Zahra’s Sheer Bomber Jacket Is Her New Summer Staple
One of the standout fashion trends of 2016 is the bomber jacket. Yes, those military-inspired pilot jackets have been having quite a moment on the international runways and the stylish street style set have been quick to adapt to the trend. And for obvious reason, too. There’s something immensely cool about this jacket.
This sporty jacket is the perfect way to rock the athleisure trend (that’s showing no signs of fading) and I’m not complaining. Comfort + style = winning combination always.
The bomber silhouette has been a retail hit all through winter, but guess what? You can wear this trend right in the middle of summer and into the transitional season too — you just have to find the perfect piece that’s lightweight enough to keep you looking chic but comfortable through our sweltering summers.
And ladies, I’ve found the perfect one to take home right now. This chic black number from Zara is my go-to piece currently. Not just because it’s black, but because it’s also light enough to wear as a cover-up in an air-conditioned office over my regular work outfit. And considering there’s still a slight nip in the air, it’s something I can easily throw over a playful dress for an evening out.
However, the versatile piece really works for me because of its sheer detail. It’s a great way to layer an outfit that’s bright or embroidered because the sheer fabric allows some of the detailing to show through without covering it up completely. Now that’s what I call the perfect on-the-go jacket!
