In a way, a black bomber jacket is a toned-down version of a black leather jacket. It looks more casual and more down to earth. As much a fan of the black leather jacket as I am, I must admit that it doesn’t suit people without the charismatic and cool character. On the other hand, a black bomber jacket can pretty much be put together with any casual outfit, very much the way white sneakers do. In this blog post, I am going to show you some of my favorite black bomber jacket outfit ideas. Let’s check them out.
Black Bomber Jacket, Grey Sweater & Ripped Jeans
Let’s start with a causal street outfit that has a comfortable looking color combination. For the top, wear a light grey sweatshirt with the black bomber jacket. Pair them with ripped, cropped skinny jeans and white sneakers. It is such a stylish and refreshing outfit, especially for the spring.
Dress All Black with Black Leggings & Sneakers
The black bomber jacket does such a good job in making you look low key but still decent. There are days when we just don’t want to be noticed. You would be lying if you say you can wear a black leather jacket without being noticed. So, now you see that there are situations when you prefer the black bomber jacket over the leather jacket. Back to this outfit, you can simply wear all black with a black sweater, a bomber jacket, black leggings and sneakers.
Wear with White Tee & Black Skinny Jeans
Black bomber jackets are usually body fit by definition. Having said that, you can actually achieve a more baggy and hip-hop look by choosing a slightly oversized one. Simply pair the oversized jacket with a white t shirt, black skinny jeans and sneakers.
Plaid Shirt & Grey Sweater
For a look that involves some beautiful layering, wear a grey slim fit sweater over a plaid shirt. Wear a black bomber jacket over the sweater and complete the outfit with black skinny jeans and sneakers.
Wear with Black Crop Top & Leather Jacket
Before I getting into this outfit idea, I would like to warn you that this one is super difficult to pull off. I only include this one because I have friends that are super fit and would love to how to wear in a way that can showoff their perfect waistline. So, if you have to, skip this one and move on to the next outfit idea. If you are still here, good, you must have put a lot of effort into keeping yourself in good shape. Anyway, for this all black outfit, wear a black crop top, leather pants, a bomber jacket and white sneakers.
Black Bomber Jacket, Boyfriend Jeans & Heeled Sandals
This outfit idea is easily my favorite among the list, due to the fact that this makes you look tall and, most importantly, it is very easy to pull off. The trick is to wear the black bomber jacket for the top and zip it in an attempt to make the top half of your body look slim and raise the waistline. Then simply wear boyfriend jeans and high heels.
Black and White Horizontal Striped Tee & Black Skinny Jeans
I have talked a lot about horizontal striped tee in other blog posts because they just look good with almost all sorts of jackets and sweaters. So I am going to talk about it too on wearing it with the bomber jacket. You can simply choose a black and white or navy and white horizontal striped t shirt and pair it ripped black skinny jeans and sneakers.
Black Bomber Jacket with Grey Midi Sweater Dress
It is sometimes very difficult to think about what to wear with a sweater dress if there is a necessity to keep warm. I would suggest that in this case, you can wear a long grey cardigan for a more feminine look or wear a black bomber jacket for a cool look. For the shoes, you can simply wear white sneakers to complete the causal outfit.
Wear with Black Top & Denim Shorts
For a classic denim shorts and black tee outfit, the first thing I can think of is to wear a boyfriend plaid shirt to overlay the pieces. By if I have to choose something else, the black bomber jacket is a close second.
Wear with Semi-sheer T Shirt Dress
A black bomber jacket can match very well with a black t shirt dress. This t shirt dress in particular has a little bit of twist in the semi-sheer overlay. For the shoes, leather ankle shoes would be the perfect choice.
White Oversized Tee, Boyfriend Jeans & Chukka Boots
As a very causal and relaxed outfit that you would probably wear to grocery shopping, you can simply put on the oversized white t shirt, the bomber jacket and the boyfriend jeans. A stylish way to complete the outfit is to pair with chukka boots. To find out more about outfit ideas of similar shoes, check out my other blog post on how to wear chukka boots for women.
Wear with Black Tee & High Waisted Leather Skirt
A good way to subtly show off your legs, you can wear a black tee and a high waisted leather mini skirt. The bomber jacket plays a very important role in this outfit as it keep the outfit from being too sloppy.
Grey Sweater, Ripped Jeans & Open Toe Heels
For a typical grey tee and ripped jeans outfit, you can add more character to it by wearing open toe heels and a black bomber jacket.
Badged Bomber Jacket with Boyfriend Jeans
For a more fun and creative look, you can try a badged bomber jacket. Wear it with ripped boyfriend jeans for this fun and slightly tough look.
Wear with Black Leather Pants
Very often in the movies, you will see some actress wearing the black leather jacket and leather pants outfit. In real life too, you may want to tune it down a little bit by replacing the leather jacket with a bomber jacket.
By now, you should be able to see that the black bomber jacket is very easy to style. If you are not confident enough to style it without guidance, try the outfit ideas from the above list and I am sure many of the ideas will work wonderfully on you.
