I’ve been on a hunt for a bomber jacket for a while. It’s one of those enduring styles that don’t really go out of favor and are cross-seasonal. I’ve always loved the casual collegiate varsity look of this piece. Thick, cotton varsity ones were all over social media and blogs last year, but this year, it’s all about satin and silk bombers. I didn’t quite take a liking to the popular silky bombers with over-embroidered dragons and tigers on them. Finally, I found my perfect bomber with a tasteful amount of design – note the random yet trending motifs of cacti, rainbow, and flowers. 🙂 At checkout, the saleswoman told me how lucky I was to get my hands on it because they are apparently selling like hot cakes.
I did some research on the jacket after I bought it, and Bella Hadid wore this in blue! I guess after a well-known celebrity wears a piece that is actually available on the market and not custom-made by an haute couture designer, everyone is racing to get it. If any of you like this jacket, hurry before they sell out! I tagged it down below 🙂
Bomber jackets always look best with cropped tops or bralettes underneath; longer tops tend to make the overall look sloppy. So keep it fresh and streamlined with a shorter length top. You can opt for ripped denim shorts on the bottom, but I went for a classic A-line denim skirt. To add to the youthfulness of this outfit, I wore cherry embellished socks to pop out from my white trainers. Graphic socks are in and you can get them at Forever 21 and Topshop, so check out those stores!
