I saw this outfit and thought it was fabulous. Casual, comfortable, and on trend. It’s easy to put together if you have a Summer weight bomber jacket. One that’s silky, drapey and soft is a great option, or one that’s lacey and lightweight. The bomber is great for air conditioning, a fresh sea breeze, or when things cool down in the mornings and evenings.
The colour palette is bold, high contrast and a little hard edged. Feel free to create the look with any colour palette. Here are the components of the formula:
Slim-fit Jeans + Blouse + Lightweight Bomber + Wrapped Sandals (sandals that “wrap around the ankle”)
The jeans need to showcase the ankle straps of the footwear so choose a cropped silhouette, or roll straight leg jeans at the hem. You’ll also want to do better than a layering tee so choose a blouse or knitted top that looks great when you take off the bomber. Leaving the top untucked is forgiving on the midsection, and follows the lines of the unzipped bomber.
To my eye, the sandals make the outfit less Tomboy. Ballet flats are a nice substitute if sandals aren’t your thing. As soon as you add flat oxfords, athletic sneakers, or chunky loafers, things look more Tomboy. Add jewellery, bag and eyewear as desired.
