Owning two satiny green bomber jackets may seem excessive, so, for my own sake, allow me to justify. It’s not a secret that bomber jackets have become a ubiquitous piece in street style culture. Chic meets chill, they up the ante for so many looks. There are, however, two different categories of bomber jackets, which serve different style services: one is the statement bomber (as seen here on the Sauce), usually involving vibrant colors and embellishments, and the second is the minimal bomber. The minimal bomber, like my olive green one above, is understated, goes with almost everything, and I dare say is becoming the new denim jacket. That’s why I feel confident claiming that while the bomber jackets is “trendy” at this moment, it’s proven versatile enough to solidify itself as a necessary staple—a certified classic—very much here to say.  Also, I die over this olive green and blush combo. As “fall colors” like olive green, clay-camel, and navy pervade our spring/summer wardrobes, expect pastels to continue complimenting those deeper hues going into fall/winter.

Sneakers are the champions of the shoe scene right now, and I just love seeing how the fashion world keeps finding creative new ways to elevate more comfortable styles, because changes like this help to make fashion feel more inviting and fun, allowing for a more diverse street style community. These coated canvas Superga sneakers in a snake skin print are a great option for people who like subtle statement pieces. (No, that’s not an oxymoron. It’s a thing.)
