If you have seen me out recently or most of my videos on Instagram then you would have noticed that I literally LIVE in this bomber jacket. There’s such a ‘keeping it real’ vibe associated with a girl that wears a bomber jacket that I can’t quite explain. Any girl that owns a bomber jacket will wear it until its end.
I would say that I have latched onto this trend more than anything else because the ath-leisure trend has been making its way into my everyday wardrobe and it’s just so darn effortless and what better way to ease into a popular trend than by getting your very own bomber jacket? It’s not hard not find and depending on what you are willing to spend, there is literally a bomber for everyone. It’s incredibly versatile, especially when you are on the go and running errands and not to mention SUPER stylish. If you’re looking to inject some attitude and charm to your look all at once then this is the essential piece for you.
If you’re thinking that this look is a bit too masculine for you then there are bombers in lighter shades and slightly more feminine.

Bomber jackets don’t have to limited to just being casual wear but can easily make an appearance on those special nights out. For example, one could wear a body-con dress, heels and a bomber jacket or skinny jeans, heels, a fitted top and a bomber jacket. The trick is to keep everything else fitted, especially if your bomber jacket is a bit loose. Also, if you choose a bomber jacket with a different material such as satin, it will instantly elevate your look to be more classy and chic. It’s all about what makes you feel sexy and confident at the end of the day so DO YOU BOO! This piece is so versatile that there aren’t really any rules when wearing a bomber. You are allowed to experiment and be brave because you really can’t go wrong.
About this Look:
I decided to go for a more casual street-style look because it’s what I feel most comfortable in and lately I’ve been loving the laid-back look. As a fashion blogger, you forget that you are allowed to be laid-back in your blog posts, you don’t have to be dressed to the nines 24/7. You can feel equally as cool by just wearing something simple. I paired the olive green bomber with white jeans and a white jersey because I wanted to accentuate the jacket as much as I could and not take away from it. I feel this is the perfect ‘college-girl’ look or for the girl on the run that still wants to remain fashionable. I added a playful touch by wearing my blue sneakers from Topshop. I didn’t really feel like being too matchy so I decided to add a playful pop of colour especially since the jacket itself is quite playful.
