Rule # 23: How to wear a bomber jacket.

The bomber jacket is back and it's better than ever for this season, but do you know what a bomber jacket is? Bomber jackets are also known as flying jackets because there were originally created for pilots but later became really famous in popular culture and it's a huge trend this season, so you need to get your hands on a good bomber jacket that you could even wear through the fall season. We've seen bomber jackets on a number of catwalks. The originally bomber jackets were reserved for men only but designers reinvented them with different fabrics and styles for women. My suggestion is to look for bomber jackets in feminine fabrics and patterns.

So how could you wear your bomber jacket? You can wear it with jeans, skirts, pants and even shorts over a t-shirt or shirt. The secret is to play with the accessories and feel comfortable. Pay attention to your body type because a bomber jacket will make you look fuller than you are. 
Have a look at these examples I've created for you: 

Bomber, jeans & top, Mango. Bag, Zara. Shoes, Nine West. Bangles, Rare London.

Bomber & shorts, Mango. Shoes, Zara. Necklace, Clutch, Asos.

Bomber, top & bag, Zara. Trousers, J Brand Collection. Sandals, Topshop. Belt, Mango.

What do you think? 
So when you look for a bomber jacket keep these ideas in mind: soft shades, pretty fabrics and cool prints.

Have a nice weekend!
