Today, the lines between workout wear and daily wear are becoming more and more blurred. Leggings are now a part of mainstream fashion, sports bras can double as crop tops, and now jackets are even jumping in on the blurred line trend. So what exactly is this newfound love of wearing workout clothes-for activities outside of getting your sweat on-called? Athleisure—and this fashion trend is definitely one we hope is here to stay.
One of the hottest trends in athleisure right now is the bomber jacket. This edgy outerwear is no longer reserved for certain occasions that warrant a tough girl look. Instead, we’re seeing it being styled in a variety of ways that fit nearly any style. They’ve proven to be extremely versatile and can take an everyday look and turn it into something right off the page of a fashion magazine.
How to Style Bomber Jackets
As we mentioned, there’s almost no limit to how you can style a bomber jacket. Dress it up or dress it down and it’s sure to give you a boost of confidence no matter where you wear it to. For a flirty daytime look pair a bomber jacket with your favorite pair of leggings, a crop top and sneakers. You’ll feel ultra-chic as you run errands. Or pair it with some cuffed jeans and sandals for a low-key preppy look that’s perfect for a coffee date.
Or, for a true athleisure look, pair it with a slick pair of capri leggings, a slinky sports bra and a high ponytail. You’ll be the envy of everyone at the gym when you stroll through the doors. Plus, it doubles as a great way to stay warm as you head to a workout on a colder day (and who doesn’t like a garment that’s both stylish and practical?).
Take your bomber jacket from day to night by pairing it with a form fitting dress, sky high heels and some statement jewelry for the ultimate sexy look that will have all eyes on you. Don’t feel like a dress? Pair the jacket with some ripped jeans, knee high boots and a sheer top for a look that screams confidence.
