Fall's Standout Piece

The bomber jacket is definitely this Fall's standout piece, and also fits nicely into the athleisure trend that is everywhere. Kimberly and I tend to stick to classic pieces and mix trend in with our shoes or accessories, but we both found ourselves lusting after a bomber to layer on for cooler weather.

Dress It Up Or Down

The great thing about a bomber is that it is versatile enough to dress up for evenings or wear casual during the day. I have recently become obsessed with wearing it with my calf-length knit skirt (similar),  and white Ked's sneakers for a high/low look that's comfortable and easy to wear. Bombers tend to be boxy in shape, so I like to pair it with a more fitted bottom and top.

Go Bold Or Go Home

I decided that if I was going for a trend piece, I was going to go all the way and choose a bold color. You may not believe me when I tell you, but I actually found this orange satin bomber (similar) online at Nordstrom Rack one night when I was scouting layering pieces for a client... on sale for $9.99! (Pro tip: Nordstrom Rack online is a haven for great pieces that are in the department store at a much discounted price. Just be prepared to spend some time clicking through their site.)

Tips for Finding a Bomber Jacket You LOVE:

1.) Find Your Fit: Designed with a slightly oversized aesthetic, these jackets can run big. If you prefer a slimmer fit, consider sizing down or go for a two-toned baseball look.

2.) Stick To Solids: Floral embroidered bombers are in vogue this season and beautiful. However, they make a statement and limit the look and frequency of wear. Opt for a solid color for a pop of fun that still carries wearability.

3.) Personalize It: Add pins or patches to your bomber to make it your own and put a fun creative spin on it.
