and not too perfect.
Easy to layer over various outfits, bomber jackets are the perfect wardrobe staple going into fall. And did I mention they’re super comfy too and they’re available pretty much anywhere, at every price. For a no-fuss fall fashion look, style your bomber jacket with skinny jeans. Add a simple but luxurious knit, and you’ve got that “off-duty model” look nailed.
Traditionally bomber jackets may have been limited to casual wear, but this season street wear and high fashion have well and truly collided. I’ve spotted some gorgeous silk and embroidered designs that wouldn’t look out of place at the hottest parties.
With such a versatile item of clothing, there really are no fashion rules. Be brave and experiment – confidence and attitude are really all you need to rock this look. Let me know what worked for you!
