Simi’s Steals: The Sporty Summer Bomber Jacket
One universal fashion problem for most girls is, “What do I wear today?” This question has the power to reduce us to a hysterical mess. Fashionista or not, nobody wants sartorial answers that cost a fortune. And let’s just be honest, you’re THE style star if you know how to dress to the nines on a budget. So I’ve taken up this Herculean task: Every Saturday, I’ll round up a budget-friendly ensemble for you, all BELOW Rs 10,000. Yes! It’s going to be an entire outfit — from head-to-toe — without breaking the bank. Quite a challenge, right? Scroll down to shop this budget ensemble, and don’t forget to come back every Saturday to discover an outfit that’s yet another steal!
Not every day is a good day to channel that girly girl soul. Sometimes, you wish you could put together a minimalist ensemble that would still fetch you all the brownie points in the style department. And you know what? The fashion gods have decided to be considerate to the athleisure side of you; proof lies in runway shows from Vetements, Chloé, Saint Laurent, Etro, Moschino, and more.
But wait. Before you whine that it’s oh-so-hot, let me tell you that summer layering is all about lightweight fabrics, easy design, and breezy clothing. A summer bomber jacket is THE cover up to sport this season. To be precise, a bomber jacket is your best bet for summer layering because it is cool and trendy. Sequined, made out of satin, mesh variations or even embroidered ones; when it comes to summer bombers, you’re going to be spoilt for choice this time. This garment is a must-have for two reasons: wear it on a day outing when you’re trying to keep it casual, or add it to your work ensemble when you’re expecting a post-work fun night. Also, don’t restrict yourself with a bomber jacket — add an oversized bomber to your sheath dress and pair it with lace-up block heels, or wear it with a skater skirt, crop top and creepers. It’s all in the styling.
As far as my Style Steal for the week is concerned, I’ve picked this super stylish cut-work bomber from Zara in the perfect pastel pink. Wear it with a tank top from Mango and distressed boyfriend jeans from H&M, and complete the look with a pair of perforated sneakers from Koovs. If you’re feeling slightly dressy, you can work a metallic pair of sneakers instead of white. Wear that chic pair of shades from H&M, and girl, you’re ready to take over the street with your style.
