How to Wear A Bomber Jacket 6 Ways

This post may contain affiliate links. See our privacy policy.

Bomber jackets are more classic than trendy — and always reliable, comfortable, and super stylish. You can easily wear this piece when you want to dress down something that’s a little too prim for your everyday or toughen up a pair of jeans and a tank. You can even throw your bomber on over a skirt, a dress, or a jumpsuit!

So what’s the best way to wear the always-cool bomber? Here are six bomber jacket outfits to inspire you!

1. Top Your Dresses

Ready to show off your pretty warm-weather dresses? You absolutely are — but that chill in the air threatens to totally derail your sartorial plans for the day. Enter the versatile bomber jacket.

This one is made with leather and, as litosoi shows, it’s perfect to throw on over a chic, relaxed, and colorful dress for both contrast and warmth. Perfection!

2. Sporty Chic Forever

Who can resist the appeal of off-duty chic? This ensemble capitalizes on laid-back style, but doesn’t fall into the somewhat boring jeans-and-tee trap.

Yes, this outfit includes jeans and a tee, but it also incorporates a lightweight bomber and a pair of sporty kicks—and those two details make all the difference!

3. A Little Contrast

It’s tough to resist the beauty of rose gold, whether it’s an eye shadow, a piece of jewelry, or, as seen here, an eye-catching bomber jacket. The silky finish lends the look a dressy touch, while the lighter shade provides perfect contrast to dark jeans.

All you need is a simple necklace to complete your look.

4. Military Chic

After all these years, military styles still dominate the fashion world. This jacket feels authentic and looks comfortable, and is perfect to wear with your most simple, all-black outfits.

You can add a pair of biker booties and a chain bag to finish your outfit to perfection.

5. Vivid Embroidery Hues

Bright colors, dynamic embroidery, and artful designs send this bomber jacket in an entirely unexpected direction.

You may want to try a jacket like this with relatively simple pieces — a plain tee that picks up on one of the topper’s colors, a pair of jeans, and simple sneakers. Pin your hair up if there’s a great design to show off!

6. The Sweetest Florals

You can never go wrong with a pretty floral print, especially during spring. You can make this look work by pairing the brilliant blossoms with something simple so that there’s no competition between prints.

Try a sleek jumpsuit and a pair of heels for a fun night-out look, or follow this model’s cue and go with jeans and a comfortable top.

Great Ideas!

For a cool casual look, I pair a bomber jacket with a T-shirt, pants or chinos, and tennis shoes. To wear a plane coat for a brilliant easygoing event, pick an exemplary style and pair it with chinos or pants and a nabbed shirt. Make your bomber jacket by blending it with basic garments in neutral colors.

Good ideas! As it seems to me, the third option is not successful, tight clothes and this bomb is too vulgar to show the legs. It's sexy, but I will not let my girl wear it. And the color is so-so, if you already decided to dress freely, then choose a color that is sexier and brighter or, conversely, darker (black or dark gray). Well, for example, the jacket by Guess on this page, the twelfth jacket. This is my opinion, I don't want to offend the author)))

Great ways to wear a bomber. I'd be most likely to wear the longer line bomber with a dress. Gail
