This fashion and style blogger has rocked her vintage black bomber jacket (with classic orange lining) with simple grey jeans from Zara and a H&M tropical shirt. If you’re not feeling quite so tropical yourself, try teaming it with a simple white, grey or even black fitted tee. Add some black boots, even those Doc Martens we discussed if you bought yourself some, and you have more ways to wear a bomber jacket.

Where you would normally wear a casual black day-jacket, swap it for your vintage bomber instead. Simple!
