How to Style a Bomber Jacket From Winter to Spring

Winter is about creativity and how you choose to express your personal style through the mountains amount of layers, especially in the Bay Area - we’re looking at you chunky knits, sweaters and oversized cardigans! 

Enter our bomber jackets, we’ve created them in various fabrics for every season and microclimate.

We create jackets from wool, leather cotton, knit blends; our fabrication runs the gamut to suit each season and occasion. 

Frost & Cherry Blossom

To help with the transition from winter to spring, our new releases are the Frost and Cherry Blossom Bomber Jackets. These garments are made from a yarn dye knit blend, which helps when the temperatures drop, but they can also be worn during temperate climates in the spring.

Both Frost and Cherry Blossom Bomber Jackets have a unique texture that reminds us of cherry blossom trees. The radiant, budding flowers gives off a sense of refreshed perspective and radiant energy.

Styling Bomber Jackets for Fall through Late Winter

We’ve designed bomber jackets that take care of you through the fall and late winter. Whether they’re made out of mohair wool or a featherweight blend, we’ve got you covered.

Fall

When the weather is just beginning to bite and the wind is starting to have a chill, we look to our Yarn Dye Bomber Jacket and Sapphire Leather Bomber Jacket.

Throw on a lightweight scarf that balances out the color of the jacket and your top. A hat of any kind (we chose a wide brimmed fedora and a felt cap) to fight the cold but also giving you a sophisticated, cool edge.

While you're taking a weekend day trip to shuck oysters at Tomales Bay Oyster Company or strolling the Alameda Flea Market for your next furniture purchase, these bomber jackets are perfect for just about any activity.

Mid Winter

Mid winter nights are filled with festive gatherings, friends and family. While black may be the go to choice of the season, we try to experiment with deep, rich colors - it’s a great way to stand out and show your personal style.

No more boring black with our textured Mohair Wool Bomber Jacket (it’s incredibly cozy - a fashionable blanket!) and our Gunmetal Jacquard Bomber Jacket. Jewel tone accents like the purple fur wrap or dip dyed crimson cashmere scarf with matching leather gloves are a sure-fire way to add life into an all black mid winter outfit.

Wear these bomber jackets to Tosca Cafe for a night out in the city while enjoying their famous House "Cappuccino" - a blend of Armagnac, Buffalo Trace Bourbon, organic milk and chocolate ganache from our San Francisco favorite Dandelion Chocolates.

Late Winter

In the last portion of winter, we can almost taste spring. It’s so close yet the temperatures are still brisk and cold. Our solution? The Frost and Cherry Blossom Bomber Jackets.

The colors look to spring but the jacket weight is still heavy enough for winter with a fine cashmere, wool or blend sweater.

A beanie could be a great addition for the foggy Bay Area mornings! We occasionally throw one on while getting our morning coffee fixes from our favorite Mill Valley neighbors like Equator Coffee or Urban Remedy.

The Capelet - Glitz and Glamour

Introducing a completely new design, the Capelet imbues allure, beauty and romance. The combination of the luscious fabric and the easy-to-wear design makes this new garment a show stopper, day or night. 

Complementary Versatility

Whether you're going out on the town, to a festive holiday gathering or even to a casual date for a catch up over coffee, the Capelet is your go to garment. Wear it over a dress to give your outfit an extra boost of luxe or with dark shade jeans silk top to amp up a more casual look. 

A slightly shorter length than our classic Cape, the Capelet hits at the small of your back.

But just like the Cape, this new Capelet has slits for your arms - making it easier to hold your cocktail! 

Hollywood Golden Age Inspiration

As we designed and sourced fabric for the capelet, the garment began to take a personality of its own. Each capelet reminded us of a glamorous old Hollywood starlet -- Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich,  Ava Gardner, Eartha Kitt, Dorian Leigh and other beauties.  

Each caplet brings a star quality from this era, breathing life and luxe into your outfit.

The Smoke Capelet was inspired by hand-coloring, which is the pastel colored filter on photographs that was prominently used during Hollywood's Golden Age. This popular technique enhanced the star's features, which were originally muted by the black and white photography of the past.

Old Hollywood Glamour

 

The Star Capelet was influenced by the gold details surrounding the film industry, both past and present. The glitz and the glamor bestow a golden aura around movie stars - especially, our favorite, Marilyn Monroe.

Star Capelet

 

The Onyx Capelet was inspired from the prolific black and white movies produced during this Hollywood 'Golden Era'. Specifically, we love how American cinema truly came into its own by developed its unique style. Hollywood films to this day still use this style, which is characterized by heavy narrative and supporting visual.
