They’re everywhere lately. What do you think of the bomber jacket trend? I have mixed feelings. It’s (usually) a practical, hearty jacket. But on the other hand, it tends to add a bit of bulk. I’m trying out the trend with this thrift store find.
Outfit details: bomber jacket – Volcom (thrifted), black distressed jeans – Joe’s Jeans, suede booties – Vince Camuto, plain white tee – Old Navy, studded clutch – Urban Expressions (Nordstrom Rack), sunglasses – Smoke x Mirrors via Ditto Endless Eyewear. (Have you tried Ditto’s Endless Eyewear program? An endless supply of designer on trend sunglasses to borrow for only $24 a month! Use the code FASHIONFUN to try it for one month for free!)
So I have a project in mind for this bomber. I’m going to try adding a few patches. We’ll see how that goes. Usually when it comes to projects like this I’m all enthusiasm with no patience, which leads to some wacky results. I’ll keep ya posted.
This week I had the hardest time picking only three looks to feature. You gals are bringing it big time!

Hey Bomber Babe!!! Guess who you look like? The Flight Instructor from Top Gun!! Tall, chic and sexy!!! Happy Easter lovely!!
Aww made my day!! Thanks Sweetheart! 🙂
I like the bomber jacket on you! I like that it doesn't seem to be too bulky… And I like the color on you!
Have a fabulous weekend!
Thanks Andrea! 🙂
A good army colored jacket is such a badass statement. You're feelin' this look 🙂
Hee … thanks, Glenda! 🙂
I love the look of bomber jackets!!
Thanks Pam 🙂
Can't wait to see what's in store with this fab jacket – Have wonderful Easter!!
Thanks Rebecca! 🙂
Love the bomber jacket! I think it is definitely a classic! I also adore your clutch! Thanks for hosting!
Thanks so much Katie! 🙂
I laughed when you talked about your future project with this bomber jacket—I so know that feeling—great intentions, and dreams but the reality is different! Can't wait to see it though! jodie
thanks for hosting!!
Hee …. if nothing else the patched jacket will make a "fun" post! LOL. 🙂
A bomber jacket just gives such a casual cool vibe, love how you styled yours & these are great picks!! Have a great long weekend Dawn Lucy!
Thanks so much, Marta! 🙂
This is definitely a jacket for someone tall and slim… But hey, that's you! And your accessories and heels also help make the jacket more modern and less an 80's flashback. As far as I'm concerned, this is one trend I will pass (since I'm neither tall nor slim and a bomber would make me look twice my size…)
It's a tougher one to pull off than I thought, so I don't blame you skipping this trend! 🙂
That jacket looks awesome, it will look even more amazing with the patches I'm sure! 🙂
Thank you for the link up!

Thanks Mica! 🙂
Your jacket seems thinner than most and I like the authentic military vibe it offers. So cool you found this thrifting! I am looking forward to seeing the patch project 🙂
It will be interesting! 😉 Thanks Jennie! 🙂
I have two bomber jackets and I should get more use out of them .. they are sort of hanging in the closet. I think I prefer a suit style jacket a bit better on me 🙂
You look super cute .. !!
Suit style jackets are more flattering for sure, but hey, now is the time to pull out those bomber jackets and wear them! 🙂
Wow, you look amazing in this bomber! I have to second Andrea's comment, especially since I just watched Top Gun again the other day! Good luck with the patches!
I SO need to watch Top Gun … it's been years! Muah, Carrie … happy Easter. 🙂
The jacket looks great!!
Thanks Jaymie! 🙂
Hello Dawn, I do not need a jacket where I live, ut look cool and casual in your bomber.
Thank you for your lovely link up and Happy Easter.
Thanks so much for linking up again and we'd love to see you every week! Happy Easter! OXOX
I am with Andrea, so sassy and chic, right out of Top Gun – I can hear the theme music in my head as I type! I love this look on you, and how you styled it up! Thank you for including me in your picks this week – what an honor to be featured amongst all these fashionable gals! Happy Easter and thank you for hosting the link up!
