I spent 2 years living in the blazing Arizona sun (and a year in LA), living in flip flops, sundresses, shorts, tank tops, and swimsuits. Then, I would stop into a grocery store and walk around with goosebumps until I got back outside. Same with movie theaters, malls, and my work office (not that I was wearing shorts there but they still seem to crank up the AC).
I learned to keep a hoodie or cardigan in my car at all times! As times in Arizona were short-lived and not the type of environment I grew up in, I just like anything that acts as a cover-up just out of comfort. I love hoodies, cardigans, sweaters, sweatshirts, light jackets….bomber jackets.
Bomber jackets are a great addition to a wardrobe. They can add a bit of style to a simple t-shirt and jeans (and keep you warm in the movies). As spring is [sort of] on the horizon, I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of these soon; they’re perfect for spring as the temperature wavers.
Here’s a great assortment of bombers (or similar style) that are all on sale!
Free People: This one is simple, very affordable (and 40% off). Ribbed cuffs and waistline, front pockets. It comes in 3 colors (black, olive green, sort of a maroon/wine color).
Rag & Bone: I really like the waistline details on this one (“varsity stripes”). This jacket has a quilted pattern and is also made in USA if that’s something you like to support (I do).
Vince: Already previously mentioned this brand that my husband loves. There stuff is always comfortable and good quality. It is also a quilted pattern and comes in olive green.
Blank NYC: This is a brand I really like – they fit petites well. I added this one because it’s a bit more unique with a floral pattern. I’m usually not into floral but I kind of like this one.
Shopbop: Super affordable. This jacket is a light “blush” color (there is also a darker color called “dusty cedar”. It’s made of all satin so it’ll be soft and smooth.
Topshop: This is my favorite of the group because it’s simple, dark colored, and the zipper blends in a bit more with the jacket. It comes in navy blue or pink.
