The bomber jacket is having a serious moment and we totally get why. This lightweight layering piece is the ultimate topper because it looks good with everything. And Jessi Malay, blogger behind mywhiteT, proves this statement to be true.

3 ways to wear a bomber jacket

 

Try wearing a bomber with cut-offs, bodysuit and a choker.

Look 1: The 90s street style trend isn’t going anywhere. Cutoffs, a sexy bodysuit and choker is the summer uniform of every It-girl. The bomber is the perfect way to top it all off.

Wear a bomber with a t-shirt dress and sassy heels.

Look 2: The unexpected mix of casual and dressy is truly an art. Transform a casual t-shirt dress into a downtown chic look by adding a bright, sassy heel and draped bomber. Tie a button down around the waist for added dimension and you’ve got a look that is hot AF.

Look 3: Bombers are your classics’ BFF. A white tee (we’re partial to a sexy bodysuit), distressed denim, and a pair of sandals may seem basic but throw on a bomber and you’ve upped the style ante.

JULY 4TH DESTINATIONS

5 FOR THE 4TH

Ready to hit the road to celebrate ‘Murica’s 240th bday? These five editor-approved cities around the country are perfect for partying it up on Independence Day. Just don’t forget your sparklers.

America, f*** yeah!: Washington, DC

Washington, DC

DC’s the place to go full-on red, white and blue. The huge fireworks display over National Mall is exactly what you’d expect from the nation’s capital. Check it out from a river cruise on the Potomac or Jack Rose Dining Saloon in Adams Morgan, a whiskey lover’s dream with an epic rooftop bar.

Double your fun: San Francisco, CA

Go twice as hard at San Francisco Bay with two synced firework displays from Pier 39 and the Municipal Pier. Watch from Fisherman’s Wharf or bring a cooler and a flashlight and hop a ferry to Angel Island to get panoramic views with smaller crowds.

A big bang with lots of twang: Nashville, TN

Nashville, TN

Plan on Music City to bring the heat. Two downtown stages will host live music from both local and national acts, with Sheryl Crow as the headliner. The Nashville Symphony closes out the 4th with a program that syncs to a solid half-hour of eye-popping fireworks. Ooooh… Ahhhh…

Pier party: Chicago, IL

Navy Pier’s got you this 4th. Catch a ride on the Mystic Blue party cruise, grab some BBQ and brews on the rooftop at Freedom Fest or line up for the 150-foot-high ferris wheel – they’re all on point for catching firecrackers over Lake Michigan.

Historic blowout: Boston, MA

Boston, MA

Get to the Esplanade early to snag a spot on the Charles by the Hatch Shell. Your payoff: live performances by Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas and Little Big Town, along with unbelievable pyrotechnics set to the Boston Pops. And if you can’t get away for the long weekend, don’t sweat it – Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular is being aired live on CBS.

 

CLOSET REVIVAL: GUY’S EDITION

Summer’s here, and some of those warm weather staples could use a refresh. Bring your look up to speed with a few strategic pieces.

The Flight Pant

Jogger lovers, meet your new friend for humidity-soaked days. The flight pant has an easy fit with natural, lightweight construction that feels breezy in the heat. And if you’ve ever struggled with the perfect roll, the hidden button cuffs have you covered.


The Contrast PoloA polo is the perfect polished/casual balance to strike when it’s too hot for a shirt and tie. If the occasion calls for something even classier, pair one with a suit jacket or blazer and clean-finish jeans.



Indigo Blue Button-UpsDeep blues and true indigo dyes are a big deal in button-ups right now. If you wear a lot of black, it’s the perfect time to switch up to something a little lighter.


The Patched BomberSummer isn’t all about lightening up. You’ve got your night games, rainouts and random chilly days in the mix. Take ’em all on with the current champ in men’s outerwear styles.
