How to style your Denver leather bomber jacket

July 10, 2020

From its WWI origins to its current prevalence in street style, your Denver leather bomber jacket is a truly timeless piece. Adorned by punks, police and pilots, the bomber or flight jacket is a versatile wardrobe staple for men and women.  It is this versatility that allows endless styling options. Whether you want to stand out in the workplace or take the perfect selfie, check out these tips for styling your Denver leather bomber jacket!

Mix with formal pieces
Adding your leather bomber jacket to semi-formal outfits is a great way to add a little edge to your style! For men, the fighter jacket is a great alternative for a traditional blazer. Pair with fitted trousers and a collared dress shirt to create a sleek, unexpected look. For women, pair your favorite midi-dress and ankle-high boots with your fighter jacket for an elegantly cool look. You can also try combining this look with a chic high pony-tail or top-knot to show off your bomber jacket’s neck and shoulder details.

Pick the right shoe
Shoes can make or break any outfit, especially when paired with a bomber jacket. Investing in quality boots is always a great idea, as boots with your leather jacket will never go out of style. For women, try ankle or heeled boots to add a bit of sophistication. For men, try a classic Doc Marten style. Maybe you are looking for something different? If so, there are plenty of great alternatives! For women, try a vibrant red or print heel for a fun, funky vibe. For men, try your favorite pair of dress sneakers to keep the look polished and casual.

Jeans and a Tee
A leather bomber jacket and jeans are practically perfect. This classic combination may seem a little safe, but who says safe can’t be stylish? A crisp white t-shirt, the perfect subtly distressed jean, and a bomber is always a great option for both sexes. For men, try a slim-legged jean with a crew-necked logo t-shirt for a slightly edgier look. For women, mix your favorite light-wash jean with a black turtleneck or high-neck top for something effortlessly hip.

Have fun with it
Ultimately, style should be fun! Pair your bomber with what you feel comfortable in. If you like the way it looks, rock it. There are no concrete rules to fashion and style (although we do highly suggest keeping certain body parts covered). Your Denver leather jacket is an investment piece that should bring you joy when you wear it.
