One fall item I'm feeling very tempted to rock lately is a bomber jacket. They're a little bit trendy, but I think they can bring a sporty twist to even the most polished outfit while still keeping the look clean and current. What do you think?
See how I styled this 100% organic cotton bomber (center) in Northern Virginia Magazine with heels and a midi-length pencil skirt, for example. Natalie from The Fashionably Broke and I each selected two key fall items and whipped up two ways to wear them this season-- please do click over to see what we picked! And don't worry, each item I selected passes the fair test, of course.
But let's talk about these bombers I found from center, then clockwise from top left:
- This 100% organic cotton bomber is made by Amour Vert for Master & Muse, Amber Valetta's sustainable fashion project. You can shop the whole eco-friendly collection at Yooxygen.
- Of course I love the grey monochrome of this wool bomber from American Apparel. You can also find several options in solid, polka dot or plaid from $60-$75 and one satin bomber jacket on sale for $22.50.
- The embroidered bomber is the Angelis Jacket by Antik Batik, which I just learned is a thoughtful company that focuses on preserving handmade, artisanal quality garment production knowledge in each place that they source their boho chic pieces. This jacket was handmade in India, for example, which explains the hefty price tag. Who knew? I didn't. Expect to read a little bit more about them here very soon.
- I'm kind of loving this vintage powder blue bomber jacket I found on Etsy from Jules Cristen Vintage- it's suede, and it's lovely.
- Ace and Jig also have a plaid version of the bomber jacket. They make their clothes under fair labor conditions with a single, small factory in India. Which they visit.
