Universal Standard bomber jacket + pops of color!











I love the versatility of bomber jackets – they are great for layering with sweaters and even other jackets over them or as a layer underneath!


The neutral color of this one lends itself to the versatility even more as I can pair it with virtually anything. So I wanted to do just that – pair it with something more colorful and playful. I mixed the colorful beanie with a colorful print on my t-shirt and the interesting stripe detail on my shoes. My shoes are quite old (but found almost identical ones and linked them below), but man oh man, how I love these! The black and white stripes are so interesting and your eye immediately catches that detail!


I like how the print on the t-shirt peeks through for that pop of color and the beanie is a great colorful item that could stand on its own as well.


Speaking of that, aren’t hats just a GREAT way to accessorize an outfit or introduce a color to an outfit if everything else you wear is in a muted color palette? Think a neutral look with an unexpected color on your hat and you’ve got yourself an eye catcher! Same goes for scarves or gloves and autumn/ winter season is obviously a great time to do that!


Wearing: Universal Standard bomber jacket; Reclaimed Vintage abstract print t-shirt (so affordable!); Monki jeans (similar here and here); Zara beanie hat (similar here and here); Mango shoes (almost identical here).
