Fall is right around the corner, and what better time to rummage through your closet to fish out your outerwear essentials than now? We’re sure you still have that trusty bomber jacket stashed in there. Don’t worry because we have curated some recent celebrity outfits featuring this staple piece, so you will not run out of styling ideas come the colder months and not have to use the same look over and over again.
1. Go for the edgy look, and wear your bomber jacket with a pair of leather shorts. Style with a plaid shirt wrapped around your waist.

Chloe Sims showed off her modeling prowess in this copy-worthy attire. She skilfully styled her black bomber jacket with a pair of leather shorts and then added some ’90s twist via her plaid shirt. But rather than having the grungy effect we are expecting, this outfit looks classy, thanks to the red pumps and the gold accessories.
2. Wear a bomber jacket over a tea-length dress.

Bomber jackets are often associated with sporty ensembles. Try steering away from that cliché, and opt to wear yours with a feminine tea-length dress instead. Gemma Cairney did just that, and it worked!
3. Tuck a form-fitting bomber jacket in your A-line miniskirt.

A-line miniskirts are so trendy these days. They’re also flattering. Why not take it up a notch by wearing one with a knitted bomber jacket just like Karen Gillan’s? You’d be rocking a runway look, and everyone would follow your lead. Complete the ensemble with a striking pair of booties.
4. Go wear your jacket with printed drawstring pants.

Wearing a bomber jacket with a pair of denim jeans is practically a no-brainer. Everyone has already done it. So, give that look a rest, and wear your jacket with printed drawstring pants instead. To make it work, use a plain-colored jacket.
5. Pair a dainty slip dress with your bomber jacket.
