Tomorrow is October 1st, and I am so ready for cozy sweaters and jackets. But the weather in LA just doesn’t want to cooperate; it is warm out here! So for another week I am holding off bringing my knits and suede out, and wearing my summer tees and lightweight jackets. And since this year’ has been the year of bomber jackets, I often reach for my Zara silk bomber jacket (a steal for $29!).
If you are still skeptical that about bomber jackets’ military fighter pilot origins and think that they’re not for you, I’m telling you, I felt the same way. But after a couple tries I started to feel how edgy and relaxed and sexy the look can be. Bomber jackets look great paired with a pencil skirt, dress pants, or jeans. Last time I paired my bomber jacket with dress pants as great Friday work outfit. This time I went for a simple jeans and t-shirt look. I feel that this jacket adds that effortless chic touch to the look, great for running errands and weekend hangouts.
This jacket is sold out unfortunately, but there is no shortage of great designs. A few of my favorite bomber jackets (from light to heavy, depending on where you are and the weather) are here (Zara Embroidered Reversible bomber jacket $99), here (Zara Crepe bomber jacket $49), and here (BB Dakota Atwood Satin bomber jacket $109).
Do you wear bomber jackets? How do you style them?