Loving your style, Suzanne! I totally want to have a Top Gun movie night now! OXOX
Love that bomber! Such a great look. Enjoy your weekend!
Thanks Mary! 🙂
Thanks for the feature doll! Got my eye on the Urban outfitter bomber jacket you picked! Have a wonderful Easter weekend.
You know I loved this look, Sheree! OXOX
The bomber jacket looks fab on you, love the color too. I don't have one which is weird considering I love jackets..need to look for one 🙂 Happy Easter Dawn!
Happy Easter, Nora! Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂
Love this bomber jacket and your wedges! Perfect casual look!
Thanks Kathrine! 🙂
Love, love, love this look, Dawn! If I had a daily uniform, it would look like this, haha! 🙂 Thanks for hosting the link up!!
Hee … I'll take that as an awesome compliment!! Thanks, Kacie! 🙂
Love your ootd Dawn Lucy. Its a bit on the softer side. You are right. Mine is all neoprene and quite bulky but short. So works for me. Love your picks here: especially the black ones by Topshop and Urban outfitters! Happy Easter to San José <3 Sabina
I love those too. Happy Easter to Germany, Sabina! 🙂
woohoo! Thanks for featuring me on the blog today :-)….And I love your shoes!
Love your Chanel-inspired look here, Moumous! 🙂
I di like bomber jackets but I have to be so careful that they're not too masculine (with my pixie short crop!). I do like yours because, as you say, its not too bulky. I love the way you've styled it!
Thanks Suzy. I bet it would look adorable on you, chic pixie cut and all! 🙂
You are rocking that bomber jacket look!
Thanks Laura! 🙂
I can't believe you found a bomber jacket at a thrift store when they are so popular right now! Lucky you! I think you look great in yours. I would like to try a bomber jacket. I like that they are not stiff. I usually feel so uncomfortable in jackets and blazers because my back is wider than the rest of me and they never seem to fit right. I don't care for the heavily embroidered bomber jackets, but I like the simpler ones.
I found it about a month ago and I'm thinking maybe I just barely got it before all the fashionista thrifters went looking for one … maybe? Or yeah, I probably just lucked out! ;P
I really like the bomber jacket; patches or not! If it was me, it would never see a patch because like you I might have a few brilliant ideas, but my problem is the follow through and the lack of skill…lol! Happy Easter break!
Oh me too … this "project" will probably end up being a good laugh. But the bomber was dirt cheap and … hey … why not?! ;P
Cute bomber jacket! I can't wait to see what you do with it!
Doused In Pink
Hee … thanks, Jill! 🙂
What a great find! I love bomber jackets. I recently bought a pink one! They remind me of the 80s, so much fun! Have a great weekend!
Love your pink one, Cathy! 🙂
I've been rather "on the fence" about the bomber jacket trend, dearest Dawn…but this military green thrifted find of yours?? I think it's made me a convert!! Can't wait to see it all decked out in patches, too…you go girl!! ;D P.S. Sending Happy Easter wishes your way!! XOXO
Happy Easter to you too, my dear! I'm on the fence with it still, but … I did feel pretty cool wearing it. And all the Top Gun comments are making me smile! 😀
Dawn Lucy your bomber jacket is the bomb… haha, see what I did there!! ;))
It looks really classic with the B&W, this is my kinda casual outfit!
It's not a style I've thought of buying, and I don't think I wore them first time around but I do rather like them. I think that an embroidered one might take my eye one day… We shall see!!
Thank you for hosting, have a great Easter weekend!
Hee .. thanks, Catherine. You're so cute & sweet. Happy Easter! 🙂
Stunning jacket Dawn, I love that jacket on you!
Thanks Rachel! 🙂
Totally love this chic look! I am excited fir some diy as well!
I love the look of the olive bomber especially with your black jeans. Nice! I know what you mean, at one point i thought about making jewelry and I just dont have the patience. Just take your time. 🙂
Hee .. .thanks Jess! 🙂
Great outfit – love your jacket! It goes perfectly with the distressed denim. Happy Easter!
