1. The Classic Bomber Look
Bomber jackets are a unique piece, and some of you might not know where to start with it. The best to break out your bomber jacket this spring is with our classic look.
Pair your bomber jacket with a plain tee (we love white or gray) with a pair of black jeans. Opting for a pair of jeans with a little distressing will give your outfit more depth and an “edgier feel.” Finish off your outfit with a pair of black ankle boots.
2. Layer it over a Dress
Bomber jackets are great because they can dress down fancier outfits, or accent more casual outfits.
We love to layer our bomber jackets over a tight black dress for a more casual feel. This look and be combined with a stylish air of heels for the perfect date night look.
Another option would be to pair your bomber jacket with a midi dress. Finish off this look with a pair of trendy sneakers (such as Adidas Superstars) for the ultimate Spring look.
3. Bomber & Athleisure
Casual and comfy is something we all love, especially when you can look great at the same time. The bomber jacket makes this possible and is a great addition to your athleisure wardrobe.
Pair your bomber jacket with your favorite pair of jeans, a cute tank or crop top, and a unique pair of sneakers.
This combination will give you a relaxed look that still catches everyones eye.
4. Make it Feminine with Florals
Want to feel a little girly? Don’t worry a bomber jacket can give you that look too. When we want to feel a little feminine, we pair our bombers with floral prints.

5. Pair it with a Skirt
Try pairing your bomber jacket with a form fitting skirt and crop top for a chic spring look. This outfit can be pair with a scrappy pair of heels for a very urban look.
Not feeling a crop top? No problem. Try pairing a pencil skirt and sweater with your bomber jacket for a more sophisticated look.
6. All Black Chic
This look is classic and easy for feel trendy in. Pair your bomber jacket with a pair of black skinnies, and black sneakers or booties.
As for tops, we love two different looks: go full on “black-on-black” with a basic tee, or incorporate a black an white striped shirt into your outfit to add more depth.
7. The Boyfriend Bomber
For a casual look and is still equally as trendy, pair your bomber with your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans.
We love to wear a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans with a form fitting tank (or bodysuit) tucked in. Then we layer our bomber jacket over these two pieces and finish off the look with a pair a feminine sandals.
8. Wear it over a Graphic Tee
Combining your bomber jacket and a simple graphic tee is a great way for achieve another Spring look.
If your bomber jacket is a neutral color, we suggest using a brighter colored graphic tee. However, if your bomber jacket is more of the statement piece, opt for a more neutral graphic tee.
Finish off the look with a styling pair of heels to add a touch of glam.
9. Size up for a Chic Oversized Look
The oversized bomber is probably one of the hottest trends this Spring. When going to for the oversized look, your bomber jacket must be perfectly oversized.
We suggest that you choose a bomber that hits you right below your bottom, or at the largest point of your hips. Also, make sure the sleeves stop right at your wrists.
Oversized bombers can be worn over anything from dressed to tee and jeans. Make sure that the pieces under your bomber jacket are form fitting though. That way your won’t get lost under all the fabric.
10. Pair it with Leather
For an edgy look that will catch everyones eye, pair your bomber jacket with a pair of leather jeans or leggings.
To make this outfit ready for spring we love to pair our leather leggings with a pastel colored shirt. We then layer our bomber jacket over it, and throw on your favorite sunglasses. To finish off the look, we like to wear our favorite heeled booties.
