The athleisure trend has had a major moment over the past few years, and taken the “yoga pants” movement to new, more fashionable heights. But with each season comes a new iteration of the trend, and sporty chic is no exception. This season, the bomber jacket is making a statement as the must-have athletic-inspired piece, being paired with everything from dresses to dresses, jeans and track pants. The look is fun and street chic. Here’s a look at how I styled my BlankNYC bomber jacket for a casual weekend.
When your bomber jacket also brings a burst of floral blooms, you know it’s the perfect choice for spring. I wanted to play up the stunning blues of this bomber jacket, so I paired it with a casual white tee and high-waist white jeans so it absolutely popped. I love this perfectly slouchy tee by Splendid, and have been living in these high-waisted jeans this season — which pair so well with off-the-shoulder tops, bodysuits and statement tees. For a date night spin, trade the jeans and tee for a white dress. Or, to make it work appropriate, try a white trouser and a crisp white shirt to achieve a similar effect that’s all business. Zip it up to flatter your waist, or leave it open to show off your top. Either way, the bomber is a fresh look for all shapes and sizes.
I love the way silver tones look with shades of blue, so I opted for four fun silver necklaces — three skinny silver chokers and one statement rose piece, which echoes the floral theme of the bomber jacket. Sporty aviator sunglasses and subtle earrings give the look a little extra metallic flair. But it’s the eye-catching striped crossbody handbag by Michael Kors that ups the accessory ante with pattern, metallic sheen and another sporty element. I love this bag for everything from dinner with the girls to summer festivals — so versatile and fun. Add a classic sneaker, and your look is complete. But if you want to dress it up, trade the sneaker for a posh heeled sandal!
Updating your athleisure look is as easy as adding a bomber jacket to your wardrobe. Then, mix and match it with your favorite staples, and get a little sporty this spring!
