Happy #fashionwednesday!! I am adjusting to life with two kitties (still hoping they’re best friends by the end of the week, but we will see), and hanging out with my hubby! Today I’m showing you how to style my new favorite accessory: the graphic bomber jacket. This particular one is from Arenlace Bridal, and they have a MILLION adorable accessories for my married and soon to be married readers. Don’t worry though — if you aren’t married I’ve linked to some other cutes one, too! Let’s do this.
SHOP THIS EXACT JACKET HERE & SIMILAR ONES BELOW:
I am so obsessed with this jacket it isn’t even funny. I think it’s absolutely adorable. I’m so into bomber jackets lately, and I think you can style them so many ways. Obviously, my favorite way is with a graphic tee and ripped jeans. I typically like to pair them with Nikes or another kind of sneaker. You can check out how I styled my light pink bomber here, and my sequin bomber jacket here.
This is a look I would wear out on a relaxed date night with my husband, out to lunch with a girlfriend or running errands. It’s so casual, which I love, but also lets you play with the type of hair and makeup you wear because it’s so neutral which is also awesome.
I definitely plan on taking this look with me to NYFW this year (eeeeeek stay tuned for more posts on that).
Tip #1: How to find your perfect bomber
This is really about personal style. I have 3 bombers — a light pink (millennial pink if you will), a black sequin and now a graphic. I think they are three distinct types of bombers. I think the light pink one is interchangeable with any outfit, fancy or casual, but the graphic one is kind of limited to casual. The sequin one CAN be casual, but I honestly think it looks best when paired with a killer pencil midi skirt. Decide what kind of look you reach for most and then plan your bomber around that.
Tip #2: How to find your perfect pair of boyfriend jeans
I use this simple rule when buying boyfriend jeans: tight butt, loose strut. Ok, I have literally never actually said that but the rule is the same. LOL. You need to keep the jeans fitted around your bum, and loose around your knees. Preferably with ripped sections because that aids in the the loose knees without looking like your pants are too big. People run into problems when they forget the tight butt rule. It doesn’t look intentional when you have a baggy back side.
Tip #3: ROCK THAT LOOK
I always like to end with this even though it isn’t a real tip per say. The key to EVERY SINGLE OUTFIT you wear is having the confidence to wear it. If you feel pretty in it, ignore the haters. It doesn’t matter your body shape, what you weigh, how society thinks you should look, etc. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “red lipstick intimidates guys, don’t wear it”, or “you really can’t pull off bell bottom jeans”, or “don’t wear fake eyelashes because you look too done up for every day”. Forget it. Forget them. I like red lipstick so I wear it. I like bell bottom jeans so I buy them. I like fake lashes so I AM GOING TO PUT THEM ON. Do what makes you feel like a queen.
PIN THIS FOR LATER:
Ok, so I know today wasn’t chalk full of bomber jacket tips, but I hope what you took away from this post is that you can wear anything that makes you feel amazing. It’s hump day, so make the most of the rest of your week and wear one thing out of your comfort zone!!
