Once major in the 90s, bomber jackets have made a big resurgence on the Fall trend list this year (I mentioned my new-found love for them here). Whether they’re rocking denim or a slip dress, everyone is determined to top it off with a stylish bomber. Unsure of how to style it? Check out all the sweet ways the “Cool Kids” incorporate bombers into their outfits.
A classic black satin bomber was made for a cute + casual outfit; swap out your denim jacket go-to for this slicker, alternative piece.
Skip the tried and true leather moto jacket and top your all black everything look with a quilted jacket. It gives the same effect (edge, edge, edge!) but it’s not as heavy as leather and is a touch more playful.
Varsity Squad! Forgo a cardigan + leave the sweetness at home by swapping it out with for a varsity bomber with your dresses. It doesn’t have to be matchy-matchy: just find a comparable color palette to pair together so that it doesn’t clash but will still give your look a bit of edge. You can be a fashion darling like Olivia Palermo and rock it with silky shorts and tights. It’s a fresh take on a classic look that anyone can recreate.
With 90s fashion being so on-trend right now, a slip dress + bomber ensemble is a total ode to Drew Barrymore (don’t forget the choker!) It’s a prime example of how to wear a trend while still looking modern.
Those that love a more minimalist look can go tone on tone with their bomber while playing with texture like Molly Rustas. It’s a super clean, easy look, so you can keep it that way with small, delicate jewelry or throw in a few statement pieces if you must.
When all else fails, a bomber jacket will serve as your statement piece when getting dressed. Keep it “basic” with a simple slip dress, or, add strappy heels or a funky necklace for a more eclectic vibe.
