In a way, a black bomber jacket is a toned down version of a black leather jacket. It looks more casual and down to earth. As much as I like the black leather jacket, I have to admit that it is not suitable for people without the charismatic and cool character. On the other hand, a black bomber jacket can be paired with pretty much any casual outfit, just like white sneakers do. In this blog post, I’ll show you some of my favorite black bomber jacket outfit ideas. Let’s look at them.
Black bomber jacket, gray sweater and ripped jeans
Let’s start with a causal street outfit that has a nice looking color combination. For the top, wear a light gray sweatshirt with the black bomber jacket. Pair them with ripped skinny jeans and white sneakers. It’s such a stylish and refreshing outfit, especially for spring.
Dress All Black with black leggings & sneakers
The black bomber jacket does such a good job of making you look reserved yet decent. There are days when we just don’t want to be noticed. You’d be lying if you said you could wear a black leather jacket without even realizing it. So now you see that there are situations when you prefer the black bomber jacket over the leather jacket. Back to that outfit, you can just wear all black with a black sweater, bomber jacket, black leggings, and sneakers.
Wear it with a white t-shirt and black skinny jeans
Black bomber jackets are usually body-hugging by definition. Even so, you can still achieve a baggy and hip-hop look by going for a slightly oversized one. Simply combine the oversized jacket with a white t-shirt, black skinny jeans and trainers.
Checked shirt & gray sweater
Wear a slim fit gray sweater over a plaid shirt for a chic look. Wear a black bomber jacket over a sweater and finish off your outfit with black skinny jeans and trainers.
Wear it with a black crop top and a leather jacket
Before I get into this outfit idea, I want to warn you that this is super difficult to take off. I’m only including this one because I have friends who are super fit and would love to wear to show off their perfect waistline. If you have to, skip these and move on to the next outfit idea. If you’re still here, you must have put in a lot of effort to stay in good shape. Wear a black crop top, leather pants, a bomber jacket and white sneakers for this all-black outfit.
Black bomber jacket, boyfriend jeans & sandals
This outfit idea is easily my favorite on the list as it makes you look tall and most importantly, very easy to take off. The trick is to wear the black bomber jacket for the top and zip it up to make the top half of the body look slim and lift the waist. Then just wear boyfriend jeans and high heels.
Horizontal striped black and white t-shirt and black skinny jeans
I’ve talked a lot about horizontally striped t-shirts in other blog posts because they look great with almost all types of jackets and sweaters. So I’ll talk about it when I wear it with the bomber jacket. You can just choose a black and white or navy and white horizontal striped tee and pair it with ripped black skinny jeans and sneakers.
Black bomber jacket with gray midi sweater dress
It is sometimes very difficult to decide what to wear with a sweater dress when you need to keep warm. I would suggest that in this case you can wear a long gray cardigan for a more feminine look or a black bomber jacket for a cool look. For the shoes, you can just wear white sneakers to complete the causal outfit.
Wear it with black top & denim shorts
For a classic denim shorts and a black t-shirt outfit, the first thing I can think of is a checked boyfriend shirt to cover the pieces. If I have to choose something else, the black bomber jacket is barely a second.
Wear it with a semi-sheer t-shirt dress
A black bomber jacket goes very well with a black t-shirt dress. This t-shirt dress in particular has a certain twist in the semi-transparent edition. Leather ankle shoes would be the perfect choice for the shoes.
White oversized t-shirt, boyfriend jeans & chukka boots
As a very causal and relaxed outfit that you would probably wear to go shopping, you can just put on the oversized white t-shirt, bomber jacket and boyfriend jeans. A stylish way to complete the outfit is to combine it with chukka boots. For more information on outfit ideas for similar shoes, check out my other blog post on wearing chukka boots for women.
Wear with a black t-shirt and high-waisted leather skirt
You can wear a black t-shirt and a high-waisted leather mini skirt to show off your legs in a subtle way. The bomber jacket plays a very important role in this outfit as it prevents the outfit from becoming too sloppy.
Gray sweater, ripped jeans and open toe heels
For a typical gray t-shirt and ripped denim outfit, you can add character by wearing open toe heels and a black bomber jacket.
Badge bomber jacket with boyfriend jeans
For a more fun and creative look, you can try a badge bomber jacket. Wear it with ripped boyfriend jeans for that fun and slightly tough look.
Wear with black leather pants
Very often you see an actress in the film wearing the black leather jacket and the lederhosen outfit. In real life too, you might want to make it a little quieter 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’re not sure enough about how to style it without guidance, try the outfit ideas from the list above and I’m sure many of the ideas will work wonderfully on you.
