The Bomber jacket has become a must in our wardrobes for a couple of seasons and since it seems to be staying around for a couple more seasons … Here is a quick guide to help you find the perfect Bomber Jacket for your body type:


Hourglass or Rectangle

When styling a bomber jacket for any of these two body shapes the most important thing is to delimit the waist and keep a balance between the upper and the lower part of the body.

  • Play with the prints, colors and appliqués.
  • Bomber jackets with kind-of-belted waist will favor your silhouette.

The classic bomber jacket goes perfectly with this body shape because it adds volume on the upper part of the body, balancing the silhouette; however, here are a few tips to make the most of this item.

  • Embrace heavy fabrics (my favorites for winter are leather & fur).
  • To trace your waist, use short bomber jackets with stretch fabric on the bottom part.
  • Use bright colors, heavy prints, and all kind of appliqués. It is better if they are near the chest or the shoulders.
  • Try bomber jackets with puffy sleeves, sleeves with different fabrics or sleeves with different prints.

This body shape might be the hardest one to style with a bomber jacket.

A bomber jacket usually provides extra volume to the upper part of the body, which is exactly the opposite of what we would want to do while styling this body type.

  • The most important thing is to look for bomber jackets made of light fabric, this will make all the fabric fall down around your hips.
  • Try to avoid heavy or irregular prints, instead prefer regular ones.
  • If you are using color blocks, make sure you use the darker color on the upper part of the body.
  • Avoid shoulder pads, puffy sleeves or decor around or near the neck or shoulders.
