The solution to this mid-season wardrobe dilemma is simple: invest in a versatile, lightweight bomber jacket
Shrug it off
Convert your jacket into a cape and keep your hands free. It’s a playful, elegant strategy for straddling the disparate demands of summer and autumn.
Play with androgyny
Copy Cara Selevingne and revel in the bomber jacket’s androgynous mystique. Pair your bomber with boyish brogues or sneakers, and a pair of tight jeans. The effect is casual, but the jacket’s utilitarian aesthetic will keep you looking polished and on-trend.
Drain the dregs of summer
Layer your short skirts and dresses with a bomber jacket for a contemporary, feminine look that will keep you warm as the days grow colder. Take advantage of this season’s dramatic prints and offset bold patterns with the bomber’s soft-spoken uniformity.
Marry your jacket with monochromatic pants, or a skirt, to produce the semblance of a suit with a twist. Adapt your jacket to the office, or keep it casual with a clean white t-shirt underneath – either way, it might be time to hang up your blazer and take your bomber out for a spin.
Practice pretty pragmatism
Knot your jacket around your waist when the weather gets warmer. Use your bomber to belt a collared button down shirt, or a lightweight collared dress – it’s a fast, fun revision of a classic look.
