I call this bomber
jacket — that easily functions as a raincoat — highly functional, innovative, sophisticated, versatile, and modern. I’ve worn it in another color way in a post last month, but I tested the it against the odds in black, which of course makes it a bit easier to combine with literally any outfit in your closet. Despite looking borderline like a wet dog, I took off the jacket when I came home to find myself completely dry. And the beauty about this piece is that it doesn’t have to rain in order for you to wear it; you can pull off the bomber silhouette anywhere, and this material adds a luxe/modern touch. With the winter months a-brew, you’ll need to layer extensively; and for this look, I took a cozy cashmere cardigan and scarf from NAADAM with a leather baseball cap to top off the look. Come January, it’ll be a chunky turtleneck with an overcoat. Last, but not least, I got a pair of desert boots from SWIMS (aka being notorious for battling the elements — and winning) which may make people cringe when they think you’re wearing tan, suede shoes in the rain; but I have peace of mind and dryness of feet knowing their completely waterproof. So next time you’re enjoying a walk outside on a beautiful day and mother nature decides to throw a non-forewarned typhoon through the city, you’ll be prepared for literally anything.
