If you're on the fence about purchasing a bomber jacket, Rihanna's latest look might just convince you. As reported in Vogue, Rihanna wore a bra as a top and an edgy bomber jacket in Tokyo, and paired it with graphic prints and ripped denim cut-offs. Summer weather may not be practical for a bomber jacket, but the coolness factor is worth a little sweat, no?
Though Rihanna is a total street style trendsetter (and tattoo designer, to boot), the bomber look has been rocked by several celebs over the past few months. For example, Kanye was recently spotted looking exceptionally suave in a navy blue bomber jacket earlier this spring in London. As for ladies, Ellie Goulding owns a sexy satin forest green one, and even Beyonce has been out and about in an old school letterman style bomber.
What sets Riri's Tokyo style apart, though, are all of the details incorporated into her look. She opted for a bomber that is embellished at random in cool and bold graphic prints and patches, giving an otherwise standard sleek satin bomber an edgy, bad girl bite. And come on, who else pairs a bomber with a bra top, shorts, and strappy-heeled sandals like it ain't no thang?
If Rihanna and the other stars have got you ready to dive into the world of bomber jackets, there's a plethora of choices out there! I've rounded up some of my favorites below that are light enough to wear for summer, but could also totally top off a layered look in the fall.
1. Floral Bomber
For a vintage-vibe bomber that would work equally we all over a summer dress or paired with leather pants, floral is the way to go.

2. Classic Quilted
Of course ASOS would have the perfect quilted bomber. I also love how this one is a blank slate if you want to stitch on any graphic prints or patches!

3. Mod Bomber
For a chic mod update to the bomber, color blocking is hands down the way to go.
