How To Wear Bomber Jackets Sans Jeans

bomber jackets

You get your bomber jacket and the first thing most wear them with is jeans.  Heck it’s the first thing I think of, but I found two alternatives in two very different styles to wear them instead.  Two ways with trousers.  Two ways with skirts.

. . .

Ok so the trousers are next level but the point is made: black and navy works and loose fitting black trousers are killer with satin navy bombers.  I took this photo last year but I feel like her look is still laid back badass.  3.1 Phillip Lim does a side slit trouser.  Try navy bombers from Asos men’s (for slouch) or Boohoo.   I found similar slide sandals from Loeffler Randall.

Margaret Zhang’s wide leg trousers feel chic with block heel sandals, but the varsity bomber jacket makes it casual.  I love Diesel’s men’s bomber jacket (on sale).   Shorten a fluid pair of wide leg trousers like Alice & Olivia (here’s their blush color).

Short skirts feel more tomboy with a bomber jacket.   Tamu McPherson contrasted hers with a patterned structured piece and brogues.  Topshop’s tassel wrap skirt or their angled wrap mini skirt are brilliant options.   You can find a similar navy jacket here.

A long skirt feels fresher when the hemline is above the ankle and paired with trainers.  Topshop’s pin stripe skirt is a straighter cut that works with trainers.  If you are not into long full skirts, Paper London does a wide leg culotte for a similar vibe.  Also Won Hundred Joanne trainers look like the above pair.
