Now Trending: Bomber Jackets
A Guide to the Outerwear Style You’ll Need this Fall
If you were looking for a sign to start shopping for your fall/winter jacket, then this is it! We are absolutely gushing over how excited we are that the bomber jacket is coming back into style just in time for cooler weather. We have always loved jackets, but this trend takes the love to another level. Think Pink Ladies from Grease but cooler; Joan Jett meets Blair Waldorf or Joanie loves Chachi, but more Rory Gilmore. We are putting a new spin on an old classic, and here are our favorite ways to wear the bomber jacket this fall!
With a Tulle Skirt or Tulle Dress
Femininity meets a little edgy vibe with this look! We love the great contrast of a bold jacket paired with a soft, sophisticated side. Not as harsh as a leather jacket but not as classic as a pea coat, this look is for the fashionista that wants a “now” look and loves to play dress-up in everyday life. Whimsical and appealing, this outfit can be worn to multiple events on your calendar depending on the shoes and the accessories that you style it with. Pair it with wedges and a cute topknot for an afternoon soiree, or heels and loose curls for a dinner and drinks date.
With Jeans and Riding Boots
The quintessential Maripoza Girl of 2016 LOVES a fabulous bandana, her favorite pair of jeans, a great pair of boots and, of course, a rose-gold bomber jacket. This is a great, everyday look, from PTO meetings to shopping in the afternoon, and it’s great for the busy girl who wants to stay chic and in style. Perfect for a fresh day in the Valley! The best top to pair with this look is an essential tank top or tee. The more minimalistic, the better.
The Athleisure Look
One of our favorite ways to dress in a hurry is with the athleisure trend. Perfect for the busy mom on the go but still not wanting to sacrifice style. This is also an amazing look for when your November and December starts to get hectic when you need to run errands around town, shopping for last minute gifts on your Christmas list but don’t have time to dress to the nines. Pair your favorite bomber jacket with great leggings or yoga pants, slip-on sandals or sneakers, a flouncy tee and a hat with the whole look! Incognito, yet so Hollywood, and so comfortable!
Black on Black
A classic bomber jacket look is pairing it with a black tank top and adding a pop of color, whether it comes in the form of a colorful statement necklace or colorful bandana. This look is SO Sandy from Grease at the very end when she’s winning the affection of Danny. A black wardrobe is also not only classic, but very Fashion Week Chic. Pair this with your favorite ankle boots, riding boots or even combat boots for the edgy girl.
The Ethereal Meadow Side Look
We couldn’t decide if this was country chic or wilderness chic, so we called it “meadow side chic”. Think a secret garden with lots and lots of pumpkins and flowers in the fall, but with cowboy boots! This look is adorable for a concert, an outdoor event or even a fun state fair or rodeo. A gorgeous swing dress looks fantastic under an embroidered bomber jacket paired with cowboy boots or ankle boots.
The Sparkly Maripoza
We can’t all be a James Bond girl, but this look is pretty close, and it’s oh so fun to pretend! This is for the girl who isn’t afraid to sparkle, a.k.a. every Maripoza girl! A dreamy sequined jacket is absolutely perfect for the holiday season; you can easily wear it into New Years and then again for Valentine’s Day! Yes, we definitely plan ahead. Pair it with over-the-knee boots and a little black dress, and be prepared to turn heads all around town. Be the belle of the office holiday party this season and try this look!
The “Baby it’s Cold Outside” Look
Every graphic tee deserves its best friend: the bomber jacket. Honestly, every outfit deserves a bomber jacket this fall for that extra fashion cherry-on-top. At Maripoza Boutique, we have a variety of adorable graphic tees for every personality (and hint, hint: they are great for stocking stuffers this Christmas)! When the weather turns more brisk, don’t sacrifice your short-sleeved favorites. Make sure to stay warm in style! Pair this look with your favorite dark denim, sneakers or ankle boots and a smile.
We have been so enamored with denim this fall, and as we venture into the later fall months and early winter, we want to play up this look with adding a bomber jacket to the mix! We have been seeing this look all over, in Nylon Magazine, fashion blogs and many fashionista Snapchats. We had to try it for ourselves, and we love this look with a little feminine, yet tomboyish edge. The half-up topknot is always a Maripoza favorite, and we also added ankle boots to the mix as well. Not into full on denim-on-denim? Pair your chambray shirts with your favorite black ripped denim for even more added texture and edge.
