A great jacket can take you far during the transition season. I picked this shiny silver one up last fall when I was on Mom Boss Book tour in Denver. I spotted it in Francesca’s and loved it–very disco chic. This week, I decided to talk about styling a bomber jacket
Well, Francesca’s sold out of this one long ago, but they do have other well-priced options in the bomber style. If your heart is set on silver, I found a few places to refer you. ASOS has this one and there’s one more I found at Macy’s that looks really similar to the one I’m styling here.
When it comes to trends, this one probably won’t be around for too many years. I bought this jacket for less than $50–and I highly recommend you stick in the same price range. Once you see the trend dying out, you can pass it along to a thrift store and someone will nab it for a 50’s costume!
Styling a Bomber Jacket
For now, styling it is pretty easy. I see lots of women pairing a bomber with jeans and athletic shoes. That works for sure. For something a bit more sophisticated try this:
- Opt for a slight heel. A bootie will do nicely. I’m loving the new Leila Bootie from TOMS.
- Since the jacket is baggy, keep it slim on the bottom.
- When you are first experimenting with this, try a monochromatic palette underneath.
- Keep the accessories up by the ears or on your wrist. I’m wearing a pair from cabi.
- Skip the scarf. I tried one but it looked too fussy.
I opted to wear all black under the jacket. Let’s be honest, the jacket brings a whole lot of fashion to the outfit. I didn’t have to try to hard with everything else. On the bottom, I wanted a nice sleek line. I’m wearing the cabi clothing Pencil Trouser. It sits high on the waist and has a side zip. It’s almost tight enough to be a legging, but has the structure of a pant. It’s great for travel. A sleek and skinny high-rise fit with comfortable stretch fabric that fits like a dream, the Pencil Trouser has a wide elastic panel at the waist for a streamlined silhouette
Under the jacket, I’m wearing the cabi clothing Indulgence Top. It’s a 3/4 sleeve black top with “floaty layers”–it’s just body-conscious enough to work under the jacket. That’s about it. Two black staples underneath and I let the bomber jacket take the spotlight.
