If you haven’t noticed, bomber jackets are having a bit of a fashion moment. Sure, I’ve rocked a ton of cropped jacket on this fashion blog in the past, but it seems like you can’t walk into a store this season without seeing an array of styles, cuts, prints and patterns. I’ve been sitting on this blue Zara bomber for months, just waiting for slightly cooler temperatures. Not only is it the perfect combination of both slouchy and sporty, it’s still feminine and sophisticated. The bomber jacket instantly gives that street-style chicness that’s easy to style and wear. Whether you wear an oversized one with the arms rolled up or a shrunken 90’s inspired one, it will sure to be the statement piece you’re looking for this summer.

Pair it with a fun and flirty summertime dress to add a bit of an off-duty, sportswear inspired trend that instantly updates any girly outfit, or partner it with a cool shredded destress jeans for a more rocker chic look. A pale blue bomber is unexpected and perfect for dominating the catwalk or keeping you fabulous in your everyday life. It’s comfortable, lightweight and the perfect transition piece to take you from day to cool summer nights. My number one tip, since bomber jackets tend to be a little more relaxed, boxy and oversize, I suggest pairing it with tighter, formfitting pieces so it doesn’t come across too masculine.
